A Troll for Blood Bowl, as chosen by my Patrons.
Pretty fun to paint, but 19 pieces for a single model is...ridiculous?
Also tough to photo - all the deep, crossing-over parts cast big shadows, and in order to light them you get major hotspots elsewhere.
I feel he turned out pretty nice.
Here are my next two guys I'm trying to crank out to catch back up on the RP challenge.
Cave Troll Champion:
The base coat for the skin is Reaper Brilliant Green, working up to Viper Green for the highlights and down to Peacock Green for the shadows. I don't really have the layering on the skin quite the way I want it though. I'm going to take a break and do the eyes and mouth before I worry about finalizing that. The club is a base coat of Vallejo Model Color Flat Earth washed with Vallejo Model Color Smoke. The mouth is just a sloppy base coat of Reaper Imperial Purple. The little spots on the club and foot where the paint got nicked by well-meaning in-laws trying to clear the table for dinner have since been touched up.
I see a lot of white/tan/gray ogres, so I wanted to try something a little different and go with a darker skin tone. This is just the base coat, it's Vallejo Model Color Chocolate Brown.
C&C welcome, thanks in advance!
The Skull Collector
This Mountain Troll, sculpted by Ben Siens, is inspired by the Abomination from Marvel Comics as seen in the early years of the Incredible Hulk. The Abomination has an interesting overall look to his skin. It's scaly and leathery, and naturally, green for a gamma irradiated monster. The back muscles of the miniature immediately reminded me of the Abomination so I ran with it. You can see for yourself how the artists drew and colored him...
As per usual, Ub3r N3rd complained that there weren't enough SKULLZ on the last miniature I posted so this one's all about the SKULLZ! Using some loose skulls from Toad King Castings as well as a trio on a flat piece, I built a skull pile of freshly peeled human sized skulls. I placed one in the corner for the one that rolled away a bit. And in his hand, the Skull Collector has an ogre skull to add to his growing pile.
I used paints from Reaper Miniatures, mainly the Moss Triad as his skin tones, my recently acquired Army Painter Warpaints, some Scale 75 metallic paints for the armor and axe and a few Vallejo paints. The troll is mounted on a piece of slate with his integral base merged with sand and ballast to bring the terrain level. The bush and vines are both created from moss. To see most everything done to him, check out his WIP.
He's joining my Joten Horde for mashing the adventurers.
Check him out in the Inspiration Gallery. (Approved)
