Why would you say it's poor? I can understand not liking it or not living up to expectations, but what is wrong with it? (Genuinely curious)

From the leaked pictures it does look much better than Curze. But yeah it could be the painting job as well that is ruining the model.

Looks good too me. I like the good proportions. Especially the claws not being retarded powerfists with knives.

I still like it, I think the proportions are just about right, especially the claws, and the flayed soldiers, and skin cloak, are a nice touch.
I guess I needn't worry about this one going out of stock for Christmas.

To answer:

What others have mentioned - lack of 'awe'.
Also, he just isn't what I see the Primarch of the Night Lords looking like. He isn't as gaunt nor scary looking as I expected.
The face is pretty dire as far as sculpting goes. And his little needle claws are underwhelming. When you consider the weapons used by the other Primarch sculpts... he'd be too busy worrying about snapped his nails than eviscerating someone.

Not going to rant too much about it - but let's just say, after this few months waiting.. I feel let down. Majorly.

Painting is horrendous. Overexposed and heavy airbrushing. Doesn't make a particularly nice job that doesn't do a fairly decent job a proper job.

Wait until a decent painter gets their hand on it. It's a rush job for christmas, hence the late release date, I reckon.

I'd agree that the paint job doesn't do the model justice. I mean, he's almost an Ultramarine; needs a far darker shade of blue and a bronze closer to Warplock Bronze, then very pale flesh to contrast. Not a great fan of the face, but then again, I've found the Primarch models to be very hit-and-miss on the faces so I'm not entirely surprised.

The armor is a bit weird. Shouldn't it be a bit more jagged? Get the guy who did the Nagash End Times models please, or the dude who did the Chosen models for the Dark Vengeance set.
