Hellborn Troll

from WizKids' Nolzur's Marvelous Miniatures

 

I stopped at AC Moore today and picked up one of the FolkArt Pickling Washes I didn't have while my wife was shopping for school play costume materials.  Nearby I found FolkArt Ultra Dyes and picked up two colors to check out; Purple Rain and Pucker Up (a yellow).

I have enjoyed using the Glass Enamels with the long cure time before and thought these might work similarly.   I decided to wash my troll with the Purple Rain to see how it comes out and goes on.

It's fairly thick out of the bottle but I might not have shaken it enough.  It was taking forever to dry so I hit it with some Testors Dullcote to speed the process and reduce the shine.  It's glossy like inks.

 

Next, I used Reaper Blood Red to give him the Hellborn look I wanted.

Then I pulled out Reaper Violet Shadow to get his hair, teeth and claws darkened.

I then went back over the boney bits with the FolkArt Ultra Dye.  It'll put the glossy touch to the claws and teeth.

 

I am quite happy with him so far.  

 

Stay tuned and Enjoy!

Definitely NOT what I’d expect for a troll color scheme!  This is very inventive.  Eager to see where you end up with it.

I've done similar skin tones with my Fell Ogre.

 

And the back of the Reaper Hellborn Troll.

 

I like alternate skin tones or suggestions of different heritages like Kagunk, Ogre Chieftain (Son of the Magi).

 

Thanks for the links, Thrym. I like a variety of skin tones also. You have some beauties in the trio.

Okay, I did his legs the same way as his torso.  The log is Reaper Dragon Red, the Reaper Griffon Tan and finally Reaper Red Shadow.  The ground is Reaper Rotting Wood.

Here are some quick pics I took before heading to bed.  Will get the studio back out for better shots and a rundown of paints tomorrow.
