Scorpions are tool cool. A lot of people think they are gross, but I think they are neat. Such a weird spider-like creature.
The details on this figure are really very good, and once again showing that Reaper Bones models should be held in higher regard than they generally are.
The material is Reaper Bones resin.

Assembly:

Pretty simple. The leg pairings could each only fit in one place.
Like pretty much all Reaper minis, the mould lines were easy to remove.

Paint:

Primed with Badger Stynlrez primer, brushed on.
Miniature painted purley in oils. Mostly Winsor & Newton Winton line. Took a few hours.
I based the blends and transitions on pictures of both real scorpions and some painted minis. Like many things in nature, there are a HUGE variety of species, will all kinds of colorings.
Sealed with some matt varnish from Reaper Miniatures.

Base:

Custom made with joint compound spread over a plastic base.
When dry, some bits of cork rock from Luke's APS as well as grass tufts from World War Scenics were put on top.
It was painted with oil paints at the same time as the mini.
