New LOTR Release MS582 'Goldberry communing with river' Mithril metal miniature

This miniature was released in November 2012. It was March 2012's winning idea in the Fellowship Club.

According to Tom Bombadil, he found her long ago by the pool where he gathers water-lilies from the Withywindle river. The races of Tom Bombadil and Goldberry are not known though Goldberry is said to be the daughter of the River-woman. Her voice is beautiful, "as young and as ancient as spring," like the song of a glad water flowing down into the night from a bright morning in the hills." She has long blonde hair, and when Frodo Baggins, Meriadoc Brandybuck, Peregrin Took, and Sam Gamgee first see her, she is wearing a green dress shot with silver and a gold belt. Wide vessels of green and brown earthenware hold floating water-lilies so she seems to be enthroned in the middle of a pool.

This miniature is aimed to depict Goldberry in the river, water up to knee, raising her skirt with one hand. She is bending over the river flow and touches the surface with the other hand. While the river is not present, any diorama builder can easily add this figure into such a scenario.
