The great Troll beasts…

Here is our next update to Mordor’s Servants of Shadow, Trolls, one of the strongest of Morgoth’s creations in the pits of Angband.

“They were trolls. Obviously trolls. Even Bilbo, in spite of his sheltered life, could see that: from the great heavy faces of them, and their size, and the shape of their legs, not to mention their language, which was not drawing-room fashion at all, at all.” ~ J.R.R.Tolkien

Vintage Van Art

Nothing says 1970s like a custom van, with a paint job featuring whatever cool thing you were into at the time and Middle-earth was no exception!

“In the 1970s, many van owners took their shaggin’ wagons seriously and tricked them out to the limit: Big shiny sidepipes with mellow sound, plush interior carpeting for maximum fornication, duals to amp up the horsepower and perhaps most importantly, the artwork on the sides.” ~ Flashbak.com Lay your staff here for more »
