Grenadier Troll and Reaper Hawk

Here is the classic monster promised in my last post: Grenadier's Troll from the Denizens of the Swamp box set.  I love the gnarly, thin, and long-nosed trolls from D&D's past and I had a good time painting this guy.  The limited palette meant that it painted up pretty quickly too despite the fact that I am an incredibly slow painter.  This is the third mini I've painted from the Swamp set and it may be a while before I get to them, but eventually I'll paint the rest.  

I also recently painted the hawk from Reaper's Animal Companions I pack.  One of the players in the D&D game I'm running has a hawk "animal minion" and this was for him.  It's fairly small.  To give a sense of scale: the base is 20mm. 

More vintage lead and other random minis to come...

  1. Hah, I bet I'm a slower painter than you!... ok maybe that's not a competition to have. Anyway, that is a classic old school Grenadier figure. Maybe not too dynamic or as crisp as newer things but a great concept and perfect for D&D etc. Your mucky swamp base suits him perfectly too, I really like it.

    The hawk is great, really natural-looking colours. I love their animal figures.
