The poor man really has a stake in the country. The rich man hasn't; he can go away to New Guinea in a yacht. The poor have sometimes objected to being governed badly; the rich have always objected to being governed at all
We love our superheroes because they refuse to give up on us. We can analyze them out of existence, kill them, ban them, mock them, and still they return, patiently reminding us of who we are and what we wish we could be.
These days, we are not allowed to drink, to smoke or even to have a mistress. It’s just prohibition, prohibition, prohibition,

The model is good, (had it for ages). It's just the paint job in that pic that's screwed it. Not sure if i'll pick up the book...the completionist in me wants it, but i don't know if it will get much use. But i kinda hope that's not the main book release for the quarter.

6 new scenarios means I'll get it. Could be handy for the next tournament I'll run by the very least. More scenarios always handy!

It's like they tried to paint Legolas' face as a what-if to see his face aging like human.

It IS a great sculpt though, seen plenty of lovely paint jobs for it over the years. Shame it's in a two pack though, already have the Aragorn sculpt.

I'm a breakfast connoisseur.

A quick Google finds this which shows its perfectly possible to make Legolas look good. Some of the recent paint jobs from forgeworld have been genuinely good, but the new one really is pretty awful. It's a rare day when I look at an official paint job and think I could do better.

I don't know that it is a new paintjob to be honest. If memory serves that was the OG paintjob.
That Legolas has been ugly for quite a while now.

I'm still hoping for a new Eomer, or at least a re-release of the Knight of the Pelennor version.
