Well, I like the detail and the model itself. It looks good but whoever made the decisions to have the hands separate from the base model should think again. I am not an experienced model builder and it was a struggle to get this model together. If I could request that all small models be single pieces in the future!!! Please for us non-model makers. Other companies provide high-quality single piece models for their board games. Love the game!!!

I've bought most of the currently available resin hero models and this one is one of my favorites.
It's highly detailed in the same style shown in the black and white inks in the rulebook and adventure book. It's a style that looks alive and I really like it. Having that translated to a 3-dimensional model is impressive to say the least.
The style is thinner, more willowy than the models in the original game boxes, not in a bad way but they will look a little different next to each other. I note particularly that the gunslinger has very long legs compared to the old models and perhaps not anatomical to a real person, it's a typical art style common in comics and todays compuer games (Like Tracer in Overwatch).
The wind-touisled hair, the jacket and the minute detailing is just gorgeous. This higher detail also sets it apart from the old box included heroes. But it's the reason I bought it after all.
So, are there any downsides to the model?
It's resin, so you can't use polystyrene glue. Using superglue I found to be easy enough though.
The separate parts are the hat and the hands and revolvers and the seam is right at the wrist, at the crease in the gloves. But they are tiny.
Gluing the hat was easy, gluing the hands were, if not hard, still a bit tricky and as an experienced modelbuilder I still had to re-position and re-glue the left hand a couple of times to get it right. I only used my stubby big hand fingers, I'd recommend using a pincer for postioning the tiny hand parts.
So, when everything is in place, is it brittle? No, the arms are slightly flexible making the hand joint less prone to snapping, the arm and gun also bend some. It's actually surprisingly durable.
In the box from Flying Frog I got an instruction to wash the models before painting them as residue from moldrelease could still be on them from the casting process. I haven't tried doing this yet but it seems simple enough.
