This is my latest project – the dark elf witch Ismara riding her undead troll Gark. The miniature is sculpted by Kevin White and sold by Hasslefree Miniatures where she goes by the name Deth. The mini was quite nice to paint – the witch is a bit small and the details minute, but not too much so, whereas the troll was a fairly simple job. However I kept wondering what an undead troll would look like – what is the colour of rotten troll flesh? The model required quite a lot of green stuff to assemble and took some time to prepare. Even so I overlooked a massive mold on the one side of the troll; a stupid mistake I discovered too late.
I added what is supposed to look like the face of a china doll to the base in order to give the miniature a bit of chaotic weirdness. I’m quite pleased with the result and although Gark the Troll looks rather cartoony, the miniature has a really cool 70’s sword & sorcery-vibe i like very much.
Ismara is currently roaming the Chaos Wastes and will be one of the stars in a scenario I’ll be playing with Claus and Anders next month.
Well, what do you think?
