What is everyones favorite mithril miniatures? Not including vignettes or box sets.
My top 5 are M191- Tolwen(elven healer) MS280 -Wulf of Edoras LO26- Faramir M343-Aragorn's leavetaking M275-Oropher(elven king)/M140 Great eagle w/Bilbo,Dori (TIE) This is a tough pick since I really love so many of the other excellent Mithril miniatures
Looking across my half done gaming board, I can see...
- the Sindarin Elf with sword - Elf girl with bow - Fram - Elrohir - Glorfindel - Aragorn with Palantir
I don't have the numbers off-hand, but its the Mithril classics Glorfindel, the clearout sale Elrohir, the collector's Fram, the heroines of middle Earth elf girl, the Lorien series elf with sword (214 or something!)
1) M73 Haradan camel guard-The first Mithril I bought, not knowing anything about them, just liked the fig! Lucky!
2)M157 & M159- Dwarf Royal guards and Infantry. I'm combining these two, because they represent the same Old-School Dwarf warriors that would have made Durin the First proud. The last great strength of the Longbeards! They really look like they can kick some orc ass!
3)M238- The Black Sword Mtd. Turin and the Blacksword series are the reason I began seriously collecting Mithril about six or seven years ago. (Or is it more than that now...?) My favorite Tolkien story and my two favorite Mithril series.
4)M247- Noldor warrior. Same as above. I'm kind of a sucker for all the First Age figs, especially elves. Think this guy would make a great Tuor if he had an axe!
5)M273- Cirdan at Gorgoroth. I think this is one of the most interesting elf figs. Very different than the others, with the wavy bastard sword, and a beard!?! I like seeing Cirdan in the wartime conciliare roll, as opposed to just the guy who shoves off boats full of Elves leaving Middle-Earth Of course now there's LR8 too, but I like this one better, although I am looking forward very much to the new MS Cirdan. Can't get enough of those elves!
well, bombadil, why don't you tell what you want ... maybe there is help out here ... huooom ... let me think for a moment ... . so the "free people", as you called them ... yes ... I've got some ...huooomrhuoooomm .. there it is .... hidden in a box she was ... rhuooom ... M12 she is called ... yes, I remember Huoooommm ... I just had a look ... I've painted her already... so this is a spare one ... hummhommm ... so, if you are in need of a Sindarin elf ... hmmmhumhom ... female scout, I think... just let me know. You can have her
;D ooops, sorry ... I just forgot about the thread .. well, what is favourite and what is rare? ... huom .. I don't think it's the same, is it? .... rhuommm or are there any favourites because they're rare? ... Rhuuuoooomm... I really cannot judge.- No. Each time I hold a Mithril-miniature in my hands to paint it ... huooomm...I always say: this is the best one; as you get close to all the details if you want to paint ... huoommrhuomm .. I cannot sort out any ... it all depends on what characters you like, I think. Some like Elves, some like orcs, etc. I do like all of them !!!!!!!!! huooommm.
