Announcement from Mithril on FB - Re'; Dol Amroth set

"We found seven box sets of Dol Amroth knights and foot soldiers during a stock take. These are unprimed metal figures, 26 in each box. M484 to M493. This is a great opportunity to grab these before they sell out permanently."

Re: Announcement from Mithril on FB - Re'; Dol Amroth set

Alas ... there was a lot of complaints when they were released. The riders were not casted seperately from the horses. That happened for the first time if I remember well. Then it was a desaster concerning that primer which "fell off" in parts.
The figures are quite nice, I think.

Yes, you are correct re the riders being cast on the horses, I would have purchased more of them had there been an easy swap of riders sad

Re: Announcement from Mithril on FB - Re'; Dol Amroth set

Well the difference here is that this set is unprimed actually which may result paradoxally, in better quality... still the fact the riders + horse are one piece remains a problem.
I would have bought one set but 130 for figurines I already have is too much...

Aren't these the same figures that were sold separately in the M480 range?

I still haven't painted my DA knights. Well, I painted some of them. But eventually.

I would recommend them without primer. Vallejo grey or Citadel Grey Seer does the job perfectly well.
