Gwaihir Found, Alive and Well.

Whilst trawling amazon I came across this eagle model from a company called Plastoy. I had already collected several eagles from Schleich which were perfect for 28mm gaming, but I was wanting something a little special for the Wind lord himself.
 There was no scale on the photo on the site so I had to take a chance and ordered one, to my delight it turned out to be slightly larger than the Schleich models and with a better wing silhouette. Perfect for a leader of the Great eagles.

I have keep an eye open for years for good eagles of this scale, Schleich have just up dated their model (the one with the wings tucked in), the other one now is off the shelves. Still this gives me a little bit of variety in the units. I did try to bend the wings of the first one in warm water but they didn't set and just sprung back over time. So having these new versions is a very welcome thing.

 So, if you are looking for a cheaper option on giant, orc killing, wind soaring, troll scaring eagle, Amazon is a very good place to start your quest.
