Painted Troll Impaler

Here is a Troll Impaler for my Hordes Trollbloods army. Being a light Warbeast, I will admit that he suffers from the same lack of motivation to paint as the Bouncer so I ended up painting them (and an Axer who is still in progress) more-or-less together. As light Warbeasts go, the Impaler is quite expensive but in a few test games I can’t get him to do anything very useful (though I’ll freely note that this is probably due to my lack of skill at the game); he just throws a couple of spears at people from down range until I’m forced to engage with him. Then he pokes uselessly at a few fools and dies quite easily. The Impaler does bring along the Far Strike Animus which is handy for letting ranged Warlocks like Jarl Skuld shoot from further away. On the other hand, the Dire Troll Bomber has the same Animus and has generally been far more amusing to play.

The paint scheme here is largely the same as the Bouncer, being a mix of browns for the clothes and metals for the armour and weapons. The Impaler is meant to have a quiver of spare javelins attached to his back but I couldn’t get it to look quite right and it kept falling off in transport so in the end I just left it.

Like the Bouncer, I dedicate this post to Azazel’s Neglected Models February Challenge; hopefully I’ll sort the Axer out in time too and just share a single photo of all three.
