PostSubject: Zvezda - Alternative trolls   Thu 16 Feb 2012 - 5:37

Does anyone have any experience with models from Russian company Zvezda? I've been looking for a Troll because I'm not a fan of the GW trolls. The Zvezda troll looks rather good, but before I throw my hard-earned wyrdstones at it, I'd like to know if the models are good quality or not?

opinions? other alternatives? please help me out, Da Thikskullz need to hire a troll fast if they want any chance at beating my friends beastmen....

I've got some of their 1/100 WW2 vehicles and they are very good. Great detailing and they assemble beautifully. I haven't got the troll model but it looks good.

I had the elves of their 28mm range.
They were ok. Nothing special but they were at a low price. I used them formy first warband (Reiklanders). Smile

But i thought, they had closed their 28mm range.

that is a good looking troll, not too different from the GW.
The best trolls are of course the ones in the norwegian movie Troll Hunter Smile

I agree with Alex; that is one cool flick...the Ettin at the end was the best. thumbsup

That is a cool one. The Moor Troll is another favorite of mine...he looks like the sketches from the early AD&D Monster Manual:

Well, it's off to the modelshop tomorrow, to see if they can still get their hands om Zvezda 28mm. If not, then it'll probably be one of Reaper's.
