So yesterday I go out and spend £156 (alot when your only 16) buying 13 trolls for my Throgg army, anyway I get home from school today and go onto the website. Guess what I see.................
Why GW, WHY DO THIS TO ME!!!!!!!
if i had brought this box set i would have got 15 trolls for £135.
Sell your current trolls on Ebay and go out and buy the new plastic ones... are you talking about the new O&G trolls?
yeah i am talking about the O&G trolls, even if I do sell them on Ebay I wont make back the money I spent on them so it is really annoying!!!
I feel sorry for you!
The only thing I can say to you is to assume your choice and continue without looking back. Like we often say, grass is always greener elsewhere. It is very easy to destroy or scrap your models just to get newer ones or yet because you decided to change your list. Getting the models, assembling and painting only one army list is a lot harder and requires dedication, time and money. If haven't invested time in those metal troll you can probably sell them and perhaps save some money but otherwise your not advancing with your project. But then again this is an advice from someone who's about twice your age and free time is getting extremely rare these days.
You could also spend extra time converting your metal trolls to make for a very unique army, you might find with some greenstuff and plasticard and maybe a few household items you could turn your Trolls into something you enjoy the look of more than the new O&G Trolls.
It would help if GW gave us more of a heads up when it comes to thier release schedule. I've always found it rediculous that GW is so tight-lipped about what they are releasing and when. But this is how they have come to maximize profit.
have you already opened the packages? I've heard that GW stores are pretty easy going on return policies, talk to the manager and see if he could pull some strings?
"Thank him who puts me loath to this revenge on you who wrong me not for him who wrongd"
Take the trolls back and tell them it's bullshit, GW will definitely exchange them.

its too late for me to trade them in. I have already opened a few of them and I want my army to be consistant so I have kept the metal ones, brought so greemstuff and I am planning on doing masses of conversion.
Wish me luck
P.S anybody have any ideas on how to convert Throgg/distingish him from the rest of the trolls
Maybe use spawn bits to replace/modify some body part (you could give him a crown of horns) or sit him on a big rock to make him stand out.
talismans... spiky bits from the Dark Eldar Warrior sprues, some Space wolf bits, model him with the largest tusks, possibly small Tzeentchish tendrills sticking out here and there, and I would personally give him the most elaborate base. Jewelry around his wrists and hanging from his ears arms is probably good too. These are all just my opinions, do what you like but make sure to have fun with it
oh, also maybe a crown of thorns, or something akin to greasus' crown.
