Rocktrolls Customs - Exclusive's repaints

First I want to say thanks to the very cool people here at Heroscapers who always help out with good advice and are happy to answer my MANY questions on how things are done and what should I do to get X result.

After seeing so many great customs on these boards, I was inspired to try doing some of my own ( or copies of others great ideas)

Greenstuff and Instant Mold

I decided to try out these two products, I bought in total around 8 feet of Greenstuff ( $17 per 36 inches) and instant mold ($14 )

Most of the units I still want are going for about $15-$26 each on ebay and online so decided to go ahead and start making them.

So far I have been able to make 12 spiders, 13 dwarves, 1 Sacred Band, 2 Gladiatrons and 4 Aubrien Archers. Ill post pictures of them soon. This method is not too hard but takes a very long time to do.


These are my current projects ( too many at once!! )

Can’t wait to jump in now right?




Originally costing $20 this Terrain expansion set was not only picked up by Heroscapers but other table top gamers for the cool scenery that it included. At $20 it was a great price considering the other limited options out there.
Buying a Ticalla Jungle set now is expensive; you can still find them often but in the $70-$90 range. Several Scapers on this board have made their own jungle sets and provided useful guides on what materials they used and how they pieced them together. Great guides and you should defiantly check them out if you have not before.
Using a lot of tips and advice from these guides I decided to do my own take on this fun expansion set and these are the results;



If you’re interested in how I made these and what I used, read my guide below and let me know what you think, positive criticism is always welcome and encouraged!

WOW - great repaints and customs, they rock, I love the new knights, so cool to be able to field different looking knights - I really like them..
The marro on the skeleton- elephant just rocks, even with the bad lighting I want one - you gotta make up a custom for that. I would like to see him by Stompy to compare size. He could have the stomp special ability, a tusk attack special, and a regular ranged attack - thanks for posting!!!!

Thanks guys, Ill take better pictures of them today and repost them.


The colors on the elephant where easy to do. I used games workshop colors.

First a base coat of rotting flesh ( a kind of bone yellow looking color)
Then a wash of brown ink ( I use magic wash, thats 1/4 of future floor wax with 3/4 of water) Helps the colors sink into the model better.

I dont even have a name for this guy yet, or a card. Just saw Justjohn's repaint and went OOH I want one !!. Ill post one standing next to another figure soon as I take a picture

Outstanding repaint on Hawthorne. You can't tell the difference from the real deal.

Those Knights and Flagbearer are top notch man. Great job

I had a blast doing the Sir H repaint, in fact if any one is interested in me repainting one for them give me a PM

Ill do it for almost free! ( well I would have to pay shipping and I would need you to send me the model since I dont have any spares) but other then that, thats pretty much it


As for my knights, wish I could find where the heck I left my old warhammer decals so I can decorate their shields.

This was a pleasant surprise, I opened this thread thinking it was a misnamed thread about repaint lavagolems (stone golems) and was excited when I saw some major kitbashing going on. Love the orc, he looks brutal.

Dude, I love the mammoth-mounted marro gunner! Do you know if they still sell those Yu-Gi-Oh! figures? I feel like I saw them at some point in time at Wal-Mart or Toys-R-Us, but that stuff changes all the time. I might make my own and come up with a custom card if you don't :P
That rhino is ridiculously huge, but I suppose you could call it "genetically enhanced" or something I've got my own copy of Battlemasters, and we haven't played it since I was a little kid. If my dad isn't emotionally attached I'll have to repaint, possibly hack up the pieces and see what kind of customs I can come up with. First I need spare Heroscape bases, though... I really must get a second Master Set one day but I can't quite afford it at this time.

Thanks for the kind words


First, the marro elephant is actualy a creation of Justjohn's. You can see his custom here;
Justjohns Customs

The rhino I want to do is inspired by Kings_Knight rhino;
Kings_Knight Customs


For the marro, I looked up Yu-gi-oh mammoth on ebay and found it for $.99

On the battlemasters, you grab the man at arms, grind him on a sidewalk ( I didnt have any cutting tools) till you reach his belt, carve the little bit of shield you have left, and break off the small bar holding his legs together.

As for the knights, carve off this legs, and waist, shave off his plume, and remove his right arm. You will need to find an arm off another willing soldier , glue it all together. I used a small strip of epoxy to make a belt for them so you cant see the mismatched waist.

Easy as hell to paint, black undercoat + one coat of silver + one black wash.

Marine blue for their shields and your done.
