"I have had to leave out the Easterling chariot as it would be too large for a Fellowship piece. Two horses , two riders and all the chariot components would make it quite a large kit. The Easterlings ARE coming and maybe the chariot could be done as part of a future regular release (box set), though I see the Easterling chariot as rather different from the British one shown in the illo. Similarly the Boar hunt vignette is also too large for a Fellowship release. Finally I have combined the Celebrimbor / Annatar suggestions into one as requested by several members." by Chris Tubb.
Thanks Chris for sorting out the suggestions, they are certainly creative and very impressive. After 2 years of suggestions we still see untapped potential flowing freely in this forum. You have 14 suggestions to vote for. Remember to consider the complexity and cost as part of the reason to vote for a piece. You can also comment on the suggestions, constructively, and discuss aspects of each of them.
I am sorry that some suggestions could not be added due to size, but it is better to state that now than disappoint later. As Chris has stated it could mean that they form part of a general release in the future. I know I certainly would enjoy seeing a chariot in Mithril's ranges. But it is a very complex suggestion and would have been the most expensive idea for members to purchase.
Remember that you can also submit images to the gallery area to suppory ideas too.
well i am always up for more nazgúl, but this time i vote for annatar in battle with celebrimbor.
but i like the idea of a realistic meeting between angmar and frodo without the slapstick taste the movie left (referring to the torch-throw and fleeting 'scream' creature). next time i will vote for that i guess.

Thank you, David . Sorted out. Too big. Well. I don´t know what I like better: having my suggestion being dismissed after 3/4 of a year or sorted out immediately !
But it´s better not to complain: it attracts negative thoughts and feelings to me as it seems. And on the other hand I had some success in the past: Gilraen was made, the Moria-Gate was a winner, Beorn and Bolg was mine in the origin and perhaps Brand and Dain (even mine at first) will follow?
So this time I will support my old suggestion: King Dain and King Brand in their last stand !
as the suggestions are so fantastic and the "fellows" have so many great ideas, I wished it would be possible that best of 3 suggestions could be designed by Chris and cast by MITHRIL. I am sorry, that this will not be possible, as Chris has only 2 hands and a day has 24 hours and Chris is not an Elf without necessity of sleep and MITHRIL would do a too expensive experiment.... But maybe the idea is worth a daydream .
Yes, Theobald, you are right, but we could do some training for stereo painting with both hands each finishing one figure- some kind of "higher speed painting". The figures could be glued onto a table and then let's go. The only problem left is a psycho-biological one: the binocular funktioning of our viewing system (you only can manage this by the use of the Marty Feldman- syndrome).
