Reaper Minis have previewed two of what they have called Bones Black figures coming out in 2019; a Troll and the Brain.

The troll, sculpted by Jason Wiebe, is my particular favourite of the pair. With its hulking, rocky frame, this is a monster you might expect to leap out on adventurers as they travel through a mountain pass.

However, its the face that I particularly like. Usually, when we see trolls, they're brutish and dumb, which is pretty far from their folkloric counterparts. This one looks crafty, cunning, and malicious. It's as though one of Arthur Rackham's illustrations has been hitting the gym!

The Brain, sculpted by Chris Lewis, is also a very effective model.

Maybe it's because I read Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix at a formative age, or maybe it's just that I don't like the idea of the thing in my skull going on walkabouts, but brain monsters like that really creep me out.

Of course, it's precisely because they are so disturbing that they turn up in games so often/ This model would make a fantastic Grell for D&D. Though I would also love to see this as the final boss in a dungeon, a creature using its abilities to control the other dark denizens of its domain.

Are you looking forward to seeing more of Reaper's brains and brawn?
