The Balrog Award

The Balrog Award

Given in 1984 for THE ARMAGEDDON RAG. One nomination, one win for each of these.

Funny story about this award, this image is not MY trophy. I actually never received my trophy. Much like poor Vermithrax (a hanging model I had made some years back), my Balrog was destroyed in an auto accident when the awards organizer was driving to the post office to mail it. He thereafter moved to Oman and folded the awards, and my shattered Balrog was never replaced.
