Mighty strike by rinthcog Mighty strike by rinthcog
Here is the High King of the Noldor Fingolfin dodging Morgoths sledge hammer as he prepares an attack.
"...Then Morgoth hurled aloft Grond, the Hammer of the Underworld, and swung it down like a bolt of thunder.
But Fingolfin sprang aside, and Grond rent a mighty pit in the earth, whence smoke and fire darted. Many times
Morgoth essayed to smite him, and each time Fingolfin leaped away, as a 'lightning shoots from under a dark cloud; and
he wounded Morgoth with seven wounds, and seven times Morgoth gave a cry of anguish...." J.R.R. Tolkien, "The Silmarillion"

Morgoth (Melkor), is well depicted as the dark lord with his huge form and red eyes, the crown bearing the Simarils, and the mighty Grond. Fingolfin's only hope is his speed and skill.

Very epic! I would like very much to see a film (or miniseries) of The Silmarillion...

What an interesting take on Morgoth! We so rarely see his face depicted.
