28mm Trolls and giant for WFB orcs.

24 Sep

I thought I would showcase some of my models from my Warhammer Fantasy battle Orc army.

First up, the trolls….

Image

The one first in line at the left hand side is my own sculpt, I was short a troll for my unit of eight (you can see the black one at the back is still to be painted) Like I keep saying, I can sculpt big stuff, but really small things still elude me. I don’t think its too bad, I know with some practice I’ll get better and go smaller. Here’s a few more shots of it.

OK, back to the rest of the unit, When I was sorting my unit I wanted to keep down the cost of the models (hence, why I sculpted one) The next ones are from Ramshackle, and for two resin trolls costing just £2.50, they are ideal for budgeting gamers. The unpainted one at the back is also from them.

It seems like the sculptors there have a thing about big monsters having their asses hanging out! Still they are cool models with bags of character (The mushrooms are my own work and don’t come with the figures!) Next in my troll warband is this strange looking troll from RAFM, I like it just because its weird. Again the toadstools are mine, not what come with the model (this one was sourced from Ebay for a couple of pounds.)

Image

Next we have a couple of Reaper Bones polymer plastic recasts from the first range (And don’t remind me about the latest million dollar Bones Kickstarter I missed out on, I would have liked to get my hands on someof the excellent figs in that lot!)

Not bad for a couple of quid each, cheap, and paint up OK too. Lastly I have a plastic GW troll from the skull pass set (The only real GW figure in the unit)

My giant is also from Ramshackle,  a resin model too, Its all one piece, but at just £12, it is great for us cheapskates who really don’t like paying through the nose for GW stuff.

 

As you can see, they really do have a thing about monsters with their butts hanging out, the giant even has its balls on show from the back, much to the dismay of my daughter! Still its a good model and would make a great giant for 15mm as well, doomsday cultist in 15mm for size comp (as do the trolls from them, my son uses one for his warmaster O&G lot)

Big un’s on the warpath!!

    If only I could see the Reaper trolls side by side with the GW troll for a size comparison! I’m thinking of getting these guys but not sure of the size.

      Hi there, thanks for your comment, the reaper bones trolls are ok as fillers for your troll units, and they size up resonably against the GW troll I have in the unit, I do think that some of the other GW trolls are a bit bigger, but if your on a budget you can’t beat the price! (Well as long as you don’t count Ramshackles trolls at £2.50 for two!)

        Thanks for the reply! I do have 8 of the Skull Pass trolls, but I was thinking of Throgg’s army with troll units filling the core of the army, and that’s why cheap options are needed, I was just worried that the Bones trolls would be too small, and hence I’d maybe need to get one to test it out (but ordering one such troll might be too expensive postage wise to Finland…)

        Are they easy to cut, in case I decided to cut them in half and bulk them up with green stuff? Should be able to get the pot belly and a few extra MMs that way.

        Also, I believe the Reaper Bones kickstarter range might be coming on sale soon (maybe even in March), and that includes a new troll (a new sculpt even) plus some hounds (I need cheap warhounds too).

        I got a size comparison shot done for you, as you can see, they aren’t a bad match. They are ideal posed for adding a weapon if you like, and you can chop them up for conversions I’m told (I haven’t tried this though) Hope that helps! Will

        Oh yes, that helps immensely! It tells me that they are perfectly acceptable, and especially if I cut up to add a few MM. This means I can safely proceed with my plan without needing to order one for a test copy. Thanks again! I have to say that the Ramshackle trolls are not quite my style though, but that’s ok.
