Initially I painted these to go with the War Alter I posted last week. Both are fine miniatures, from different eras, and I think its not contentious to suggest that the earlier one is the better! I like the big nose and tusks look much better than the blobby LOTR troll-esque look. I thought they’d go well with the Alter, as if they had been tasked to pull it and had stopped to throw rocks at something. But I had a brain fart, and did their bases differently. C’est la vie!
It’s been a while since I’ve gotten anything finished (apart from a squad of Space Marine Terminators that I completely forgot about), but I have finally finished a small gang of trolls. These beauties were mostly sculpted by Drew Williams from the Oldhammer Facebook group. There’s also a metal Citadel River Troll in there too. I chose to paint them blue because it’s not a colour I use very often, and I am mostly happy with it. I think that I should have gone a bit lighter, and I definitely should have remembered to remove the mold lines from one of the heads, but in general I am very happy with these.
