Asgard Fantasy Monsters FM66 Large Troll with club

A combination of holidays, work and ferrying kids to see universities has meant that I haven't had time to post recently. That doesn't mean I haven't had time to paint though. Next up from the Lead Mountain was this chappie from Asgard. My guess is that he was sculpted by the same person who did the Silent Shambler, as there are definite similarities between the two figures, and this probably influenced the paint job.
The actual figure is one of the better Asgard efforts - quite detailed, no flash marking - although it does suffer from a common issue of Asgard minis, in that the haft of the club is very thin, and prone to snapping. It is fairly rare to find this figure in one piece. The actual figure was pretty easy to paint, just muted colours, then Army Painter Soft tone to bring out the detail, then highlighting. The base is just flock. I like this figure - as a generic, brooding, bad tempered troll (presumably set to guard treasure) I can see this getting a lot of table top time. Not bad for a figure that is nearly 40 years old!
