placing my vote, Variag foot archer is the best option, IMHO. There is only other Variag in all Mithril range.
By the way, this is my first poll vote, I'm newbie in this forum. Hello to everybody, this is a great fan community. I except to contribute a few! I'm a long - time collector from Spain that have come back to Mithril collection after some time out of it. It's great to be back
I see the Variag mini as a relaxed warrior, slowly marching in the greath plain of Khand with the short bow and the caracteristic squared shield firmly tied on his back and the sword drawn in his right hand, ready to repel the attack of any large and ferocious animal of the steppe.
A subject interesting not only for a "static" collector, making excellent piece for a diorama, but also usefull for a more "dinamic" use as an oriental PC or NPC caracter in RPG game.
My dear, dear Mauhur, it seems that Ugluk and his band have run into some rather inhospitable Rohirrim. Take a detachment of your best fighters, go to Fangorn Forest, sort through the confusion, and bring back the haflings...alive. Tell them that bed and breakfast will be served in Isengard! AROOOOOO!!! What are you waiting for! GO NOW!
I wish you luck Mauhur!
Hey Tom, if you're reading this, the wooden paddle was for stirring the lye soap to keep the chains clean! What were you thinking? LOL.
Well, I have suggested two times that Easterling mounted archer to be instructed that a range of Easterlings already do exist! ( The question is: where? ) So anyway, let´s call him: Variag. And because it is no mounted month, let´s give that foot-archer a chance. Seems, that Fulvio shares my passion about "Easterlings" . . . and yes: Variags are Easterlings, too . . .
The description of the Variag is excellent. I even like the name "VARIAG". Very strong. I would gladly support him, if not for Mauhur.
Mauhur has been suggested several times in the past and is one of the few orcs mentioned in some detail who actually had a significant purpose. As Ugluk and Grishnakh already exist, it's time the name Mauhur is added to the short list of notorious orcs by Mithril.
