Flintloque/Silver Bayonet cross over - part twenty one

A Troll for The Silver Bayonet

This is a Lord of the Rings Troll - actually a LOTR key ring model that was bought many years ago and had been based and undercoated on two separate occasions prior to this incarnation. The model is mounted on to a 50mm metal washer with the groundwork built up from cork and DAS.

I had seen that others have used GW LOTR Troll models for The Silver Bayonet Troll and I knew that I had this model in my 'spares box'. I undercoated the model in gloss varnish and then black acrylic paint before building up the skin colour by speckling with an old brush.

The model stands over 75mm tall and dwarves this Flintloque RifleOrc model.

It has been my intention all through this project to try and use models that I have stored away and un-loved in my 'spares box' or pick up second-hand figures from Worcester Wargames, rather than purchase 'special' sculpts new, this is a perfect example of re-using figures that would otherwise have been left un-finished.

Love that stippled skin texture- really well done.
