I really love the Mierce Miniatures trolls, masterfully sculpted by Allan Carrasco, and this one was an absolute joy to paint. The paint scheme is nothing groundbreaking, basically just copying what I have seen others do; I consider myself more of an executer than an innovator. Anyway, hope you like him, I haven't varnished yet so still open for suggestions of improvement. I have a couple more of these trolls that I intend to paint similarly, this is kind of the test model, so I really would appreciate critique! The skin was done by basecoating the various parts with Pale Olive, Muddy Olive and Olive Drab, with some blending in between. Then everything was given a wash with Olive Shadow, followed by some highlighting back up with the base colors. Perhaps I need to do more highlighting, what do you think? I do want to keep him kind of grim and gritty as befits Darklands, so I'm unsure. This was the first time I attempted to paint rusted metal. I basically followed this nice tutorial but with Reaper paints; basecoating with Muddy Brown, followed by successive stipling with Chestnut Brown, Phoenix Red and Shadowed Steel. Then the whole thing was given a wash with GW's Nuln Oil (OK, that one wasn't Reaper), and finished off with a little touch up with Shadowed Steel. I'm pretty happy with how it turned out. Perhaps I went a bit far with the amount of rust, but I wanted to push the idea that these trolls are just absolute savage, nasty brutes. Anyway, painting rust was really fun, I have some skeletons lined up for paint and they're definitely getting the treatment!
