I opened a booster pack. I saw Éowyn. The only thing that has stopped me buying since is lack of funds. :)
Remember, NetRep rulings are official. This does not necessarily mean they are correct.

You probably aren't playing Fallen Wizards correctly. This prompted the backlash erratum that I will link to as soon as I notice it is officially posted. :)

AFAIK Angelo Montanini doesn't sell his original paintings. (The Eowyn painting in the Greisinger Museum in Switzerland looks like it was commissioned later).

Believe it or not, I was offered the original fpor 'Fury of the Iron Crown' by Angelo for a whopping Eu3000.

Even though I collect the art (I have 24 paintings now in total), this was waaaayyyyy outside my budget.

Ever since I read the Lord of the Rings I was fascinated by the Balrog. The beautiful painting by Rob Alexander comes close to how I always imagined this demon from the first age. I especially love those colours.
The original painting by Rob Alexander is currently up for sale on Ebay!

Wow!

This painting went for a really great price. Really pleased for both the seller and buyer (not me)!

3) And Forth He Hastened - Donato Giancola. Great painting and it depicts two of my favourite Tolkein characters - Beren and Luthien.

Looks like Donato Giancola didn't study the source well, unless, of course, this is not the first meeting, which it is, I presume, according to the flavor text.
"It is told in the Lay of Leithian that Beren came stumbling into Doriath grey and bowed as with many years of woe, so great had been the torment of the road" (The Silmarillion).
I doubt Beren would have been running around Dungortheb in such an attire ;)

I think the players look like they have all just escaped from the mines of Moria.

The chap on the far left looks like a descendant of Bombur, and the chap fifth from left has a prize-winning Dwarf beard.
