These two ideas are really sharp.

I'm hoping to have this done by the time I have another game night,

I also really think this one is perfect for a one to two player game…

Thoughts?

 

 

Wow, I'm not really that big of a fan of Magali Villeneuve but that second playmat is amazing! I think it captures the look of this game perfectly.

Thanks! It's still a work in progress for me… Trying to figure out the best placement of things, etc. (as you can tell, I'm defintely a fan of Magali, lol).

It really is great. Very, VERY thematic. It would make a lovely birthday presssent.

the execution is great, however the layout does not suit my way of playing, especially with two hands (afterall i have to have both beside me)

This Guy has some amazing stuff, his name is Donato Giancola & he has my favorite Rohan hero in all her honorable glory…

Loved this one…  Very dark feel to it…

This may honestly be my favorite one of this fight EVER.  Just has an epic feel to it (I know, that word gets way overused)… but I LOVE the perspective and depth this one has!  It almost feel 3D without being so… just amazing!

Brownmantle said:

THIS on may be one of the better ones for playmats yet… very simple.  Not overly busy and cluttered…

& a little something for custom sleeves…

Honestly didn't care much for these… the Galadriel ones just didn't really do much for me, but perhaps that is because she is probably one of my least favorite characters in Middle-Earth lore…  The Frodo/Gollum/Sam one was a bit disturbing… honestly thought Frodo was either breaking up a very akward moment between Sam and Gollum… oooooor was about to join in.  Just saying.  Treebeard was okay… just seemed a bit cartoonish, but perhaps fit his personality in the books and the movies.  Looks both naive and wise, all at the same time.

 

But THIS one…

… I LOVE.  Love the theme, (as you are probably aware by now, that's one of my favorite scenes in the entire Ring Cycle… but 'ol Brownmantle here still loves it more, I believe!)

For playmats, I agree with the person who said that I don't want something that's too busy. I'm always on the hunt for awesome atmospheric forest art (or photography). One of my favorite artists for the game is Ben Zweifel. He hasn't done as much work lately and it looks like he's been working more on Star Wars but he has some of the best forest scenes in the game.

 

For instance: http://benzweifel.com/#/lotr-9/

(from Fangorn?)(edit: it's Ancient Forest from VoI)

And the classic Forest Road!: http://benzweifel.com/#/lotr-4/
 

Edit: Oh and Dan, the Artist search feature on your card search is the best thing ever!

Wow, I really like Ben Weifel. Very nice. I can see why you like him.

Wow, Ben Zweifel really stepped up his art with that forest from VoI. At first I didn't like his art, and some pieces I do dislike like the Forest Road... it looks atmospheric, I guess, but it seems too undefined, too rushed, like a speedpainting. But that forest art I'd love to have as a playmat!
