Slag Troll Complete

Wrapping up my first 15 points is my slag troll.  I decided to do him in the more traditional blue, but use the rust effects on the skin around the metal slags.

Not much to say other than I'm happy with him.  Some of the muscle tone turned out excellent, and I'm really happy with the rust effect and how that helped pull the model together well.

I did have a bit of an issue during the dullcoating in that the model got hit with sprinklers while drying.  I was freaking out when I first saw him with a white filmy coat!  It turned out another hit of dullcoate took care of the bulk of the issues, plus some black paint on the base.  The 'grass' is a bit darker because of it all but overall the model is no worse for wear thankfully.

I'm now moving on to the units.  I've decided to tackle the min Fennbaldes unit next.  I've just spend 5 hours on these guys and I'm not even done with basecoats.  Granted what's left is basically metal... but this is clearly going to take a ton more time than the single models action of the first 15 points.
