"Thank you once again for this interesting selection of ideas. The only suggestion that I have omitted for the present is the vignette of the mounted Aragorn and Gandalf at the black gate. Two mounted figures are a little too large for my current schedule. There is a distinct HOBBIT feel, running through this month’s submissions with Dain and Brand , the sleeping Bombur and Gandalf with the great Goblin. I very much enjoy re-visiting old themes ( as this years Christmas gift will show) so the great Goblin would be interesting to make in a more active stance. So for that matter would be the mounted female ranger ( M16 on horseback )and the trumpeting Ent a subject which I have not made for many a long year." by Chris Tubb. I think all our fans will be satisfied at the list of 15 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 November 23rd at 16.00 GMT. Vote for your favourite. On the 23rd I will start a second vote on the 3 or 4 most popular suggestions. This will allow you to vote again to decide on the final winner. Remember you can always resubmit an idea another month to try again.
I went for the West Gate of Moria for purely selfish reasons in that it would save me the headache of trying to do it myself, plus it is such an unusual suggestion.
I was surprised Lossie wasn't suggested; I missed the first round suggestions as I was away for two weeks preceded by a major broadband failure and no internet access, otherwise I might have made a suggestion.
Anyhow, it's good to be back and the suggestions this month have been really good.
