Middle-earth Hockey League (Ithilien Bowmen 14/18)

Recommended Posts

This is awesome. I love the shire, maybe make the H a different color on the red jersey. Number fonts are awesome! The Avalanche need a little work from a hockey jersey standpoint. I'd say put the same logo sized down a touch into a roundel.... Just an opinion of mine. Obviously don't overdo the roundels though

Well I hate to be that guy but there is a typo on your wordmark. As an LOTR fan though I'm loving this series!

Erebor Mountain Kings

Dwarvish patterns everywhere! This set is an homage the grandious architecture of the dwarves under the mountain. The main logo is taken from the sketch of the throne under the mountain and is the part where the Arkenstone was. As I really like how dwarvish art was rendered during all of the LOTR and hobbit movies I really like the outcome of this set. The color palette is based on the black of volcanic stone, mine gold and the white of the perennial snow on the top of the Lonely Mountain.

Dale Blazers

The City of Dale was completely destroyed and burnt by Smaug the Terrible, dweller of the Lonely Mountain but rised from its ashes when the dragon was eliminated by Bard. For this reasons Blazers was a suiting name for them. The color palette was chosen from the colors of fire and the sandrock of which Dale was built. They sport a pretty simple uniform with the iconic Bacon strips striping.

 

As there is not actual description in Tolkien books I chose to stick with Peter Jackson imagery and colors for the city.

Mordor Black Army

The dark realm of Mordor deserved a dark and gloomy jersey to match. The flaming eye of Sauron was in red on the black banner of the mighty army of Mordor so the team's logo was an obvious one to choose. For the away jersey the team refused to wear white opting for an interesting shade of reddish gray. At first it was thought of adding yellow and  orange to recreate the colors of the ever-active volcano of Mount Doom but then the idea was ditched as the color scheme was felt becoming too bright...

Minas Morgul Nazgul

I've always been fascinated by Peter Jackson's depiction of the fallen city of Minas Ithil, now known as Minas Morgul, with its gloomy yet flashy apparence. Neon blue and green fading into darkness was a perfect match to the home jersey. The logo is taken from the Nazgul banner representing Minas Ithil (Tower of the Moon) now under the dark spells of the Nazgul, hence the skull. The away jersey sports a logo resembling the helmet of the witchking of Angmar, the Nazgul commander. I decided to have just fading colors instead of a proper striping as the Ringwraiths are a simple yet powerful institutions in the ranks of the Dark lord

Bree Brewers

The main feature of the little town of Bree is definitely the Prancing Pony inn. The owner, Mr. Barliman Butterbur, had his beer blessed by Gandalf after his help to the runnaway hobbits.

The color palette was chosen to represent beer, barrels and leather mugs.

Helm's Deep Defenders

The Maple Leafs of Middle Earth! As the fortress of Helm's Deep is renown throughout the continent for the impenetrable stronghold it is, the main focus of the identity of the Defenders is on the mighty walls and battlements. Both the logo and striping follow the same battlement pattern to represent the different levels of the defensive walls. The fortress was built by Helm Hammerhand, hence the name on the jersey.

Anduin Argonath

The team takes the name from the famous two statues called the Pillars of the Kings or Argonath. They mark the entrance in the realm of Gondor on the course of the river Anduin. The big statues, representing Isildur and Anarion, are said to hold both an axe in the books while in the movies it was decided to give a sword to one of the two. The team decided to stick with the movie design as it seemed a neat idea to differentiate more the two. The color palette is based on Fresh Water Light Blue, Granite Ochre and Deep Waterfall Blue.

The usual jersey presentation was changed to make enough room for the main logo, which has a mainly vertical extension, and in the negative space it was possible to add a particular of the shoulder patch A.

liking the Argonath.  The logo is a little big but i'm guessing you did that on purpose.  Great color scheme for it though and the logo rendering of the pillars is great.

Mirkwood Hunters

The team is based in the kingdom of the sylvan elves in Mirkwood forest, whose main occupation is hunting, hence the name. The forest landscape inspired the two tone green color palette. the shoulder patch is inspired by the brooch used by the company of the ring and given to them by Dame Galadriel of Lothlorien,queeen of another sylvan elves settlement.

Ithilien Bowmen

The nickname of the team named after the region of Gondor closest to Mordor could not be anything else than the Bowmen. The company of renegades commanded by Faramir is, in fact, composed mainly of bowmen. The brown tones color scheme is based on the company's own garments, as they need to be stealthy in their scouting terrains. Fort he same reason the away jersey is not white but cream. The hint of red is to remind the sacrifice of many men in defense of Gondor.
