    I'm a fan of the book, although I think they did a wonderful job bringing to life all the weaponry of Middle Earth and Numenor.

    I guess I'd have to say Andruil. 100's of years old, passed from heir to heir (and yes there were a couple of women in there).

    Numenoreans were much taller than the other men of ME, so the sword would have been very long. The runes and power that was sung into it would have made it majestic indeed.

    Now I'm starting to give a dissertation on ancient Elvish. lol

    I found a good trick to make balrog's flame whip: you mix and attach orange and white christmas light cords together! you can add some tough rope in the middle for extra strenght, and make the handle with a wooden shaft covered with gold, red and yellow wool. it makes you a hot, shiny, flame whip! :D

    How about some heavy guage rope dipped in gasoline? Of course you could only use it once...

    And of course...kids, don't try this at home!!!

    Or better yet: you cover the rope with a fire-proof material, than spread napalm on it! the rope won't burn, and the napalm will burn slowly, giving an orange glow!

    Another cool weapon is the uruk crossbow, deadly, evil looking, and powerful.

    yup... take a crowssbow, chip the wood a little to round it, and tint it ebony, with a glossy varnish. change the rope so it look old and used, and voila! an orc crossbow!

    I'm with the Byzantine Warrior on this one...Gil-Galad's Aeglos is the one thing I want above all else. Everyone who sees it at the traveling LoTR exhibition always claims how stunning it is and I'll have my chance in October this year at the Indiana State Museum.

    No, a lightsaber in a LOTR thread does not count. Please stay on topic.
