Roman takes over with the review now.
Allright jungle,
let's have a look what we got here by NS, NonSenseminiatures.
First a square box with digital camouflage on it. 

Inside we find - wrapped up - in bubble wrap: The Orc bust we will speak about. Cast in resin.
First impression: A beginner friendly bust as it does not take ages for building.
Packing recieves 2/5 points.

The bust arrives in three parts. Main body and two horns for the Orc's helmet. Assembly points reached 5/5.

Having a closer look the sculpt of the Orc shows plenty of details, cast in one piece this is really nice if you look at all the little horns, rings, hair and details. The sculpt itself does not show a brand new subject, nor a specific design of an Orc, but delivers the character pretty well. Some parts of the sculpt look really well done - face, skin and details, where other areas lack final detailing, for example fur. The sculpt itself recieves 3/5 points.

The sculpt offers plenty of different materials to work on, like bones, orc skin, hair, metals, leather, fabrics and other armour materials. Together with the easy assembly it makes him a good training project for beginners and intermediate painters alike.

The quality of the cast is good. 3/5 points here. 
Out of the box it looks a bit shiny and you might have to clean it with soap before priming.

Cleaning the model was quite easy as there was no major mould line or such to be found. The only thing - if you want to do it - is removing the resin part under the model, but this could also be used for placing it to a plinth.
4/5 points here.

Due the shine it was quite hard to take good photos of the sculpt so we assembled him - even we decided to place the horns in a different angle - and primed him black and white, without cleaning him first. GW's black primer did a good job on it and we are not sure if you really have to wash the model, but please decide this for yourself.

Allright, let's sum this up:

Packing: 2/5
Assembly: 5/5
Sculpt: 3/5
Cast Quality: 3/5
Preparation: 4/5
Price: 4/5 
Overall: 21/30

This Orc bust is a very beginner friendly sculpt that can bring you quite the fun if you like Orcs and do not want to spent ages with cleaning and preparing. A good training on different materials and texture can be done on all these several different materials.
