Budget wise I shouldn't have gotten him but I got a very good deal and I'm impatient so why the hell not. The kit is another example of GW excellent workmanship and the gulf between their plastics and those of other manufacturers. Trickiest thing about assembly was getting the tongue into the mouth the rest of it fitted together cleanly and easily. The balance of the model was quite good as well with the majority of the torso and both legs assembled it stood up on its base without any form of assistance.

The kit though does allow you to build all three versions of the Bloodthirster if you work the pieces carefully and magnetise the different weapon options. But I went with the Great Axe of Khorne bearing BT of Insenate Rage because I like the look of that one the most. Basing wise I opted to go with putting him in flight using the skulled/flaming base as I like the look of it and had plans for how to make it look good.
