Brandon here, I have decided to start posting modeling and painting projects I am working on. Some of them I post may be older projects to start, but my goal is to continue to start and finish new projects. So for starters, today I will be sharing one of my favorite models. I managed to take pictures in the process on this one so I have all of the steps documented. I will do my best to keep up with this level of detail, I tend to get carried away when I am working on exciting new things and forget to take pictures at each step.
So, a little background on this project. I had started playing trolls as my second faction and read the rules for Borka, Keg Slayer and some of his fiction. I fell in love immediately. I went to buy his model paid for it and never put a second thought into until I opened him to work on him. Since he was on the cover of the troll book I imagined him looking just like he does in the artwork. Holding his two handed mace and charging forward. However when I opened it I discovered that he fell quite short of my expectations.
So at this point I had not done any large scale conversions. I sat and stared at the model for about an hour trying to decide if I should try to make it better, or just throw it together and forever be disappointed. It was at this point when I final felt what it was like to try and go beyond the minimum effort on a model. Before this model I didn’t even use Green stuff. I hope you like it. I put a lot of work into this guy and he is still one of my favorite models.
