Really good.

I'll copy this.  ;D



I would love to see your Gondorians.
I am working on Rohan too.

A gondorian. In fact he is customized while our discourse was more about what ready made middle earth people geobra is or will be offering.  ::)

Nevertheless:  ;D
I still think that this helmet is the most appropriate.

- legs, torso, belt and sword: the orc from fi?ures 2
- arm armour, facial hair, and shield: http://playmodb.org/cgi-bin/showinv.pl?setnum=5886
- lance: from http://playmodb.org/cgi-bin/showinv.pl?setnum=5911

- helmet: e.g. from http://playmodb.org/cgi-bin/showinv.pl?setnum=7772

- Arms, head, and hair: from some old knight

Very nice! :)
Your figure is quite close to the real Gondorian infantry, especially the legs.

I think the new series 2 figs might be great for Orcs and Men. ;D
But I think the Roman tower shields, or the Egyptian shields might be a better fit.
And your original helmet idea seems closer...

Also, I stumbled across this while looking at some shield designs...
Talk about ready made middle earth pieces.

The one here has such a nice white tree design. ;)

And your original helmet idea seems closer...
As to the shape I think it is alright although being a bit flattened. The other with horse hair I would take for rohan. I'll bring along a picture of that combination later. :)

That is true, it does look nice. :)
I would try to remove the eye though.

I cannot wait to see your other figures!

this might be put on the upcoming dwarf. I find it misshaped but for a dwarf it might work, esp if we want to avoid using the same helmet type on different middle earth people.

The dragon helm does look very elvish.
I think if they have it in gold (or black) that would be great for an elvish faction. 8)

Also, I like your idea for the dwarven helm.
It seems to fit nicely with that theme.

As for giving all factions of middle earth different helms,
I don't think that is strictly necessary.
There seems to be a bit of mixing with arms and armor in the stories and the movies.
Plus Rohan uses the ocular helms the most.

Thank you very much.  :)

I am personally with the orcs.  They are not as evil as it seems. ;) Read the true story of the last ringbearer here. There is an english translation.

Something useful for the red hair of the blister pyrate. I do not claim that this is my idea or that not someone somewhere had it long before me. :-\
