This was in the first batch of Mierce minis that I snagged on a sale. Been sitting around for a long time and finally got around to finishing him.
Like all Mierce minis, there is a lot of detail on this model, which was a ton of fun to paint.
Really impressed with the quality and detail.
The material is a hard'ish resin. Not as hard as some, this was relatively easy to work with.

Assembly:

Pretty simple, as all the parts are rather large.
The parts all fit together without the need for any Milliput shenanigans.
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.
Took about 3 - 4 hours to paint the oils. Decided to go with a color shceme and pattern based on the Australian thorny devil, because A) they are adorable, and B) they live in the desert, and C) it would be way different from the ubiquitous green lizard scheme.
Sealed with some matt varnish from Reaper Miniatures.

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.
The dirt/gravel bits were flocking mixes from Luke's APS. The grass tufts were from World War Scenics.
