Troll Chieftan

The Mordor Troll Chieftan, a great behemoth of a beast, intent on death and destruction.


A slightly tricky model to photograph for best effect as it has a very stooped forward pose. I tipped it on on a small prop to better view the face, although still somewhat in shadow.


I can't recall if a troll captain features explicitly in the books, but he makes a wonderful movie appearance fighting against Aragorn at the Black Gates at the end of the movie, The Return of the King.

  1. In fact, he does. He gets stabbed by Pippin at the Black Gate

  2. Indeed he does, just as he is about to rip out Beregond's throat! Good old Pippin saves the day.
