The Northern kingdom of Arnor, split into three often vying kingdoms early in the Third-age. While Arthedain retained its ancient ties to Gondor, Rhudaur fell under the sway of the Witch-king and Cardolan, the weakest of the three, frequently became a battleground for the opposing sides. Thus mercenaries thrived in such a situation, employed by both sides eager to improve their prospects of victory. While some mercenaries were soldiers of fortune, of dubious value, other such as this pikeman were organized into disciplined units with high morale.
This is the 158th release in the Gold Status Fellowship club and was January 2019's Winning idea. It was suggested by 'orc'. Measures 53mm from base to top of spear. There are 2 parts in this blister. The base is part of the figure.
I honestly don't know how imagined this figure a colleague who suggested it. I hope he's not disappointed. This pose is simply too good. And the facial expression.....priceless
This figure represents a nice study of a 'Ragger' who has possibly just returned to home or billet after an exhausting campaign. The pose is probably not going to appeal to those who would want to use the figure in an action setting, but as a stand-alone figure I think Chris Tubb has captured the tiredness of a seasoned soldier. The quality of casting I found to hold the detail well and assembly caused no issues.
