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…
