Ever since seeing the Flail Snail in the D&D Monster Manual, I knew I needed one. They are so cool. And cute. Look at him, he's adorable!
The material is Reaper Bones Black resin. Harder than the regular Bones material, and holds more detail, but still very easy to work with.

Assembly:

Very little. A few large pieces and they all fit together nicely. The smallest bits where the eye stalks, but they were easy to work with.
Mould lines were easy to remove.

Paint:

Primed with Badger Stynlrez primer, brushed on.
Miniature painted with oils, except the shell, with used flourescent Daler & Rowney acrylic inks, to try for the shiny effect. The shell was first layered with silver arcrylic paint before putting the inks on.
Painting and blending the model was pretty simple. The whole thing took a couple hours.
Sealed with some matt varnish from Reaper Miniatures.

Base:

Custon with cork, PVA glue, flocking with sand and rock bits.
Some light dry-brushing and inking of the flocking after drying.
