Party Hard: Trollblood Family Reunion

The great Trollblood commission is complete! (for now at least). A fairly large commission model wise, the bulk of this is for the Kegslayer Family Reunion list. I will not that I did not assemble the models, albeit a few conversions and fixes.
-Borkha and Keg Carrier

-Dire Troll Mauler
-Dire Troll Bomber
-Storm Troll
-Pyre Troll

-Boomhowler and Co (10)
-Trollkin Champions (11) (Two Min, 1 Max)
-Krielstone Bearer and Stone Scribes (6)

-Trollkin Champion Heroes (2)
-Skadi Bonehammer
-Stone Scribe Elder
-Stone Scribe Chronicler 
-Trollkin Runebearer
-Gatorman Witchdoctor

The client wanted his trolls green. I wasn't too keen on it initially but I found a good color scheme and it finally warmed up to me. 

One of my favorite sculpts, Borkha Kegslayer and his little keg carrier.  The commision was to be tabletop quality (as seen later with other models) but I gave these guys a little extra love.

I also did Calandra, though it is for another list.

Next, the Dire Troll Mauler (the old metal sculpt).

The Dire Troll Bomber is one of my favorites from this commission. A last minute experimentation after some discussion about a future Mountain King project, I decided to experiment with some water effects to have some spewing beer from one of the kegs.

The Pyre Troll and Storm Troll.

Here's where it really became a grind: The units. Boomhowler and Co, a good deal of Trollkin Champs, and Stone Scribes

And a good number of solos. Skadi and Janissa were also sculpts I had always liked, so they too got some extra love above the designated quality.
