New Northkin Trolls come bounding in from Privateer Press. Looks like a chilly reception.

That’s right friends, new trolls are headed this way. Check out the Ice, Winter, and Basher, coming soon to a tabletop near you.

Winter Troll$19.99

Long feared by all who dwell in the frozen northern regions, this fierce troll happily endures extreme cold that would slay most living things. At one with ice and snow, winter trolls expel great gusts of frozen air that rip foes apart. Even striking a winter troll’s flesh prompts a backlash of intense cold that paralyzes its opponents.

Ice Troll$19.99

Ice trolls use their innate connection to the elemental power of cold to create frozen javelins from thin air. They hurl these projectiles great distances to impale hapless warriors and pierce the flesh of warbeasts. Any who survive the impact die slow

Troll Basher $19.99

Wielding enormous maces made from salvaged scrap metal, the ferocious troll basher is the favored warbeast of many Northkin. Troll Bashers are quick to anger and enjoy crushing enemies before devouring them. Northkin warlocks often let their bashers run at the fore of battle. There, their wild swings can cause the greatest harm to massed enemy troops.

You might say that it’s real ice to meet these trolls.

    Are they all the same body but different legs and arms? All one kit (possibly magnetiseable)?

    • Jon Ow

      Based on past light warbeast from PP, they would share the same body but they would all be sold as separate kits so no point magnetizing then. You can see the product code is all different. If it was jsut one kit with multiple options they would all share the product code.

        Oh, ok, so it’s not like the Dire Troll Bomber/Mauler/Blitzer kit I bought so many years ago. Bit of a shame, but I’ll admit I wasn’t expecting it.

          True, I don’t like getting an icicle in the face as much as the next guy but I think the reason why light beasts/jacks are kept in separate boxes is just to keep the costs down for those models.

          • Jon Ow

            Might only be keeping the cost down for PP and their profits up since it prevents people from magnetizing. PP saves money on tooling and sculpting having the same body and only needs to make new designs for the heads and weapons.

            Even worse is since its plastic (or whatever resin they use), you can’t get the extra parts from the bits shop either. It wouldn’t be such a big thing if I wasn’t so sick of so many Skorne Cyclops savages and Convergence mitigators.

            That is true?
