I prepped the figure in the usual way; soaking it in a dish of water with a couple drops of dish-soap added, then giving it a light scrub with a soft toothbrush, and then rinsing and drying it.

I forgot to take a "before" photo, so above is one from the Reaper online store to show what it looked like originally. I first sliced off the mallet in his left hand. Then I cut his right arm at the shoulder and elbow and trimmed and then superglued them so that it would (hopefully) look like he was using his scepter to point. I then glued the figure to a black-primed 1" fender washer with Aleene's Tacky glue, and then placed the figure in my painting grip.
When the wash was dry, I painted their eyes, and then highlighted their skin with a mix of the base "Golden Oxide" with some Ceramcoat "Maple Sugar Tan".
I let the figure dry overnight and the next day I gave it a coat of Americana "DuraClear Matte" varnish. Then, when the varnish was dry, I used some white glue to flock the base. Another overnight dry, and I sprayed it with Testor's Dullcote".
