YouTube videos targeting the 10 minute mark to chase your advertising bucks, I can sum it up for you quickly. (Though the video is good- just poking some fun)
- Spray the model black
- Heavily drybrush the model a medium grey
- Drybrush white on the most raised parts of the model
- Paint the model carefully with contrast paint (thin down at your leisure)
This troll was the first model I gave it a shot with and I am really quite happy with the results. I don't love the yellow-ish color I chose for the skin tone (Aggaros Dunes) but, it's fine. The other bits are Spacewolves Grey.

I am really a fan of the technique as one of my least favorite things with contrast painting is that mistakes- or rather areas left untouched by the brush- show up as white. This is glaring against the rest of the model... while black or grey sort of blends in like a shadow.

I think if I were to do it again I would go even heavier on the grey/white although... I really am happy to have this troll look a little darker than he otherwise would with regular contrast.
Give it a shot! You may enjoy it! I love painting quickly and getting results fast. It's not gonna win any awards, and Troll Boy gets why. Don't you, Troll Boy?
