I don't care what the umbra's arm is doing; He could have been picking his nose. That wasn't really my point. My point was, that from the crappy photos I've seen, the hand looks sculpted onto her leg, making it difficult to remove for me to remove it (and I am NOT great at conversion/sculpting work). If the hand is optional, than I could easily just clip off the umbra for some rubble/rock (also point the sword down by her side instead of directly raised to towards air. jesus christ, that looks like a nightmare to transport).
Basically what you said; Minus the gore part, because I don't really shy away from gore (unless it's cringey edgelord shit, or just excessive). Also umbra grasping at Joan before his final demise while she raises her sword for the finishing blow is a super specific narrative moment - which would work awesomely in a piece of art. However, I simply would have preferred a cleaner mini that works within any context.
I'm going to stick with the LE model
