I'm a new Warriors of Chaos player and am looking towards maybe using some trolls in my list. I was browsing on the website and looking at the trolls and they don't look particularly spectacular, though I've never really seen one in person so I couldn't say what they do look like. I was wondering if anyone knows if it would be possible to use one of the Lord of the Rings battle game trolls. They look pretty neat, but would they be too large or shunned upon if I end up going to a store game with 'em?
Yeah that's a great idea but if you are worried about people "shunning the non believer" then you should just convert it a bit (or a lot) so you have some chaos icons on him.
Another option is find a model from a small model company (there are quite a few on the web) and buy something from them. This might cost more money (might not) but some of the models are great.
I'll look into that too.
Some of the ogre models would look fantastic with minimal conversion in a troll army too.
And over there we have the labyrinth guards.
One always lies, one always tells the truth, and one stabs people who ask tricky questions.
Only issue you may have is if you go anywhere official GW since they frown upon warhammer/LOTR conversions (legal reasons, I think New Line Cinema own the image of a lot of stuff). Any normal people probably won't mind!
The whole thing about not converting 40k and fantasy models with lotr's ones has pretty much gone out the window. At least that was how it was when i worked with Gw anyway.
The isenguard and mordor trolls would be too big for normal Fantasy trolls but the cave trolls would be ideal. There is also about 4 different cave trolls plus a cave troll cheiftan called BurDhur which will give you a decent range of models to choose from.
Although i'd deffinatly convert them and do soemthing to them to make them more 'fantasy' and 'chaosy'

The last 'official' GW policy I saw on using LOTR parts/minis was that the army is not eligible for best presentation and can't have pictures published if you happen to win something else. (Warhammer World events of course)
