I'm a huge fan of the Clan Eshin rules for Skaven in the Storm of Chaos campaign. I don't like the Errantry War rules for Bretonnia however. Yeah, I'm a bit weird. In normal play my favorite armies are the height of chivalry and honor as well as teh bottomless pit of dirty tricks and backstabbing scum. I swear I have multiple personality junk going on here. []

It's all on the GW site, you just have to look around in their news section and forums. I play tau in 40k and I have a huge LotR army, including a mûmak. Also, the troll chieftan comes out at the same time - this Christmas.

Yaha! I have Guards of the Fountain Court!

Now all I need is time to paint them...

By the by, does anybody have any tips as how I can get the helmets to really shine? They are mithril, after all, yet my spider senses tell me that just mithril silver layered over black certainly won't cut it. Some Tin Bitz in between the two may do it, but is there any way to make it even better than that?

No idea. Guards of the fountain court are totally awesome, though. So are the Citadel guard and Knights of Dol Amroth. I flew into a rage at some guys who were making fun of the GotFC on the LotR movie pics thread. Check it out. (page 75 I think.)

The course was hard and really hot. The ground was so uneven in parts
it was like running through a corn field.

That is a good idea. My dad just started using ebay for non-LotR stuff a little while ago (a few months) and we have a whole cabinet of stuff from tons of armies, all painted and pretty darn cheap. Ebay is your friend.

I can never find anything cheap that I really want enough to go through all the trouble to order and wait for.

There are no elephants in LotR.

I come back to you now at the turn of the tide...

I WON BRONZE AT THE GOLDEN DEMON (youngbloods)!!!!!! PRINCE TYRION!!!!!!!

Ok...Mouth of Sauron is coming soon...I saw a picture on the GW website

Scouring of the Shire is coming out Jan.-Feb. 2005
Battle of Five Armies is coming out (it's going to be in a warmaster/epic 40k style)
pics are up at www.thelastalliance.com

Oh...and about the fountain guard...if you want them to be REALLY shiny, you can "polish"/scrape the pewter to get a very shiny/mirrored look

On my fountain guard, I painted them mithril/hint of blue mixed in. I noticed in the movie that they seemed to have bluish armor, maybe because the sky is reflected off of them since they're up so high guarding the fountain. I found that starting with a basecoat of 50/50 regal blue and mithril silver worked well, building up the mithril.

Awesome Erufailar! A Golden Demon! Even if it is youngbloods. I've seen pictures of some of those and they scare me with the amounts of skill involved. But then, from your painting tips you can tell you know what you're doing. []

Thanks, Mavis! The new White Dwarf with the Chicago results just came out (even though the event was in July...). You can also check out the stuff on the website. I'm just going to put a word in about the storm of chaos...

The Defeneders of Light won...by a lot I think. In ranking of the most wins (I don't think GW published the percentage of wins to losses), first came the Empire, then Chaos, Orks, and High Elves (my army...WOOt.). The High Elves won a surprising amount of wins, being the highest winning "secondary" army in the campaign. I think many would agree that high elves are one of the most neglected armies. In addition, the campaign list they published was VERY inferior. In total, the wins of the Sea Guard list made up for something like five percent of the total wins. So...yeah...

Yay for the high elves! Though I've always been a fan of the Bretonnians and the Skaven (I know, I know, I'm a walking oximoron [] ) I like the high elves as well.

Ah, i've painted up my Guards of the Fountain Court. They look decent (especially from afar [] ) and they only need a bit of touch-up now. It's not a professional job in the least, but I am quite happy with them. I'll have the hang of this painting thing yet.

Pretty much my album with finished minis, including 6 new pics

They include the LE High Elf Hero (which I won a painting competion with; I also think I could've picked up a gold at the demon with it...), Inquisitor Lord Coteaz, two inquisitorial henchmen, and a Grey Knight Terminator.

Hey! Welcome to MT! Sounds like you're pretty serious with the game. I've got 2 Merrys and one Pippin. I'd be glad to go for a transaction of some sort. The hobbits are from FotR, but one Merry is from RotK. I'm willing to get rid of the Shire hobbits as long as I can get Pippin in MT garb. PM me about it
