I think you mean "Let them come! There's one dwarf from Moria who still draws breath."

It works better on a '300' model.

Love this Gimli Tim, you did a wonderful job on him. There is some controversy on some of the LOTR boards on the chain mail. Can you tell us what reverences you worked from to make it true to what we have seen on the screen?

Can you put up you unpainted version images too. They really show off the super detail you put in this piece.

Love this piece Tim, you did a fantastic job on the little guy. There seems to be some controversy on the chain mail on some LOTR boards. Can you tell us were you given a reference to how it should look to make it true to what we saw on screen?

Wonderful stuff! As usual you pay a lot of attention to detail, but I think you out did yourself on this one! Obviously the dead orc at the bottom tried one too many dwarf tossing jokes ;)
