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!

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.

Gday: The Bear Necessities

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…

Brun Cragback

Brun Cragback

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?

Lug

Lug

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!

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!!!

Gday: Tubthumpers

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.
