After while, crocodile...

This massive creature is from Mierce Miniatures.

To give you an idea of its size, the base is larger than a DVD.

It is a giant mass of resin, and he obviously towers over most things on the battlefield.

It was a challenge to get him on that base, which you can see in an earlier article on the basing process.

Since the bottom of the huge feet were flat, I had to go in "after the fact" and shim the gaps with additional pieces of the tree bark.

It was planned this way all along, and I have done a similar process on other figures as well.

Any other gaps were covered up by the mica flakes, and that did its job very well.

All of this additional work helped to stabilize and secure him to the base.

I used well over a dozen layers of Vallejo Water Effects paste for the churning waves crashing up against the rocks.

I have some views from above, as well as some other size comparison images for you coming up!


  1. That is...and I don't like to use this word but nothing else really fits...awesome!

  2. I really like the blue skin. It is gorgeous. Am I correct in thinking that the blue leans towards the green side of the color wheel, so to speak? Like a Thalo, perhaps?

    1. Thanks for the kind words! Yes, the blue skin has a slight tint of green to it. That was done in a few different ways... through glazes, adding a touch of seafoam green to blue that was far less red, and so on.

  3. Beautiful work! The skin, metal and water-effect on the base all complementing each other.
    It probably doesn't get any better than this.

    1. I am glad that you liked this. It was a huge challenge, in so many ways! :-)
