This was in the second batch of Mierce minis that I snagged on a sale. Gotta love snake/hydra things.
There is a lot of detail on this model. The three heads, armor, scales, all great stuff.
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. Went for a Greek hoplite look with bronze armor and weapons. Figured it would be fitting, considering the roots of the hydra mythology.
Took only 3 - 4 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 cork was covered with a base coat of Mod Podge and black acrylic paint, then covered with tree canopy foilage from Luke's APS.
After I was about halfway through, I toyed with the idea of throwing in some Greek stone ruins, but there isn't enough room on the base, and it already has a lot going on, so I decided against it.
