Excuse the terrible photos, I apparently managed to overblow the details. Bah.
Horthol adds some mobility to my 750pt Ta-Ta Kriel list, being able to operate independently on a flank as a solo hunter or general harrier.
I was quite pleased with the washes on the metal, making it look like subtly distinct surfaces rather than just a solid series of metallic silver plating.
Troll Warbeasts are some of the most awesome destructive forces in the game… but they can’t roam too far, they need to be constantly monitored by a warlock. So, what do you do when you want an awesomely destructive flanking force? You call in this guy…
Out of respect for his current employers, Brun sports a lovely pink hat brooch thingie, despite wearing the red/bone colour scheme I settled on when I painted Thor, Loki and Ingrid.
And of course, what good’s a minion warlock without a towering hirsute monstrosity?
He may not be wearing pink, but then he’s not strictly a Ta-Ta… and dammit, I like the red on him.
I may not be able to attend my local FLGS’ Breast Cancer Brawl in the end, but Brun and Lug will definitely be accompanying the Ta-Ta Kriel with me to Templecon!
The self-inflicted challenge, when working with yellow skinned trolls, is how to successfully pull off those models that are supposed to be even paler. Prime examples are the albino trollkin warlocks, but there’s also this fellow to consider…
Oh, c’mon, tell me these guys don’t remind you a *little* of the iconic backpack-hose-gun dudes of the 80’s… at least the bellows guy… C’MON!!!
They get knocked down! But they get up again! You’re never gonna keep ’em down!
… Well, as long as they keep making their tough rolls and Hugh is nearby to stand ’em back up.
Ladies and Gentlethugs, the Ta-Ta Kriel Champion Tubthumpers.
Behold the latest member of the Ta-Ta Kriel, Hugh Bragg the Fell Caller.
Grim Angus, my warlock of choice for the Ta-Ta Kriel. I had fun painting him, though I agonized over the assorted browns on the model. It was interesting seeing how many variants I could come up with. I was particularly happy with the light tan leather longcoat in the end.
Neil the Axer joins the Ta-Ta Kriel, though somehow he’s ended up with Vivian’s SPG in his slingbag.
… 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
