Pretty exhaustive, I must say.

 

I thought I'd seen just about every reference image over the years, but there's a lot of stuff in here that I don't remember seeing before, or at least not in this resolution.

 

Plus, it's nice to have it all in one single album. 

 

Notable features:

  • The Witch-king's initial armor design in full view
  • Mounted Second Age Númenorean!
  • Great Uruk scout references
  • Great Orc references
  • Fantastic Isildur stuff
  • Théoden's armor
  • Haradrim armor
  • Unused concepts for Elven helmets
  • Unused concepts for Olog-hai
  • Great detail on all special Hobbit costumes
  • Faramir's armor

Thank you Math.

About WK, personally I think the initial design would made more sense lore-wise but the movie one is more eye-candy.

Wow, this is good. Interesting, very Eastern-looking WK design.

I love seeing unused concept art, just to see what direction things might've gone. I've seen a lot of these on the DVD extras though, but can't recall those elven helmets.

Imo, many of those helmets feel "too fantastic" and so unrealistic, I'm very impressed with the final result, if we are to think they started from those.

Yeah those helmets look similar to Warhammer Wood elves' helmets.
Which gives me an idea to make a mod of Warhammer :D

Many thanks for posting these! :thumbsupsmiley:

Do I understand correctly that these are all images from the extended edition bonus material galleries?

Not all, I think. Some of them I've never seen on the EE Appendices.
