… or at least, hitting you at 30 paces with a 10′ length of wood tipped with a dirty great spike and wrapped in pretty pink ribbons…
Ladies and Gentlemen, the Ta-Ta Kriel presents its first light warbeast, a Troll Impaler
This model was actually a lot of fun to paint, with the exception of the bloody ribbons on the spears… but then, they really fit in with the concept I had for the Ta-Ta Kriel, in that they’re not pink themselves but that they use pink ribbons all over the place.
I’m particularly pleased with the barbecued chickens… or turkeys or geese or whatever they are.
I tried to stick to a similar palette to Grissel – yellows for the skin, pale pinks, rich leathers and darker metallics. I needed something else for the straps though, so since pink and grey traditionally go together, it was a fairly easy step. The greys do blend a little into the metals, but I still like the end result.
