This is one of three models from the Reaper Learn to Paint Kit, and one of the very first minis I ever painted.
This is a great learning model, as skeletons and undead feature quite heavily is pretty much all games. And who doesn't love some skeletons?
The details on this model are minimal. The rib cage is nice, but that is about it. This is a good example of early Reaper Bones models, where sculpt quality was squarely in the "you get what you pay for" bracket, but illustrates just how far Bones has come in the past few years.
The material is Reaper Bones resin.
The figure comes attached to small base.

Assembly:

None.

Paint:

Primed with watered-down white acrylic paint, brushed on.
Miniature painted with acrylics, Reaper Miniatures Master Paint series.
This one was pretty fast to paint, probably only an hour or two max.
Washing with Agrax Earthshade really helped the definition.
Sealed with some matt varnish from Reaper Miniatures.

Base:

Just some PVA glue and basic sand for flocking.
Covered and drybrushed with some acrylic paint.
