Welcome back after the Christmas break. I certainly enjoyed the time off. As you may be aware we are combining BOTH December and January months together this month due to my time away. So you can vote for TWO suggestions. This is a blind vote so you will only see the results after you have submitted your votes. Please vote early as you only have until the 16th to vote. Vote ends at 16.00 GMT. You can also comment on other suggestions if you wish to discuss their validity.
Chris left out Daeron as he is from the Silmarillion and thus falls outside our license. Sorry about that but the decision is final.
Bummer about Daeron, good thing he didn't make it last time if it might have caused problems. Guess next time I'll have to submit something a little more generic. Still, there are many excellent choices here and i'm sure we will see two excellent pieces.
As usual, at least 20 suggestions who SHOULD make it and only 2 who CAN. If only we would stop working out new good ideas, we could at least work out the existing. All it would take is a couple of decades...
well I know what you mean master barliman, about this "lady" (who is definitly not one hehe). but Unlike this one, whom existence may be discussed... there are written facts mentionning Aragorn was not at Amon Hen precisely... but as you say, c'est la vie

Aragorn was on Amon Hen, going there in search of Frodo. He even sat down in the high seat, but got no answers. Sitting there he heard first the Orcs and then the horn of Boromir. The top of Amon Hen with the high seat would make a good diorama, especiall when we get a miniatures depicting him. Alas, his chances this time are slim, which at least saves Chris from deciding how to bring title and expectations of this miniture in line...
A very good point - and I was wrong regarding the number of voters, of course: I glanced at the wrong figure - 42 voters is actually pretty pathetic. And there was me thinking that over 70 people had made the effort for a change.
