I have left out (yet again) the suggestion of the Willowman. The problem with this figure is not sculpting but moulding. I fear that to make it into sufficiently flat and viable pieces for the mould, you would require too many pieces and each too simplified to end up looking accurate and naturalistic. This should really be a one-off scratch-built item. ~ Chris Tubb.
Well thanks Chris for the clarification about the Willowman. Once again please remember to submit photos or sketches to support your idea.
This vote is quite short so don't delay in taking part. Its a blind vote so you will only see the result after you submit your vote.
Yes, I imagine also that broken horn, sword & shield are on Boromir's chest.
Here is a extract of J.R.R. Tolkien: The Lord of the Rings, Book 3, Chapter 1: The Departure of Boromir:
"Now they laid Boromir in the middle of the boat that was to bear him away. They grey hood and elven-cloak they folded and placed beneath his head. They combed his long dark hair and arrayed it upon his shoulders. The golden belt of Lórien gleamed about his waist. His helm they set beside him, and across his lap they laid the cloven horn and the hilts and shards of his sword; beneath his feet they put the swords of his enemies."
Head of Grond...Head of GROND!!! Not only a good idea but very amusing the way it was slipped in underneath my Stone Giant King. Good thing the king wears a heavy loincloth! I got a good laugh out of it, thanks David. ;D
