Cheers mt he was good fun to paint I wasn't sure what direction he was going in at one point but it all pulled together!


This weekend I assembled some Wolves from Mierce which I'll use for Frostgrave I expect, these are the original sculpts not the new ones.



I also undercoated and started the base layer of blue for the first three trolls, progress is dead slow but its better than none at all.



I cant remember the paints I used one the first troll as it was many years ago so i'm going to try and mix and match I still have the same paints so it possible I may get it right!

The Trolls are coming along well.

Today I managed to finish the Reaper Bones troll who will be my Dankhold Troggoth.

Its my first time painting a Bones mini and they aren't as bad as I thought they would be.









The other four trolls arent behind hopefully I'll have them done for next weekend.

Nice job on the Troll.

I think he's one of their newer Bones Black minis, they're not so rubbery and tend to have crisper details than the older Bones stuff.

I probably wouldn't have guessed that was Reaper Probably due to size and gnarliness of the sculpt, both of which are great. Good call for your dankest of trolls, and solid paintcraft

Some more minis under coated, hopefully I’ll have a supply drop of more trolls before I start these.

Half of the Elder Scrolls starter, the other minis are still waiting to be assembled and some wolves for either Elder Scrolls or Frostgrave!



See you soon!

Those trolls are fab, always liked how the Warhammer troll designs sat somewhere between slightly goofy/comedic with the gangly limbs and exaggerated faces, and just plain imposing.

Thanks everyone the trolls have been really fun to paint!

Had a massive supply drop on the weekend of all the things I’ve ordered over the last few months!

Some rule books for solo play, these will give me so many more done projects to plan, really excited!

Here we have Frostgrave Perilous Dark, the Elder Scrolls rule set, Rangers of Shadow Deep and Palaeo Diet for some caveman action!



Some more models, the last few trolls and the other two box sets for Elder Scrolls.



And lastly a drop load of scenery for all these games!



I managed to get both the trolls built and one of the woods. I also put together the second half of the ElderScrollsBleak Fall Barrows set and a couple of Darklands miniatures which I’m going to use for my adventure party for Frostgrave!



Exciting times I’m back for good now!

I This weekend I managed to finish the last of the trolls for my Troggoth Slayers campaign.

The great Troll Boss and his buddy Mollog who is standing in as a Rockgut Troggoth.

Both very fun minis to paint although the Troggboss had a few issues poor fella, first off he got stuck in my dogs tail while painting and lost an ear which the dog found before me and decided to eat it! Then when painting the critter on his base I decided to try out my new chameleon paints, I had issues getting the paint out of the bottle and the bam the top came off and paint went everywhere lucky for me most of it went into my paint palette and I was able to poor it back in. The trolls came off unscathed thank goodness as that was the last part I painted. So does anyone know if the bottles need the ends pushed though or anything? My paint palette now looks amazing and changes colour when the light shines on it!







Next up for me is some woods to give me enough scenery for my first solo game!

Latest troll-kin look great, and loving the centipede.

I have a few of the GSW colourshifts and not had issues with the bottles - although in the past I have done similar with a couple of vallejo paints, trick is if paint doesn't come out straight away then check if the nozzles blocked before just squeezing really hard

Cheers Graven its really nice scenery to paint.

----------------------

I had my first game in years today, I've been working up to play the Age of Sigmar solo campaign Troggoth Slayers for a few months now painting trolls and scenery. I already had a undead AoS army that never saw the light of day. So Krell and his undead minions are going out to slay some trolls!.



They came a cross a waddle of trolls on the frozen lakes of strangelweed swamp.



The Black Knights to the flank slamming into the far unit or Rockgut's the nights managed to take a troll down ton the charge with tehir deadly lacnes whicle their horses took another troll to its kness through their stamped.



They Knights lost a two knights in the ensuing combat,

On the left flank Krell and his horde waded through the woods while the Trolls opposite tauntednted them throwing rocks into their ranks, bones went flying but Krell rebuilt them as they advanced.

Finally they made the charge crashing into the trolls





The Black Knights then charged in to assist, I must admit I did fear they would get wiped out by the trolls but Krell made sure their ranks stayed stable.



In the end the trolls were just over powered by the undead forces and were crushed underfoot. Krells abilitys to bost the 20 man unit just led to so many attacks they couldt loose!




For the next step in their campaign both units are down a member but Krell will take care of that, however we do have to put up with some torrential rain which means my army cant run.

And they we go I had lots of fun play this I really didn't expect my skeletons to do as well as they did! Victory!!!
