Warpstone Trolls are Big Guys that may be hired exclusively by Underworld teams. They are similar, for the most part, to standard Trolls. Warpstone Trolls, however, have been affected by the radioactive substance known as Warpstone, and as a result, many have developed mutations.
There are currently no official Blood Bowl miniatures to represent Warpstone Trolls. However, several may be sourced with a careful search of sources for Alternative Miniatures.

Warpstone Trolls begin with the Loner, Always Hungry, Mighty Blow, Really Stupid, Regeneration, and Throw Team-Mate Skills. Upon advancement, Warpstone Trolls have normal acces to Strength and Mutation skills; on doubles, Warpstone Trolls have access to General, Agility, and Passing skills.
Warpstone Trolls are big, nasty, behemoths capable of inflcting a great deal pf punishment upon their enemies. They can also be somewhat useful with Stunty players, as the Throw Team-Mate skill allows them to rapidly advance their diminutive friends up the pitch. They are sometimes regarded as the best protected Big Guys in Blood Bowl, since the Regeneration skill allows them to shrug off damage that would kill off most other Big Guys.
That said, Warpstone Trolls are most commonly used defensively. The Really Stupid skill ensures that Warpstone Trolls are not the most reliable of players, and their relatively slow movement and tendency to eat the same players they are capable of throwing with the Always Hungry skill makes them less desirable in a highly offensive mode. Underworld Players tend to favor Warpstone Trolls as eventual additions to the roster, as they provide valuable muscle on a team that can be very fragile, particularly if it is unlucky with dice rolling and/or skill advancement.
