Kallaguk, King of the Trolls from Reaper

Another one of my Reaper Bones minis, this time “Kallaguk, King of the Trolls” sculpted by Jason Wiebe. There is also a metal version of this guy.
In my world he is a swamp monster and painted accordingly.
Paints used:
Skin – Vallejo 886 Green Grey, washed with Army Painter Strong Tone ink and finally drybrushed with 971 Green Grey (same name but different colours). Heavier drybrush on belly, palms and under foot.
Scales and plates - 897 US Dark Green, Strong Tone ink and drybrushed with 922 USA Uniform
Fins” – 886 Green Grey with Strong Tone ink, 988 Khaki painted between the fin-rays and finally drybrushed with 971 Green Grey
Hair – 914 Green Ochre and Strong Tone ink
Teeth, claws and spikes – Bone White with Strong Tone ink
Mouth – 944 Old Rose, Strong Tone ink and tongue drybrushed with 835 Salmon Rose
Eyes – Citadel Foundation Mechrite Red, pupils drawn with a Staedtler Pigment Liner 0.05 pen (such an excellent tool for all those small details!)
Club – 843 Cork Brown and Strong Tone ink
Rope – Humbrol 168 Hemp and Strong Tone

I hope to use this guy in my D&D campaign, in Open Combat and/or Song of Blades & Heroes fantasy skirmish games and in a Pulp Alley game. Very useful model and I quite like him.
And here he is, chasing our favourite victim


  1. Nice work on the drybrushing! He doesn't look like a big fan of diplomacy :0)

    1. He who got the biggest club is the best diplomat...

  2. Thats an awesome paintjob! Certainly a big fella!

  3. Thanks!
    The big 'minis' were the primary reason I pledged for the Reaper Bones II kickstarter. They are really nice, and more are waiting for paint.
