The winner will be given a Purple name on the forums (in the same way that my name is Green) and receive a pack of our limited edition Purple One Ring dice, available only to the winners of these awards.

Please not that the winner of this category will be the author of the thread that is voted as the best.

Voting will be open for 10 days.

Best of luck to all of you, may the best Dwarf win.

Celavue's campaign thread for me- epic is the word. However, if I could have a second vote it would go to Bilbo of the White Tower's WIP. So much cool stuff in there. I'm really glad it's stickied. I didn't know him, but his work has inspired me regardless of that.

I voted for an 'oldie' as it was one of those that sticks in my dreadful memory as it was such a joy to watch. And this guy could sculpt Smaug as he should be, the quintessential paragon of draconian rage and cunning.
I hope he returns, and steps back into the light.

If Celevue's campaign goes on as far into the future as he planned I'm going to print all those reports out and have them leatherbound one day...
As it is currently, merely some of the most inspiring stuff I have seen on the internet ever.

Yep, I had to go for Natarn's as that was such an epic project. However, Celevue's will pass that if he gets all the way through his campaign, and is already right up there.

Celevue. If I may paraphrase Albert Camus by way of explanation

“A man's work is nothing but this slow trek to rediscover, through the detours of art, those two or three great and simple images of mounted ringwraiths in whose presence his heart first opened.”

I was between WoTR houserules, and "Why would anyone use High Elves". I finally went for the latter as it provides much in depth tactical analysis.

Hey! who are you calling an 'oldie'? :wink:

Thanks to those who kindly nominated me and even voted for me too! I didn't know about this friendly competition as I've been spending more time in the real world and only visit this super site from time to time to look at people's WIP threads.

How about a purple die for coming second in a category? :wink: Or maybe my name in green because I'm overcome with envy? Not for any other reason... Or black because I was nominated for 3 categories? Okay, I'll settle for that.

Well done to all the winners; all talented in their own ways. Keep up the good work and enthusiasm.

I'm part way through a vast battle in the loft playing SBG rules. My poor son (8) is being a bit thrashed as my army of the dead have taken out his balrog, two trolls and a goblin king while my Gondorian archers have wiped out about a hundred of his orcs and goblins... yet still the battle rages.

Hmm, beating an 8 year old may seem a bit harsh but in our last game (smaller scale) his elves, led by Gil-galad, took my uruks to pieces.

Is he obsessed with the hobby? Not like I have been, but he did READ The Lord of the Rings last month. It took him just 3 weeks. Who's a proud daddy then? :-D
