Andrew breaks from his historicals and delights us with this wonderfully vile troll.
Today is my final entry before I break off for the festivities, This was another of my EBay shinyitis moments, I don't know why I bought him but you can bet he was cheap!!
I don't often delve into the world of fantasy painting and monsters but have been known to do the odd bit. This was a complete joy to paint lots of fun and plenty of crisp clear detail. Allegedly this Troll is a 28 mm miniature, yeah right!! the blighter is a full 50 mm from foot to eye, His foot is nearly as big as the 28 mm dwarf he is stood on. Yes I had a spare dwarf and decided to fit that into the diorama as well. There just has to be a story about this somewhere!!
Again I have gone heavily into the base work for this and created a swampy marsh area to compose them in. If this qualifies as a beast then please accept this as my first entry into that category.
That is a very cool troll Andrew! I have to laugh as he looks like he's just about to have a terrific sneeze! Perhaps he's allergic to dwarfs. I really like his skin tone and you've done a very nice job on the groundwork as well.
This fine fellow and his poor dwarf victim will give Andrew 23 points. Great work and Happy Christmas Andrew!
