    i think Mububban was trying to save spoiling any of the story from people who have not read it, which you may have now done

    Not to forget the added effect of not getting the feedback of the blow that you would have from a fixed handle/head combination. Also, allthough this weapon seems to have an unreasonably long chain, flails would normally have a chain that is at least short enough not to be able to hit the hand holding the handle.

    Well, with a head that size, the flail will hit you in the hand no matter how long the chain is or isn't.

    The witchking's helmet looks better from that angle, but I doubt they will use that mace in the movie. If they were going to use weapons that stupid looking, Aragorn would have a 10 foot rubber sword.

    I've read some ROTK reviews. Several mentioned that the scene with the Witchking was awesome, so I am guessing he didn't have that freakin' huge flail. Hopefully. Or, if he does, not nerly so big.

    while witchking does look awesome. the flail is way too big, it kinda looks like a cartoon or something.

    yeah it does look a little large but its not to big for the witchking

    and if it were real and you could find some way toswing it at all and then manage not to break the chain it would kill who ever you hit with it

    I saw RotK today and it turns out he really does have this way too large flail. After he crashes his fell beast on Éowyns sword he woops it out god know's wherefrom. Allthough it gains some credibility seeing him wield it in motion it still is a little ridiculous. Then again he has broken laws of physics before. :D

    Sorry about that Skyanide. I think because I was so enthusiastic after seeing it (I saw it at a private viewing in the Netherlands) and because I thought it wasn't such a big deal I kinda forgot the forumites' rights.

    If you seen the movie you know everything the Witch King does is badass even his death. :) He uses that dang thing like a wrecking ball. :D
