Mountain Troll 77333

Recommended Posts

Painted up this Mountain Troll up over the weekend.  I decided to go with an Ice Troll look, and I think it turned out pretty nice.  I normally paint my main colors and then use a heavy wash to bring out the details, but this time I tried something different for his skin.  I used a light gray base coat over all of the skin areas, then dry brushed two layers of blue on the back/arms, and some bone color on the stomach and chest.  I really like how it turned out, but it made touch ups from the armor pretty tricky.  I also noticed some pretty bad mold lines after I took the pictures, so I need to be more careful before I start painting to those up.  Overall, I really enjoyed painting this fig and look forward to unleashing him on a party of adventurers!  Critiques and advice are always welcome!  Thanks in advance!

Glad to see the Mountain Troll getting some action!  I absolutely love this figure, it might even be my favourite Reaper figure of all time, and I pushed hard to get him into Bones to make his price point a little easier on the wallet so more people could enjoy his awesome greatness!

That's a very good paint job! :winkthumbs:

You already mentioned the mold lines; they can be a real pain sometimes.

The other (minor) thing I'll mention is that the base looks kinda boring; maybe a couple different browns or grays to liven it up a little bit would make it look better.

      Ok, painted one of these up a few months ago and just did the other 2 a couple weeks ago. Just picked up an airbrush so this was my first time trying out some zenithal highlighting. I'm pretty happy with how the new ones turned out.
      First the old one


      Then here is one of the new ones


      And the group photo

      Finished him up a week ago or so, but just got around to pics. Second attempt at NMM, not really happy with the results, but I suppose it works. Had further plans on doing OSL from the sword but was feeling finished by the time I got that far and decided good enough. May try and come back and add it in later though.

      Had an extra one of these lying about, and decided to experiment with a limited palette. Here’s how she turned out:
      Main colors used were MSP Woodland Brown, Brilliant Green, Scholar Flesh, and Yellowed Bone (and it’s triad).
      Not completely happy with her skin tones, I tried everything up to Moth Green trying to get a light tone that still read as green. Wound up using one of the darkest greens I have, go figure. Shaded by gradually dropping the flesh tone until it was straight green, but it turned out to be a rather extreme color shift.
      I like how the base and tree trunk came out, however. The ground shade was achieved by throwing some blues and yellows together until they stopped being bad and then painting some gray on the rocks.
      All in all, I think it turned out all right for just messing around. Definitely something to practice in the future. Comments, critiques, and suggestions appreciated.
