September Mithril Fellowship Releases: Isengard Waymark Pillar and Elven Cartographer.

Mithril Miniatures has released two more 32mm scale metal miniatures that were winning ideas in our Fellowship club. These won September and November 2016 final voting rounds.
The Isengard Waymark pillar is an unusual architectural piece but has precedent as Mithril has released other pieces like the 'Doorway - The Chamber of Mazarbul' before. This pillar has a hand pointing towards the tower of Orthanc, the home of Saruman the turncoat wizard. This piece does require a little assembly as the base comes separate from the pillar. There is no primer.

The Elven Cartographer is not a named character figure or part of an army, that also shares a tradition among Fellowship releases, where the figure is not always part of the standard story-line in the books but exists in the larger world of Middle-earth. Other examples are, for example, 'Erebor Dwarven Merchant', 'Female Sylvan Elf' and 'Old woman with chickens'. These beautiful pieces adds that extra richness to the loved stories that J.R.R. Tolkien crafted with his writings allowing creative collectors to build dioramas that showcase elements of Middle-earth that are personal to themselves. This figure comes in three pieces and has no primer.
