No Lord of the Rings collection is complete with out Elves. These are from Caesar Miniatures from their MiniKnight Fantasy collection. Like most plastic miniatures boxes, these figures come on identical sprus. Companies do this for efficiency reasons. The cost of plastic miniature molds is even higher than that of metal miniature molds. The downside of this is that when you have command figures as well, you end up with 3-4 extra figures of leaders, standard bearers and sometimes musicians.
The sculpting on this set is very good. The look and feel is that of old school elves with simple clothing and cloaks for rangers and limited torso armor for the High Elves. There is nothing over the top about any of these figures.
Below are pictures of all of the infantry possibilities and a final shot of 2 regiments of elves.
One common complaint about these figures is the large ears. It is true they are quite large but once painted up are hardly noticeable. The box says 35+ figures. I believe there were 4 of every figure in my box. There were enough figures for a 10 man melee unit, 4 other armored bowmen to add to the armored unit and a 12 rangers. The extra command and caster figures can be painted in different color schemes and can probably be reposed or used for parts for other conversions.
