This is a quick diversion I worked yesterday on my final snow day. They are 8 Trolls minis from Otherworld and one that is stylistically very similar but I have no idea where I got it (except for the base its hard to notice the difference at a casual glance). I'd wanted some Trolls for wargaming that scaled well with 25 or 28mm but cheap ones were hard to come by, so I bit the bullet and went top of the line. And they are masterful figures. Lots of detail, plenty of personality, somewhat customizable (2 different heads to choose from and adjustable arms). I was quite pleased with them, though I think they came out darker than I'd have liked. I was using a green ink wash I'd not used before (PSA: kids, test your washes before going hog wild with them). No matter, they're pretty in their own special, Trollish way.
Here's one happy camper. They all have lots of warts or sores -- I did those in a very light olive so they stood out a bit. I did the nails in ivory and let the green ink stain them murky colored.
This chap brought along a friend, or what was left of him (the head he's holding was an extra Viking head from that project). Perhaps he uses it to play ball, or it might just be a snack. I'm not sure.
From behind and one from the side. They have a lot of personality, and personality go a long way.
Certainly wouldn't want to run into this guy in a dark alley, or across a battlefield.
The group shot (outside of the walls, of course).
A very productive period for you Keith - these certainly look a fearsome bunch. Always good to clear up projects that have been hanging around. Well done, and yes i gone with them being 40mm - Big Nasty Trolls alright.
