    I'm a little confused here, you named this "The Gondor thread", yet half of these pictures are from Rohan or of elves?

    No pics are from rohan, 1 pic is from elves and Gondor is linked to elves in their culture.

    I beg to differ. The painting of the snowed-under village looks very Anglo-Saxon to me, while the other architecture looks Gondorian enough. The beautiful Minas Tirith at Dawn painting from Ted Nasmith is obviously pure Gondor, even if it has a major flaw lore-wise (like several of Nasmith's best work).
    The painting of (I assume) Elrond and Gil-galad leading what looks suspiciously like an elven army, I haven't seen before, it's very nice but really more elven than Gondorian.
    The armor portraits, while roman in origin, have a slightly Anglo-Saxon look about them. The helmet with the long nose guard in particular looks like it could have come from the collection found at Sutton Hoo.
    Don't get me wrong, most of the things you posted belong in "The Gondor thread", I'm just a little confused by the things which are clearly out of place, especially considering the rich bounty of Tolkien related art which can be found on the internet.

    Granted, the picture is still dominated by Elves but there is some Gondorian as well with the White Tree banner behind Elrond.

    The imagelink name indicates Gondor Civil War (although the source is a wiki for fanfiction on LOTR), but I'm not sure Elves took part in that.
    If I were to judge from the picture itself, I'd thought it was Elrond, Glorfindel and the Rivendell part of the Last Alliance army and then a bannercarrier (possibly even Elendil?) with the White Tree banner next to them.

    Anyway:



    I'm looking forward to see LotrO's take on the Gondorian armor, especially for the Citatel Guard and the Rangers of Ithilien.

    Great pics Elrantiri.

    Also the pics that are Anglo Saxon are in fact Constantinople Late roman design, which I think Gondor is like in the Third Age.

    Feel free to post any pics from Gondor guys.

    As an artist, I really, really dislike it when people link images of my work and do not add a name or a link to the website of the artist.

    I recommend editing your posts to include the artists. I am a big fan of Tolkien art and I recognize some of these pieces; these artists deserve credit.

    Regards.

    Why not take a look at what suggestions to Gondorian culture, architecture we already have in-game, and expand from that?
