Mells Collection

Postby Mellony » Thu Jul 07, 2011 11:43 pm

After moving house last year, ive finally got round to mounting some of my collection, pics are naff, but thought i'd pop em on here anyway.

First up, my Bushido Katana, Bushido Wakizashi, Chen Pro Tiger Kat, Limited Edition MoMo No Saru Kat (Peach Monkey), ppk, bokken, shirasaya etc

Image

Then onto my lotr stuff, first up, the staffs and shield of gondor

Image

Then onto my other lotr wall, Dagger of the witch king, sams sword, sting, legolas's knives, Aaragorns Dagger, Sword of the witch king, sword of the nasgul

Image

Then onto my 3rd lotr wall, Swords of Théoden, Boromir, Isildur, reforged narsil, Glamdring, and striders sword.

Image

And some other bits that i have not got round to hanging yet, the Hanwei Viking Godfred, the Casiberia Scottish Lowlander, Gimli's axes, Sword of Arwen etc

Image

I must admit the rest is still in boxes, and as for the Uruk-hai, thats never going to see the light of day, i only got it for completeness, despise the looks of it.

In regards to the LOTR items, all i am missing is the scabbards, Eowyns sword, and the most annoying thing, the now-illegal high elven sword - that pissed me off so much

nice collection, I finally bought in some of the recent Gimli Bearded Axes and have a Strider Scabbard here for £60, I think it came back as it wasn't a great fit for the sword,the box might be missing it's outer sleeve - thought I;d mention if of interest.

P.S we'll do you a great deal on a Eowyn sword if you wanted, they're on special offer with United Cutlery at the moment.

I got the lowlander of our old friend Logan

Its very clumsy, at 5.75 feet, its nearly as tall as I, however, its also one of my favourite pieces, only problem is, its guard is very very large making it tricky to wall mount, note the rings running 90 degrees from the main hand guard bars

May just have to use a single hook or something

@Loz - i'll throw you an email later regarding the Eowyn and the bearded axe

Really love your collection Mell.

Are there any LOTR weapons you have to get until you have them all? I love Aargons sword. :D
