probably.we don't have to take the burden of doing more work than necessary and adressing the same topic double or thrice..
Yeah...maybe we should have started a thread in the costumes section before I started this one...but i'm not sure about the easterlings.their descendants lived in northern eriador and around the sea of rhun so i guess they didn't look like hunns or mongols as many people seem to think.they probably weren't that different in appearance from the edain
Could take some of the costume ideas from Arnold Schwarzenegger's Conan the Barbarian, particularly from the Riders of Doom scene.Yes the cultural expressions are really important.
It looks like we more or less agree - the variations in appearance among the Edain should be greater than between them and the Easterlings. The same goes for the Easterlings.
My problem with the Conan inspiration is the obvious presence of steel. True steel should be late and rare, I think, except for the best of swords.
This (heavily romanticized) depiction of a Gallic leader, Vercengetorix, could be used, as well, for a pre-Eldar influenced human, either Edain or Easterling. View attachment 1091
