    Huoommmm … welcome … huommmrhuoomm …
    Nice to see you around here … I have to be honest about the fact that by now I still have not decided about the prize … rhuoommm … though there are some thoughts about that having to be reconsidered … hom … I cannot haste everything, you know … last year there was that camel in the test-run and the M16 as a prize …. huoomm … I hope I remember well ….
    yes, time …. rhuoomm … why start that early with a Christmas riddle? … well, it’s just because it takes time until the prize will be sent in time for Christmas to the winner …. rhuoomm.
    enjoy <--- !!! (in case you dare) .... rhuooommmmmmmmmHOmm ... homtedidom

    So here’s the first question (and I didn’t put it myself, I’m just quoting):

    Where is that chariot from?

    Ohhh, hasty you are … let me first explain the rules, please.

    – There’s one point for giving the right answer to a question being first. (alas, I mean the first one who gives a correct answer gets 1 point)

    – The correct answers have to be given here.

    – The one of you who gets most of the points will be called a winner and therefore has access to a prize (which will be worth it).

    – This riddle consists of three (3) parts. The first one is about a chariot and includes different levels.

    Thank you for your interest.

    O.K. I will have a try.
    I suppose that chariot belongs to the universe of: thunderboldmountain miniatures.
    Tell me, Master Ent, am I right ? Or am I wrong ?

    huuoommmm …. first point has just been given to you, Master Rita.de …. huoommm … Tunderbold Mountain was correct …. rhuoommm … keep on guessing there are many other parts to find out about ….. hom … well, others might also try to get some pointy things … as there are many more parts to be reveiled … huoommm :)

    huoommm … sorry … but there was an “h” missing in Tunderbold …. rhuoommm … it was my fault …. gruooohhhmmm … when do Ents ever learn to spell correctly …

    Well, the figures are certainly M170 and the Dunlending from the Wulf of Edoras Fellowship vignette.

    Huoommm … right you are Master Kennako …. so that means two points … ah, did you see how the Dunlending’s hands of that vignette were altered to hold those lashes instead of a shield … rhuoommm … of course you recognized that slight shift in shapes … rhuoommm

    It is coming from: the left … ;)

    Assuming it is aligned with our maps and has hostile intentions, it could be from the Gap of Rohan.

    [Everybody is riddling according to their abilities, I guess, haha.]

    Oh, sorry, Master Protozeus, but Master Rita.de already got that point for finding out that the chariot is from Thunderbold Mountain (which is a company) …. huoommm … so there’s no further point to be given for the chariot-guess … huoomm … sorry ….
    oh, by the way I just turned that piece around …. then the chariot comes from the right …. :)

    Rhuooommmm …. now it’s coming from the right in my latest picture at that Mathom House, Master Protozeus …. huommm … I just had to turn them chariot around … hom … :)
    Why are there no guesses about the sources of the horses? … huoommm … well, the base might be a more serious matter to identify correctly, methinks …. rhuooommmm …

    well, Master Tree, I guess that the horses are also from Thunderbold Mountain, aren´t they ?
    You asked Master Kenakko how the hand is altered to hold the lashes, but- he didn´t answered you . . . :rolleyes:
    I suppose you took an arm of some archer?
    By the way-does this still belong to your riddle, magnificent Ent, or must I overthink my consume on hot chocolate with whiskey
    on this cold german october afternoon ?

    Well, I must confess that the only thing I do not know about this conversion is where the horses do come from. I doubt they are from Thunderbolt mountain as Tom Meier is a better sculptor than this, even though they are well posed. My guesses would be early Ral Partha, Grenadier or even Old Glory. Knowing the provenance of this fine conversion, should I disqualify myself?;) Nice job on the finishing touches, Master Tree!

    Huoommm … thanks … no, you never could disqualify yourself, Master Kenakko …. though I have to say that your guess about the horses is wrong … sorry. Though your doubt that they’re from Thunderbolt mountain is correct , as they are not … Yes, indeed the casting of those horses is not what I would call a good quality … so I had to reshape some parts of the manes with that … ahem … Green stuff … anyway … I said that this first part of the riddle cannot be solved in a minute … ;)
