Vicky- Albert’s Mate She-Troll
The female of Trollarius Vulgaris be every bit as wyrd and savage as her dim-witted
mate. With the unpleasant addition of a mother’s protective instinct and a rather
startling predisposition to cunning traps, the She-Troll is a deadly creature.
Starting in the winter months, a She-Troll will make a nest of moss, leaves and other
less savoury substances. After choosing her mate and copulating, together they will
proceed to hunt and kill everything within several miles. Amassing a vast store of
bones. When the childe is born, in addition to milk from its mother’s teat it will crack
open the bones and suck out the marrow. Thus does a troll gain rapid strength and
size, as well as its renowned hunger for human flesh.
-Hatticus Van Clare, Ye Monsters of Blackwood Forest.
To compliment our Giant Forest Troll, we have an amazing new sculpt- Vicky, the
Like Albert, Vicky is a striking and imposing sculpt. With a beetle-brow and a
mouthful of jagged teeth, she leers menacingly across the battlefield.
Vicky is a squat, hulking force of nature. Which is exactly what she has a weapon!
Clutched in her hand is a massive hunk of rock, ready to smash in the head of
anything unlucky enough to cross her path.
This is NOT a “dynamic” model, perched in mid air or balancing on one foot! Nay!
This is a miniature worthy of an Old-School collection. Every detail of the sculpt has
been meticulously overseen to ensure that it is going to be a firm fan favourite and a
welcome addition to the Old School Miniatures Pantheon.
Vicky looks great when paired with Albert and Albert Jr. However, she also works
just as well on her own. In RPGs, she’d make a great boss-monster and a
challenging encounter. Pop her on top of a ravine to hurl rocks at the PC’s and make
them wet their chainmail! Or in a wargame, Vicky can be used perhaps as a shaman
(who knows what she’s doing with that poor fish!) or maybe as a monstrous general.
You can just imagine her bellowing threats and encouragement to an army of savage
orcs or hob-goblins!
Finally, This model is disgusting. I don’t know if it is chipped toenails, the warty flesh
or the belly-button picking- But Vicky will get admiring (or disgusted) glances
wherever she goes.
Although it might be initially intimidating, this model is a joy to paint.
The resin is top quality, so it has all of the old school character but without any of the
dreaded paint chipping of metal minis.
The contrast between the soft, lice ridden fur and the jagged rock gives a lot to play
with when painting this model up. Try to vary the colours between the two to really let
the model really “pop”.
Vicky makes a perfect centre piece. Or, we think she’d work well in a diorama-
lurking under a bridge, rock in hand ready to brain some poor traveller.
Using a simple system of a thin base coat, another layer and then finally a gentle
highlight you can quickly paint this up into a striking addition to your collection.
