Alright, so my armature wasn't right for this dude so I rebuilt it into the computers shape. His body joints were too expensive for me to want to bake it into clay, so I jimmied this ramshackle thing up. Basically an X, then had to bend it out into the correct shape. Wrapped it up in wire and then putty steel. Finally the clay base shape was baked on top. All that is left is to model his actual body.
