02828: Thornback Troll as a Fell Ogre


Recommended Posts

I found this guy in the clearance bin at my FLGS.

 

post-7739-0-58394100-1354065417_thumb.jpg

 

When I started painting him, I decided he was more Ogre like than Troll for my campaigns. And with the thorny back he must be some kind of demon/devil spawned version so I went red-skinned.

 

The skin is patchy in places with a ruddy orange.

 

And I decided on the eye style after watching an episode of FaceOff on Syfy.

 

He's painted tabletop level IMO and using washes over solids with some highlighting. I used a micro pen to create some veining effects on his skin.

 

The wood club has been painted to resemble a piece of a stalactite/stalagmite to keep the cave feeling of the base.

 

The figure is covered in a matte varnish for toughness. I just finally picked up a can of Dullcote to bring the shine back down.

 

I am comfortable with the piece as is for the players to be afraid of but C&C is always welcome and will be applied going forward.

 

And yes, I know, better pics will help. I have a camera coming for Christmas. :;):

I think the teeth and spikes could be a little more dirty.

 

I think the whites just got blown out by the camera (my phone). They have a bit of yellowing on the teeth and claws. The thorns on his back have a bit of the ruddy orange nearer the base leading up to a plain ivory. I'll see about revisiting them before I hit the piece up with Dullcote.

 

I painted this awhile ago (pre-KS) and have been busy doing assembly and basing for the plethora of unfinished figures.

 

Thanks to both of you for your comments.

Ive finished one as well (he is pink, we called him Pepto) its one of my favorites. my only suggestion would have been that the wraps on his hands/wrist should have been more of a tan/brown color to tie it in with the base more (that and hit it with some dull coat to kill the shine). other than that, its nice :)

My other Thornback I tried to copy your Pepto scheme, but then changed my mind. I still don't know how he'll end up painted!!

      This is my contribution to the RCL trios category with @Evilhalfling and @Kuroneko. I decided on a Hampshire pig instead of spots. I love how much character the faces have.

      When Stonehaven started doing their kickstarters, they usually released their version of a troll or two with each one.  Since I liked the variety of elves, dwarves, and other smallfolk in the kickstarters i tended to get the completionist so i found myself with a bunch of these, even though resin is not my favorite medium to work with.  I did a few and the rest sat... until i needed giants for my Runelord campaign.  I needed hill giants and i dont like hill giants as depicted by the typical miniatures for them, but the trolls were cute and they fit the size i was looking for and the legend that hill giants have tails was born.  
       
      Anyway, here are the latest 2, it brings my total now to 5 hill giant/trolls and one broccoli Ent.  the party has faced 3 of them previously and it was a mixed success:  they won, but they went looking for a place to heal and rest immediately afterwards!  (come to think of it, Stonehaven makes up a rather large part of the party, the Kobold ninja, the grippli paladin, the half-orc barbarian and the dwarven cleric are also Stonehaven sculpts)
       
      anyway for your viewing pleasure:

      Done. Tried a new technique for me with very dark green base acrylic with the skin tones on top. I kinda like it.

      I was going for an Ice Ogre vibe here.  Being that he is likely surrounded by frost-resistant and fire-vulnerable enemies, I wanted his shield to be a fire weapon.
       
      This has always been a favorite model of mine from BONES I.
       
      I hope you like it as much as I do.
