I predict that Legolas gets zero votes.

I live in the city of Gulf, on the shores of Lake Water. This fun fact has nothing to do with this badge you're pointing at.

Ok, how is one supposed to decide when they are almost all perfect and equally good...

I voted for King Aragorn just for spites. My Aragorn doesn't have a beard like in the movies. And he looks like a mighty Dúnadan..

It was a tough choice between Gandalf the Gray and the Witch-King

Those were my exact two choices, but I gave it to Gandalf because he rules.

I like both Gimli and Gandalf a lot, but I think Gimli's portrait has more character.

And somebody might notices uncanny similarities between mr.Howe himself and some characters...
(not Legolas!)

Boromir seems cropped a bit funny, he always looks to me like he's smoking some apparatus instead of blowing a horn.

I too think that Gimli's portrait shows a great deal of character. My personal favorite.

I used John Howe's work for the cards I mocked up featuring characters not in the game; can't vote for them, though.

John Howe's gallery is lovely to browse. My favorite Aragorn portrait is this one, grimmer than the WotR ones: http://www.john-howe.com/portfolio/gallery/details.php?image...

(I'm one of the votes for Gimli - nice departure from the comical treatment in Peter Jackson's films)

So far the only ones not getting any votes are Strider and Merry!

Well the Strider pic is awful and the Merry pic is not as nice as the Perrin pic (but better than the ring bearers one).

I like the Strider pic. But I could only vote one.
