Not bad, just tacking on 1 Stained Glass limb in particular is somewhat cheap at 2000 gp + 40 xp. Our Mind Flayer cabal tacks on resistance boosting gear and spells before performing the operation, to help ensure the Golden Gheden Voidmind Trolls make their will save (if they lose their con score, their regeneration becomes useless). There will still be a 5% attrition rate at this stage due to those which fail their saves on a natural 1.

Some classes like Dweomerkeeper can cast Wail of Banshee as an Su ability, dropping your clustered troops all at once. I would hope for true death/polymorph immunity outright.
Edit: Actually, using Half Emerald Dragon Crystalline Trolls would protect them against hotter-than-normal-fire damage, like hellfire and divine fire.
