From IannickM: OldHammer Chaos Trolls (52 points)


Iannick builds upon his wonderful OldHammer Chaos army with this great quartet of Trolls.

From Iannick:
After painting a Jabberwock, I was in the mood to paint more monsters so here is a unit of 4 Chaos trolls for my Oldhammer Chaos army.  
I used the Stone Troll figures released in 1992 and sculpted by Michael Perry. They were always my favourite GW trolls so I just had to include a few in my project. I went with a green colour scheme to match the rest of my army but also to give them a more Chaotic look. I also added a tail and some bone spikes as chaos attributes but mostly I avoided conversions as I just like those figures as they are.



Next in line, Chaos warriors. Or beastmen.

Wonderful work Iannick! I've always liked these models (especially their goggly eyes) and you've done a wonderful job on these lads.

These four Trolls will give Iannick 52 points. Great job!

  2. Those sculpts are amazing. The faces are so expressive and the poses are excellent. I think I'm becoming a rabid fan of your painting!
