Picked up this group of scorpions a while ago on when they were on sale. I got them to go with their big brother . I like scorpions, they are such a crazy mix of spider and insect, super cool creatures.
This unit consists of:
Pravo, Skorpion Minor
Tykho, Skorpion Minor
Sicatus, Skorpion Minor
I tried to base the different colors on actual photos of scorpions. And like many things in nature, there is a huge variety of species and colors out there.

Assembly:

Assembly was pretty easy, like most Mierce stuff. Which I appreciate.
The material is a type of resin that is both really easy to work with, but is still tough and holds a staggering amount of detail. Easily my favorite material to work with.
Mould lines were few and easy to remove. No milliput shenanigans or gap filling required, either.

Paint:

Primed with Badger Stynlrez primer, brushed on.
Miniature painted purley in oils. Mostly Winsor & Newton Winton line.
Took a few hours to paint each of the models. This time, I did the preliminary base coats and basic coloring, then left them for a month or so to work on other stuff. Coming back to completly dry paint, and it was not a problem at all. Oils cover so well, espcially the ligher colors, it was a non-issue.
Sealed with some matt varnish from Reaper Miniatures.

Base:

Custom made from cork.
The top of the cork was covered with crackle paste to create the cracked desert look.
It was painted with Daler Rowney acrylic inks, with some drybrushing with Vallejo acrylics, and finished off with oil washes at the end.
The dirt/gravel bits were flocking mixes from Luke's APS.
