"Thank you for the suggestions this month. I will certainly include Shadowfax rearing. Although a horse is a difficult piece to make in some respects, the fact that he does not have clothing/ weapon detail makes up for that.
I did not include the bats as they only really look like bats when they are flying They would not look impressive hanging on to a branch like the unmentionable little squirrel.
Alas Gildor is right in his comments on a Sauron figure. I have excluded it as I do not think that my sculpting skills ( such as they are) could do justice to his brooding and terrifying presence. I think he would turn out as a rather large and richly decorated Nazgul and I don't think that would suitably represent him.
Lastly my apologies again to Axel for ommitting Eowyn last month. She is first in the list this time." Chris Tubb
Ok guys and girls, you still have 10 super ideas to choose from. I am experimenting with the auto lock on this forum this time, so it 'should' lock about 16:00 GMT. You have 7 days so don't wait until the last minute. this is a blind vote as usual so you will only see the results AFTER you vote.
Good luck to all entries, they will make great miniatures no matter who eventually wins.
No Orc did I suggest this round, as there is already an excellent candidate on the ballot. Plus, it's difficult to push these guys through, unless the right person makes the suggestion. Good luck to you know who! A GREAT idea!
as there are 2 suggestions which are originally from me, I am not sure, what to vote for, as Rumil is one of the figures I would love to see but also more Gondorian characters. It is not sure, if the last winner Haldir could be realised with separate parts to create the 3 brothers, I am forced to think about what to vote for. And there are some other really nice suggestions, e.g. Eowyn -hey another female character or Bolg's standard bearer which comes close to my idea of the body guard of Bolg!! (but not my bat of Middle Earth)....
the idea of a rearing horse, unmounted... and not "any" horse that is, is quite excellent I think... I'll vote for him now, we'll see if he goes to the next turn Though I also really like the idea of an Eowyn "as a maiden" not as a soldier!
