This bad boy is the centerpiece of Egyptian-themed mass of minis.
It was really fun to paint, and there are lots of details to play with. There are both large skin, cloth, and metal areas, combined with tiny details of gems, inscriptions, and leather.

Assembly:

Very simple, with just the arms and mace. I did cut the mace at the handle and insert a pin for support, as the bones material was pretty thin there, and wanted to prevent any potential sagging in the future.
Mould lines weren't bad and easy to remove.

Paint:

Primed with Badger Stynlrez primer, brushed on.
Miniature painted purley in oils. Mostly Winsor & Newton Winton line. Metal done with Gamblin metallic oil paints.
Took a couple hours to paint the oils, then left a few days to dry. I also tried glazing the gems with Daler & Rowney acrylic flourescent inks. Probably not necessary, but I like using inks.
Sealed with some matt varnish from Reaper Miniatures.

Base:

Custom made with the Egyptian texture roller from Green Stuff World on Scuply clay.
The clay bits were embedded into joint compound.
Base was first covered with Mod Podge + black acrylic paint, then painted in a couple quick acrylic layers and drybrushes.
