This was in the second batch of Mierce minis that I snagged on a sale. I entered this in the Reddit /r/minipainting October 2020 painting contest.
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.
Pinning the limbs was relatively simple, and 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. The metallic runes on the shield was done with Gamblin metallic oil paint.
Took about 5 - 6 hours to paint the oils. I chose to do non-metallic metal on the armor parts, but I think if I had to do it over again I would use metallic paint for everything instead. Gamblin silver paint makes a great medium for colored metal.
Sealed with some matt varnish from Reaper Miniatures.

Base:

Custom made from cork.
The top of the cork was covered a combination of Liquitex gloss medium, baking soda, and white paint for the snow.
