Alternative Armies Very Nasty Things VNT09 War Troll

All this good weather has meant that I have been spending most of my time watering plants and hardly any time painting. I did get round to this chappie though. Now, I like Alternative Army sculpts - I see them as the spiritual heirs to Citadel, as I think they get the mix of oddball humour and unpleasantness just right. This sculpt is a great example - I mean, it is genuinely unpleasant, but it brings a smirk to my face at the thought of unleashing it on unsuspected adventurers. As with all AA sculpts, it was a pleasure to paint - a dark gray base coat, then a blue wash, then dry brushing and picking out the detail. The red really worked well, I thought. Simples! I can see this one getting a LOT of table top time.


  1. It's always a pleasure seeing a nicely done figure I've never seen painted before. I agree with your summary and like what you've done with him. Nice ghoulish skin with gross red warts/pustules/whatever-they-are.

    1. Thank you for the kind comments :) I do like the Alternate Army sculpts, and hope to post some more in the near future.
