A Long Overdue Update – More Pink Trolls!

Well, after what looks like a year off from Hordes (I blame Cryx WM Mark II) and a slight distraction in real life my Trolls are back!

First thou, some news. My Mother In Law at the start of Feb was diagnosed with Breast Cancer. 😦 Big shock and that was not the phone call that me or my wife ever wanted to take. Life takes a different route after news like this.

Good news is the operation and subsequent treatment (radiotherapy) is  now over and she is making a good recovery (and now rocks some awesome bandanna choices). It’s been hard supporting her and the family but out of all of us, she has been the strongest one!

Needless to say this time, alongside the release of Hordes Mk II and the incoming new Trollblood book has renewed my love of the big pink ones.

So I cracked out the camera to produce some sub standard finished pics of what I have been up to the past few weeks off and show the Pink Kriel off fully!

In hindsight I should have made a group shot but I don’t think my camera could cope with that much pink…..

Without further ado we have the Pink Kriel so far….

My pride of the collection so far and the most fun I have had painting a miniature!

And his smaller brother (or sister, it’s hard to tell….)

Impalers, and an Axer the basis of any good Troll collection

Grim on the hunt for, err, chicken?

Ahh, and to think he is going to bring all that doom.

Perhaps the most common solo seen in Troll armies?

Quite possibly the cutest PP minis ever?

The cornerstone of many bricks

Magic digging Pygmies? What could be better?

Smoke blowing gobbers, showing their support for the cause!

Hope you enjoy my hard work, I have some Champs, a Pyre Troll and a Stone Scribe Chronicler on my painting table to finish of and then some casters and maybe another beast or two before I start on the slog that is the Kriel Warriors. All that tartan is beginning to scare me….

On a final rather personal note I do have a Calandra who will be painted up in honour of my Mother In Laws success. Any suggestions on how to sugar coat the fact that I have picked a rather substantial character to represent her will be appreciated!

And it continues

As usual I have a bad pick to share. Its what I’ve been up too, after these are done I have:

6 more Bloodgorgers, 10 Raiders + sea witch, a helldiver, the coven, 2 raider captains, a converted skarlock, 2 plastic jack kits, 2 necrotechs and then all the cryx I own will be painted…

Wow thats still a lot to go. On a brighter note, we had our breast cancer brawl sat July 31 and raised at least $400 dollars, with my work matching this its a nice haul.
