    My first inclination was to vote for Finrod, mainly because he is my favorite character. But once I stopped and thought about the choices, I came to the conclusion that Turin got my vote. Second would of probably been Fingolfin or Beren.

    Cool, by my name you can tell that I am a big time Turin fan, the thought of a warrior so fierce that his enemies flee before him is impressive.

    However, after I posted the poll I had to go with Fingolfin. He nearly whipped Morgoth.

    Hurin got my vote. He defied Morgoth, not to mention his fighting skill.

    True enough. But it would been better for me if instead he 'nearly' whipped Morgoth, that he 'totally' whipped Morgoth;).

    Ya, I guess. Put him up against Turin though, and then we will see who's the better;)

    True. Fingolfin was an elf who (most likely) had a fair good deal of experience in fighting. Ah the complications!

    then again, it would be hard for anyone to combat someone like Turin. Fearless and carrying a sword capable of cutting through iron. Gurthang makes alot of difference.

    Another good point. That would be awesome, fighting another guy and breaking his sword with the first clash...

    I think Maedhros was a really strong fighter too,
    The fact that he lost his right hand didn't encumber him when it came to fighting. Instead, he got even better !
    What do you all think ?:eek:

    I agree he was good, but I feel that he had the same weaknesses as his father. He was foolish enough to steal from the gods who just saved his (as well as everyone elses) but during the war of wrath.

    Maehdros was an interesting character, I found. In some places you could see he did not approve of some of his fathers actions, but did not speak up. He stayed true to his oath, even though, IMO he realized the trouble it was causing.

    Good point. I guess the oath of Feanor was binding to his sons, causing them to act in ways that could be out of character.
