Shadow & Flame are a sculpting and painting service that do a lot of commission work for people surrounding The Lord of the Rings. One of their latest sculpts really caught my eye. See what you think of Thorongil…
Thorongil was the name that Aragorn used when he was younger to fight alongside the lords of Rohan and Gondor. As you can see Shadow & Flame have done some great work bringing this miniature to life and tying it into the aesthetic for the Rohirrim that the films went for.
The facial details are also recognisably Aragorn and I could certainly see this being a younger version of him. Of course these kind of sculpts aren’t going to be on sale but if you’re interested in getting a conversion sculpted up then these guys have some serious skills.
Interestingly Games Workshop DID make a model for Thorongil (here also painted by Shadow & Flame)…
I think that they’ve done a great job of keeping it in line with the design, as mentioned above, and this could be the kind of the thing that we could see from the new Middle-Earth studio from Games Workshop.
What do you think?
