RP No149 LotR - Gandalf & Saruman



What? More Fantasy figures???

Like the previous Lord of the Rings Sauron figure, these have been sitting unloved and forgotten at the very bottom of my leadpile. Not really sure when I bought them, but it must be at least 10 years ago if not more??
Along with some other figures this was my entry into Curt's Challenge on the 7th January.

There's no prizes for guessing that these are the Games Workshop figures for Gandalf the Grey and 
Saruman the White. 
If I'm gonna be honest, painted up very quickly! 
My nose was beginning to bleed!?!?!?

  19. Love 'em! I want to yell "You shall not pass" at my boss all the time so the Gandalf fig has the potential to get me in trouble. Is there some LotR gaming in your future?
