Marsh troll

This fellow (Reaper No. 2609 Marsh Troll) was pretty easy to paint up. Since he was a larger figure, I drybrushed most of him, picking out details with the brush. The base I used was a touch large, so I added the lizard (from a Games Workshop lizard swarm pack.) I need to work on painting fish, though, I'm not sure when the next fish will come around. That's probably why I'm not so good at painting them :)


  1. Wow I just found your site and you are a great painter! Keep up the good work!

  2. Thanks, Matt- And don't forget to look through the archives/older posts; there's plenty to see here.

    Feel free to ask any questions.

  3. Great paint job on a great figure. I have the same one in my painting queue... which has been waiting for a while now.

  4. Very nice. What shades of green did you use for the troll skin?

    1. Hmm, been a while, but I think I used mostly olive drab greens. You can take any yellow green, add a hint of grey and get a good troll color.
