Creating Gundabad Trolls

 I love the look of the grim helmeted trolls from the Hobbit but didn't want to pay Forge World £60 a figure.So I bought 8 trolls for £10 off ebay ( Dark Alliance 1.72 scale). Together with a bit of green stuff I thought I would give it a go creating my own. I was quite pleased with the results. Once painted they should look just the ticket. Saved myself around £240, can't be bad.

 These dark Alliance trolls are 1.72 scale and are like 20mm. They actually match the size of the smaller trolls at the end of the  hobbit movie that I'm really pleased about, perfect for my Gundabad army and different from my larger Mordor trolls.
They will be based two to a 60 x 60mm stand, In Dragon Rampant they will have 3 hit points each, so four to a unit.

Excellent idea and conversion.

I think you misspelled Forge World though, should be written as "Forgery World" :P Their prices are crazy....even more so than GW! Which is saying something :)

You wouldn't happen to have a link to the seller of the minis would you?

They look great, top stuff! Love the GS masks you made, really cool :)

Go to eBay and type in Dark Alliance trolls, loads should come up. It's what I did and it worked a treat.

I've come to this a little late, but love the look you are going for with the Trolls.
