    Agreed, but we still gotta poke fun at stuff when we can. Besides, JRRT didn't make the movie.

    If I was trying to scare an enemy, I know putting wings on my helmet wouldn't be my first choice.:p

    i seem to be the only one that thinks that the "headgear"
    looks really good.
    It is not functional but it isnt supposed to be that either.

    As i have wrote before. it is a tradition for cermonial units to look stupid.

    heh, you said both that you think it looks good, and that it looks stupid in the same post.

    I still like the idea i posted at the old site.

    The wings are actually a safety feature for horsemen...

    Y'know, the horse goes down, rider falls, and BOOM, wings deploy just like an airbag....

    Look, I just wanted to tell you, It is, which I was told by my lord of the rings obssesd freinds family, that thay are actually called 'the guards of the fountain court' and their helmets are made of a presious substance called mithril which is only found in Kazad-dum(now known as moria).

    :cool: :)
