I said on Pascal's (Sam's Mini World) blog that I would try to show my hobbits from Prince August's Mithril range. Here are two of them, Bilbo and Gollum.
Painted mid 80s with Humbrol's matt enamel and with a sharpened tooth-pick (didn't use a brush at the time).
And here are two more hobbits in an even less safe situation, Merry and Pippin.
And here is a lute-player. All of them is in scale 28mm. (Hmm, on the homepage they say 32mm).
Somewhere I have Sam, Frodo and Shelob and all of the brotherhood. But I don't have the time to look for them right now so this will have to do. Can really recommend Prince August's Mithril range. And you can buy fantasy moulds to cast your own figures too. :-D Some moulds are 25mm they say, but they are NOT 1/72.
But VERY VERY VERY expensive!!! Didn't cost so much when I bought them! Pity. :-(
