'Hēl' - Wolfen Grave Guardian from Confrontation Miniatures

I know, I know, this one's a little out of left field.

I picked up this figure when we were visiting Paris quite a few years ago - back when the Confrontation range of miniatures was fresh out of the gates and turning heads with their groundbreaking sculpts. I really like the dynamic pose of this guy (and ever since I was a kid I've had a soft spot for werewolves as they typically scare the bejeezus out of me). 

A while back I played in a friend's RPG campaign and I made up a character just so I could use this figure. His name was 'Hēl' and I remember he was pretty bad ass (until he met a rather unpleasant and sticky end). 

As reality often reflects fiction, he was smashed to smithereens in a recent house relocation by our movers, and at the time I just couldn't face trying to repair him. Nonetheless, time truly heals all as I came across him just the other week, the muse hit, and so here he is, reconstituted in all his weird snaggletooth glory. (I have to apologize as I neglected to take some before-and-after pics to show his reanimation.)

Back to some Napoleonics in a few days...
