Showcase - Glorfindel and Erestor

Woah! What's that? Another Lord of the Rings showcase? it certainly is! Following hot on the heals of Elrond and Gil-galad are two of Games Workshops finer additions to the lotr range.


I believe these were some of the later releases pre-Hobbit SBG and as such are a bit oversized when compared to the earlier high elf stuff, regardless they are some beautiful models with some pretty fun rules and I wouldn't consider my elvish army complete without them.

Erestor


"That is the path of despair. Of folly I would say, if the long wisdom of Elrond did not forbid me."—The Fellowship of the Ring, The Council of Elrond



Glorfindel


"He was tall and straight; his hair was of shining gold, his face fair and young and fearless and full of joy; his eyes were bright and clean, and his voice like music; on his brow set wisdom, and in his hand was strength."—The Fellowship of the Ring, Many Meetings


And of course I couldn't not get the four of them together for a group photo, I'm looking forward to using them in a game soon against my gaming buddies!

Edit:
Hi all, Quick edit just to add a paint card for 'Elvish' Gold, Now you can match the gold used on my high elves:

 Remember to check out the 'let's paint - Galadhrim Warriors' youtube video as well!
