Another model from Reaper's Bones Black line. Impressed with the quality and detail, I really like the new Bones Black material.
The material is a hard'ish resin. Harder than standard Bones, but still easy to work with.

Assembly:

Pretty simple, as the parts are rather large.
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, with the metallic from Gamblin.
Actually painted this guy twice. The first time I did a much brighter green, and it looks al ittle cartoony. I then looked at pictures of crocodiles and repainted with more dull/muted coloration that looks much more "realistic", or as realistic as a were-crocidle can be, I suppse.
Took about 6 hours total to paint the oils. It was really fun doing all the skin tones.
Sealed with some matt varnish from Reaper Miniatures.

Base:

Custom made the dock part with popscicle sticks and sculpy for the four posts.
Basic sand and a couple grass tufts on the bottom, then covered in UV resin from Green Stuff World.
If I had to do it again, I would cure the resin for much longer before take it out of the mould.
The waves were then made with Liquitex medium gloss gel. Dry-brushed the tops when dry, then a little bit of very light green inking to make the water less clear.
