"The HOBBIT" (3) - BARD of Lake-Town - (MITHRIL M235)


BARD of Lake-Town  - BARD de Lac-Ville

Another MITHRIL figure for one of the characters of the book "The Hobbit" !
(I insist: nothing to see with the movie, that I didn't see yet....)
Like always I've felt completely free about the colours!
Une autre figure MITHRIL pour l'un des personnages du livre "The Hobbit"!
(J'insiste: rien à voir avec le film, que je n'ai pas encore vu ....)
Comme toujours, je me suis senti complètement libre sur les couleurs!




<< Their captain was Bard, grim-voiced and grim-faced, whose friends had accused him of prophesying floods and poisoned fish, though they knew his worth and courage. He was a descendant in long line of Girion, Lord of Dale, whose wife and child has escaped down the Running River from the ruin long ago.

Le capitaine en était Bard, à la voix et au visage sévères, que ses amis avaient accusé de prophétiser les inondations et l'empoisonnement des poisons, bien qu'ils connussent sa valeur et son courage. Il descendait en longue ligne de Girion, Seigneur de Dale, dont la femme et l'enfant avaient échappé à la ruine il y avait bien longtemps, par la Rivière Courante.
J.R.R.Tolkien, Bilbo the Hobbit / Bilbo le Hobbit, Chap. 14 >>

  1. Tiens, celui-là je l'ai aussi, peint dans les mêmes tons bleu, ocre jaune et marron, mais moins sombre. Ta version colle plus au personnage du Hobbit d'un soldat assez désespéré.
    Un très joli travail de peinture qui rend hommage aux détails de la sculpture.

      it's a very good figure and, like I say above (in french), he's very expressive and dynamic.

    1. Thanks Dez,.... but don't forget: he's Bard, not Luke Evans who is "just" an actor!
      (and P.J. is NOT Tolkien!)

  7. Wow he is most increadible... Bard was a hero figure that stoll my imagination when I first heard the story read to me by my dad... though by the time I read the story myself I was less overawed and just saw him as a great man.

      Bard is the perfect hero for young kids ("The Hobbit" was wrote for Tolkien's children!)

      3 versions exist but one is a 2009 release, so you can have the M132 "Bard of Esgaroth" or this one...
      if you have the M132, it's a good thing: rare!
