Hello? . . . Helllooooo?? Well it is very quiet in here these days. Perhaps everyone is out enjoying Spring, maybe taking a boat ride on the river.

Well, I guess I'll just grab myself an ale and retire to my table in the dark corner. Yes, yes, Master Barkeep--I will leave some coin in the till. ;-)

Hello Master Tom, Just back from the 'Land soon to be behind the Wall' wink and have just placed my order for a couple of the Boromir boats. I was panicking a bit in case they sold out, as using the internet wasn't recommended (I didn't have it anyway, but could've used someone else's).

Anyhow, if anyone is around to serve, a round on me please wink

Re: THE TAPROOM 4

I'll be interested to know how you get on with constructing the boats, since views on their difficulty - or otherwise - seem contradictory. Beer is coming!

Thank you for the beer Sir wink.

I haven't started any serious building on these yet (Tom's additions) as at the moment I will wait for Boromir to arrive and do a 'job lot', so not too sure what construction will be like. Legolas and Gimli were fiddly getting the legs on was a pain, but I have only toyed around with them while awaiting the set. Re the boats I will probably replace the 'chunky' seat with a thin wedge of plastic card (I don't have anything in front of me so can't quote).

I think Tom discussed with Chris the 'issues' with Legolas and Gimli so maybe these points have been resolved. Hopefully a report on progress soon smile.

Now, how to scratch-build the Argonath!!!!!!!!!!!

Re: THE TAPROOM 4

huoomm ... ah yes, Master Ddaines, so you confirm my experience of assembling the Legolas and Gimli of the MX-boat ... huom ... fitting those legs in a correct angle was a pain indeed, as you correctly called it ... rhuom ... see, there is no problem at all attaching all those fine details such as ropes, swords and luggage to the boats ... huommhom ... that is what even my old twigs can do easily .... HuuUOMmm ... ah yes, I can confirm that the Man in the Dark Corner discussed some matters about casting with Master Tubb ... hom ... though ... er, in the end at least the four Hobbits were casted in one piece ... huom ... but then again you'll have some fun in assembling the Boromir figure accordingly ... alas ... but then you will not have any problems with replacing those horrible seats of the third boat ... huom ... they're casted seperately (though I cannot see a single reason why) ... huomm ... with the first boat that was no problem, I think, as they were covered and hidden by the figures and some pieces of some luggage ... huom ... rhuom ... it was a bit more difficult with the second boat, as more of the surface of those "seats" are visible ... gruhomhommm ... but, Master Ddaines, with the third boat it will be easier for you to replace the seats as those solid-massive-metal blocks are now suddenly casted seperately though still there are still no details (surface structure) visible ... hom ... if there's anyone around who can help me and try to explain this ridiculous decision I would be very much pleased .... rhuu°Oommm ... two metal blocks are benches in a very light rowing boat ... huom ... must be Elven magic involved .... rhuotidommm ... no, I really do not want to criticize at all as I do not understand Elven magic and never did .... huom

Huom ... but what is of most importance to me is to point out the fact that our dear fellow and friend in the dark corner here decided to complete those Lorien boats immediately without us having to cope with years of suggestions and even more re-suggestions on the Mithril Board ... hooom ... that would have taken at least about ten years, I'm afraid ... hom ... and Master Twrich managed to have the boats released at a very fair price when you consider that they're MX-releases .... HOM ! ... thank you so very much for that, Master Twrich .....

so, Master Barliman, whenever your loyal regular in the dark corner wants a beer or some weed, please give him plenty of that ... huom ... at least until the end of this year I will pay for that, of course, as I came across some golden coins ... hah ...er ... rhuom

And for that, Master Twrich will ever have my grateful appreciation and thanks as believe me, it has saved me (will save me wink ) a much anticipated headache had I had to stick to my original plan which was to convert other figures, which wasn't going well if I'm honest (I had purchased an extra three of Boromir's funeral boat, but that's life I guess, and the Boromir's are going to be used for other projects).

Hopefully the two dioramas I have in mind for these boats will appear sooner rather than later wink
