I'm looking for some opinions concerning size/style to convert a Storm Troll into a Chaos Pact Troll. :)

I do love the Privateer Press Trollbloods a lot, I played them for a while.

You mean this one?

According to the Privateer Website it is on a 40 mm base.
I think that guy will end up being pretty damn large against other players.

That one exactly! I was afraid that it will be too big judging from the base size too. Hope someone to prove me wrong with a picture :)

I just realized something...

Those are the two trolls I'm using for my Gobo team I recently built:

In this picture I used other bases but I just saw that they originally are on 40 mm bases too!
Might be I just thought of the Dire Troll Mauler, who sits on a 50 mm base when I posted.

Maybe the Storm Troll could fit, as he seems less wide and more tall.

They look quite nice too! As I don't play Warmachine/Hordes, what are the names of those trolls? It seems that I'll just have to order the storm troll and see how big he is. :)

Reaper minatures has some decent sized trolls for Blood Bowl, I have the cave troll for example but you can search for others too https://www.reapermini.com/OnlineStore/Troll

As I'm in the UK I order them from this guy http://miniature-heroes.co.uk

Thanks, Frogboy! The cave troll was the other one I liked, but not sure about the mini's details. Does it look good compared to the other BB minis? Would you bother to post some pictures?

The two trolls I've used are a Troll Axer and a Troll Bouncer.

Hmm, even more options. Thanks, mate! I will probably order the storm troll, although he has no armor - the troll bouncer on the other hand is almost ready for play. Does the shield has to be removed or is it a separate piece?

Shield is 100 % separate, otherwise I couldn't have done the conversion.
If I remember correctly, even the ball and chain is separate, not 100 % sure though.
But his right arm will have some chain wound around it, even with a padlock (See pic in previous post!).
That would be very hard to remove but I think it looks awesome.

I reused it for my Goblin Fanatic conversion...

The mini looks way better IRL than this pic.

Yeah, the chain around the arm is very good, no need to shave it. I was thinking about a goblin conversion too, but your goblin looks awesome. I would never think of this exact pose. Good job, mate!

I've had a thread where I was looking for miniatures to flesh out the 5 teams that were, more or less, unofficial: Chaos Pact, Slann, Underworld, Bretonnia and Khorne.
You can find it >>>here<<<.
On the next to last page, I posted all miniatires I used, though unpainted.
Check them out, maybe you get some inspiration.

Also, way back in time, there was a "favorite Troll" thread, maybe you'll find something in there too.

Thanks, man! I will definitely check your thread. I already checked the "Favourite Troll" one (and looked about every troll BB miniature probably). I want some more muscular troll for my team and not a "skinny"one. So Hordes' Trolls look good. I've got this one (for my orcs) http://shop.bigchildcreatives.com/index.php?id_product=32&controller=product&id_lang=3, but need another strong one for a chaos pact I'm building.

Oh, wow, that trll sure as hell fits in nicely with some orcs, no doubt.
I always thought that Privateer had marvelous sculptors and I always loved their miniatures.
So I started with Cryx when Warmachine came out and immediately jumped to Trollbloods when Hordes started and was compatible with Warmachine.

I do remember as we stood in awe when the first "Extreme" mini hit the shelves, it was the Dire Troll Mauler Extreme.
Here he is on the right in comparison with the original Dire Troll Mauler, a mini that I fell in love with in an instant.

Unfortunately, most of their stuff is simply to large! Look at my post about the mini that would have made such an awesome Khorne Demon....

Not finished...

This is the Bones one. So not sure if the detail is any deferent to metal. But the size is right and I'm not the best painter anyway.
