Vintage, Custom Cast, Der Kriegspieler - Fantastiques
Lord of the Rings Figure
This rare OOP miniature is from the Custom Cast, Der Kriegspieler - Fantastiques - 25mm SPECIAL PERSONALITY SETS #1055 The Foes. The Custom Cast, Fantastiques line was one of the first series of minatures Based on J.R.R. Tolkien's ' The Lord of the Rings' making it attractive to both Tolkien memorabilia collectors and wargamers. This figure bears the Red Eye of Sauron's troops on his shield and rides an impressive, twisted steed. Crowolf states "They were manufactured around 1975 and were the first fantasy miniatures I ever owned. My memory is that this was suppossed to be "the Mouth of Sauron" but I have only been able to confirm that he was part of the "foes" set." He has been repainted and mounted on a plastic Games Workshop calvary base by award winning artist, Crowolf. It is signed and dated by the artist. The mounted figures in this series were at the large end of the 25mm scale and would fit in well with a Warhammer Chaos Army. This figure is around 50mm high. We may offer more of these figures from "Crowolf's Crypt" in the future. Contact us for informative links on the history of these early miniatures. This miniature was offered for sale on ebay but did not meet its reserve, so we will consider offers for it.
