It's time for some more monster-painting
Here he is with the trusty Sergeant Measureby, who tells us that sans-base, our troll king is about 50mm tall from toes to hump. He seems bigger compared to normal human figures though, being so massive.
So far I've just glued him to a big steel washer, done some zenithal shading/highlights with the airbrush, and slapped on a rough brown wash to show me where the detail is. I haven't decided yet what sort of colour scheme to use; I was originally considering crocodilian colours, but that might be a bit drab. I shall ponder some more before I get started properly.
I've started with some ink glazes and a bit of basic dry-brushing, and it seems to be coming together quite nicely.
Now it's just a question of getting stuck into the detail, especially about the face.
I've started giving him a bit of character, painting in the facial details. That's a mighty big tongue he's got there.
There only thing I'm not too fond of with these plastic Bones miniatures is the mould lines. They're a lot harder and more troublesome to get rid of than they are on metal figures. Still, in my view the benefits of the material far outweigh its disadvantages.
