Gundabad now has Trolls! Fortunately the Iron Hill Dwarf Warbands are here to help.

Forge World has some new Gundabad Troll out – not to be confused with the Gundabad Ogres from earlier this year. And the Iron Hills get some new Command help!

via Forge World

Gundabad Troll with Crushing Club £60

Amongst the deadliest of creatures under Azog‘s command are the Trolls of Gundabad. These massive beasts are clad in crude metal armour and wield either a huge wooden club capable of turning even the mightiest warriors to paste, or a pair of deadly scythe gauntlets that can effortlessly slice Man and beast in two. The sight of such a fearsome foe is enough to cause doubt in even the bravest of hearts.

Gundabad Trolls are both a Monster and a Warrior for the Azog’s Legion army list, allowing you to take multiple examples of these brutish creatures in your force. The Gundabad Troll with Crushing Club is capable of easily squashing an enemy flat with a single downward swipe, and has a particular hatred of Elves and Dwarves, fighting with increased fury when pitted against either. Its bulky form is encased in hastily cobbled-together plates of armour, virtually bursting at the seams with strength it would be unwise to underestimate. This model’s head is clad in a sinister metal helmet – should you wish for a different look, the head can be exchanged for the one found in the Gundabad Troll with Scythe Gauntlets.

This multi-part resin kit comes as 7 components, and is supplied with an 80mm round base.

The Gundabad Troll with Scythe Gauntlets can hack an opponent in half with a single, swift strike, and has a particular hatred of Elves and Dwarves, fighting with increased fury when pitted against either. Its bulky form is encased in hastily cobbled-together plates of armour, virtually bursting at the seams with strength it would be unwise to underestimate. This model’s head is an especially ugly highlight – but should you wish for a different look, the head can be exchanged for the helmet-clad one found in the Gundabad Troll with Crushing Club.

Iron Hills Dwarf Command with Mattocks £20

t the forefront of the armies of the Iron Hills stand the Iron Hills Captains. Stalwart and hardy, these Dwarven veterans are handpicked to lead by Dain Ironfoot himself and have proven to be capable fighters in all manner of warfare. Yet it is their tactical minds that truly set the Iron Hills Captains apart from their kin. Their abilities in commanding their forces are second to none and have made the armies of the Iron Hills the most feared Dwarven fighting force east of the Dimrill Dale.

Some Dwarves are tasked with flying the colours of the Iron Hills as they march tirelessly into the fray. Whilst the banners of Dain Ironfoot stay flying, the Dwarves who fight under them will do so with redoubled fury.

The Iron Hills Command set contains one Iron Hills Dwarf Captain with Mattock and one Iron Hills Dwarf with Banner and Sword. Iron Hills Dwarf Captains are ideal leaders for both an Erebor Reclaimed and an Iron Hills army list. The tactical minds of these Captains are amongst the greatest in Middle-earth™. Decades of war with Orcs, Goblins and other Evil beings have taught them how to watch for the movements and plans of their foes, and how to best react to counter them and achieve victory. The kit also contains an extra shield, which can be optionally mounted on the back of your banner bearer.

Those Trolls look MASSIVE. If you’re up against them I hope you brought something to take them out…you’re in for a Gundabad time!
