Reaper Miniatures Troll

I am a great fan of Reaper Miniatures and their Customer Service is excellent. The kind folks at Reaper Miniatures sent me a free hard plastic troll with my relatively small purchase. Unfortunately this troll is no longer available from Reaper - but they have about a gazillion others. It was easy to paint and will find itself on the battlefields of Dragon Rampant and In Her Majesty's Name.  I decided it would be a fire troll and did a very quick paint job by priming it with red, painting some body highlights with GW Flaming Orange and then doing the claws and teeth with GW Ratskin Flesh.

The flash of the camera hides the orange highlights - but trust me; they are there.

Troll with plastic Gripping beast 28mm Vikings to give you an idea of the scale. To bad it is no longer available, the face alone would be worth whatever the price was - it exudes character!

  1. Troll looks great. Photography is a challenge all its own in the hobby. Seconding your opinion of Reaper's service. Just ordered and got the WWW, Toto,Tin Man, Scarecrow, Lion and Dorothy. Your games are the inspiration for a couple new companies soon to be on my blog. Go humans!
