Stunning work. Your pictures look like they could have come out of a GW rulebook ( I mean that in a good way).  Really cinematic.

Would you care to show your Elves board?

I wondered what you have been up to Frank. I'm glad you put some pictures on LAF, they're fantastic images. You sir are an artist  :)

Hello Frank,
Great job all round on your SAGA lord of the rings, it has inspired me to collect some elves. I have a couple of questions on things I am not clear about:

* The Ent and the Great Eagle, are they supposed to activate as warriors (Sindar die)?

Elrond's Noldor banner bearer:
* Does he add +2 saga die in addition to Elrond's +1, or does Elrond count as granting +2 saga die whilst his banner bearer is alive, reverting to one saga die if the banner bearer is killed (unless Elrond takes up the banner)?
* Does the banner bearer have the option of being mounted?
* Is the banner bearer a separate unit that requires order dice, or does he replace one model in a Noldor unit (like a war banner model from ravens shadow)?

Many thanks,
Jayden Barr

Hi Jayden,

Thank you! I hope I can explain and answer your questions.

1. Ent and Eagle will activate like Elite.

2. Yes, he adds +2 to Elrond’s +1. If Elrond picks up the standard form the dead standard bearer he generates 3 SAGA dice. The Standard bearer and Elrond count as one unit. Yes, mounted is an option.

Before I am off for vacations, some more pictures. This time the Fellowship & Gollum…
