Undead Troll for Runequest RPG

In a recent Runequest gaming session, our band of Orlanthi outlaws (one barbarian, a Vingan and a Duck) encountered dozens of skeletons sat motionless, blocking our path. We rode hard through them and of course they got up and came at us. DM Graeme cheerfully plonked a load of skeleton figures on the table and we were soon in a proper scrap.

One of the miniatures was a superb-looking Troll Skeleton. This ex-Uz was produced by Mad Knight Castings (who have sadly now stopped trading) and I was so impressed with it I thought it was deserving of being painted, offered my services for free and now here’s the finished miniature:

This was a nice, simple miniature to paint. Vallejo Dark Sand base coat, Army Painter Soft Tone ink wash, then highlights in the Dark Sand, Army Painter skeleton Bone, with a final highlight of Skeleton Bone and white. The shaft of the mace was Vallejo US Army Drab and the head Army Painter bronze mixed with brown to dull it down a bit. Army Painter Soft Tone wash and then a wash of turquoise for a verdigris effect. And best of all Graeme seems very pleased with it. so a job well done 🙂
