Wise though his years had made him, Thranduil was also proud and as stubborn as any Dwarf. It was not in his nature to back down before Thorin’s bluster, and he would spill blood if need be to achieve that which he craved. Armed with long, curved swords, tall shields and mighty bows, the soldiers of the Woodland Realm were a formidable force. Unnumbered years of training, innate Elven grace, and the keen sight of immortals made them deadly warriors.
But on this day the enemy would not be Dwarves, for while they traded insults with the defenders of Erebor a new army snuck upon them. Erupting from the ground, a vast horde of Orcs and other fell things spewed onto the field of battle. Elves and Dwarves cast aside their quarrel, and reforming their lines as a united force the warriors of Mirkwood stood alongside their bearded former rivals. Together they fought as one against the terrors of Azog the Defiler.
The latest in the1:6 scale line, the Mirkwood Elf Soldier is designed to accompany the Dwarf Soldiers of the Iron Hills. Although available as standalone statues, it is recommended displaying them as one dynamic scene, straight out of The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies.
