I play WH40K, Dark Angels or Praedicators (my own Space-Marines chapter)

The only set from the LotR game I have is the 'Gandalf vs.the Balrog' box which I used to create a diorama based on the fight in Moria.

There's one thing that changes from the usual representation of it: I couldn't manage to create a 'bottomless pit' thus decided on making the fight having place above a lake of lava... I used a self painted and texturized glass to do the lava) and put a bulb [] under it... Now I've got a self-made 'LotR Lamp' []

I play High Elves in Warhammer (somewhere between 2000-3000 pts.) and LOTR. I'm also starting Demon Hunters in 40k. I just have a squad of Grey Knight Space Marines, the codex, and a squad of Grey Knight Terminators (which I won in a Grey Knight painting competition at a GW store). I also think that the Balrog being able to school Sauron that easily is very absurd.

I play the LOTR game, though I have no one to play it with yet. I have been concentrating on getting my miniatures assembled and painted. So far they consist of 36 Warriors of Minas Tirith, and I am hoping to get a captain and standard bearer for them soon.
Also, a Games Workshop store just opened in my local amll, which is a huge help. Eventually I hope expand this force to include some of the mounted Knights of MT.

Just today I have finished building my Minas Tirith to make a Pelannor scene with. I built it on my own interpretation so its a bit different from the film version. It's about 3 foot high and took me a whole age of men to build but it is now finished. I only need to add a few finale paint details and I will be ready to put it onto my gaming board that is specially made for the Pelannor. It is a five foot square with mountains in one corner(I'm going to put the city there) and in the opposite corner I have part of Osgiliath. I am very proud of my achievments especially Osgiliath because that just looks brilliant, but when it is completely finished I shall post some pictures if anyone wants to see them. My army of Sauron is made up of orcs from the LoTRs game but mainly of the orcs from warhammer (As that was my army before the LoTRs game came out and is quite big), I don't have any Southrons or Easterlings yet so I am going to use soldiers of the Empire from warhammer. Does anyone know if you can buy the Mamukil yet? Or if not are they going to bring them out? If not I'll just have to buy some elephants from a toy shop and work on them or somthing. I don't need to worry about buying a Gronde because I have already made one out of wood from my back garden. I am going to use Knights of Britonnia for my Knights of Dol Amroth since they weren't in the film and I am working by the book. I am going to GW tomorrow to buy the Witchking and some more soldiers of Gondor and maybe some more Orcs. So once my scene is complete, I shall post some pictures on this thread if anyone wants to look at them.

I play Bretonia in WH, and I only paint the figures about TLOTR, does any of you know the collection "Mithril"?, it is from quite a long time ago, but they were really nice miniatures, too.

Edit: Crate, that sounds really good, why don't you hung some photos?

Durthdil, can you explain what you mean by hung? If you mean like post some photos then I will once I have the scene of the battle done. Or I might set up a scene when the soldiers arive at Minas Tirith, like from Dol Amroth and the other places. I'm going to make up some before, during and after the battle scenes, then once it's finished I'll take some pictures and post them up. I managed to get to GW today and I bought 5 more boxes of Mordor Orcs, the 24 pack ones, 2 boxes of warriors of MT and the RoTK bowed set. I also went to another modelling shop where I get all my scenery from, and I have bought some more modling clay because I had ran out.

Does anyone know about the Mamukil? I really need to know.

Oh and I forgot to say in my other post I was given a model pirate ship for christmas so I am going to work on that and make it into a ship from Umbar. Give it black sails and such. It's a brilliant ship, the scale with my LoTRs models is different but not by much so I can get away with it.

Now I have to think of an army to use for the Corsairs themselves. Anyone got any ideas for them I would gladdly appreciate them. I did think about using the Dark Elves, but I think they are too neat for the Corsairs of Umbar. I am going to paint all my Empire soldiers faces dark brown so I can use them for the Haradrim (sp?).

Edit: GONDERVONDER, I guess from your post that you don't like wargames such as Warhammer or the LoTRs, but they're really not bad. I myself don't play them all the time because I prefer to just make scenes but I do have the ocasional battle and they are really fun. As for ruining the minds of youths, well before I found this type of gaming my mind was already ruined but thats just genetic, plus, it's not just youths minds they ruin! The people who play these games can age from around 11 maybe to about (well I have played a person this age before so I know) 73, it's a brilliant way to keep your mind active and it's a hobbie. What are your hobbies? That would be nice to know.

That's cool, my friend’s dad and I made a big battle scene of Stalingrad, and it was mint. We made buildings out of shoe boxes (It was a good job his daughter bought a new pair of shoes like EVERY week or else we would still be making it now with insufficient shoe boxes!) and we used Tamiya models of the 1:35th scale for the soldiers and tanks and stuff. It was really cool we made it up in his loft/attic and it covered the whole floor! We had loads of different scenes around the city, like in one point we had a couple of guys fighting with there hands with one knife between them, and in another bit we had it being bombed by seven Stuka dive bombers. We hung them from the ceiling with bits of string on every tip so they didn't move much. I remember one of them had been hit by AA fire and its left wing was snapped off, the only reason for that is because his youngest son decided to throw it down the stairs and it smashed so we just added it into the scene. Another scene we had was like that off the film "Enemy at the Gates", I don't know if you have seen it or not, but there is a bit when the Soviet soldiers just charge up a street and they all get cut to pieces by German machine gun fire. We even made little puddles of blood with glass and red paint. For the smoke we just used cotton wool and spray painted it grey. If you want to make bullet holes in scenery, use a pin to gouge them into it, that way is cheaper than buying a proper drill for the job.

I don't know very much about the Spanish Civil War. I am studying the Soviet Union at the moment but once I have finished that I might buy some books about the SCW, and then who knows, I might make a SCW scene myself.

Well, i'm new to this whole hobby, but I am enjoying it immensely so far, even with the little that I have done. Crate's description of his work has inspired me to go do bigger and better things, so i'm off to look for shoe boxes! []

Acctually shoe boxes don't just make Stalingrad, no, you can use them for MT aswell, that's what I did. A combination of shoe boxes, card board boxes, polistireen and a bit wood here and there makes up my MT and Osgilieth. I feel my day is complete knowing that I have inspired you into modeling.

Oh well that's it from me tonight, I got a lovely lady calling my name so I'm off to bed.

Nighty Night.

Gamling, could you possibly change your name into spaces? I find it disturbing for some odd reason.
