Hi, I'm new here. Favourite Tolkien race is Dwarves. Favourite period would be around the time of "The Hobbit" and a bit earlier.

Married, Wife, three kids and I make miniatures (toy soldiers) for a living.

Greetings Mjolnir!! Welcome to PT! I think its cool when there are people like you , grown ups with family and all, that still have a passion for LOTR and all fantasy work. You make miniatures eh? Cool. I like them, a shame im not ambitious enough to start collecting them. :elfbiggrin:

You don't have to be ambitious...... you just have to be able to afford them :D

As for my age? Well, I got in to Middle Earth when I was 7 or 8 and now at the age of 32 I'm inducting my kids. The oldest is 6, and we've just started reading through the Hobbit together (she does the reading, and I explain the harder words) and my son would watch the films all day, every day, if we let him.

Welcome Mjolnir! Wow, that's very interesting that you make toy soldiers for a living. Very cool. Do you make any LOTR miniatures?

Oh, and good thing you're starting your kids young :).

See you around!

Now that is the spirit! Hook them while they are young! Welcome Mjolnir, it is an honour to have Tors hammer with us. Explore, enjoy and don't be afraid to ask questions or to answer them. See you around! :happyelf:

@ Amarië: I was going to be "Grond", but that's not a very Dwarfy name :)

@ Eruwen: I might have been the guy who got the job making the LoTR figs for GW if I accepted the job offer in 1997. Alas, I chose to be self employed and GW weren't hiring freelance sculptors at the time.

Well, this gives you the opportunity to make your own figurines of LOTR, right? Or would that be copyright infringement of some sort?

Welcome Mjolnir!

Can I have a fully functional, jointed, anatomically correct Faramir please?

No, don't just put new clothes on Ken.

@ Eruwen: That would mean I couldn't sell them....... so it's a no go area :(
