    Hi to all. I am a huge Tolkien fan - both the books and the films. I also build Middle-earth diorama's. I built a bunch of them based on the LOTR films using the Armies of Middle Earth figures. Now I am branching out and doing scenes from THE SILMARILLION. I am now doing MORGOTH CREATES THE GREAT DRAGONS - a 24 x 34 inch piece using over 200 figures in 28 scale.

    I was hoping people here could advise me on where to obtain figures I can use for tortured elves. I am especially looking for hanging one or two person prison cages and things like that which would look natural in Angband.

    If anybody could advise me in which forum I should post this request here - I would be appreciative.

    Thanks.

    Hi gideon77 and welcome to TFF. :)
    Wow...those dioramas sound pretty amazing! Can you post pics of some of the ones you've done?
    I have no idea where you might find tortured elves, but you could look through: http://www.medievalcollectibles.com/ and see if they have anything you can use. From the sounds of how small that project is, you might have to make something yourself or have it custom made...? Good luck with it though. You don't see too much stuff done around The Silmarillion unless it's fan fiction. LoTR and the Hobbit get most of the attention.
