  • Somewhere in the Mines of Moria soection of The Fellowship of the Ring (Fot R), Gandalfs hat is peirced with a Goblin arrow which "stuck there like a black feather". I decided to see what Gandalf model would look like if this hapenned. This model will still be playable when you have done this, you dont need to store it in mint condition I can't get any pictures because I haven't done this (yet) so if somehat boldy goes where no Gandalf's hat has gone before, maybe they can get some pictures along the way?


    • Gandalf the Grey (Preferably Fellowship Model)
    • Rohirrim Archer with arrow nocked.
    • Modelling Knife
    • Glue of your choice (Recomended - Plastic Cement / Super Glue)
    • A steady hand


    • Assemble Gandalf the Grey. Take Rohan Archer with arrow nocked, and cleany slice the arrow form his hand and bow using your modelling knife and steady hand.
    • Cut half of the Arrow point (Metal bit) off with modelling knife and steady hand (to make it look like the arrow is in Gandalfs hat.
    • Use the glue of your choice (preferably plactic cement or super glue) to glue the arrow onto Gandalf's hat at a good angle (you may need to use some green stuff here if you cant get a good position)
    • Walaa! Your model is ready to paint - Your archer looks like he has just fired his arrow, and Gandlaf has an arrow in his hat!

    Also, you may want to put a bit of clay, green stuff, use a knife, or just paint the end of the arrow like a feather (black). This perhaps make's it more like the book.


    If someone does this conversion before I do, could they please take some pictures and put them here?


    Some Comments would be highly appreciated.

    Sounds pretty cool, I don't have Gandalf the Grey and I don't plan to so I don't think i'll be doing this conversion.

    Eheh, I may be doing it when I get Gandalf in Bgi ME ish 12, maybe, maybe not.

    Well, this one made me a bit speechless

    Well, it's original


    A bit too comical for my collection.


    I have the Fellowship of the Ring Gandalf, but I would probably screw up doing this conversio, and also my gandalf is already painted, so I don't think I'll be doing this one. Good idea though. By the way Neix J, the issue 12 Gandalf is the Khazad Dum model and as such is not wearing a hat.

    -Lord Aragorn Elessar671
    Yeh, I noticed... Maybe this one will never get done :-p... But I dont mind!

    I really want to see this gandalf mini soon

    Crazy Canuck

    Could we have a picture of the model please. It would be interesting to see how it looks

    King Elessarlp

    You have a seriously twisted mind. i mean, who would want to hurt poor old gandalf

    Mr Mclukus

    i think it sounds quite cool but i may do it with the new plastic gandalf. great idea
