I painted these guys as part of the Journeyman League at Gamers Sanctuary. This is a complete 35pt army, plus an extra light warbeast that I had to take during most of the league. My actual army will be this one minus the second Impaler. Painting these guys in the span of ~5 weeks has me super stoked, as I'm generally a super slow painter. But I think I've gotten to a great balance of speed and quality with these guys. Props to PaintVagrant, dudes on SomethingAwful, and of course the local nerd crew for suggestions and support.
The list, for anyone who cares, is:
Army Name: pMadrak Champ Brick
35+6 points, 18 models
Madrak Ironhide, Thornwood Chieftain +6 points
* Dire Troll Mauler 9 points
* Troll Axer 6 points
* Troll Impaler 5 points
Fell Caller Hero 3 points
6 Krielstone Bearer & Stone Scribes 4 points
* Stone Scribe Elder 1 point
Trollkin Champion Hero 3 points
5 Trollkin Champions 10 points
It's a low model count army, but Trolls are tough to hurt and tougher to kill, especially with all the synergistic buffs they have. Fun to paint and fun to play. I am definitely a Trollblood fan now.
That being said, now that these guys are done, I'm jumping back to my Salamanders for a bit. Up first- the Forgeworld exclusive boarding marine and one of my two different Vulkan models I have sitting around. Looking forward to them!
