Good idea for Cave Trolls proxy (LOTR Risk)

Stumbled upon these wonderful conversions on the Warmaster France board.

After translating realised that they were these models from the LOTR Risk board game.

Not a lot to tell really. Removed the plastic bases, removed part of the hammer on some and replaced with a spear. The chain is just cheap necklace chain drench in super glue to hold it in place, and then undercoated black and painted the colours you see. I don't have them any more, I sold my entire BOFA collection about a year ago.

Here's a pic of them with some other BOFA mini's so you can see how they scale.

Lovely - and gorgeous basing too.

Is that the official Smaug model but shaved of his fiery base?

Thanks mate.

Yeah, that is the official Smaug model. I didn't like the look of it banking and sitting on its wing, so I did a little bit of filing, bending and positioning and mounted him flying level instead.

They look really good.

Do you know what size/scale the other figures in the LoTR Risk are? From looking at various eBay photos they look about 10-15mm?

Really nice and well painted figures . I wonder if a certain prolific sculpter may be persuaded to do some similar 10mm cave trolls . It's worth a thought .

He's posted pics of armoured troll concepts so that's a start!
