Gday: Starting with a Song

grissel

Semi-inspired by Jen’s Bright Pinks, I decided to paint up the Trollbloods for this project. While I didn’t plan too far ahead, I knew I wanted to try a Grim Angus range-focussed list… so why is Grissel the first model I’ve painted?

Well, my FLGS didn’t have Grim in when I first went exploring, but they did have Ms Bloodsong. I didn’t mind the model at all, and I very much enjoy the fluff behind the character, and, well, I was definitely in need of a test model for the scheme.

Rather than painting my Trolls up pink, I decided to actually make them wear pink ribbons – no quitari for me, it’s pink scarves all the way, as well as leathers and dark metal, and of course, post-it note yellow skin, since I just can’t bring myself to follow the studio blue for the Troll skin. If I was the kinda guy to paint studio schemes, my Menites wouldn’t be blue and yellow 😉

… and of course, as per most of my models, she has some red because my son likes red. In her case, it’s a little bit of red on the vambrace gems.

Next on the docket I’ll be seeing how the yellow skin and pink scarves look on an Impaler…

    The yellow skin goes very well with the pink ribbons and the ribbons really fit the cause.

  2. I’m liking it a lot.

    I’m thinking your Pale Pinks could be neighbors to my Bright Pinks. 😉

    Very nice, any thoughts to how you want to base them?

  4. Basing will be simple flock and ballast, same as with my Menites. It’s incomplicated, and I know I can do it without screwing up 😉
