Troll Forged Alien Larva Brain
Troll Forged Alien with Emperor's Champion and Tyranid Zoanthrope
In my last post I wrote about getting some Daemon parts from Troll Forged Miniatures to use in a Daemon Prince conversion. Actually, I'd stumbled across the Daemon parts while browsing for Alien-style models to use in my 40K Tyranid army, Hive Fleet Nostromo.
Turns out that Troll Forged makes a very sweet Alien-style monster (the "Larva Brain") that would make a nice Zoanthrope, or in my army, will stand in for the Ur-Zoanthrope, the "Doom of Malantai".
The Troll Forged model is a very clean one-piece casting in white resin, with a small integral base, and includes a large GW-style round base. It cleaned up easily with mild soap and water, and took primer very well. The only small caveat I have with the model is that the resin is somewhat "bendy", and didn't really straighten out even when run under hot water. But this was not much of a problem in the end as it's not noticeable once the model is positioned on the large round base. The Alien represents decent value for money as well, retailing for $12 in the Troll Forged online store.
