WizKids' Nolzur's Marvelous [Hellborn] Troll :: Thrym Project #TaosMalted

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!

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.

      This one is next in line.  He needs a better base.  
       




       
      This is a standard Reaper 1 inch base.  And a sheet of embossed styrene cobblestone, for model railroading.  I superglued it on, trimmed around it with an X-Acto, then sanded it down to 800 grit.  Any gap left is going to get the Brush On Sealer treatment to deal with the seam.  After this I just superglued the Mocking Beast on.  No pin.

      I saw the Rocky miniatures, and with how cute they are I could not resist getting one to use as a dragon to send against my players. As such, here is my take on the Flying Rocky, as a juvenile Red Dragon!
       
      Comments, criticisms and advice as ever more than welcome!

      Here is my BONES version of the Eye Beast.
      This is my project going model-by-model down the Bones I Kickstarter rewards images through all my models, and logging them as WIP.
      And bringing along any pewter versions I have for the ride.

      These guys are very rewarding and great practice for eyes.
      I coated the eyes and mouth with brush on gloss varnish to give it that live, wet, salivating look.
      Enjoy.
      C/C Welcome.

      I started this to be the BBEG for Dragon's Demand.
      I really enjoyed painting it.  This is my first full dragon miniature painted.
      I spent a lot of time on it, and I'm pleased with the outcome.
      I hope you like it.  This was my first time using Birch seed pod debris as leaves, and I think they look good.

      It's been some time since I last posted here, but I recently got and painted this WizKid beholder! Comment, criticisms and advice will be gratefully received!
       
       
      The mini in the background I am not quite ready to post as I have not based it properly yet!
