Trust me, it was. And what are those other books you are talking about? I read the LotR and Hobbit and watched the LotR, but I never heard of the others.

In the next few years there will be some whose only Middle Earth familiarity is what they saw in a Hobbit movie (i.e., never read the books and never seen LotR movies). Remember, a 16-year-old forum member who just saw the Hobbit and got excited about it would have just started Kindergarten when the first Peter Jackson LotR was released. They may have next-to-zero knowledge about LotR and their peer group may consider the Hobbit as having the "best ease of recognition" to use your words. If that hypothetical 16-year-old also plays Heroscape and thinks it would be cool to have Hobbit customs, LotR wouldn't be the last thing they'd search for, but it wouldn't be the first either.

I don't care all too much what the name is, but thought it logical to encompass the whole scope of the project, so that's why I brought it up. No matter what the name is, I *do* have a strong preference for is making sure that the *scope* of this project is greater than the LotR books, and can include the Hobbit, Silmarillion, etc. There's consensus on that, right?
I'm all for that, but as a member of *around* that demographic, I can say that most of us know about LotR. Perhaps more of my friends than my football teammates though.

To be fair, I don't think any of us truly understood it either.

Are you referring to the Children of Hurin, Silmarillion, and the Lost Tales of Numanor? These are all books written by Tolkien, I have yet to read the later two, but I have have heard good reviews of them.

Re: Lord of the Rings 'Scape Project; PM me if interested

The Silmarillion is the major book--detailing the history of Middle Earth from Creation to the time of the Hobbit/Lord of the Rings. It explains who Sauron is and why he is so evil, and it explains where the nine kings (Nazgul) came from. It tells about Elrond and his brother (who chose to be human). And it explains so many other things that make up the background of the Lord of the Rings and the Hobbit.

And it has some awesome, epic stories, such as the last stand of Hurin, and Fingolfin versus Morgoth, and the downfall of Gondolin....

Well, I'll take a short break from work and beg the question to the entirety of the confirmed members. Do we include all of Tolkien's other works that encompass the world of Arda/Middle Earth? A vote would be nice...

If we can find suitable minis, and the majority of our members have read beyond just the LotR and Hobbit, then I would be all for expanding our customs to more of his obscure works. To be honest there are so many great character from LotR/Hobbit that will be preoccupied for a long time with just them.

Re: Lord of the Rings 'Scape Project; PM me if interested

I think any Middle Earth character should be fair game. But let's be practical--we'll got limited resources, so let's make sure we do Gimli before we do Wulf.

So, to SoA's question, "should we encompass all of Tolkien's ME works or just LotR/Hobbit?" we so far have the following responses:
All Works: Xorlof & Isildur's Bane infectedsloth (although we both agree that popular characters from LotR/Hobbit should come first)
Only LotR/Hobbit: None yet

There is nothing more dangerous than sincere ignorance and conscientious stupidity. --MLK

I can't understand why we'd ever want to limit ourselves to LotR and the Hobbit. "Looks like we got all the characters from LotR and the Hobbit--that wraps this project up." I can't even understand why this is a question.

I think we should create a design for every one of Tolkien's characters from any of his works related to Middle Earth that we can find a suitable mini for.

Your custom probably has too much Defense.
