I can not recall this description for any troll in the Tokien's World. Can you please specify the source?
ok let's see if i can find these bad boys...
*some 15 minutes later*
GOT IT!! in The Battle of the Pelennor Fields (page 135 in my one):
"He was now destroyed; but Gothmog the lieutenant of Morgul had flung them into the fray; Easterlings with axes, and Variags of Khand, Southrons in scarlet, and out of Far Harad black men like half-trolls with white eyes and red tongues."
dunno why, they just intrigued me when i read the books when i was younger...
As I understand this- they were looking like trolls, BUT with white eyes and red tongues, given us the DIFFERENCE between these Harad-warriors and the trolls. Half-trolls could be more an image of size rather than racial integrity. Still this is not a description of a troll.
(Ammornil's personal opinion, based on presumption and not claiming to be genuine source of knowledge)
