My Gimli: A Grenadier Dwarf

I was looking through my old unfinished blog posts and found this shot of a Grenadier Fantasy Warriors dwarf. I believe this was sculpted by Nick Lund. I got him on eBay and painted him to be Gimli. The rest of my in progress 28mm Fellowship of the Ring is made up of models from Vendel Miniatures models and Mark Copplestone.

You can see my Strider and Gollum models in an old post. I painted the Copplestone Castings wizard as Gandalf a few years ago. I'll have to take his picture this weekend.

Although a history fan, I cannot ignore the fact that this is a greatly painted figure! :-)

Great stuff - he makes a very good Gimli.

Strider and Gollum are pretty cool too!

I keep toying with the idea of doing the fellowship of the ring myself...

Very nice! Gimli and Strider and Gollum. You have great attention to detail.

Thanks guys! I appreciate the comments. I don't belong to a wargaming group, so it's good to hear the compliments.

I love your Gimli. He'd be right at home in a historical army as a real dwarf :)
