Springtime For Sauron! Plus Classic-Hammer Ogres & Trolls

All your base belongs to Sauron!
Where'd the cheese go? I dont know.

This post has reached a milestone.
Sauron himself has finally made it to the blog!
Lets hear it for the Dark Lord folks…

♩ ♪ ♫ ♬ Springtime for Sauron and Ered Lithui
Barad-Dur is happy and gay
We're marching to a faster pace
Look out, here comes the Orc-ish race!

Springtime for Sauron and Ered Lithui
The Dark Lands are a fine land once more!
Springtime for Sauron and Ered Lithui
Watch out, Gondor… we're going on tour! ♩ ♪ ♫ ♬

Rolf: I was born in Goblindorf and that is why they call me Rolf

Mel: Dont be stupid, be a smarty, come and join the Nazgul Party!


Here is the Dark Lord of Mordor!
He sits upon his throne and broods in the Tower of Barad Dur – the Dark Tower.
That throne reminds me of Harry Potter (I forget which one) where a bas-relief sculpture shows the oppressed muggles suffering under the glory of the wizarding elite.
Look, every Dark Lord needs suffering souls for orthopedic support.


Sauron calls for his trusted lieutenants.
Mounted Ring Wraith and the Mouth of Sauron.

Sauron: Raise some elite troops of Mordor to serve as my personal travelling Household Guard!

Mouth of Sauron: Which troops are those, Mi'lord?

Sauron: Surprise me!

Mouth of Sauron: And where are you planning to go exactly?

Sauron: I think I will go stretch my legs… up north.

Mouth of Sauron: This isnt Sparta and you dont need to go to war yourself, Mi'lord. You got plenty of generals out there right now!

Sauron: Oh dont be a spoil-sport! Whats the use of being the Dark Lord if I cant have any fun? Now go!

So off the lieutenants go to find some elite troops worthy of being a bodyguard for the Dark Lord…


While I do love C Series Trolls, I love the 90s ones just as much.
That Troll on the right is in deep thought.
Should I throw rock? Or eat it?

Loved it!

Who makes (made?) the nifty Sauron figure? Great work as always, Mars!

It's Citadel.

Thanks buddies.
Yes, for some reason I was on a Mel Brooks marathon while I was sick last week.

And thank you, Sauron is indeed Citadel.
