Mithril's Entombed Balrog Stirs to wreak havok.

The Entombed Balrog Mithril Miniatures has released September 2010's winning suggestion from the Fellowship Club this April. 'The Entombed Balrog' is one of the larger releases in the exclusive range of collectable figurines based on 'The Hobbit' and 'The Lord of the Rings' books written by J.R.R. Tolkien. This Balrog was suggested by 'Grond' (username of member) and comes in several pieces so assembly is definitely required. It will NOT be primed as it requires assembly and therefore will need to be primed afterwards. It measures 55 mm in height, measured from its base to the top of the wings. For those who also purchased the original Mithril Balrog box set, the new one is much smaller, partly due to its pose but also due to its many thousands of years of slumber depleting its power.

History: The Balrogs or fire demons were the mightiest of the servants of Morgoth. They were his strongest forces in his battle against the Valar in the First-age of Middle-earth, and possessed not only great strength , but intelligence and sorcery also. They were finally destroyed in the great war between the Valar and Morgoth but at least one survived the breaking of Thangorodrim, fleeing to the east and hiding itself in the very roots of the Misty mountains.

Here the Balrog lay undisturbed and entombed for countless centuries until during the Third-age of Middle-earth the Dwarven miners sunk deep shafts into the mountain roots in their quest for Mithril. Here they unwittingly disturbed the crouching form of the somnolent Balrog.
