Yes, trying to paint those figures will send you to the eye doctor. I'm a poor excuse for a painter unless it involves full-size vehicles or houses- so that's really the problem but they can look...

I've heard that PJ has changed the look of Shelob to a caterpillar that pupates into a an angry, evil moth/butterfly that torments Frodo and Sam. The Hobbits realize that the Phial of Galadriel is...

The elves may be less intellectually gifted than we thought if they put their trust in the same "guard" more than once.

Interesting post Lush, although Tolkien may not be held in high regard by " scholars" it dose not really matter in the end. I'm quite sure Tolkien will be still in print long after our bones are...

Depending on how big you are Baran, a longbow may be too large for you to start with. A traditional English longbow was between 67 and 78 inches in length and had a draw weight between 80 and 120...

It would seem appropriate that there would be limitations on the ultimate power of the elves, for no other reason than to prevent one from attempting to "usurp" the power of the Valar. The Eldar,...

Since Smeagol originally dwelt on the banks of the Great River before he was corrupted by the ring, it is probable that he became learned in the skills of boat-making. It would not be hard for him to...

Rather than Gandalf falling in Moria with the Balrog, he would have been captured and encased in carbonite. Then fellowship would then have to detour to Mordor to sneak in and rescue him(it's at this...

I wonder how many actors will want to be in Thorin's company? It's now well known what a horrible time JRD had with the make-up. But then again, money talks.

I had a friend ask me if athelas is a real plant, or a plant just invented by Tolkien. Searching the forum, the question seems to have left unanswered so I'll dredge up this old topic again to see if...

I think a nice war-hammer would do the trick. There is much less chance of a hammer getting lodged in the body, so weapon retention would be less of a concern. Most also had a spike on the weapon to...

You're right about the "wainriders'- in UT they are reffered to as war-chariots and cavalry, so I guess it's a general term used to describe mounted warriors(of the enemy). Also in UT it describes...
