Gaspez Arts Troll.
This is the view I’ll have when I get to set up the big dumb lug. He’s a last hurrah to my long suffering pot of Liche Purple which finally gave up on me yesterday. I’m really happy the way the skin turned out, I started with the Citadel foundation purple (hormagaunt or some tyranid name) mixed with Liche Purple and then gradually added Vallejo fluorescent pink and Vallejo Squid Pink. I stuck with the pink combo for the scales and spines.
This is the second of Raffaele Stumpo’s big guys I’ve done and I have to say he was a real pleasure to paint like the Ogre was, and thats not just because it has boobs (troll man-boobs, blech!)! The casting is so smooth and the lines so clean, I was never in any doubt about how to treat the detail. I feel like he has an Italian flavour, to me he looks like a fat and ugly version of those imps you see on Campari or Cinzano posters in cafes sometimes.
Anyway, Eucbowl is a month away and I’ve a Minotaur to go that will see the team finished and ready to bash heads.
