A soldier of Rohan in King Théoden’s royal guard, Gamling was sworn to protect the throne, but the loyal warrior’s allegiances were tested when Gandalf the White and his companions came to Edoras to seek audience with the king. Ailing and in the sway of Gríma Wormtongue, Théoden was not himself.
When Wormtongue’s men drew blades against the guests and the Wizard advanced upon the undefended king, Gamling was moved to intervene, but his sword was stayed by fellow guard Háma, who perceived Gandalf’s true intentions. Thanks to the Wizard’s help, Théoden and the land of Rohan were both freed from the corrupt counselor’s grip.
With new purpose, King Théoden rallied the Rohirrim and led them to Helm’s Deep, a mighty fortress of stone built into the White Mountains. Gamling rode with his king and fought ever at his side, surviving both the perilous journey to the Deep and the fearsome siege brought against them there by the fallen Wizard Saruman.
Choosing a sculpting medium is much like choosing the right club in golf. It's a very personal choice. Sculpting collectibles, though, is not a game of golf - it is a marathon.
When Théoden mustered the Rohirrim to ride to the aide of Gondor, Gamling was again at his side, resolute and fighting on. Gamling’s horn sounded to herald the charge of the Rohirrim at the Battle of the Pelennor. Though fear traced its lines across his leathered features, he stood firm, never wavering. Even in the face of overwhelming doom, such as when the mighty Mûmakil charged, or despair when his lord was cut down, the son of the plains held to his duty, courage in his heart and fire in his eyes.
Gamling is brought to you by sculptor Gary Hunt, an accomplished artist who is one of Wētā Workshop's longest-serving crew members, being part of the original Lord of the Rings crew.
