The idea of having two figures for suggestions this month proved successful as we have gathered 15 fantastic ideas. thanks to all members who took time to submit these ideas. Please remember you can continue to discuss these ideas when you vote. this is a blind vote so you will only see the current state of the vote AFTER you submit your vote. Due to the Easter holidays next week, the vote is a bit shorter than normal. So vote early, don't miss out.
We're rather spoilt for choice this month - just about all of these deserve to be released at some point, so I hope the many inevitable losers will make their suggestions again at the earliest opportunity and have better luck next time. But this time round, I'm for the orc-clobbering action Ent! Great idea, Master Theobald!
"A worthy man, but his memory is like a lumber-room: thing wanted always buried."
one must remember this is very special... as "double figure" months is the new way for mithril to call a "vignette" since larger vignettes would not be economically interesting to produce... and the price would be prohibitive to sell...
considering that such "double figures" months happen less than once a year.... (last winning double figurine was Gandalf and Gwaihir in november 2009, and before that, the "Mounted Knight of Arnor fighting Hillman king" feb 2008 and Annatar vs Celebrimbor in sept. 2007.... and so on)
for me the last real Gold Fellowship vignette was MS455 "Beorn Battles Bolg", in may 2006... that was 5 years ago...
I have no specific desire for any given idea I like many but .... maybe it would be cool to have some little vignettes sometimes (I call vignette a scene with a background included with a detailed basis and a detailed position for all the actors of the scene.)

barliman: Is a shoutbox anything like a swearbox? I mean, do I have to cough up money whenever I use the words "Games Workshop"?

Gildor: I think this shoutbox is a chatbox, it allows for those who are connected on the forum at the same time to chat in real time (provided they read the shoutbox)...

jami: Hello. I'm new here and I would like to know how I can take part in that new opportunity to get my face sculpted to a miniature? It says in email that I must tell my username to Michael O'Brien. It's jami

Michael O'Brien: Hi Jami, Are you a fellowship member? I don't see you on our accounts. If you are not then copy and paste this link: http://www.mithril.ie/PBSCCatalog.asp?CatID=1914170&BrandID=167465

linherdir: Hello all. I'm Jami . That other account (named jami) is my old account and I had forgotten that I had this new one (which is the one with fellowship membership). Sorry for the confusion, I was pretty lost myself since I haven't been very active till now

Michael O'Brien: Hi Linherdir, you should be able to access the thread and post your idea there.

rohangrl: Sigh, I have used a boringly real avatar to keep it simple- hope it's ok. I wanted to use colour but it came out wonky, my strawberry blonde hair looks purple.

Michael O'Brien: There is nothing wrong with a real photo. I used one for years, I only used a cartoon for the novelty of the new designer avatar option to show people what they could do.

tolwen: Wasn't there a tie between Tobold, Golasgil and Vorondil? At least that's what I saw the result and re-casting the vote was not possible anymore. Now Golasgil has one vote more. Was there a technical issue or something else?

Thingol: I'm satisfied with result of this voting... and hidden voting is fine for me... it reduces the possibility of even a small impact on lobbying in the last minute of voting. That can not happen to someone lobbying for a non-canonical figures.

Michael O'Brien: "Was there a technical issue or something else?" No, as the rules state, if a tie exists, Chris tells me who will win and I add one more vote to break the tie. Chris is the sculptor and has the final say. If no tie exists then he keeps out of it.[br]
