This was in the first batch of Mierce minis that I ever worked with. And I gotta say, this is one of my favorites. The pose is very dynamic, the stone/obsidian spears, the rocks protruding from the skin, the face, etc.
I'm really proud of how this turned out.
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. Some of the bone necklace bits were small, but not too bad.
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.
Took 2.5 - 3 hours to paint the oils, then a few days to dry. Once again, oil paint really shows fantastic results with smooth blends and transitions in very little time. I don't even want to imagine how long this would have taken in acrylics.
Sealed with some matt varnish from Reaper Miniatures.

Base:

Custom made from cork. The extra ston/obsidian bits are small shale chunks painted.
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.
