Model UC1397 - Battle Axe of Gimli
Known primarily for their innate abilities to smith metal and stone, Dwarves are proud and strong-willed, ready for battle at a moment's notice. Like many Dwarves, Gimli, son of Gloin, favours the axe as his primary weapon. Accompanying his father to the Council of Elrond at Rivendell, Gimli is chosen to represent the Dwarves in the Fellowship of the Ring. After the Fellowship becomes separated, Gimli fights valiantly alongside Legolas and Aragorn from the Battle of Helms Deep to the Black Gates of Mordor. With his unshakable determination for success, he proves to be a valuable aid to the Fellowship. In Moria, after a cave-troll destroys the tomb of his forefather, Balin, Gimli is able to retrieve the mighty two-handed Battle Axe that had once belonged to the Dwarf-lord. From that point on, Gimli uses this Battle Axe for all close combat. Prepared for as many different situations as possible, he carries the Battle Axe with him, along with his Walking Axe, Bearded Axe, and two throwing axes. The massive head of this Battle Axe could be swung in both directions, making it a good choice for rapid moving combat. Dwarves of Middle-earth are short, but tough, with a strong but ancient sense of justice and an abiding love of all things beautiful. Typically, dwarves live for 250 years and are known primarily for their innate abilities to smith metal and stone. Gimli, a proud and strong-willed Dwarf, is a mighty warrior, quick to draw his axes in battle. He is the son of Gloin, and accompanied his father to the Council of Elrond at Rivendell, where he was chosen to represent the Dwarves in the Fellowship of the Ring. After the Fellowship became separated, Gimli fought valiantly alongside Legolas and Aragorn in the Battle of Helms Deep. With his unshakable determination for success, he proves a valuable aid to the Fellowship.
