Förster44 @ Morgoth and Sauron

As you said yourself, from Sauron we know for certain he could take a very pleasing physical form as Annatar, the Lord of Gifts, until the destruction of his body during the downfall of Numenor.

For Morgoth we do not have such explicit records (edit: actually we do, see Scifi.stackexchange.com), but keep in mind that originally Melkor as one of the Valar and first creations of Eru Illuvatar could very well have possessed an enthralling appearance similarly to Sauron until his first defeat and imprisonment at the hands of the Valar or later degenerations / cripplings (e.g. the duel with Fingolfin). He surely didn't look nearly as advantageous later on.

I'd also like to point out that especially the early stages of Arda's history (which this picture would be set in) are dominated by the Elves which you could easily classify as being hyper-metrosexual. So it would kind of make sense for Melkor and Sauron to adapt under some circumstances :-P

Förster44 @ Mod Appreciation Week 2018

It's always nice to praise a mod and even better when you might get a game for it :D
(Also I'd be most interested in Total War: Warhammer if that plays a role^^)

Förster44 @ Military tents of the Noldor and Dúnedain...

"Tents of the Noldor and Dúnedain" sounds like the title of a rather filthy fanfiction, though.

I love building uber-fortifications, so bigger defense buildings are always a very welcome sight to behold :D

That's the scene between Galadriel and Frodo.

Definitely not from the Silmarillion ;-)

Förster44 @ Mod Appreciation Week 2017

I'll just stop by to drop my love for LotR-TW, the first and best LotR conversion mod for the TW series there is. While it is a bit dusty, I just love the detailed in-depth gameplay options it provides and the things it achieves to do with the engine of Rome: Total War are just incredible. Twitter.com

Förster44 @ Prince Imrahil

To be fair, I didn't make that claim up by myself - I read it on Ardapedia (a german and very extensive wiki about anything related to Middle Earth which is usually reliable) and sadly there's no source provided there. I guess I have to ask them in the respective discussion section xD

Förster44 @ Prince Imrahil

I guess it's mostly the cape design that shows the inspiration. Add to that the style of his hair, the look of the breastplate and the caricature-ish style of Games Workshop and it doesn't seem that unlikely any more^^

Förster44 @ Prince Imrahil

Yes, but Imrahil's appearance in the tabletop is based on the figurine of Irolas from the collectible figures ( Thumbs3.picclick.com ). At least that's what I've been told - if it's incorrect, consider this as another correction ;-9

Förster44 @ Prince Imrahil

Well, in The Lord of the Rings Strategy Battle Game (by Games Workshop) Irolas is identified as Imrahil too. That may not make the bulk of his merch incarnations, but at least it happens :D

So Irolas consists of at least 50% Imrahil (hey, this sounds like an ad. Maybe it even is? :-P), which in turn means that at least 50% of Imrahil showed up in the films, and that's precisely what I wanted to say originally :D

Förster44 @ Prince Imrahil

Correction: He is actually called Irolas and was originally inteded to replace both Beregond and Imrahil in the movie, as he also takes care of the wounded and unconscious Faramir. However, in the merchandise he is mostly referred to as Imrahil.

Förster44 @ Prince Imrahil

It is speculated that he had a cameo appearance when Faramir enters Minas Tirith after retreating from the defence at Osgiliath, looking like this: Images2.wikia.nocookie.net

The Edain team took their Imrahil design from that, so it seems to be a plausible theory to me (especially considering that he just casually speaks up to Faramir & Gandalf and is not dressed like a regular soldier);-)

That Erebor gate is serious MOTY stuff though. I really hope we'll get to experience it in action one day, one way or another :-)

Förster44 @ Middle Earth Siege Style Art

Sadly the artist didn't tell us (source at Daroz.deviantart.com ). From the looks of it, I'd wager he took some heavy inspiration from Morgoth's invasion of Gondolin.

The Edain community uses Tunngle as a means to play online, it's pretty straightforward :-)

Förster44 @ Rise of Mordor Official Soundtrack: #1 Main Theme

Not meaning to discourage you, but to me it sounds like a confused mashup of the hobbit movie soundtracks (with a bit of LotR music at the end), mostly consisting of the theme of Durin's folk. I don't know, but for a main theme of a middle earth mod, I personally would pick something more original, or at least more consistent / not as faction specific.

Förster44 @ Rise of Mordor: Release Date Prophecy

I don't even see that info in the text. Any specific line that clearly indicates this? Judging by the amount of work that has yet to be done, I don't think a release is coming any time close to soon.
