Stonehaven Troll =(

Recommended Posts

So, aside from the hope that they'll add the troll to the gnome kickstarter, does anyone know where I can get this awesome troll? He's really quite impressive, and if I had known about kickstarter in July, I would have gotten in on this, but alas, I did not.

I don't intend for this sound mean but the store isn't supposed to get it at all. It was KS exclusive.

That said - I don't object if they want to make it generally available; others getting a troll isn't going to change how awesome mine is.

I would love it if they were to release the troll, with some minor variation (maybe shift his arms?), that way they can say that the one we got was KS exclusive and not upset anybody, but also be able to get this amazing little guy out there to the public ::D:

Let's be honest, nothing would appease the meanies unless it was a completely different sculpt.

 

I'm afraid you're likely right. Nevertheless at that point they'd be unreasonable and were I Stonehaven, I'd go ahead with the modified release.

Didn't check out that Kickstarter so no skin off my nose. I just happened to know the store existed.

 

It is a nice looking troll though and wouldn't mind it myself.

 

I do have a penchant for playing dwarves in various campaigns and some new blood, like those shown, is always welcome. I especially like the Dwarf Accessories which was added to my wishlist on Amazon for my family to consider. :)

Okay, here's the thing. I do have a little bit of insider knowledge about the troll that I've chosen not to share on the kickstarter comments page because Stonehaven hasn't made a final decision yet and I didn't want to raise anyone's hopes or get anyone angry.

 

 

But since we're usually able to play nice, I'll share it here... And with all the lurkers I guess.

 

 

Stonehaven is still sitting with a fairly large number of unsold trolls from the first kickstarter production run. It represents a significant amount of dollars tied up in inventory that they haven't been able to sell because of their promise of it being a kickstarter exclusive. Obviously this is not a good position for a new startup company to be in.

 

 

They've been feeling out some of their backers for feedback. I was one. My own suggestion, and I've no idea what StoneHaven will actually end up doing, is that they should offer the existing stock, while the quantities last, on their current and future kickstarters only! Make it clear that no more will be produced to fill demand, it's first come first served with all orders being filled with the existing stock that Stonehaven has sitting in their warehouse/garage/living room.

 

 

I also suggested that perhaps they could also offer it at any conventions that they happen to attend.

 

 

 

So long story short. Maybe there'll be trolls available, maybe there won't. We'll have to wait and see.

Well, if the same guy shows up, I'll be ecstatic. It both gives me an opportunity to get another, if I can afford it, and if not, then I won't feel gutted for having missed something I can't get later. For me, it's a win/win and I approve ::D:

      Still trying to cover all my basics with this classic troll design. I'm trying to get better with my basing, this time incorporating sand and some broken up wood chips.

      This guy has been sitting in my unpainted minis pile for a while, looking forward to eventually getting to use him in dnd.

      Giant Tortoise from Stonehaven Miniatures. I have more of their stuff than any company except Reaper. They are actually running a kickstarter right now (in case anyone is interested).

      After completing my Reaper training kits, I'm ready to start tackling my old 80s lead minis from my youth.  I tried painting a couple when I was twelve years old and failed so miserably I literally thought there was no way I would ever be able to even attempt this hobby and it was just better left to others with more talent.  Thanks Reaper for making the awesome training sets and helping me try again after over 35 years.  So without further ado I begin digging into my vault from the 80s.  Apologies if this forum is for Reaper products only, no insult intended.
       
      So I think this baddie might be a Ral Partha Hill Troll, but not sure. Anybody have some insight?

      For your consideration, I present Kallaguk, Troll King. This model was painted as part of a theme back in March 2020 where green needed to be the primary color for a Twitch streamer I follow. I had a lot of fun with this one trying my best to only use various shades of green. Happy with its result. C&C welcome.
