Branching Out

I've started to lock down the parts on the Screaming Oak, pinning stuff into place (blu-tec somehow doesn't really stand up to the vigours of battle) and refining the pose a little - I've added some more branches on the middle of his back where it seemed a little bare, and tweaked the position of the head a little - I could use the wisdom of the mighty internet here, is this better, screaming in agony at the heavens, or is the previous version where he looked a little more down better?

Also, should he have a couple of horns?

Or not? 

The white base is because I have this strange infatuation with Warmachine beveled bases, and prefer to use them on all my miniatures. Alas, they're only made in 30, 40 and 50 mm, plus a very big one for Gargantuans, so I have to make them myself on my lathe to get the right diameter - yes, I know that the Verminlord Corrupter has an oval base. Yes, I calculated the circumference (106 mm) to have a corresponding round base (not a fan of oval bases). Yes, it is technically not legal. No, I don't care at all. ;)
