Initial impressions: excellent on lack of flash and mold lines. I had no hesitation about starting right in with paint. Reaper claims that you can paint them right out of the package, but I am generally more comfortable working over black, so I started with a coat of Liquitex black gesso. The figure seems quite flexible, about the same as the 1/72 plastics of the softer sort (say HaT rather than Zvezda). I bent the sword back and forth a bit this morning, and the gesso showed no signs of peeling or flaking.
