All the Orcs of Mirkwood have gathered to witness the battles under the Thunderdome, as 16 of the deadliest orcs in Mirkwood go under the Iron Dome in a fight to the death! The Thunderdome was forged in the smithies under Dol Guldur and were dragged by a team of wargs into a dark open glade bare of trees. There it was erected by a 100 of Uruks of Dol Guldur under the starless skies!

Brazen horns are blown. Drums roll under the dark forest. The raucous cries of countless orcs, echo throughout  Mirkwood… one of the Nazgûl sits upon his throne high atop the ruins and looks down upon the terrible shadows of Mirkwood. Suddenly a great flash of light shoots up out of Dol Guldur, lurid and green… The signal has been sent!

Let the Games begin!

Here is Round One ~ Mirkwood, soon to be followed by Round One ~ Moria, and lastly Round One ~ Isengard!

The time has come to vote!
















Keep your eyes open… Round One ~ Moria is coming next!

    Very nice! Looking forward to seeing the Moria and Isenguard ones, and the rest of the contest.

    Many of the Mordor orcs seemed familiar from the LOTR movies, a lot of these ones though look stranger and different… I guess there’s a lot of variety when it comes to Orcs. 🙂

  • They are a mix of Hobbit and Lord of the Rings Orcs

    Hey RL……I thought Ufthak was the Jailor of Dol Guldur? At least that’s the name that popped up with I used the black speech program.

  • LOL… I might have mixed them up… let me fix it! Creating cards for 64 Orcs can drive one close to the edge of madness!!! LOL!

  • Fixed! Good eye CT!

    Nice! And on a related subject…I believe someone voting today may be on illegal drugs…..it’s the only explanation I can find for someone voting against Ufthak. LOL

  • CT

    Well, they do call it March Madness after all….LOL

  • Roberto Took

    Garn-rak is ugly even by orc standards! sheesh

  • CT

    He’s got such an elongated head, very unusual for an orc. He reminds me of Lurch from the Addams family

  • LMAO! LURCH!!! What a great Orc Name! I should have thought of it!

    So what happens in the case of a draw? Dalug-Hai and Narzug finished in a dead heat.
