Picked these guys up on sale. I previously painted a couple larger monsters that are very similar, and this is the monstrous infantry unit of the same variety. This unit is made up of five minis

Big demony dudes with giant axes. What is not to like? They are so cute!

Assembly:

Assembly was pretty easy, like most Mierce stuff. Which I appreciate.
The material is a type of resin that is both really easy to work with, but is still tough and holds a staggering amount of detail. Easily my favorite material to work with.
Mould lines were few and easy to remove.
I really wish more manufacturers took notes from how Mierce not only minimizes mould lines, but on the rare occasion they exist, they are located in places that are either easy to clean or hiding where they would be covered or not viewable.

Paint:

Primed with Badger Stynlrez primer, brushed on.
Miniature painted purley in oils. Mostly Winsor & Newton Winton line, Williamsburg, and Gamblin.
Took a little less than three hours to paint each of the models. I filmed most of the painting process, and one of these days I will figure out what to do with those videos.
The banner was free-handed, wet on wet oil paint. Tried to keep it a very simple design, on account of the unit being demon guys, I doubt there are many demon artists lurking around.

Base:

Custom made from cork.
The top of the cork was covered with crackle paste to create the cracked desert look.
It was painted with Daler Rowney acrylic inks, with some drybrushing with Vallejo acrylics, and finished off with oil washes at the end.
The dirt/gravel bits were flocking mixes from Luke's APS, and the grass tufts were from Green Stuff World.
