Cave-drake

The creature type of Cave-drake is "dragon". My proposal is this term be replaced by the keyword "drake". Reasoning: The only other dragons in ME are the unique ones bearing names. I cannot see any reason why cave-drake should make an exception. The objection that ICE had plenty of time to make an e...

Re: Introduce yourself

Welcome to the Forum!
You might consider being listed on the Global players list (contact the Jabberwock for this purpose). The longer it gets, the easier to find other fellows nearby.

Re: Promo cards and misprints

Here's the French Snaga hai card (together with the Dutch version of Lure of Nature, another example where illustrations got mixed up)

You may even use Dark Quarrels to cancel cvcc against a company consisting of only orcs, trolls and men.

Re: Promo cards and misprints

Like in my own copy, there's no crown. My understanding is they're not promos as such. Rather, I.C.E. somehow forgot to print them in the normal MELE run for Spanish and German, so had to do a separate printing and distribute them separately. Hence, they're like promos. Exactly. The German Orkstadt...

Re: Will of Sauron Artwork

In MECCG there are quite a few representations of Sauron with a 'physical' presence - not least the Sauron card from the Balrog set. But also cards like Hendolen, for example, where I am guessing the robed guy on the steps is meant to be Sauron - note the lidless eye motif on the curtains. I always...

I opened a booster pack. I saw Éowyn. The only thing that has stopped me buying since is lack of funds. :)
AFAIK Angelo Montanini doesn't sell his original paintings. (The Eowyn painting in the Greisinger Museum in Switzerland looks like it was commissioned later).

Re: Do you have 'one card obsession' ... And why?

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! https://www.e...

Re: Merchandising / Stuff about MECCG - List with photos

I've uploaded a flyer from ICE announcing the release of METW in 1995 (4 pages):
The card design wasn't finalized at that time and there is an interesting preview of the Saruman card.

Re: Do you have 'one card obsession' ... And why?

I'm a fan of the Nazgul illustrations by Liz Danforth, especially the Khamul card. I remember that when I opened the first boosters of ME more than 20 years ago I found the illustrations of the Nazgul very cool and exciting. Usually, I don't appreciate any extensions made up by third parties to orig...

Misprints

I'd been sorting my hoard of cards recently. About twenty years after having put hundreds of C/U cards in a box I came across a misprint I was unaware I had it: One of my German cards (Caves of Ulund, actually) has a blank back, it's completely white. Interesting, never seen this before. Probably at...

Re: URD & LE Manifestations

Balrog rules (p. 1) state A Balrog player acts as a Ringwraith player. Any card and rules text applying to a Ringwraith also applies to The Balrog (e.g., if a card refers to a Ringwraith, it now applies to "a Ringwraith or The Balrog") so I'd say rules forbid the play of Sauron vs. Balrog (however, ...
