    With more than a thousand threads in this forum, I'm not finding a specific one a simple task.
    So I guess this will have to do.
    As a new member I think it's easiest to get to know me by sharing some items I've done so far.

    I'm motivated to bring the stuff that wasn't replicated to life from the Lord of the Rings films.
    My first piece was Boromir's Shield
    [​IMG]

    Then I took a shot at the Mithril Shirt of which I have now made 5
    [​IMG]

    Then, being a collector myself and needing to build displays for my pieces, I did this sculpture to display my Shards of Narsil
    [​IMG]

    And most recently made this Helm of Eomer. It's authentic, all metal (brass & aluminum), with a genuine leather interior and real horse hair mane.

    Wow, thanks for all the compliments!

    The shards display is close to a 1:1 but I had to shrink it just a bit so I can get it out the door should I need to.

    Yes, I hope to make more Eomer Helms, that's kind of in the works right now.

    Thanks Arwyniel, good to be here.

    Wow man you make some nice props, I'm with you in making props that weren't reproduced from Lord of the Rings. I especially like your Eomer's helmet.( I'm a big fan of Rohan armour) Keep at it man!

    The first one I made I labelled "FIRST"
    So now each gets a serial No.
    These are 001, 002, & 003 from left to right in the photos.
    PM me if interested in purchasing.

    Thats cool... You made some great stuff... I like the NArsil display, if I had the room, I would gladly put this thing in my living room... :lol

    You plan to make other replicas?

    If you like you can PM me a price list of stuff you do, that would interest me...

    Very nice work. Is the Boromir shield a one time thing or do you make them?

    That is some awesome work. I actually started a mithril shirt myself, but veeeery quickly got bored with it. I think it may have been a tighter weave than yours, and it was quite finicky work.

    Also sending a PM about the Eomer helms...
