Mithril Miniatures Dwarf Pony
I bought this Mithril Miniatures model back in the 1990s from my local hobby shop, and I painted him a just few years ago. Mithril still produces Tolkien minis, but I think this particular model is out of production. They have had the official license for Lord of the Rings miniatures since about 1987. I read somewhere that Games Workshop is allowed to produce its LOTR minis at the same time as MIthril because they are for use in a game (as opposed to Mithril which are for display).
I mounted the this guy on a Games Workshop cavalry base. Mithril minis have very rounded features as you can see in this super-zoomed in photo. Their dwarves mix pretty well with GW LOTR dwarves even though the average Mithril man is supposed to be 32mm.
