Winter is coming… or being the beginning of February you’d think it might be going. But not for these fellas from the huge talent of Mark Copplestone. He’s stuffed about as much character and coolness (pun intended) into these trolls as you can at this scale.
These are my efforts. Check the Copplestone site for paint-ups by Kevin Dallimore to see how to do it properly. (I hasten to add I thought about an alternative colour scheme but decided that the blue and white – also used by KD – offered the best frosty-contrasting-colours.)
The 2 larger trolls don’t seem to be on the site at the moment. I guess they are OOP at the moment. As Andy Miller on the Frostgrave Facebook page kindly pointed out – I’m an idiot – these are from Copplestone’s 28mm range “High Adventure”, BC9 Yetis.
By the by, on the bases I didn’t want 100% snow so that the base ground colour would tie-in with other bases and terrain. So I did patches of white and built them up a bit with paint and glue. I thought the white PVA drying in a ‘puddle’ would be enough but there wasn’t enough sheen to work so a little gloss varnish was added. Me likes.
