Hi Aragorn,
I've seen some LOTR figures listed in "Amazing Figure Modeller" magazine. I will try to remember to look for them tonight, as I am at work right now. I see you found one of your namesake, and I've seen other busts of Frodo and Gandolf.

Go to E-bay and do a search titled "54mm" There are usually some LotR figures listed there.

I did a "google" search for Lord of the Rings, then did a search within for busts...
This is one of the pages that came up. I think it will help quench your thirst for LOTR figures

PS: I just took a longer look at this site and they appear to be pre-painted figures and busts.
The one that appears in your posts is among them and seems representative of the painting quality.

Try the Game Worshop line of LOTR figures. A little small but good details...

A friend of mine paints Lord of the Rings figures and they look pretty darn good. He uses the Games Workshop ones, they seem to have a good range and paint up really well using the Citadel acrylics.

I have just bought the "LOTR The two towers" miniature battle game from Games Workshop and I'm very pleased with the quality of the plastic figures(20 Uruk-Hai and 12 riders of Rohan). The scale is approximately 1/48 but it's difficult to say exactly. Someone else got Games Workshop LOTR figures?

Now I need some heroes! Maybe Elrond, Haldir and Boromir!


"There are signs on the Ring
Which makes me feel so down
There's one to enslave all Rings
To find them all in time
And drive them into darkness
Forever they'll be bound
Three for the Kings
Of the elves high in light
Nine to the mortal
Which cry "*
*From Blind Guardian's LOTR song

I bought a new LOTR Games Workshop set today. It"s the "Heros of Helm's deep" boxed set. It contains: Aragorn, Gimli, Legolas, Eowyn, Theoden, Gamling, Haldir, and a Wood Elf Standard Bearer. These are metal models in 28mm scale. All are realy beautiful figures designed by artist Brian Nelson.

Games Workshop does LOTR figures in 28mm, then there is a company called Mithril miniatures that does LOTR figures in 54mm. The used to be a company called Heritage that did LOTR figures in 70 mm but I haven't seen them in years.

I found Lord of the Rings figures by William Britains, www.wbritains.com . They are painted in the toy style but can be stripped down and given your own paint job. I managed to pick up a couple of good deals on E-bay.

Hope this helps
