THIS VOTE IS OVER. SECOND ROUND STARTED 23rd until the 28th. The grim spirit of Helm Hammerhand certainly seems to be pervading the forum this month doubtless helped by Presto' s inspiring and atmospheric vision of how the figure should appear. I left out Ori, as all the Dwarves from the Hobbit are planned for a future Mithril release, though I have included the Dwarven flautist which would make an interesting single figure. The guardians of Lorien could also make a good vignette but have to be left out this month in favour of the single figures. Erestor is an unusual choice but one whose "gravitas" and bearing offers potential, but having said that, the ninth king of Rohan looks like a hard act to follow. Chris Tubb.
I think all our fans will be satisfied at the list of 13 options to vote for. Remember one vote per member for this round of voting. You can add your personal comment why you voted for that option as well. Vote ends Feb 23rd. Vote for your favourite. On the 23rd I will start a second vote on the 4 or 5 most popular suggestions. This will allow you to vote again to decide on the final winner. That vote ends Feb 28th. Remember you can always resubmit an idea another month to try again. Next month is open to all types of suggestions. We will start taking suggestions on the 2nd of March.
Although there are only 13 entries, they are all excellent selections and any of them would be great. I knew when I first read presto's idea for Helm that I would vote for him, but Erestor, the Snow Troll, and Glorfindel all deserve to be produced at some point.
I voted Helm Hammerhand. Not very surprising decision, don´t you think so? But I have to strengthen the faithfulness of Peter Fey: keep your faith, I guess you´ll be grated for! 10 years waiting! Oh, man: what a patience! I do miss some personalities, too. So I feel liable!
Greetings to Finland! I´ve got relatives there! On Aland-Islands!
