Stonehaven Troll: Finished!

Wouldn't you know it, I finished a  project! I needed something small and fun to break up the drudgery that painting my Space Wolves became. This guy was just the ticket. A one-shot figure with some interesting details and definitely no power armor.

I named him Zab.

I probably spent a good 5-6 hours painting him, all told. I did the bulk of the work a few weeks ago and then finished him up over the last week in short painting sessions. I'm most happy with how his skin turned out, I've never really painted green skin before, so it was an interesting challenge.

You can see on the armor that it's a bit rusty- an effect archived using Model Mate's Rust Effect. This was my first go with it, but let me tell you what, it is some mighty wonderful stuff. But I'll save that for a later post just on it.

He's not yet available on the Stonehaven website, but will be sometime in November along with the rest of the Gnomes from their recent Kickstarter campaign. Don't forget- they're currently running a campaign for Elves, and so far they look great. They just introduced a new troll, too :-)

Next on the block are the LOTR Goblins I started back in the beginning of the year. They're 80% finished so I am hoping to whip them out quickly.

  1. Very well done. That is a cool mini. The armor is really nice.
    I look forward to the LOTR Goblins. Are they the ones from the Hobbit box set?

  2. No, they're Moria Goblins. Casey did a whole bunch of the ones from the Hobbit set, though.

  3. I think I like the Moria goblins best... I don't like the deformed and diseased look of the Goblintown goblins... They just seem... out of place...
    The Moria goblins are tiny though...
