Today I received my own King Brand. I really love it ! The dwarf-mail, the helmet, the beard, the shield, the pose! Everything! I think he is an outstanding member of the fellowship range, like Thranduil, Helm Hammerhand or Halbarad. Of course, this is my very personal opinion. He is something (brand)new and this makes him fascinating for me. All my thoughts and fantasies are more than fullfilled. The dying dragon on the shield: perfect!
Now I really hope that we´ll see some warriors of Dale together with some of Mount Erebor´s dwarfs in a new M-series-range one day.
But there is one thing I am a little bit sad about . My very own miniature has got a casting fault: there´s a gap at the front of the mail-shirt´s edge ( . . . sniff !!!) and I didn´t recognize it before fixing the parts with glue . . .
Chances are that one mailclad dwarven warrior will make it to the final this time, though not our Bombur. If he looses... (Aule forbids) next month should see King Dain fighting in the BoFA instead of Bombur or Durin. He would make a gread addition to Brand.
