    What we want folks to do with pictures is to add them to the Gallery section under the appropriate catogory then place a link to them here in the forums.

    I also received my aragorn banner and it is really cool.

    I heard from the maker that they thinking about producing the arwen banner when aragorn become king at the end of the movie.

    As BBB doesn't make banners or stuff like that, I think that I'm not breaking any rule, so here it is www.flaggen-pehl.de

    I heard in a post somewhere around here that they were available in the official LOTR shop, but as I'm european it's easier to me to buy them in Germany.

    Hope u enjoy them!!! thay are a great complement for swords!!!

    Does anyone know where I might find an Orc flag for sale???

    Elven Pennant

    I got the elven pennant a few days ago, its awesome I am going to hang it above my bed. I think in the film there are a few different color schemes, maybe signifying the different battalions. They might also have a differrent heraldic device in the circle. I think on the back cover of the Weapons and Warfare book you can see the alternate colorations (I didn't bring my copy to school with me, otherwise I'd check).

    BTW does any one know whose heraldic device is on the one that is for sale? I found this site that shows all the devices that Tolkien drew and it isn't one of them. It looks kind of like a colorized version of the star of the house of Feanor. I think it is also the same device that is on the armor of the Helm's Deep Galadhrim's armor at the point of the 'V' shaped chest plate. (also pictured in W&W)

    I am moving this to the General LoTR Boards. This has nothing to do with Weapons and Armour.

    Can you guys tell me about the quality of the banners? It says it's polyester but how does it look? does it look similar to a cotton or linnen banner (not too shiny)?
    thanks

    I can't comment on any of the others, but my elven pennant is great. Its made out of a pretty high quality polyester and stitched well and the colors are really vibrant. The gromets seem sturdy enough for it to be actually flown from a pole or what have you. They get my reccomendation.

    To get those same flags (from the German distributor) here in the US, go to http://www.mithrilarmoury.com/

    I got the Elven pendant and I have to say that I was a little disappointed. The polyester is so thin that you can see your hand through it. The colors are nice, but I was envisioning somthing different I guess... like actual different colored materials sewn together, not just a silk-screened thin material. I also wish they would make in a smaller scale so they can be hung in a normal room... I don't live in a castle or in Rivendale with their high-vaulted ceilings.

    I expect that the Rohan flag will be made the same way with the same thin/see-through material. I'm thinking of trying my hand at making one myself, using this one as a pattern but using richer materials.

    (am I just being too critical?)

    I think that for $30USD each you are. You'll be hard-pressed to do more for less, especially since New Line has to get their licensing fee from the merchandise too.

    I was a little disappointed too, at first, because of course you expect it to be of a thick material like in the movie. Then you realize that you pay $70 for a good US flag, and look how many of those they make, with no licensing fee....

    If it is any consolation, I got mine through a fellow LOTR fan in Germany (where they are made) and at the time I paid retail price, cost me $60 each before shipping, which was another $10. I'm ordering the rest of them through MithrilArmoury, too bad they don't have the Orc Banner, I might have to make that one myself...:(
