Here are some photos I’ve taken of my 240ish point Trollblood Army. I bought the majority for then painted by a mate. I based them and added 4 Boomhowlers and a Skinner. I also have Trollkin Sorceror in a blister and will no doubt buy some other models over time.
This months blog is about completing my large procured (from a mate) Trollblood Army by decorating the bases with you’ve probably already guessed, grassy bases. In essence I have 116 models with needed basing and marking, here is an example of the start point and first step…..
The steps are as follows:
1/paint bases with 50:50 mix of pva glue and water
2/dip in builders sharp sand (dried out first)
3/allow to dry
4/paint brown using hobby craft basic acrylic paint (50:50 brown:yellow)
5/allow to dry
6/2 stage drybrush lighter brown then parchment
7/allow to dry
8/add patches of mix/water mix
9/dip in flock mixed to your colour taste
10/allow to dry
11/paint orientation markings on the bases
Here’s the finished product….
Not surprisingly, this task took on industrial production line proportions, here are some photos along the way…..
And finally the finished army, phew….
My first painting for about a month, it is my first Trollblood, a Skinner and very much a Blue Square Trollkin.
I’m going to play Trolls now, I bought a large army of them pre-painted from a colleague, Matt. Thanks Matt. Obviously I couldn’t resist buying another one, so I got the Skinner. Game-wise he’s not supposed to be very good but I like the look of him and versus Hordes is certainly better.
I’m also preparing some Bushido, Temple of Ro-Kan, that I’ve had for a while. Will post later.
The sKinner needs to be varnished and flocked.
Here’s some photos of the Skinner…
