MEC Day 10: Most Epic Armor

"This is no mindless ramble of orcs. These are Uruk-Hai. Their armor is thick, and their shields broad."

This... this, folks, was hard. Did anyone else have a difficult time picking out what they thought was the most epic armor? But enough of the chit-chat. Which armor did I pick?

Haldir's armor from Helm's Deep

I apologize for not finding a better picture of the armor. Most of the pictures of Haldir at Helm's Deep are close-ups of his face as he's dying (a sad topic, really, but we can't go into that now), and not of his armor at all. I'm sure there's a wonderful, full-length picture somewhere, showcasing his braces, gauntlets, boots, and entire breastplate, but I can't find it. For now, we'll have to content ourselves with just this. It's still pretty spiffy... er, I mean, of course, epic.

Oh, and can we please take just one moment to appreciate the epicness of Haldir's red cloak? It's just like Enjolras's red vest of power! Only longer... and more fantasy... and with a hood.

  1. I love that armor! It's so amazing,(especially the red cloak, I really want one!) but I think I'm going to go with Eyowns armor(-:

  2. This was my favorite armor as well! :D

  3. Oh, I had forgotten about Haldir's costume in this scene. It really is rather magnificent, isn't it?

  4. Oh, yes!! A VERY hard time. I ended up mentioning several.

    Haldir's armor is SUPERB. And YES!!!! I love that- it's like the Red Vest of Power and Awesomeness. :D Very well put, Kiri!!
