This was in the first batch of Mierce minis that I ever worked with. This guy turned out surprisingly well.
I love the detail of this model, the face, the weapons, armor, hair, the cuts on the skin, everything.
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 armor was done with Gamblin metallic oil paint. I initially did the armor has NMM, but I switched to real metallic paint, and the effect is so much better.
Took only 2.5 - 3 hours to paint the oils, then a few days to dry. Once again, oil paint to the rescue. Such a big time savings.
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 flocking was some base ready mixes from Luke's APS.
