Can anyone recommend a decent 25/28mm bear miniature? Preferably plastic/resin, but I can't find anything like it so I'm not holding my breath. GW Beorn looks a bit odd, and I want to avoid metal minis whenever possible.

If anyone knows where I could get something like that I'd be great! :D
I don't have any specifics, but have you looked for minis for cave bears?

Good call, found something called Acheson Creations, it an import from the US, but it just looks so cool:

Not sure what the relationship is between Games Workshop and Forge World but they're still producing Middle-earth figures, and expensive ones at that... The Nazgûl of Dol Guldur Collection:

Also available in packs of three; some of the figures I really like but £32 for three or £96 for all nine seems a lot for resin miniatures. Love the guy in the middle with the axe!

They've also done some Gundabad Ogres as well:

Look nice but, again, they seem expensive at £28 a pop. :shock:

Just shown off this weekend at Warhammer Fest (yes, there was Middle Earth stuff there too). Not sure the company making them or the price, but Knights of Dol Amroth:

And look at the wonderful Partial Plate they are wearing! ;)

Ha! That's the first thing I noticed.

Well I guess there's our proof...

For Gondorians/Dol Amroth knights I'd probably use Templars from Fireforge, if I wanted to go with chain mail look - possibly with headswaps, if I wanted some winged helms etc?
