I see the victorious Gandalf standing over a decimated Balrog. His pale shoulders and limbs are clearly visible beneath a tattered robe. As Tolwen suggested, perhaps the wizard holds Glamdring in his hand, lowered and barely able to grasp it. The sword's point may be on the ground, but not looking like it's acting as a crutch, but on the verge of falling out of his weakened hand. By contrast, the demon is more leftover ash than flesh. Perhaps the suggestion of a broken wing or clawed hand protrudes outwards from its shadowy remains. Not too difficult to fabricate and could make for a serious diorama!
2 votes! YEEEAH! I can feel the momentum building!

clear enough for me this time -
sorry not another Gandalf, although I'm very found of this character and not another orc
time for a noble man, but weak and with a very sad story
(and whose cinematic adaption is not the right view as he is described in the novel, just because moviemakers need another "bad guy" and there is very few explanation of the background of a stewards life, and even a noble horse is used to knock him in the fire, pity!)
If he will win I hope there will also be the Palantir of Minas Tirith, which drove this poor man in black despair and madness
Well, I am deeply humbled that my suggestion has made it through the next round as the winner! I always liked Denethor and was saddened by his hubris in hiding and then using the Palantir of Gondor. His deep love for Boromer and the supposed failures of Faramir that had caused his Father's distrust and withdrawal of love- as it was Faramir who should have been sent to Elrond- is shown to be a lie when he finds Faramir seemingly fatally wounded. His mind cracked by Sauron, burning themselves alive as did those ancient "Southern Kings," was, to Denethor, an act of love. It is his agonized failure to do this that I see depicted on Denethor's face, not the pain of the fire. I already have a few big Orcs, but would love a Denethor! May the best woman or man win! (Right ddaines?!)
barliman: Is a shoutbox anything like a swearbox? I mean, do I have to cough up money whenever I use the words "Games Workshop"?

Gildor: I think this shoutbox is a chatbox, it allows for those who are connected on the forum at the same time to chat in real time (provided they read the shoutbox)...

jami: Hello. I'm new here and I would like to know how I can take part in that new opportunity to get my face sculpted to a miniature? It says in email that I must tell my username to Michael O'Brien. It's jami

Michael O'Brien: Hi Jami, Are you a fellowship member? I don't see you on our accounts. If you are not then copy and paste this link: http://www.mithril.ie/PBSCCatalog.asp?CatID=1914170&BrandID=167465

linherdir: Hello all. I'm Jami . That other account (named jami) is my old account and I had forgotten that I had this new one (which is the one with fellowship membership). Sorry for the confusion, I was pretty lost myself since I haven't been very active till now

Michael O'Brien: Hi Linherdir, you should be able to access the thread and post your idea there.

rohangrl: Sigh, I have used a boringly real avatar to keep it simple- hope it's ok. I wanted to use colour but it came out wonky, my strawberry blonde hair looks purple.

Michael O'Brien: There is nothing wrong with a real photo. I used one for years, I only used a cartoon for the novelty of the new designer avatar option to show people what they could do.

tolwen: Wasn't there a tie between Tobold, Golasgil and Vorondil? At least that's what I saw the result and re-casting the vote was not possible anymore. Now Golasgil has one vote more. Was there a technical issue or something else?

Thingol: I'm satisfied with result of this voting... and hidden voting is fine for me... it reduces the possibility of even a small impact on lobbying in the last minute of voting. That can not happen to someone lobbying for a non-canonical figures.

Michael O'Brien: "Was there a technical issue or something else?" No, as the rules state, if a tie exists, Chris tells me who will win and I add one more vote to break the tie. Chris is the sculptor and has the final say. If no tie exists then he keeps out of it.[br]

maenas: Just wanting to say hello! Uncontable years passed since last time, thought I have been reading Michael's newsletter almost every month I did not come over the forum for a long, long time. Is nice to meet you all here again.
