First, the nifty mystery box. Very pretty.
The instruction manual. The inside is mostly a parts list and build instructions, so I will only post it on request. Here's how the model looks with the full diorama base, but you all know that already.

All the parts, none damaged during transport. Very clean casts.
Not shown: standard bases, one to slot into the diorama base, one for the diorama base itself.
These are all the parts that make up the primarch himself, with two head options and two sword options and accompanying scabbards.
And finally the parts making up the diorama base. One Night Lord still fighting, the rest pretty sliced up, with an assortment of corpse parts to glue to the base.
Today I've cleaned up the resin to prepare for washing and gluing in the next few days. Unfortunately, my cyanoacrylate superglue has last been used some time last year, so I need to make another trip into town before I can actually build more than the base assembly.
It wil probably take me some time to paint everything after building, but I plan to do it fairly consistently over the next few weeks.
A few of the parts were warped, but not dramatically so. All in all, I will say that this is a very high quality model from Forge World, with a minimum of hassle. The parts all fit together very well after the cleanup. Cleaning was a minimum of cutting and filing, there was very little flash, easily removed with a sharp knife.
Next step will be washing everything thoroughly, gluing the bases with JB Weld, and then starting on the primarch himself. The diorama base will be looked at afterwards.
