Mithril Releases: MS576 Junast & MS577 Huorn metal figures.

Mithril Miniatures has released two new 32mm scale metal miniatures in April 2012. These won September and October 2012 votes in the Mithril Fellowship club.

Junast of Far-Harad
Huorns are some of the oldest creatures on Middle-earth. According to Treebeard, they are wild and dangerous, but the Ents take care of them. They may have been Ents that became tree-ish or Trees that became Ent-ish. Or both.They can only communicate with Ents, not other creatures. They have the ability to create darkness to cover their movements, which can be quick and quite, despite their size and shape. Here you see a Huorn dismember an Isengard Orc that was fleeing from the broken siege of Helm’s Deep.

Huorn Junast is an ICE generated character, who appears in the LotR RPG module FAR HARAD (p.17). He was a simple goatherder who undertook a dangerous quest to destroy the body that Vatra (an avatar of Sauron) was creating for himself in the Land of the Sun. He partially succeeded in his quest and at least delayed the return of Vatra.
