New LOTR Release Christmas 2012 'Girion of Dale' Mithril metal miniature
This miniature was released in December 2012.
Mithril Miniatures have a tradition of making a special figure at Christmas.
A Northmen city on the Southern slopes of Erebor, Dale was a thriving and wealthy city for much of the Third-age. It's wealth was based largely upon its trade with the Dwarves of Erebor, and its culture and costume had much Dwarven influence. It's last king, Girion, is depicted wearing a high-pointed helm of Dwarven design with a long surcoat of fine wrought mail. The city was destroyed by Smaug when he descended upon the lonely mountain in 2770 T.A. and Girion was killed in the inferno. Bard the archer of Laketown was a descendant of Girion and Bard’s own grandson became king of the re-founded city after the War of the Ring. This figure is available Antique Finished and Unprimed while stocks last.
