Tonite I worked on fixing up my Trolls, so I can paint and play them this coming Tuesday. 3 units of 6, including Throgg. I'm also bringing a Giant, some Warhounds and some other interesting critters.

I have a problem: Reading. In particular, I keep reading the Black Library Horus Heresy novels. I so, so want to make every Traitor Legion...

I was thinking that myself fluffy. I know the feeling Dez, whenever I read a ' Army of the Empire' book I have a VERY strong urge to make an empire army... :: shudders::

Yeah I have a feeling that I'm going to have lots of fun with this new book. I can't believe I'll have a new Warriors of Chaos book this year too!

More Troll work! This time I busted out of my comfort zone and did some sculpting. I got a bunch of Trolls in a trade a few years ago, and they were missing hands and heads and stuff. So, I used Ogre Bits (some of which I hijacked from Smartah) to complete them. Hopefully it worked!

I did some rough sculpting with my fingers, then I used a Super Sculpty tool with a soft, synthetic tip (like a paint pusher) to try and get some form to it. After the GS dried a bit, I hit it with liquid Greenstuff to hide my fingerprint and other imperfections. They still aren't great, but with some paint and being hid in units I think they will be passable. Hopefully people will just think they have broken noses for acting stupid around Throgg...

And now a group shot of all my trolls, hanging out and waiting for Throgg to lead them into battle on Tuesday:

I'm hoping to bust out the airbrush tomorrow night, and get a really good amount of painting done on them. It would be cool if I could get it all painted by Tuesday!

That's a dang good troll, if I say so myself. Um.. Refresh my memory though, whose Throgg?

Thanks, it's actually 3 different Trolls. I had to crop the pics ;) Throgg is basically the most BA Troll in the North, and can make Trolls a core choice in a Warriors of Chaos army. It's the army I've always wanted to build, separate from my normal Warriors of Chaos (heavy on the Warriors!) army. There aren't a lot of models to it, and I might be crazy and productive enough to paint it this weekend!

Started airbrushing Trolls, and my brush keeps getting clogged up so I think I'm done for tonite. I'm tired ;). Time for some Skyrim and bed, maybe a few coats of paint on this Giant...

Those trolls looks great dude! Nice sculpting...

If your airbrush is clogging it is usually 2 reasons...
Your not thinning your paint enough.
or...
Your not letting the air clean off the tip when shooting. Don't stop the air and paint at the same time. Stop the paint first allowing the air to blast any leftover paint out of the nozzle.
