I really like this model. It is very dynamic, has a good combination of skin and fur, and great facial details.
This was the first mini I painted that was larger than a standard human. As such, I was pretty nervous, due to the common misconception that larger models are more difficult. With acrylics, this is true to an extent, just due to the increased surface area and fast drying paints. But if this was using oil paint, it would have been an absolute breeze and a joy.
The material is Reaper Bones resin. The figure comes attached to base which I removed.

Assembly:

None.
Mould lines were easy to remove.

Paint:

Primed with Badger Stynlrez primer, brushed on.
Miniature painted with acrylics, Reaper Miniatures Master Paint series.
Being one of my first painting projects, it is hard to remember exactly how long it took. Probably a few hours at least, with trying layers and highlights.
The chains were painted with metallic paint. Washing with Nuln Oil really helped the definition.
The OSL was done with Vallejo flourescent paints
Sealed with some matt varnish from Reaper Miniatures.

Base:

I had just built a bunch of stone ruin terrain out of XPS foam, and as such, I had a lot of leftover foam blocks.
I saw a similar setup on a Google image search of a glowy green sewer base, so I replicated it.
XPS foam for the blocks, hot glue for the sewery bits.
The OSL was done with Vallejo flourescent paints.
