This Troll Bouncer was the last Hordes model I purchased before they announced MkII. As a result, I only ever assembled him, then let him sit ’til the rules got sorted out and made compatible with Warmachine MkII.
He was incredibly easy to paint – he’s almost completely covered in plate mail – which means I can drybrush the entire model in metallics. The order of painting is below:
1 – drybrush a base of GW Tin Bitz (rusty/dark metallic)
2 – drybrush a base coat of PP Bronze
3 – drybrush highlights of PP Brass
4 – paint the morningstar and select armour with Boltgun Metal
5 – paint shield Vallejo German Grey (wash with GW Badab Black)
6 – wash entire model with GW Devlan Mud
7 – paint blue skin (wash with GW Asurman Blue and Badab Black mix)
8 – detail/highlight model’s gear
9 – scratch up the shield with GW Chainmail
10 – done!
Sheesh, it took longer to type this than paint the model.
