Elves of Mirkwood

This represents an army from the Middle Earth as envisioned by J.R.R. Tolkien.

King Thranduil's realm in Northern Mirkwood was established sometime early in the Second Age. Sindar were Grey Elves, and were counted amongst the Eldar despite the fact they had never been to the Blessed Realm. The Silvan Elves, or Avari, were known as Wood Elves, and were not of the Eldar.

Thranduil's realm enjoyed peace for much of the Second and Third Ages, despite occasional attacks by giant spiders, Orcs and a war with the Dwarves (of Erebor?). Thranduil led the Elvish forces at the Battle of the Five Armies and successfully repulsed attacks on Northern Mirkwood by the Army of Dol Guldur during the War of the Ring.
