They were sold as  orcs..(I think) when I bought them over 15 years ago. What make they are, I´ve no idea but they are just the right size to be used as 1/72nd scale Trolls.
I only found the 4 of them in my collection of old metal bods, pity as I would like a couple more.
The boss and his right hand man  troll
Bip and snot..
A bit chunkier than their Orc mates but then a troll would be
I like thier faces...
Hello to Thomas from Project Mollwitz blog. A project to recreate  the Battle of Mollwitz  April 1741 between Austria and Prussia
He also has another two blogs, at one of which, Schmock, he is running a "giveaway"
And welcome to Alan (Tangfastico ) He´s just started out in the blogging world...with his blog Model Madness.


  1. Black Orcs, some of them is...


    1. !!!! Blimey Simon, that was quick. As I said I bought these 15 (at least) years ago and from a dingy toy / Model shop in london. They look like the figs on your link for sure.

    2. Hi Paul, I do still have a bunch of them, somewhere. The Chronicle Kobolds, from the same range, are really nice, I have 60 or so of them!

      Cheers Simon

    3. I´ve just looked about..yup..(and at TMP TBeyer told me they are Nick lund Chronicle Orcs...I also have seen he made the orc riders..which I also have but they I bought in the early 8o´s..and possibly at the same time I bought the "trolls"..which means I have to re-assess the "over 15 years ago" and it would be 30 years ago..Doesn´t time fly!?

  2. Wonderful, tough looking fellows! I've never seen these before. How cool is it that after 15 years of resting, you've brought these fellows to life. :-)

  3. Looking extremely good! Excellent paintjob and very releastic skin tone!

  4. I think I had some of them and the Kobolds were great I agree


  5. great work paul. but I don't get how these will work in khandibah... nah I am joking, great trolls for you medievals, still in Khandibah would be a laugh. nice work

  6. They are a cute bunch of maligned fellas. Great job.

  7. Nice way to give these guys new life after 15 years.

  8. Love these Paul, especially the skin colour; wonderful stuff.
