    77004: Cave Troll

    This is the latest piece I've finished. I did this over a couple of hours last weekend at a friend's paint night. The only thing I don't like about it is I think I may have lost some patience at the end and kind of went a little nuts with drybrushing the front body highlights.

    Cave Troll #77004

    So, I'm pretty happy with the paint job so far. The darker skin needs some highlighting and the hair needs attention. However, it is the base that I'm dragging on. I've just been throwing excess greenstuff at it after I base other minis and I have no direction. Maybe a lava stream in front of him? Water? Suggestions appreciated. :) Front: Back:

    77004 - Cave Troll (Bones)

    So I have now been Mini Painting for about 8 months, mostly following Sorastro's guides for Imperial Assault. This weekend I decided to do my first detail paint of a Bones figure (after spending way too much on Bones 3) and try some of the techniques I have learned without following a guide. I think it went well. I hope you all agree.

    Citadel C20 Trolls (1987)

    How do you best follow up a post featuring a Dwarven Slayer? With Trolls, of course! I've shown two of these trolls before, just two weeks past a year ago now, as it happens. Last week, while stuck for something to paint I asked Marouda to choose some models for me to finish and as a result, I finally got a third finished for them. Hill troll suffered a broken wrist many years ago, and with my meager skills of the day I "repaired" it by pinning and then wrapping wire around the join, as though it were bound with rope. Not the neatest of jobs, but it works passably, and I've not got the desire to destroy his wrist again in an attempt to repair it. The two that have already been shown were painted Blue, as GW-style "Stone Trolls" probably sometime during the period of 4th Edition of WHFB. Most likely the one with the boulder overhead "Cave Troll" was painted as he was a pretty good approximation of a Stone Troll. "Warrior Troll" was no doubt painted to match, and the "new" guy, "Hill Troll" was definitely started with the other two in mind. He just took a lot longer before I got around to completing him! These three together will make up a regiment-sized unit for my eventual Kings of War (Orc and) Goblin Army, made up of (mostly) older Citadel figures. Not to be confused with the Moria Goblins who I've been working on a fair bit this year. In the short-to-medium-term, there might be some crossover between the two, but only until I manage to get both playable. As it happens, I've just found that these three comprise 3/4 of the entire original C20 Troll range... queue a week-long delay in publishing this post to do a bit more BTS work... ...and also as it happens, I've also got their fourth, here, who just needed a little touching up and a rebasing from his old, 90's-style green-flocked base. I'll share Swamp Troll again sometime soonish with a bit of luck when I sort him out a pair of proper mates. And the final shot - all four of the C20 Troll Class of '87. Finally completed!

    Trolls July Resolution Challenge

    02520 Troll Matron and 02416 Cave Troll by Ben Siens For July's Bonus Challenge, Murica! American Trolls, or Trolls Gothic (linked because of troll titties) https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=10206213286268897&set=a.10204045556237001.1073741836.1166934784&type=1&theater Inspired by: American Gothic is a painting by Grant Wood in the collection of the Art Institute of Chicago. Wood's inspiration came from what is now known as the American Gothic House, and his decision to paint the house along with "the kind of people I fancied should live in that house." The painting shows a farmer standing beside a woman that has been interpreted to be either his wife or his daughter. The figures were modeled by the artist's sister and their dentist. The woman is dressed in a colonial print apron evoking 19th-century Americana, and the couple are in the traditional roles of men and women, the man's pitchfork symbolizing hard labor, and the flowers over the woman's right shoulder suggesting domesticity. The plants on the porch of the house are mother-in-law's tongue and geranium, which are the same plants as in Wood's 1929 portrait of his mother, Woman with Plants. It is one of the most familiar images in 20th-century American art, and has been widely parodied in American popular culture. I draw a Barbarian Santa (Conan Santa) themed Christmas card every year. I drew this one in 2012.

    77004: Cave Troll

    77004: Cave Troll Citadel: knarloc green, camo green, cathlan brown, thraka green, devlan mud MSP: ruddy leather, oiled leather, linen white, sun yellow P3: jack bone Please excuse the poor photography. This was painted for skin practice, it's my first attempt at trying more advanced techniques. I had a lot of fun with this one, and I think I'll be painting another in the near future. Thanks for viewing!

    Everybody love worms!

    Here are a few of my first Bones. I'm waiting for my Vampire, but thought I'd join the throng and paint some Great Worms and a Cave troll.
  10. Here he is! The grayscale troll, aka "I'm still in Kansas!" The colors are pure white, reaper pro blue black and vallejo dark gray. I'll probably still fiddle with some of the shadows and highlights-the skull still doesn't show up well in the photo. If anyone spots anything to fix please let me know. I sculpted the base (except for a few small rocks) and the bat is my favorite part!
  11. Working slowly through a bones troll. I realize this is antithetical to the Buglips process (and I eventually hope to speed things up when I get to the other nineteen), but I wanted to get a look at how the effect was working. Basically, I'm trying to blend the dark and the light green. Also trying to decide what to color his hair. Black isn't going to show up well, and I'm not sure what won't look horrible. I'm almost tempted to do a slightly greenish yellow. I haven't decided what I'll do with his boils. If I don't go for the yellow hair, I might give them yellow highlights. Or maybe yellow-white on the tips if I want it to look really disgusting. Blending is working best on the sides. Not so great on the arms and legs. Those maintain fairly solid boundaries. Somewhat improved, but you can see pretty clearly where the dark stops and the light begins. You'll notice basically nothing's painted yet except the skin basecoat. I just haven't figured out what all I want elsewhere yet.

    77004 Cave Troll

    Another mini done. This time I tried a little more with shading. I decided to finally give the grass green color from my Learn to Paint kit a go, and it formed the base coat for the troll. It may have been a little too bright, in hindsight. Mixed blue and green for the hair. Did some highlights by mixing the green with tanned skin. I wish I'd had some yellow to work with. I think that might have shown up better. You can't really see it in any of these pictures, but I lined the more obvious veins with black. I figured that would work well with the green skin. A look at the back. I added some black here and there to mottle the skin a bit more. There was also a wash with citadel's Caliban Green. The claws were done with a more-or-less even mix of Carnage Red and Sapphire Blue. I'm not totally satisfied with the base. I was trying for a swamp look, with a tanned leather/intense brown mix with green on top. I think it would have looked better if I'd reversed it. Given a root system look. Not much to say for this side. I probably did too much of the wash on the foot there. Looks almost like I lined it. Here you can see my attempt at the eyes. I had trouble getting the eyes to really stand out. Red just seemed too obvious, black was too subdued, and white looked off. I ended up going with basic white with little black dots. Not great, and not well accomplished, but at least you can tell there are eyes there. Y'know, if you squint, and pretend.

    77004-Cave Troll (Reaper Bones)

    This is my first attempt at painting a Bones figure. I admit that I chickened out and did a light spray of white primer on the model before painting. Painting this figure has been a pleasure (especially with the light weight). I haven't noticed any drop off in quality, difficulty of painting, or and special care that I needed to engage...as compared to a metal Reaper model. I like using trolls in and around swamp terrain so I painted him with that motif, and I took the time to base him properly before posting pics this time. :) DISCLAIMER: The right hand (over his head) IS in fact a more putrid/different color than the rest of the miniature. This particular troll recently had a run in with a group of adventurers and it cost him his hand, but he survived and is currently regenerating his limb. I also painted the two large pods on his back as though he's carrying a couple of his babies around after having mated a few weeks back.
