New Dire Trolls

Privateer Press posted the new plastic Dire Trolls today. I like the new look of these models because I really disliked the weird hands of the first Dire Troll Mauler. I actually think the new one is an improvement. The Extreme Dire Troll Mauler is still much better.

Between the three models you can make, it doesn't look all that bad. Sure, you suffer from a single chassis, but reducing the cost of the three kits I think is worth it. It'll be interesting to see Rök's character addons.


  1. I like the new plastic kits, by and large. A little work with a drill and some magnets, and you can (generally) get three or four different options for the price of one. I have a couple of metal brawlers and a metal blitzer, so I might actually glue one of these up as a bomber, but I plan on magnetizing at least one of them.

  2. I agree the new kits are pretty cool. Glad to see that PP is starting to get on board with modular kits : )

  3. Incredibly ugly head sculpts for the mauler and the blitzer (which has lost its dynamic pose, btw).

    I intended to play trollbloods, now I might have to turn on Khador if I can't find the classic sculpts.

  4. What's wrong with the heads, specifically?
