Description

Toward the end of the Third Age, it was believed that Sauron created a different bred of Trolls, seen among the trees of the southern Mirkwood and the borders of Mordor. Even prior to Frodo's departure, it was rumored that "Trolls were abroad, no longer dull-witted, but cunning and armed with dreadful weapons" (FotR, Book 1, Chapter 2)

These trolls were considered stronger and superior to other trolls in almost every way "Olag-hai they were called in the Black Speech. That Sauron bred them none doubted...Trolls they were, but filled with the evil will of their master: a fell race, strong, agile, fierce and cunning, but harder than stone. Unlike the older race of the Twilight they could endure the Sun, so long as the will of Sauron held sway over them. They spoke little, and the only tongue that they knew was the Black Speech of Barad-dur"
(RotK, Appendix F)

The Olag-hai were feared and rightly so, armed with fangs and stone-scaled as others of the Troll race, they carried shields, round and huge and swung mighty hammers. Utilized in battles, they participated in the march with the hosts of Mordor in the Battle of the Pelenor Field, and also were involved in the battle on the Field of Cormallen before the Morannon - "But through them there came striding up, roaring like beasts, a great company of hill-trolls out of Gorgoroth. Taller and broader than Men they were, and they were clad only in close-fitting mesh of horny scales, or maybe it that was their hideous hide; but they bore round bucklers huge and black and wielded heavy hammers in their knotted hands..."
(RotK, Chapter 10, The Black Gate Opens)

Jason Gorda commissioned this Designer Troll and worked with Chris Tubb in finalizing the details, pose and accessories.

It is primed in Mithril's special paint, and will need some assembly. Glue is not included.
