Runes on Orcrist scabbard *possible spoiler* Can't Post

I came across a photo on the Weta Collectors Forum that somewhat clearly shows the runes on the scabbard for Orcrist. Has anyone deciphered them yet? I did a search on the Internet and haven't really found anything.

Here's a link to the photo:

I believe it's in Angerthas, and this is what I've come up with so far.

H_RN * O * _ORW * ITHLUIG * UI * NI * MADWEG * A * SUIG

The only words I can make out in Sindarin are the following:

UI = always, everlasting, eternal
NI = I
MADWEG = gluttonous
A = and

I apologize if this has already been talked about.

But in Lindon Gil-Galad still maintained his power, and Sauron dared not as yet to pass the Mountains of Ered Luin nor to assail the Havens.
