1980s Citadel Lord of the Rings / White Dwarf Index

During the 80s Citadel Miniatures obtained the license to produce Lord of the Rings (and The Hobbit), Games Workshops house magazine White Dwarf featured many of the figures, either in standard advertising slots or in the regular miniatures column "Tabletop Heroes" by Joe Dever and Gary Chalk (of Lone Wolf fame). Here is a complete list of images from those magazines. Where known, the painters name is in brackets.
