May Day painting challenge – Update #7

ffg_MEC41_75.jpgThe final Enemy miniature in the core box set of Journeys in Middle Earth is also the biggest in the box – the Troll.

Much like the wraiths, this model is inspired directly from one of the cards in the Lord of the Rings: The Card Game. In this instance it is the Ruthless Hill Troll, so I based much of my colour scheme on this artwork.

The main body colour is Coat d’Arms Pale Green, with CdA Mid Grey used for the scaly hide.

Much like the Goblins earlier,I wanted the dramatic shading of an all over wash without darkening the skin colour too much, so I used Army Painter Soft Tone. I really enjoyed painting this figure, and am very pleased with the final result.

With all the Enemy models painted, it is time to turn our attention to the heroes.

    Well done Neil, I too have been trying to crack on and paint some figures. I found some FIW 28mm Indians from a purchase 5 years ago. Should finish them by the end of the week, but starting them is key!
