Strange, certainly. People? Not so sure.

Re: THE TAPROOM 4

Thank you for the kind words, friend Milo, about caring for the patrons of the Pony, as Master Ent and I surely do. But don't be too hard on old Barli, he is a very busy man . . .  . I think we should be nice to him so he doesn't up and retire some day! And he practically lets us decide what to pay for our food and drink, very kind of him for the patrons!

Ok, back to my dark corner for an ale and a smoke.

That hole for 621 is a pain is the a... really hmm
I am also wondering whether I shall start new MZ set or keep "Fellowship II" set on going using Ref numbers ?
For instance MZ648 is a vignette without MV reference.

Re: THE TAPROOM 4

Excellemt stuff. It's difficult to know what to do with the "ambiguus refs, isn't it? Beregond at the ~Black Gate is a vignette without gaving an MV ref, for instance.

Do we know why the Elfhelm figure ended up as 632 rather than 621...?

I do think that this Imrahil-version is one of the best Mithril-figures released this year ... huomtidomm ... wonderful ...
by the way, one shouldn't place it next to the older Christmas-2000-52mm-version .... rhommm ...

I think it's the butterfly stroke, Master Tree.

No, don't remember that one, Master Tree. You obviously have a more retentive memory for minutiae than I do!

Re: THE TAPROOM 4

well Ladies and gentlemen, I think it's time for me to wish you all a very merry Christmas, as I don't think I'll be available from now and for at least two days. I hope you'll have a great time, don't eat nor drink too much at least not on master innkeeper's tab or I fear he'll risk bankrupcy smile

cya around all!

Re: THE TAPROOM 4

huoommm ... well, thank you Master Hsf62, I enjoyed it .... rhooOOOmmm ... until yesterday when I started to assemble that horrible Galadriel-vignette and those seven (!!!) parts of that mounted Aragorn, which I think is ridiculous ... huomrrrrhuom ... once again that idiotic upper part of those reins as a minor reason for my disappointment ... huom ... what are those sprues between the horse's legs good for? ... alas ...
Master Barliman, I need a very large bowl of my favourite liquid right now, please ... huom

Re: THE TAPROOM 4

Sounds like you need it.

I haven't looked at the Aragorn figure closely yet. Is it really seven parts? Wow. As an aside, one thing I have noticed about the MZ mounted figures is that their horses look like they've been at the gym rather too often, or are on hefty doses of steroids. Or both, perhaps. I cam't think of a technical reason why they need to be so bulky - does anybody know if there is one?

Re: THE TAPROOM 4

I hope that they will not in nearest future start produce fully "crushed" miniatures... I do not understand why such a small figure need to have 7 parts...

btw... in my last shipment they forget to put into a parcel arm with sword from the MZ638 hmm so now I have zombie with one arm roll

Re: THE TAPROOM 4

huoomm ... I complained on that official website a very long time ago that the new "sculpting era" comes along with some (or even many?) inconveniences for us collectors who in the end ... gruoomm ... have to pay for that ... hoomm ... well, by now there's no need to buy those figures once they're released, as since a year or two there's always about three or four discount-sales with up to 50% offered by the company within a year ... ggrrruom ...

well, dear Thingol, using the word "crushed" in this context is absolutely correct ... huom ... I would like to know who decides where to butcher those figures obvious randomly into several parts for the spin-moulds ? ... rhuom ... and why ... alas

huom ... I really do like this year's Christmas figure very much ... er, that Christmas-figure-kit as it is for the first time in Mithril history ... huom ... it came as a surprise to encourage you to do some "antique-finishing" yourself after assembling ... wonderful idea that was ... hooom? ... grohuoommmmmmm

Master Barliman, I don't worry about the proportions and poses of them horses any more ... sorry ... huom ... I'm a bit more worried about my empty bowl, yer know ... huom

huom ... please never ask me about that horror-vignette, please ... hom!

Re: THE TAPROOM 4

I shall never mention it again. Now, just stand there and drink your "water" slowly and calmly. You sound as if you're getting a bit hasty.
