The final theme round of Challenge IX, 'Fellowship', is now up on the gallery page. Please click over to see all the excellent entries.
I think you will all enjoy this closing round as there are many fabulous perspectives on the theme, from a downed Luftwaffe crew, and tight-knit LRDG squad, to a heroic band of mice and unlikely literary companions - you'll find an amazing assortment of all things companionable.
After you've enjoyed the gallery please take some time to vote for all your favourite entries.
Picking up from Frodo and Sam, here are the the seven remaining Companions of the Ring-bearer. All of these figures are first-run GW metals, which were a complete joy to work on.
When I was doing the finishing touches on the Fellowship set I thought back on the scene set in Balin's Tomb and realized that I could use the same setting to depict another fellowship, that of Ori and his few remaining kinsmen in their final stand against the orcs and Balrog in the fall of Moria.
These dwarf models are, again, venerable figures from GWs first LotR supplement, 'Shadow and Flame', released in 2003 (I was amazed I still had a few of these squirrelled away in the Lead Shed). I'm typically not a huge Dwarf aficionado, but these models were pretty darn cool, especially the heavily armoured Khazad Guard.
