I think the model looks great. Considering she is a sniper, and a melee fighter, the challenging pose makes sense.
Even if she is a melee fighter, she still isn't a Khorne berserker, nor some savage barbarian chieftain, right?
Sorry seekingone that it's unappealing to you, I can't tell you how many times I saw a new model pic and went ewww until I held it in my hand. Maybe a different paint job might spark you.
Now this might be true indeed, and that's what I'm hoping for. I also noticed the same thing on many occasions: "in person" the models tend to look far better than on pictures, and that happens particularly often with Eldar models for some reason.
But still... just now I've been scrolling through the pics of the Blackstone Fortress models on the site, and it struck me once again how weird this Eldar character looks compared to other characters in the game. Have you seen the Kroot mercenary? Now that's the right pose and attitude for a scout, or pretty much anyone who's armed with a long-barreled rifle. And literally all other characters also look like serious and composed guys who mean business, with the sole exception of the ranger who looks like a puffed-out and grotesque mess of limbs and weapons sticking out in all directions
If the designers wanted an Eldar character to look grotesque in stark contrast to the rest of the crew, why didn't they make her a Drukhari Archon or Succubus?!
Oh well, I guess I can only wait for an opportunity to see the model in person and hope against hope that it looks far better up close
Sorry for this rant.
