Lets us begin with the box.
The troll warrior and his might cart.
Set sets for children to pester for at Christmas.
Now for what’s inside.
The contents of the box, it doesn’t look like much.
Now for the troll himself, I’m glad they selected this troll torso rather than the other one for the impulse set I think this one is the superior one. Also he comes well armed with a spear and sword but no shield sadly.
Someone really needs to look at the rodent problem in the Castle sets..
Now the cart, nice easy construction as with all impulse sets, I’m still not convinced by the flicking missiles.
A line of those would do some damage.
What an oncoming army can expect to see..
All together now and it looks rather good.
So there we have it a cheap way of bolstering the troll army and outfitting them with some more weapons. Also for anyone planning a Pied Piper MOC another set with a rat in it.
The Rating System
Figures: 8/10 (|Preferred troll torso and helmet style. )
Parts 7/10 (Two spears and a sword but sadly lacking that all important shield.)
Fun Fun Fun 4/10 (Somewhat more to do on it’s own that other impulse at least the troll can fight the rat!)
Design 7/10 (Well designed even the flicker missile doesn’t look bad)
Price 8/10 (At £2.50 more than the other castle impulse.)
Grand Total 34/50 (Lack of a shield and to small to stand alone for my rating system..)
Castle fans got a great army builder with The Knight and they’ve been lucky enough to receive another one with this set. I’m glad we’ve got a troll impulse as it allow for enlarging the armies of evil some the Crown Knight don’t totally outnumber all their opponents.
