    You are correct! Alexander the "great", and Darius in battle. I am Persian and this was the only picture of Darius i could find. I said it once and ill say it again i would definately buy the horn of Gondor if it were mdae but only if functional.

    The only way they could really do it is tomake it out of some kind of resin, fiberglass or plastic, so theat they could get them uniform.

    Of course, the "functional" horn people would hate it... ;)

    Ok, you asked for it, if after this you cannor sleep due to the horrible content of the pics, don't tell me ;)

    I just put pics from the costumes, and not from the horn (it is really poor).

    Yeh i am buying Boromir's collection (shield and sword), and i would buy a horn if it were made. I can mae a functional warhorn, but i am having trouble finding a bull's horn. I have been looking around and no luck so far. mI live in Australia and i dont know where i can find them.

    Just search under "drinking horn" and you'll find lots of vendors selling both drinking and blowing horns.

    The problem with horns is unless they are synthetic instead of real bull horn, they will all be different sizes. That means the metal fittings will all have to be custom sized. Mucho dinero.

    You can bet!... I was since 2 months trying to find a horn on the Internet, and they were all expensive, and one day, walking arround I saw a street market, and found a guy selling horns, natural and synthetics, the natural were kinda coarse, they need a lot of work, polishing, cutting, etc... but the one I buyed was synthetic, perfect because I wanted it to paint and modify it... it cost me 8€ (arround 10$)...

    I would absolutely buy it. But I can't see it being worth any more than say $100.

    I would most certainly buy the Haradrim horn if it sounded as in the movie :)

    I just love that sound :D


    @Boromir, go to your local butcher and see if they have any :) (that's what I'll do if I can't get it in other ways)

    Its possible to make a horn that would produce some kind of a noise. Just look at those plastic ones they sell at hockey games and fairs. You could make a plastic one, tinker with things and see what kind of a sound it makes. It's very possible... it would... almost be like playing a trumpet, if anyone has or does play it. You could probably make it out of wood... :)

    Wow. Great job!

    Can you give us some details? Is that a real horn or synthetic? Is it blowable? Are the fittings metallic or some sort of painted epoxy?

    And if you made that elven armour in your profile pic, you need to make a thread all about that too :D
