Middle Earth Strategy Battle Game - Moria Cave Troll - TO DONE!

Afternoon #WarHamFam and #WarhammerCommunity I've been #PaintingWarhammer on my #MESBG Moria Troll and he is complete and I'm pretty chuffed.

 He is still bright and vibrant, moreso than MESBG usually exhibits I think, but I really like it.

I still managed to hold onto some of the Bahama Blue, the turquoise and Heavy Red wash. 

The brighter turquoise helps define the many scales on its back with the red loin cloth helping to tie in with the red in his skin. 

Although there's no legitimate connection between the two I think it helps with the palette.

In some respects it was really easy and simple to do, in fact some of the highlights on the tummy are the first ones I applied, it's just shading and glazes that subsequently added all the tones to it.

I think it just adds a lot of variety to its flesh, making it more interesting.

Perhaps, it could have been executed with more precision and blending but I just think it works even at this economic level of detail.

I couldn't quite settle on the Dirty Down Rust for the hammer, so it had some Rust Wash and weathering powders to make it more orange, which I'm much happier with.

Close-up of his back scales -lessons learned fromt he Blood Bowl Troll, thank you!

And the scales on his thigh came out OK too, with splashes of blue and red in places to give the illusion of mottled tones of skin - slap-dash, not slap-chop 😉

And with that a GREAT Big RUSTY Stamp of Approval to go with his Great Big RUSTY hammer and chain.


  1. Nice man .. I'm really liking the color blue you went with and the purple blends on the chest are nice as well. Very cool!
