Dire Trolls are known for their insatiable appetites. This one just prefers his calories in liquid form – BoLS takes a look at ROK!
Not all Dire Trolls are created equal and Rok is probably my favorite character warbeast in all of Hordes. Why? Cause he likes his booze and he likes his fightin’ – that’s a dire troll I’d want to have at my side!
This model is really well done in a mix of Resin and Metal. You’re going to want super glue for this job. The casting quality came out great and both materials really capture the detail of Rok and all his wild ferociousness. My two favorite bits from this kit were probably the axe and the torso of Rok. The Axe is massive and even the wood grain of the shaft is modeled very crisp. His torso has a ton of the rock/geode details protruding and he just looks cool. Overall, I think Rok is a great model kit and should be easy to assemble but a challenge to paint well. Hobbyist should get a kick out of this one for sure.
Players are probably already familiar with what Rok can do in the game and he’s drinking buddies with Borka…So it’s a natural fit to have Rok as Special Issue with the Kegslayer. His animus is Primal so it’s great for buffing a melee attack and he hits as hard as you’d imagine a big drinking dire troll would hit!
Rok is out now – so if you’re a Trollbloods Player and you haven’t picked up the Rok you may want to get on that!
Whenever a remote mountain village is found in ruins and with its taverns plundered, northerners speak fearfully of the dire troll called Rök. Although insatiable as any dire troll, over a century ago Rök developed a unique craving for beer and liquor of all sorts, and his raids of villages for their intoxicating spirits have since become legendary.
When he was sought out by Borka Kegslayer, Rök engaged the trollkin in an exhausting battle lasting several hours. After this, Kegslayer shared his own potent brew, convincing the ferocious troll they were kindred souls. When Borka left, Rök followed, knowing that greater fights and rivers of beer awaited them.
My name’s Rok and I like to party.
