    that chariot is beyond moronic and stupid. no thanks.

    but if I can have a full set of Numenoreans with Elendil and Isuldur...I'll be happy.

    Ha. Finally a Hobbit model I like, and everybody else seems to hate it!

    Just to be clear.. the chariot is fully based on the movie design. Eventually only shown in the extended edition IIRC, but can't fault GW/FW for it!

    To be fair, it was a dumb design, if fun. :P But more C.S. Lewis Than J.R.R. Tolkein.

    I mean that Thrandruil is better value. The deathroller is small by comparison.

    That's my problem. FW did a great job of making a miniature based on the the absurd chariot from the movie. The concept of a giant two story chariot armed with a gattling crossbow sound like something that belongs in Warhammer Fantasy, not Middle Earth.

    Those of you who like it, that's great. I just won't be buying one or using it in the game.

    Thrandruil is more kid friendly? He is made of resin TBF, is the Death Roller Metal? Cost pewter was going up 300% last I checked in with Perry.

    Honestly no idea what a death roller is,. no idea it was FW

    Having looked at it, the deathroller needs atleast 3 moulds, thudrail needs 1.
