Anne, between 2-4 in. tall. I've found some one ebay, but I don't want to pay a fortune for them ! Some are pretty expensive.

I visit thrift shops all the time and sometimes see the figurines .. you might also check out the toys and the Dollar Tree - I'll do the same.

Anne that would be great. I've checked the Dollar store several times. Nothing in the way of LOTR "type" figures. I've been checking the thrift shops when I get a chance to get by one. There's only one sorta near by tho.

Oh...let me know when you want me to send you those Ruellia Ragin Cajun cuttings.

I will, but probably not for a month or so .. I need to get everything moved and at least a semblance of settled before I take on anything new.

Yeah I've checked Wal-mart ever since last fall when I started to plan out this one. It's a 2 x 2 table garden. Here's a pic from last fall
I haven't really added much...........LOL... I'd like to start laying out the rock walls, plants etc, but really did want to find the Elven archers/warriors first

Also, if you have a Michael's store near you I would try it. They have clear plastic tubes full of figures. They always keep farm animals, dinosaurs and sea creatures. After a popular movie opens you can sometimes find a tube of characters from the movie. I found figurines of pirates after the 'Pirates of the Caribbean' movies came out to add to a miniature waterfront village and after the new 'Star Trek' movie came out one of my grandkids got a lot of trekkie like characters there. good luck.
I love my garden.... and Jesus, and coffee, and naps.......

Good idea, I found my unicorn at Michaels for the fairy garden and a few forest animals.

Thanks for the links...The unpainted ones on Reaper miniatures are more in the price range, but I am SOOOOOOO not good at painting. LOL.

No Micheals close by, I looked on line.

Checked the $ Store yesterday...they didn't have anything. Was at the farmers market too, found some things but they were either way too tall or too short. Needs to be about 3 in. tall or so. I'll keep looking something will turn up eventually.

I appreciate everyone's input ! Thank You! Thank You! Thank You!

There are nine stores within 25 miles of my zip code that carry Reaper miniatures. Who knew? I can check out one to two, if you like. I don't see sizes listed on the figurines online.

Sandi, I went back and checked the store locator. I have exactly "Zero" within 25 miles.

IF you happen to be close to one, as in your going that way anyway, maybe stop and take a look at them.

The Archer figures aren't critical at the moment as they will be the last item placed .

Thanks All for you help. If you have any kids (young or old) who have out grown their LOTR figures let me know. Thank You!
