To paint a troll

I you follow the blog, you could see that I had started to paint a troll by Dark Alliance. It is a very big figure compared to the human sized 1/72 minis - you can see a good comparison on 1/72 Multiverse.

This is what I could achieve:

The troll fighting three greatswords  (Redbox landsknechts)



And this is how I did it:

After the basic colors (see the first step here: What's on my desk ?), I used several washes to add contrast to the mini (which is meant to be a tabletop quality mini, nothing more).

A green wash for the loin cloth
Dark brown wash everywhere
Black wash added for the armor, red wash for the teeth



When the mini is dry, I add some rust on the armor (brown wash locally applied), then I paint highlights everywhere (only drybrush for the flesh, the scales and the armor).

There you are:




I hope you like it.

  3. "Tabletop quality mini"?! It's much, much better than that, thanks to your painting expertise. And even unpainted, it's a LOT better than the minis that were available 30 years ago!

    Best regards,

  4. There certainly is a great surge of this kind of fantasy stuff on the market place now. Although never having painted anything like them I admire the large look of the things.As for your painting,it is great. BB
