    Bunch of trolls, in a pack. What more could you want?!

    The pack is supposed to contain Chaos Trolls and Frost Trolls which represent two troll tribes/empires I've designed myself. Arguably, the Frost Trolls look a lot like a breed between Island Trolls (Darkspear Tribe) and Ice Trolls, but their nature is somewhat different. They are a organized and refined union. They represent dignity, strength in unity and peace. While the Chaos Trolls are greatly inspired by Chaos Orcs (Fel Orc), they are also race of their own. They are divided in aggressive and rough cults, worshipping various demons. They represent scorn, survival of the fittest and warfare.

    I might throw in some Amani Empire and Darkspear Tribe Trolls here as well, and I might even do Ice Trolls and Dark Trolls if there's enough lore to base them on. Feel free to suggest.

    Feel free to discuss what kind of units should come and ideas to how they should look. I'm not going to post the full list of already planned units, just to keep a few surprises in hand.

    The Venomaxe is awsome!

    Suggestions:
    Change the Chaos Trolls' fur loincloth with a black and yellow cloth one
    Change the Frost Trolls' colour of loincloth to gray

    Thanks!

    I will be changing the loincloth for pretty much every new texture/unit, so the generic won't matter for that part. Thanks for the suggestion anyway, though, and you'll notice that the Venomaxe has grey cloth. ;)

    I will be making for all the troll models, don't worry, I've just focused one model so far to be able to produce a few more skins fast without having to figure out the wrapping again for each and every one.

    Thanks!

    Subscribing to see more. :)

    Wow, the Legionnaire looks really nice; waiting for the Necromancer now. Will there also be some sort of a Frost Mage or something for the Frost Trolls to 'counter' the necromancer?

    Yes, I will skin all the troll models available eventually.

    There will be a mage-class Frost Troll, in fact several.

    Khaled, I do read your suggestions and I appreciate them. Some of them might be applied to future skins.

    I won't add specifically coloured stripes to the Gladiator's hair because it's team-coloured and wouldn't blend well with all the possible team-colours. The neck-wrap is a bitch, so I don't think I'll bother with the chains around his neck, but it's a nice idea.


    Also, finished the Necromancer, enjoy!

    The necromancer looks sweet, but I think it would look better if it was a blindfold. It would be more unique.

    I am the person with the most knowledge of trolls and I'm sorry to inform you that chaos trolls are red, not orange. The blue ones look fine, though.

    Pardon me for being direct, but I invented Chaos Trolls and I decide what skin-tone they have. ;)

    dude i love your troll skins. i already used one in my map planet of the orcs. keep up the good work. you should make other models look troll like. its been done with illidan and thrall, im sure theres others you can make look as pleasing to the eye as these
