Mithril LOTR The White Council release: November 2010.

Amazing!, Stunning!, Incredible! Words fail to describe how wonderful the new Lord of the Rings miniature box set released in November 2010 by Mithril Miniatures is. Filled with detail lovingly crafted by our whizz sculptor, Chris Tubb. There are 5 characters, Gandalf the Grey, Saruman the White, Elrond, Galadriel and Cirdan, as well as 8 chairs, a large inscribed base and a matching table with 4 legs. It will be packed in a beautiful blue box. All for just 64.95 Euro.

The website has loads of photos from different angles and a downloadable pdf assembly guide (also included in the box).

"The White Council was formed in the Third-age to counter the re-emergence of the Dark Lord in Middle-earth. Its members comprised the Istari and the Wise amongst the Elven folk and Saruman was appointed as its head. Its first meeting was called by Galadriel in order to decide how best to discover the identity of the Necromancer of Mirkwood. By its second meeting in T.A. 2851 Saruman had already been corrupted by the Dark-lord through use of the Palantir and he blocked Gandalf's proposed attack on Dol Guldur.

The diorama depicts this second meeting of the White council in which Gandalf is proposing the attack to an unbending Saruman, while Galadriel, Elrond and Cirdan look on."
