Citadel Stone Troll with Axe – (1992)

Recommended Posts

Another old Troll today.

 

This figure is one of Michael Perry's efforts that redefined the look of Warhammer Trolls back in 1992 for 4th Edition. So leaving that narrow era of 3rd that "purists" feel is "Oldhammer". With 4th Edition WHFB, the armies began to be overhauled and have their looks unified in many ways, putting an end to the "rough and ready" and slightly chaotic look that forces and their ranges had previously.

The old C20 trolls were retired and replaced with the new "Stone Trolls" and "Swamp Trolls", sculpted by Michael Perry. Although the Swamp Trolls were superseded a few years ago by the plastic River Trolls, four of the original six of these Stone Troll sculpts are even still available today, some 23 Years later, including this guy.That's one hell of a distinguished time of service on this model.

I first started on this guy 5+ years ago, at the same time I started on the other blue C20 trolls. As with the "Hill Troll", this guy got "left behind" and was never finished. Since I managed to finish the Hill Troll a couple of weeks ago, it motivated me to pluck this part-painted guy off the desk and finish him off. All I'd done was the base, the basecoat in blue with a wash and drybrush on his cracked back texture - no details. I've gotta say that I really enjoyed finishing him off, and if I weren't in the midst of a self-imposed moratorium on starting new models, I'd be all over the rest of these which I've got tucked away somewhere.

As you can see, this guy is much larger than the older models. As KoW uses regiments of 3 and 6 in size for Trolls and I already have 6 of the older models ready to go, if I manage to use him in a game before I paint up some more, he can be used as a Troll Bruiser (Hero).

The Perry stone trolls are what define the look of trolls in my mind. A very impressive and impressionable mini. You did a great job on it.

      Presenting the Brewmistress, a Goblin Mage from Games Workshop, this diminutive herbalist can be found plying her trade along the winding road between Veilmouth and Silverton. For two coppers she'll let you take a swig of whatever she's brewing at the time, while her potions are always beneficial, it's probably best not to consider what's in it.
       
      Despite getting a little lazy with the ingredients rack towards the end, I'm really pleased with how this one turned out.

      Hello there!
      Now it's no secret that I'm a fan of Games Workshop minis, there's two problems with this though, I can't paint armies (I've tried, I lose interest after the first few minis) so I miss out on the interesting units, and just buying heroes gets rather expensive!
       
      Then I discovered their Underworlds game, getting little bite-sized versions of the various factions (often with fancy bases!), and now I'm obsessed.
       
      This year I want to try and put a dent in this particular pile of plastic (or, at least cancel out the new ones I'm getting), and thought a project thread might help.
      I've made a spreadsheet, ran a number generator and picked the first ten candidates.
       
       
       
      Laserian - An evil Knight and Balmonoth - Insidous Rat-man.
       

       
      The Champion - Wandering Undead Warrior (He's not actually an Underworlds mini, he's one of only two Games Workshop resin minis I brought that were cast well enough to keep, but he fits in the skeleton faction.) and One-Eyed Thabron - Orc Mercenary.
       

       
      Awil-sin - Fey Elf and Jafari - Cultist.
       

       
      Yrkill - Sky Dwarf Adventurer and Fahime - Evil Elven Assassin.
       

       
      Padean - Barbarian of the Western Plains and Elodie of the Blade - Elven Peacekeeper.
       
      Started working on Elodie:-
       

       
      Being an Elf I used Elf Fleshtone > Flesh Wash > Elf Fleshtone > Elf Fleshtone/Light Flesh, added a drop of Scarlett Red to the highlight mix for her lips, and gave her a pretty decent (IMO) pair of eyes.
      Next is her wacky hair.

      Presenting my Beastman Champion and true child of Atmos (In my own fantasy setting I base some of my Games Workshop stuff in, Beastman are a race of former humans who were changed by worshipping an ancient, goat-headed god called Atmos. Occasionally, an actual goat-headed Beastman will be born amongst them and will be considered Atmos's offspring, they then get all the best food and stuff and grow up to be one of the leaders or shamans of the various tribes.) Who is from the Warhammer: Underworlds range by Games Workshop.
       
      I'm super pleased with how this guy turned out, but I really need to buckle down and actually finish one of these Underworlds sets.

      Presenting the Ogre Tyrant by Games Workshop, he is very heavily armed.
       
      This one took a while, it's very much one of those minis where the more you work on it, the more details you find.
      I am very pleased with how he turned out though.

      Presenting the 'Shroomancer, part of the Gooblapalooza set from Games Workshop who are all Goblin Wizards with different powers. This one alters the reality around him by getting really high on mushrooms, considering his "creations" appear to be attacking him this doesn't seem to be the most reliable of powers.
       
      Really pleased with how this one turned out, I think the super cartoony sculpt just gelled well with the way I paint.
