Are the old Ral Partha sculpts in production by IWM or someone else? They used to have some classic elf cavalry types.

I would buy more of those if I could. I lost all my high elf lancers to lead rot some years back. They were beautiful and they never broke morale.

GW does the 'official' LOTR

I like the figures Tom Meier does. Thunderbolt Mountain miniatures are absolutely superb if pricey.

Maybe Tom Meier/Thunderbolt Mountain figs:

Slight builds, very fine detail, excellent figs.

@dsfrank: True, but they don't make any cavalry units. Just a few mounted heroes.

@Bashtubybits: Thanks, those are lovely. I think a unit of 20 mounted for $97 USD is actually reasonable considering Black Tree are $8 USD/each!

@saltflats: Those are nice.

Anyone know how many come in a pack from Old Glory? The pic shows two and the price is $13 USD, but I'm guessing the packs contain what? Six? Eight?

Two per pack from Old Glory, if you are looking at their Ghost fantasy range. The Infantry is six per pack, the cavalry is two per pack.

I'm looking for 25/28mm…

Black tree is having 50% off sale at the moment(even though it looks like they are showing up at 40%- you have to email them which is right).

I know you are, I just was helping dragon6.
I have some of the old glory Ghost fantasy miniatures and all the cavalry come 2 to a pack. The infantry are 6 figures. Some of the larger infantry like trolls come 2 or 3 to a pack. The figures are nice, not sure how well they fit alongside Perry LOTR though.

Extra Crispy, GW does make cavalry:

The Thunderbolt Mountain stuff is so beautiful. I might have done that if I'd started there.

Thanks Andy! Don't know why I couldn't find them?

Andy Skinner Supporting Member of TMP01 Sep 2017 5:17 a.m. PST

They put them in the Hobbit section.

Actually, finding figures on their site now, for whatever game, seems much more complicated than it used to be. I don't use their Warhammer figures, but I still look at them sometimes, and finding things now that they've re-organized who is who is really difficult. I used to be able to click High Elves and find them all. Now I have to guess, because I don't know the names.

I do use the LotR figures, but having the Hobbit figures does make me wonder if I've missed something sometime.

And I still have to paint my elf cavalry. They intimidate me.
