The Hobbit, The Desolation of Smaug New Miniatures from GamesWorkshop

GamesWorkhop is releasing a new crop of Citadel Finecast figures for The Hobbit The Desolation of Smaug. As of this post they are available for pre-order. You can get them from your local retailer or directly from the GameWorkshop site.

First up is a new Beorn figure included in a set with his Bear form. The kit has 7 components with which to make Beorn the man and Beor the Bear.

Beorn makes his home on the outskirts of Mirkwood. He is a skin-changer, a man with the ability to change his form into that of a bear. In the struggle against evil, Beorn is a mighty force for good.

Thranduil the Elvenking is always vigilant and understandably suspicious when strangers pass into his domain.

A dark power is gathering strength in Dol Guldur and as the ruler of Mirkwood Thranduil and his elves are on their guard.

Captains of Gundabad are the most sturdy and ruthless Orcs in the Misty Mountains. They are the warriors the greatest Orc warlords surround themselves with.

Gundabad Orc Swordsman are regimented and trained to a high standard. This makers them bloody-minded and powerful fighters.

Or if you prefer brutal soldiers whose reserves of strength and resilience are without limit... 
the Gundabad Orc Spearman are for you. These hated foes of the Dwarves have spent many years and lives waging war against them.

Both of the Citadel Finecast kits contain 6 components with which to make 3 Gundabad Orc Swordsman or 3 Gundabad Orc Spearman.

And last but not least is Girion, Lord of Dale. Girion is a mighty king, much beloved by his people. He is determined to defend Dale at all costs from the coming of Smaug the Terrible.

Speaking of costs, the Gundabad Orc sets will run you 25 USD and 15 for the Orc Captain. Thranduil and Girion will shave 20 USD out of your wallet and the Beorn and Bear set will retail for 50 USD.

Have a Great Battle,
The Old Crow
