Evening speedy. Some Dale pikemen/swordsmen and Bardian archers kicking some Horsemaster of Rhun ass ;) For TLD of course.

I'd rather fight orcs than soilders of Rhun....poor Dwarves and people of Dale..they had to fight a whole army of them.

Your battle scenes are awesome! So vivid without oversized fantasy weaponry. Just love it!

One question though:
Ardapedia, the German-speaking Tolkien-Wikipedia is in a process of polishing their articles with professional artwork. So I am searching in Deviantart for artists who may allow us to use their work in a, of course, non commercial way. The consent of the artists is very important to us. Copyright and ownership of course would be marked so no one else could claim it. 

Could I use some of your works for this purpose?

I look forward to a positive answer. :D (Big Grin)

Any non commercial use of images I own the rights for is ok. :)
(btw, I am in the middle of repainting this exact piece, so if you wanted to use it on the wiki, there should be a new version uploaded today or tomorrow.)

Thank you so much! 
Ardapedia is a little bit "rusty" on the visual side but the articles are excellent, they are really some Tolkien-Freaks at work. :D

So your pics will be in a worthy environment. ;)

I would like to know what kind of armor that is called exactly?

Do you know, I just love the tile like design it has.

Reminds me of the Qin army in a way. Very Oriental.

the colors are actually a very minor adjustment here :) It's all painted monochromatic and then quickly painted over in a color layer and finally color adjusted to look blueish :)

thanks a lot :) I could maybe add a bigger version, but it's not really that good. The bigger it is, the better all the mistakes show :D
Slawin's avatar
I know that from my own experience - it's in fact some kind of trick to hide the flaws :D :P

Awesome, as always. :)

Speaking of Middle Earth, ever played the LOTR:TW mod for Rome: Total War? I just downloaded it the other day, it's pretty sweet.
