Dislike both mount and rider. Let me clarify - great model, great miniatures, BUT... They are NOT Archaon in my mind's eye, sorry.
The mount looks more like an action figure than a true animal monster. Too much humanized arms and legs, not feral enough. Booooo. IMHO.
Great sculpt, great work, in a purely technical sense. Just not my cup of tea.
The more I look at it, the more I dislike the entire thing. And I'm not sure it's at all well designed. I suppose there is a great deal of sculpting skill (or cad design) involved but the design decisions don't work for me.
I would think that I'm completely done with modern GW models if it wasn't for the end times nurgle.

I totally agree. Something about these new digital sculpts doesn't work for me. I paint all the time and it's always a mix of eras of figures. The most satisfying things to put paint on are the older minis. They may have lacked some of the detail and texture, maybe the swords were a little fat...but damn they had character.
