Fantasy Flight Games
Theres been a lot of favorite this and favorite that threads lately here on the forums (including the favorite hero tournament - congratulations Legolas!) So, I thought Id do a favorite character artwork thread. Though some characters are only featured on their actual hero/ally cards, many others...
Sauron himself slew Gil-galad with the heat of his bare hands. Recalling the encounter at the great Council at Rivendell before the Fellowship took the One Ring south, Elrond said that only he and Círdan stood by Gil-galad in that last mortal contest.
It was said that Ereinion was given the name Gil-galad, 'star of radiance', because his helm and mail, and his shield overlaid with silver and set with white stars, shone frim afar like a star in sunlight or moonlight, and could be seen by Elvish eyes at a great distance.
