Just a little update from Forge World this week, figuratively and literally and ... pun-ily? Anyway, they are taking orders for their new Sharriffs of the Shire set. Need to keep your hobbits in line? These two are the ones to make sure that it stays so. No adventure. No excitement. Maybe a giant pumpkin.
From the website:
Holfoot Bracegirdle has been a member of the Shirriffs for a good many years, and during his time has risen to the post of Shirriff-leader. Though it is his duty to oversee peace in the Shire, Holfoot, and most other Shirriffs for that matter, never expected to have to fight.
Affectionately known as 'Cock-Robin' to his friends due to his easily influenced nature, Robin Smallburrow was one of the Shirriff's of the Shire. Under the rule of the Chief, Robin and the Shirriffs were forced to arrest their friends, spy on well-to-do Hobbits, and generally enforce the newly implemented rules. The return of the Travellers helped Robin remember why he became a Shirriff, and he joined them in fighting back against their oppressors.
Holfoot Bracegirdle and Robin Smallburrow may not be the bravest (and definitely among the smallest) inhabitants of Middle-earth but they both have a crucial part to play in the events of the Scouring of the Shire. They make great additions to a Hobbit collections, and both feature in the Narrative play scenarios found in the Scouring of the Shire supplement.
The set includes the following resin miniatures:
1x Holfoot Bracegirdle
1x Robin Smallburrow
The rules for these Heroes can be found in The Scouring of the Shire.
