This midden beast was part of a pair I picked up, and in the first batch of minis I ordered from Mierce Miniatures.
Really impressed with the quality and detail, and a lot of fun to paint.
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 fit together very closely.
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.
This and the other midden beast were painted together, jointly taking a little over 2 hours to paint the oils, then a few days to dry.
Sealed with some matt varnish from Reaper Miniatures.

Base:

Custom made from cork.
First time using Vallejo Water Texture, and gotta say, not a fan.
It takes a long time to dry, and it shrinks a ton. Probably more made for very thin applications.
If I had to do it over again, I would use the UV resin from Green Stuff World, as it would be cured in minutes.
I did use a couple drops of some Daler Rowney acrylic inks in the resin to give it the swamp look.
Flocking was bits from a sheet of tree canopy foilage from Luke's APS.
