Here is a list of sets I would like to see done after the vignettes, and maybe the box set of the three trolls from the hobbit.
Heros of the Pelenor Fields: -Prince Imrahil (on foot, fighting stance) -Knight of Dol Amroth with sword and shield on foot -Knight of Dol Amroth with standard (mounted) -Knight of Dol Amroth on foot with spear and shield -Knight of Dol Amroth on horse with shield and sword -Eowyn and Merry on foot in Rohan armor -Faramir on horse -Beregond -Eomer on foot with flag of Rohan -Wounded Rohan Spearman or Archer
A Box set of the “Armies of Gondor”- With a special, Mounted Imrahil figure (in a regal pose). Forlong the fat, Derufin, Duilin, Hirluin, each with a warrior of their particular region.
Allies of Sauron: -Witchking on foot w/ mace -Gothmog lieutenant of Morgul -Easterling Chieftan with sword and shield -Easterling Warrior with axe -Easterling Warrior with scimitar -Black Men of Far Harad (described as half-trolls with white eyes and red tongues) -Harad cavalrymen- like the ones depicted in Tengwar -Corsair Commander -Corsair Warrior with eye patch and large hook for a hand -Corsair Warrior with scimitar and shield
The Grey Company: -Halbarad Dunadan- on horse, (for all rangers of the north, have a small helm, and ring mail underneath his cloak, with a star shaped brooch), holding "the standard from the Lady of Rivendell". -Aragorn- mounted on his horse -Elrohir- on horse, with mail armor on -Elladan- either on foot or on horse, with similar armor of Elrohir's -Ranger of the North- holding a sword. -Ranger of the North- wielding a spear -Ranger of the North- holding a bow -King of the Dead- with battered armor, and holding a shield and a sword. -Dead Warrior of Dunharrow- with tattered standard, and a sword -Dead Warrior of Dunharrow- with battered armor and a spear.
Battle of Fangorn: -Treebeard- with stone in hand ready to throw -Ent holding small orc in hand -Ent with his fists out -Quickbeam throwing a rock (his arm with the rock in back, leg in the air) -Huorn either striking, or has an Orc entangled in its branches -Dunland warrior with bow -Half orc with bow -Uruk weilding a great axe -Warg rider with bow releasing an arrow -Warg rider charging with a scimitar in the air, possibly with a shield.
For producing Thorin and Company, I was thinking that figures with their instruments (harp, flutes, clarinets, etc) when they are playing at Bag End would be neat (and a good way to tell them apart - 13 dwarves in hoods would look pretty similar).

King Thranduil? Thats M63. We don't stock it. WE do stock The Elven King, look at The Hobbit Boxed Set or MCD5 (Classics) We ship to you so that is not a problem. Check out mmp.perilousrealm.com and see if they have it to trade. You can post your request on our Collectors Corner, just tell us the M-series number and name that you want.
Check Ebay as well, Do a search for Mithril Miniatures.
I would like to see an Eowyn miniature with her actually wearing a dress. Technically, all the figures I have found are really the Dernhelm side of her. I don't think she would wear a strapless dress as they are just not functional. She seems more like a down to earth, get things done kind of girl than a princess type. ;D Plus, she had to help Theoden around - strapless is no good for that.
A figure of Beregond would be nice too. I know there's a Christmas figure of him, but they don't count 'cause the odds of me getting any Christmas figures are slim (and it's a different scale).
I would like to see Beorn as bear in the Battle of five armies at that moment when he was crushing Bolg! There´s a nice comic-book by David Wenzel with a dramatic scene of this turning point of the battle . . .
Hmmm, now I`m thinking about it . . . . "Yes!": all the other dwarves of Thorin´s company would be beautiful. I would bet it would be top-seller to create it like a caravan, troding trough Misty Mountains. Together with some ponies and baggage. A new Gandalf with them, keeping his hat with his hands on his head, fighting against snow and storm. Bilbo sticking in a mess of snow. Kili and Fili as pathfinders who found a roof over their heads, pointing at it. Bifur and Bofur pushing and tracking some of the ponies towards the shelter of that cave! Some - being frigthened by the great Stone-Giants - staring through storm and mist to the tops of the mountains above them . . . One should feel the fear and despair which had befallen them!
In terms of a series, I mentioned this in the Fellowship, but it's probably more appropriate out in the 'open', so to speak! What do people think of a 'Council of Elrond' series? It's a pivotal moment in the story, and could make for some nice dioramas. It also includes some characters that don't get a mention much elsewhere in LOTR such as Gloin, and it's a good opportunity for an Elrond miniature that isn't reading a book/scroll (of course I'm just joking - there are the mighty fine M270 and LR6 with Elrond all kitted out for action). Galdor could get a run, asking for proof of the ring's nature, Aragorn revealing Narsil, Boromir arguing to use the ring against Sauron, or telling the tale of Gondor's defeat in Ithilien, Gandalf looking contemplative or speaking 'ash nazg durbataluk' and so on, Glorfindel and Erestor mulling over what to do, Bilbo making his offer of taking the ring himself, Sam hiding in a corner! 'Tis just an idea though, and perhaps a little left-field, but thought I'd put it out there.
Regarding the Cof E, this is also a series I would love to see - after collecting (but not painting the majority!!) Mithrils since the beginning, I have resolved to finally turn my attention to my Mithril collection.
As a diorama/vignette modeller rather than a role-player this is a scene from the book I want to try and at the moment I am trying to decide best ways to do it.
One of the main problems being a lack of seated figures (I have the Prancing pony card players but they are already accounted for) so if this series gets the go ahead I for one would be very interested.
This is a bit of a random thought, but I was thinking about a diorama of Pelennor Fields the other day, and was wondering how to add some slain orcs/free peoples. I'm not sure if it would be a popular idea or not, but perhaps some orcs/people who didn't so well at Pelennor?
Has there ever been a Haldir, Orophin (and whatever the third guy is called) mini, or set of minis?
The other shot in the dark I would make would be: How about a different "look" for the Elves? A set of elf minis that have them looking lordly, imperious, unearthly, and without those triangular loin cloths! Maybe a series: the Elves of Lindon (to grab a notion randomly) representing maybe five or six different types of Elves -
- Grey Elf warriors: well dressed, with flowing robes and cloaks, but dressed for a chillier clime than the rather summery looking Lorien Elves. Something like the illustration of Celebrimbor from Page 22 of the Lorien sourcebook from Iron Crown - only without the plate armour. Armed with longswords, spears and bows.
- Grey Elf nobles: male and female - either to belong to a Wandering Company, or as backgrounds in a Rivendell or Grey Havens diorama. Again, rich clothes, and warm. Something like the Glorfindel figures, only with more detail.
- Grey elf marinners: uh, no idea. Guys who man the Swan ships.
- Grey elf scouts: Rangery type guys
- Grey Elf captains: a selection of three important grey elf nobles - ship captains, scout captains, warrior captains. Something like that.
Hell, while we are here, how about a few more elves of Lorien to go with the Battle of Mirkwood series: some nobles like the guys we see on the cover of the Lorien book by ICE, and those two elves that Galadriel is helping. Oh and a "warden" character like the one we see on page 27 of said book.
(The Lorien book can be downloaded from www.merp.com for, uh, purely research purposes.)
I'm completelly agree with Mr. aelfwine. The idea of having more elves is one of my dreams. I would like to see elves with cloaks: elven spearmen with cloaks and almond shape shields, with no armour or maybe only a helmet. I would also like to see elven cavalry: In one of my messages, I said Noldor cavalry but due to license problems, lets say "high elves cavalry" or just elven cavalry.
Like aelfwine, I also recomend you the merp webpage. I like this kind of "research" where you can download the modules with no problems...
Aelfwine, I will increase your Karma; just keep researching.

I concur with Gilgaladtolkien...I think a "Battle of Five Armies" as the next M-series would be superb (or even LT...Helm's Deep was one of my favorites)! An excellent list I couldn't really add to, expect perhaps adding Gandalf and an armored Bilbo If the next M-series gets put to a vote, "Battle of Five Armies" has mine.
Hi Chris,Good Job for the "Death of Boromir". This is one of the most beautiful vignettes in the M series. But I agree with those who think that twelve vignettes per year is too expensive. We could dedicate each month for one of the 'type of figure': january will be a vignette, february will be a single ... And three vignettes for nine singles. So, we could buy nine single for a little price to rest in the fellowship and buy the three vignettes if we have money for this. It's just an idea but it will be a compromise and the vote will be more equal. ;DAnd Queen Beruthiel with cats is as a single figure. ;D Krosbone
Oh, well, here I can get rid of my ideas for this time: the meeting of Aragorn and the thirty rangers of the north in Rohan. Read this:
"Rohan? Rohan did you say? That is a glad word. We seek that land in haste from long afar." "You have found it," said Eomer. "When you crossed the fords yonder you entered it. But it is the realm of Théoden the King. None ride here save his leave. Who are you? And what is your haste?" "Halbarad Dúnadan, Ranger of the North I am," cried the man. "We seek one Aragorn son of Arathorn, and we heard that he was in Rohan." "And you have found him also!" cried Aragorn. Giving his reins to Merry, he ran forward and embraced the newcomer. "Halbarad!" he said. "Of all joys this is the least expected!"
And listen what Gimli said about them: " They are a strange company, these newcomers," said Gimli. "Stout men and lordly they are, and the Riders of Rohan look almost as boys beside them; for they are grim men of face, worn like weathered rocks for the most part, even as Aragorn himself; and they are silent."
Wouldn´t it be nice to see that meeting of friends and these "real" men, these powerful allies?
Yes, I am really interested in things of the North - the Northmen of Dale (the Battle of the Five Armies series idea rocks), the idea of the Dunedain is something I've wanted for many a year, and my idea of northern Sindarin elves all revolve around the same sort of idea.
So let's all gang up and bang down the doors! hehe
Hi, I am new here and am still figuring out the boards but I would love to see Boromir dead, in the elven boat with his broken horn on his lap, the weapons of his enemies piled around him, floating down the river. What do you all think?
