Thanks , man .
I've been picking at the base ,
I spot applied matte varnish and covered it with pastel dust and bits , let it dry and brush off the excess - repeat :

A big part of that surface , at least half , gets covered up by the slabs and more rubble .
I'm using cardboard to experiment with to arrive at the right size and shape for the slabs , prior to cutting the cores out of the 5/32 plywood .
I had them a bit larger and now they're too small .

His left foot will be farther outboard and forward than shown below .
I was trying to take some better pix but attempting to pose him atop these loose pieces of cardboard that are balanced atop those loose , beveled dowel segments - all the while his hip , torso and arm joints are moving around and changing his center of gravity - was kinda unfun .
But , you can get the gist of where this is heading :

Oh yeah, having the rubble angled like that really adds a lot of interest to the pose, adds a sense of weight and energy to the figure. Nicely done!
