beleg --
did he not pursue turin with thingol's blessing? if so, it would not then be a dereliction of duty.


Of course not! But this reflects more on the story than on Beleg. Had it been a "real" realm at the state of war, he would never have been allowed to go AWL (away with leave) in that way. This part of the story seems to be rather an Arthurian romance.

why do you wonder if nellas would have dared approach mablung?

He was based in Menegroth, which Nellas didn't like; and Beleg both knew Nellas and was known as a great friend of Turin. I'm not sure either of the two applied to Mablung.

re gwindor's hand loss.... maedhros lost a hand, and was still depicted as a fierce warrior, yes? beren as well (but perhaps not as much)?


Yes, for sure! My point was that I do not see how Gwindor, fresh after losing his hand, would be able to carry Turin bodily out of the orc-camp with Beleg for so long.
