This custom was born out of my desire to repaint a 12" Trollhunters Bular figure to see if I could make him fit in with my Mythic Legions display. At first, I imagined him as an ice troll, but with the 4H doing an actual ice troll on their Soul Spiller line, I decided to head in a different direction with this character, eventually deciding on a "highland troll" race that i created as part of this custom.
This figure's started with 12" Trollhunters Bular. The figure is huge, even bigger than Mythic Legions' trolls, and the sculpt is really nice, but the paints were a bit cartoony for my liking. I gave this figure a complete head to toe repaint, adding washes to the "leather" parts to make them look more realistic and a wash to his body to change that color a bit. I repainted the armor at his waist and the horns on his head to give them more of a bone-like look. I also added paint to his eyes, swords, belt skulls, and shealths to really bring out all the details on this toy.
For accessories, I wrapped a blue cloth around his chest and draped it over his shoulder like a cape as part of his "highland" look. I also added some fur at his loin under this belt armor. Wanting to add some actual Mythic pieces to the custom, my final touch was to add some broken helms and shields to the character as reminders of past battles that this mighty troll has fought.
