One wet and grumpy troll

I finished working on my Citadel Marsh Troll this week. An absolutely splendid miniature. It was such a pleasure to paint. Obviously the base still needs to be done. I love the idea about a marsh troll and I’m inclined to get Bob Olleys giant marsh troll as well. They would male a fine team.

While choosing the colours I was of course thinking along the lines of earthy, swampy hues. However, I also kept returning to Puddleglum from C. S. Lewis’ The Silver Chair and the way he is portrayed in most illustrated editions of the book.  Here you have one particularly shifty looking version of Puddleglum painted by Rodney Mtthews. Great, right?! It almost has hints of Ian Miller and Tony Hough.
