I've been searching the CoE galleries to come up with some illustrations to accompany the text.

I'll be posting links to the pictures rather than posting the actual pics.
Although I'm only now starting to post the pics, we are now discussing chapter IV, so what follows is what I've found that would accompany all 4 chapters

Morgoth by invited artist Mikel Janin

Maedhros by invited artist Jenny Dolfen

Balrog by member Aerin_Twilit

Morwen by invited artist Maria Filatova

Beleg Cúthalion by invited artist Eissmann

Thingol and Melian by invited artist Hanna Lehmusto

I realize that these excellent works, linked above, are mostly portraits, but that is all I've found so far for the first 4 chapters.

The Children of Húrin, begun in 1918, was one of three ‘Great Tales’ J.R.R. Tolkien worked on throughout his life, though he never realised his ambition to see it published in his lifetime. Some of the text will be familiar to fans from extracts and references within other Tolkien books but this is the first time the entire story has been presented in its complete form.

As Adam Tolkien elaborated in a recent interview: ‘This is a more difficult question than it seems: As you know, versions and pieces of the story of Húrin and his descendants have been published in various works (The Silmarillion, Unfinished Tales, The Book of Lost Tales, The Lays of Beleriand, etc). The text of The Children of Húrin is in part compiled from these extant texts, and particularly that which appears in Unfinished Tales.

‘But it is a new reworking of the complete story. Many parts of the text will be – if not identical – recognizable to the knowledgeable reader, but there are also pieces that have never appeared before. Also the format of the text, as a standalone and complete text with no editorial commentary to interrupt the tale, should in itself and in my opinion considerably transform the reading experience.

‘The text as a whole can be said to be “new” as it is a recomposition of published texts and other “pieces” that weren’t published previously. The completed puzzle, in a sense.’

The epic of Beowulf, the legends of Sir Gawain were his templates. And while Tolkien could easily spin the simple and uncluttered storytelling of The Hobbit and the opening chapters of The Fellowship of the Ring,
