With the release of 8th ed, I have been giving Chaos Trolls a second look. I kind of liked them in 7th, but with the new charge rules, monstrous infantry, and Stomp attacks, these guys have gotten quite a bit better. I would almost say, that at 45 points a troll, they are under-coasted.
Naturally I am looking forward to building some models for these guys. I am not a huge fan of the exsisting Chaos Troll models. They are alright, but look a bit out of date with the current line, and don’t really fit the vibe of my army. What I have determined to do is to use the plastic chaos spawn kit as a base for the trolls. Here is a rough sketch that I created to explore how I would accomplish this…

I like the new River Troll models that GW put out, but I think that these guys would fit the look of my army a bit more.
