Yes - that was the inevitable Gheek Tongue of Tolkien greeting. I have loved the Lord of the Rings and Hobbit novels since childhood, and I'm steeped in the mythos of Middle Earth. I enjoyed the Peter Jackson films, despite their flaws, and usually have either one of them or the soundtrack thereof playing in the background when I desire wargame inspiration.
One of the things I like most in wargaming is canonicity. I like being able to say,"That's an orc!" and "That's not an orc!" and while I understand that folks might disagree with my interpretation, that doesn't dissuade me.
The basis of canonicity for my Tolkien Wargaming is the novels by JRRT, the History of Middle Earth series by Dr. Christopher Tolkien, the MERP RPG by Iron Crown, and the films by Peter Jackson, in that order.
This blog was started to help propel an Arthedain army miniatures project that I started over ten years ago for the Armati rules system. The project stalled, but I'm determined to pick it back up, and have had some results in finishing miniatures that have languished on the painting table for years. That said, I will be updating less often than on my other blogs, but aim to post an update at least once a month.
So, Onward, for the House of Isildur. Arané
