In 2001 Games Workshop began releasing miniatures based on the characters from Peter Jackson's first film based on Lord of the Rings: Fellowship of the Ring.
One of the boxes of figures was the Fellowship of the Ring. The figures, cast in white metal were accurate representations of the actors as they appeared in the film.
These were the first figures I had painted on a black undercoat.
They have spent nearly twenty years in my display cabinet, and I only just realised that I had not photographed them (I would not have a digital camera for nearly another four years).
Frodo Baggins with the magical weapon Sting. Evidently there are goblins nearby.
