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!

Getting the Ball Rolling

Well hello!

Jen very kindly has let me contribute to this wonderful cause with my Pink Trolls.

So first, a little history:

First of all, me. My real name is Peter Buxton, I live in the Realm of Wales in the United Kingdom, not far from the historical town of Chester. I have been playing games since I was 11 and am a Press Ganger for Privateer as well as having a very unhealthy obsession with painting and collecting all types of toy soilders.

Last Year at the end of October 08, Cerberus, the EU distributor for Privateer Press, put on a UK Breast Cancer Brawl in Manchester at Game Con.

I wanted in. Big Time. I have lost a fair few members of my family to the big C and if I am going to support a charity than this would be it!

The event itself was  fully painted over 2 days event and was great fun to help run and be a part of.  Loads of prizes were given in support of the players who in turn gave generously to the cause (I believe we raised over £400)

We, as Press Gangers, were tasked by Mike W (EU Press Gang Quartermaster) with showing our support and painting up a box set. I had a spare Trollblood battlebox lying around (along with a sizeable bare metal Trollblood army) that I had been collecting since Hordes came out (always something else to paint!) and I was trying to come up with a colour other than blue, and along came the excuse! So was born Madrak and his Pink Trolls:

So, after completing my first models and getting some feedback from my gaming group (which ranged from “wow” to “dude, that is one big pink troll!” the decision was made to carry on with the pink and complete a whole pink faction.

So far we have Dire Troll one:

And his Extreme brother:

Currently on the painting table is a unit of Krielstone Bearers with UA and a Fell Caller, which should be finished soon.
