Down the Hill came ...

... a Troll - and more precise a Foundry Hill Troll Champion.

Cause I've been doing a bit of painting, again. And this time its actually a rather large piece. Started working on him 6 to 8 weeks ago, and worked on him on and off - but finished in time for entering him at the painting challenge (maleudfordringen) @ - which was all about doing skin - and must admit, there is a lot of skin on this one.

Wargames Foundry: BSTR003 Hill Troll Champion

This guy here is 1 out of 5 Hill Trolls John Pickford has done for Wargames Foundry. This guy he is "the Champion" - but in the range you'd also find a rock throwing one, one throwing a goblin Paraglider, a grabbing troll - and one armed with a huge axe. All made in this great retro fantasy style.

Fun piece doing - but time consuming he was - think i have had 30+ colours on the palette to do him :)

Should probably have take a comparison picture to really show his size - but he is on a 50x50mm base - and 14-15cm tall - will look enormous on the battlefield - but should scare most enemies away, don't you think.

Collecting John Pickford: TFF Halfling Chef

Once again I have been gifted with one of these "event-exclusive" pieces John is rather well-known for.

This one is another piece for the people at Last year, "Axiom" did a little fantasy-football for the participants in The Legasy Team. This year, he went for something much bigger :)

The Legacy Team is a painting event that have been running for more than 10 years, now. Each participant paints up a race specific miniature and then a lottery is held to draw a winner who gets the team. The race for the 2013 Team was "Halflings" - so what better excuse could he get for having John doing him a Halfling Chef. And didn't stop there - no, the little Chef comes with camp fire and a ball on a roasting stick, too :)

Here is the little master piece:

TFF Halfling Chef

Magnificent, don't you think?

Cast in resin. Limited to 50 casts. Mainly sold to the people taking part in "The 2013 Legacy Team" and other members of

Really like him, and he will go so well with the Foundry Halflings - and '90 Citadels.
