    what do you guys mean by a floor mount? are you talking about something like the mount for hadahadafang (forgive spelling) or would it be like something larger that would stand the blade vertically?

    While a Hadhafang-style stand is a possibility, you would need a fair amount of space to display a sword that big horizontally. If it's going to be a floor stand, my guess is that it would have to be a vertical display of some kind. The other issue is whether or not it will be sold with the sheath - it it is, a Hadhafang type of stand wouldn't really work.

    they can make a wall mount for it its not that hard if you think about, i would much rather get a wall mount, i think when i get hadafang i will get a custom mount made. Just so it will stand horrizontally on the wall

    In the weopons and Warfare book it says that they were the same. The elves that were in the last alliance also lived in lorien and even perhaps fought in the last alliance. Legolas's father Thrandul thought in the battle of the last alliance and he lived in Mirkwood. One of the reasons was that the elves were evolved enough and they couldn't get any better.
    Hope that this helps.

    The wall mount would be insanely big, especially if it was horozontally displayed. I don't thinkl it's a possibility.

    I like the wall mount better than a floor mount, look man, they can mount just about anything on a wall, huge medeival swords, Rifles, chelves, moose heads....

    But I will mount it myself to where it crosses in front of my elven warrior shield...

    EBM, How about a Elven warrior helm above the two swords and the sheild and flanked by the Last Aliance elven pennant and the Galadhrim banner from Helms deep? That would be an awesome display!

    for me, the EWS and the EWH (elven warrior helm). but thats way, way to expensive.

    hmmm... Assuming they reproduce Aeglos, that'll be my weapon. The Elven Warrior Sword is very appealing, though. I do like Haldir's sword. Perhaps just something standard with the Elven vine design and the almost-scimitar looking appearance would be best. I wish they'd reproduce Aeglos full-size... How would you all like to have a nine foot glaive-spear at the ready?

    Forget the banner and pendant, but ya you got it, although I want one sword crossed over the shield and the helm above that, the other sword will be somewhere at the ready......

    i was wondering, they should make the elven warrior spear, becuase like weapon and warfare said you need both hands to wield the large sword so men with sheilds were equiped with spears as their primary weapon....they should make the spear too so you would have a realistic set, there is no possible way you could wield that sword and the elven sheild

    Actually you could, I made a carved wood recplica, ruffly the same size, and although the weight would be different, it is still relativley easy to slash with, if you know the right techniques:D

    EBM the weight of the sword had big thing to do with hit, that sheild would be very heavy, and that sword would be too, and thats alot to be swinging around all day, and plus you can slash but wouldnt have the proper speed and moves to defeat lots of enemies you need somthing smaller or that can be wielder easier like their spear/glaive

    Maybe the props would be heavy, but the elves would make them extremely light.

    I hated the weapons and warfare book, don't take anything out of it as fact. It says the elves could draw a 200 pound bow, thats like lifting a 150lbs with one arm, if they can do that, then I think they could swing this sword with one hand.
    And yes it is practical, a spear and shield, the spear is much longer and weighs more, yet is was used one handed. A staff can be a very adequate weapon used with one hand.

    It worked for them didn't it, and it works for me, but I am no man, you look upon an Elven warrior of the Last Alliance, and I have mastered this weapon!
