• Troll Axer

    This is a really cool model.  He’s got a huge mouth, awesome set of frills and packs his own lunch.  The Axer didn’t have hardly any mold line issues.  I wonder what the new plastic ones will be like. I plan on doing several colors within my army.  Not every troll will be the same shade blue.  As a matter of fact, I’ve always wondered why Privateer settled on trolls with pretty much a singular skin color.  In some of their artwork, I’ve seen trolls with more earthy colors, but for the most part blue reigns supreme. This Axer sports

  • Skaldi Bonehammer

    Now here’s a troll that wants to party! Skaldi Bonehammer hails from the north, so I game him the traditional blue troll skin.  I gave him extremely light highlights, which show up almost white under the camera’s flash.  The model reminds me of this guy who I used to work with, who claimed he climbed a six foot fence while carrying a keg.

  • Blitzer

    Behold, a finished Blitzer! Out of all the older, metal trolls, I think I like this one the best. I did find out later that he should have some ammo boxes on his back. Oh well.

  • Borka Kegslayer

    My first Trollblood Warlock, Borka Kegslayer will lead my army to victory. Why run Borka? Besides the fact that he’s a drunken troll bent on brawling or boinking? Well, he has the ability to bring the pain on his own, and he makes a deadly army deadlier. On his own, he can bash most casters to a pulp. Imagine he’s found himself within 11″ of Stryker, and Stryker’s already burnt his feat, and has no focus left. Borka’s friend tops him off, giving the Kegslayer a whopping 7 fury. Borka casts mosh pit for 3, and his weapons have knockdown.

  • Cryx Pump House

    I was supposed to do terrain for the Crossroads of Courage, but got distracted by a plastic blister after picking up an X-Wing model last weekend. I figured it would make a good bunker or shed, and finally landed on the pump house idea. My thoughts are that the building will be an obstruction, and the green bile pool will serve as an acid pool. No swimming unless you’re wearing your acid proof wet suit.

  • Mine Entrance

    Inspired by the Crossroads of Courage Narrative League, I took a couple hours to throw together a piece of scatter terrain for the campaign. I started with quarter inch plywood for the base. On large pieces, I do not recommend the ply. It warps. For smaller models, the warping doesn’t seem to be a problem. Time will tell. I purchased a tunnel entrance from the model railroading section at our local Hobbytown USA. N scale. It was on sale for less than 10 bucks. I had a pile of cut up foam left over from an earlier project. I positioned

  • Rumble Tiles

      Tiles for a Rumble Format Game I feel like one of the locations we play weekly doesn’t have enough terrain.  So I designed some tiles that I will hopefully have done before we start the new “Courage” campaign.  They’re 10″ tiles, which will be arranged to form the 30″ play area for rumble games.  The great thing is that if I want to adapt them to a 48″ table, I only have to create some 10″x8″ tiles that can be fit on the end, along with a 8″x8″ corner.  All the rivers meet in the center of each tile,

  • Grenadier

    I didn’t spend all day on a Warjack!  Seriously, this guy was painted almost exactly the same way as the trenchers, with the added bonus of being much larger.  I’m not too concerned about getting this Grenadier beyond table-top level.  I’m pretty sure he’ll just blend in with the troops. Painting something with a style guide already in place made this go so much quicker.

  • Long Gunner Infantry Officer & Standard

    I tried to mimic the way I painted the first group of Long Gunner Infantry, but didn’t quite nail it.  These guys have been sitting on my shelf, since I hadn’t really found a place for them in my Mk2 lists.  Maybe next month, they’ll see some play.  Hence the rush to paint.

  • Blighted Nyss Swordsmen

    Blighted Nyss Swordsmen & Unit Attachment After finishing this unit, I will almost be finished with my daughter’s Legion of Everblight models. I hate painting units. So I originally attempted to spend as little time as possible on these guys, but ended up wasting a whole day watching the adventures of “The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmitt” on Netflix and painting this unit. I followed the same pattern as Saeryn and Rhyas and gave their skin a nice undercoat of white. Verdigris glaze atop the white added an unearthly skin color. Turns out, Verdigris refers to the color that copper turns when
