Man. I just want to punch the shit out of that elf bitch holding the no sign. She reminds me of Janeane Garofalo.
I was permanently banned from the forums for consistently attacking my fellow posters and trolling the boards. I thought I could get "revenge" on FastJack for being banned by updating my sig to insult him, but all it proved was how much of an idiot I am.

The guy next to the no sign looks like a guy who is just wearing fake horns, no place where the horns would actually grow out of the skull :D

But what do the green scarves mean (if they mean anything)? I admit I did not really follow the Ork Underground storyline...

It did actually remind me of Saint Patrick's Day mixed with an election mixed with Halloween.

It was a good flavour.   ;D

They don't really mean anything specific, so far as I know.  Not certain why he used those like that, but they're kind of neat.  I sort of assume they're a gang symbol of some kind.

As for the horns, I imagine that they're just one of the many Troll horn variations.  Something that grows up from the middle of the skull and than curves around and up.  Similar to the Cape Buffalo:

The Green scarves are the "ribbons" in support of prop 23.
Look at the pic, everything in favor is in green, everything opposed is in blue.


Also, my group got in. Signing my third NDA for Cata tomorrow.

I can't wait for this game to come out, I want to find a way to use my VOR mini's as a gang! Hopefully it will have something like that.

That image illustrates exactly what the problem is: The horns grow out of two points in the skull, there is not one continuous horn going over the full skull and curving up on both sides. Only on a costume prop it makes sense to have one continuous horn.

I mean artwork of trolls fluctuates between "straight out of Mordor" and "just a tall guy with horns" (and has always done), but as far as I remember at least that aspect is consistent ;)

Fine, new official explanation!

John Samson has an embarrassaing secret.  He suffers from an ailment that one out of every 10,000 trolls suffers from: Cope's Disease.  Cope's disease weakens the structure of troll horns, causing them to fall out.  Most trolls effected by this are over the age of 40, but John was stricken when he was 18. He was mocked and ridiculed by every trolls he knew, because horns are frequently a source of pride among them.  So now John wears Hornpiece for Trolls, an artificial set of horns designed to hide the fact that he has no horns.  They look awful, and everyone knows they're fake, but everyone is too polite to say anything.  They're the troll equivalent of a toupee.

:)

Now, isn't this supposed to be about the mini's game? :)

With a bit of work, it shouldn't be toooooooooo hard. Maybe find a minataurs head, or maybe a beastman from Warhammer... a bit of cutting and glueing and done!

Looking forward to metahuman (particular troll) figures and spirits and maybe, just maybe... some critters?

One of the guys on my team wants to build the Ancients.  Me?  Halloweeners... heheheheh
