Despite looking like he's recording the many great feats of Imperial heroes a roll of toilet paper, this is a really cool model once you get him assembled and painted up. Very 40k looking.
But... and this is a big one...
He's a monumental pain to build.
Talk about problems with a model. I don't even know where to begin. He's made of resin so you have all those issues to start with. On top of that, I don't know of a model with smaller parts than this guy. And talk about delicate, if you treat this model with anything other than the utmost delicate touch, you'll be in big trouble.
I actually had to break the paper trailing off the roll and reposition it better. I wasn't going to attempt to "bend" it back into shape. After that, I laid a thin strip of greenstuff along the underside of the paper to reinforce it. You'd never know it was there, but it adds a ton of support to the underside of the model.
Some washes and layering and he painted up fairly quick, but getting to the point where I could paint him was the biggest hurdle.
I'm sure he'll look great next to Inquisitor Lok but he took a huge amount of work to get him to this point.
I've still got some tiny details to touch up on him, like the power cables and making the script a little more prominent.
Now I know why I've yet to see one of these models in real life other than the one on the Forge World website.
