    It is NOT allowed to costomize the Box Set. :|
    On the other side, no advantage of magnificent columns, or statues, or additional furnitures . . .

    Just clearly sets 😎

    Ha, ha, you want to know that, David don´t you . . . :D
    I have already checked the whole world wide web . . . 😎

    And found an answer . . . 😎

    Well, I hopefully will receive that box if those flying thingies will be in time . . . And I am glad to be in such a P P C !

    PPC means actually: “professional painting community”

    Ha, Ha, Master Turambar :D, I shall search just to see if the answers found can be expanded on.

    I will keep my fingers crossed that the flying thingies will be flying to all parts of the globe where the PPC dwell;) There seems some good support for the idea so far.

    Snow is falling, all is calm, the flying thingies are sleeping in their hangars.

    I ahve to say, that I have received the “Blue Box” !
    Because it is my first “Blue Box” ( no, I haven´t ordered the UP . . .) I am full with overflowting positiv expressions.
    This box design is absolutely stunning! In marketing ways absolutely perfect. Good choice, mithril !
    Concerning what´s inside: …… no words.

    I also received the “White Council”-vignette yesterday. The blue box is the same as with the MX-UP. Very nice indeed. As I already mentioned over in the Pony this vignette is a real challenge for painters. Wonderful !
    But what do you all think about the material of the floor and the table? I wonder. Obviously the floor has to be a kind of stone-floor, maybe even marble, as someone else suggested. Nice idea. But what about the table? I think it could be made of the same material, but a wooden table could also be possible. But does that match? Though also the chairs are wooden, aren’t they?Unfortunately we don’t know what material(s) The Man was thinking of.
    I’m interested in your thoughts about this matter.

    For me, I will go for marble floor and marquetry table.

    I am still waiting for the vignette…. not received yet

    as for floor and table I think they should be seen as a whole, as if the table was sculpted as an extension of the floor… I can’t imagine it anything but Marble…

    now marble is not necessarily white… it could be black gold striken, white light blue striken, red, white striken… (some porphiric design)

    As I often imagined (but that concerns me alone) that the White Council may have taken place in Orthanc… (since it was supposed to be somewhat “ruled” by Saruman when he was still sane… I’d go for Black marble…. but that’s my own idea though I think I will make it black and gold striken (which is quite a challenge!) Beside, as this White Council was about dire news, having it in dark, to reflect the events may be a good way to render the mood of this council… and black marble with gold is very noble and subtile…

    (the fact it is black has nothing to do with PJ movie, Orthanc is fully made of Black stone it is a fact)

    well that was my two cents about it…

    Marble also come to my mind. But: a kind of marble.
    Gildor´s thought about Otrthanc is very interested indeed, though I have a similar imagination.
    So you are not alone Master Gildor !

    Thinking clearly, nothing else would make sense as what Gildor pointed out:
    Saruman was the leader of the White Council and his host was Isengard.
    So- what is your imagination of the inside of Orthanc?!

    Nevertheless- I think it could be somekind of “The Opposite” of the material the Tower of Isengart was build. A anti-pole.

    There is something which different people know as “brazilian marble”! Google for it and you will find something blue . . . 😎
