Trolls from Heresy and Reaper (and a cultist)

I really had to paint some ordinary minis to be able to survive another large batch of Conan-figures. A quick rummage in the plastics mountain and I had two suitable and rather big figures.
The Dungeon Troll is sculpted by Andy Foster of Heresy Miniatures and is a fantastic mini. My absolute favourite of the two.
He (yes, it is a ‘he’ – look under the loincloth…) is a 3-part model that needed no cleaning as I couldn’t find any mould-lines! More than unusual in a model this size. I used some green stuff in the gaps between arms and body, but that was it.
A fearsome opponent if you're 28mm tall.
Take advantage of the weak £ and pop over to Andy’s store and get yourself one (or any other mini, for that matter).
 This Troll, sculpted by Jason Wiebe, comes from Reaper and their Bones range (you can also get it in metal for four times the price).
It’s a decent sculpt that needed just a little cleaning of mould-lines, but a bit… cartoony. Not really in my taste, but it was easy to paint and could probably smash an adventurer or two.
Finally a cultist from Reaper Bones, you can never have enough cultists… A fast paintjob to have him ready for action.

  1. I have the very same troll figure and it is a favourite. I must start my dragon soon. Great painting as always.

    1. Ah, the praise vs effort on these are getting very good :D
      They were really easy to do - skin one colour, scales another, a wash and you're done (+ claws, mouth and eyes)
      Easy peasy!

  3. I like the Trolls they are smashing, I know what you mean about cartoony, but that's Trolls for you. They're nicely animated :-)

    1. Well, I would be really scared if I met the Heresy-troll.
      If I met the Reaper-troll I would probably laugh (short, before I died horribly)
