Mithril trivia

those question in the marketplace from master Jacob gave me ideas for a trivia topic so well here it goes...

I'd like to inaugurate with this question :

Among the mithril range, which figurine is an autoportrait of its sculptor ?

the winner asks the next one wink

Re: Mithril trivia

It's M389 Pedlar with wares (and with dog). But I did not know the dog also was his real life pet dog.

Re: Mithril trivia

Ok my question:

we all know M16 Female Ranger is one of the most rare and difficult to find Mithril mini's, if not the most rare. But what specifically caused this miniature to become so rare?

Re: Mithril trivia

the master was fragile and the ankle broke easily thus making it impossible to recast because moulds could not be remade either.

(actually I recently learned the same happened to four moulds in the fantasy army ranges...652 653 658 669, and thus the reeditions of those moulds only count 2 figurines instead of 3 originally, because they were not able to reproduce moulds , the brass master being broken, making them quite rare too)

Re: Mithril trivia

well this leads me to a trivia question , more of a riddle :

"Often thought unarmed, the edge of my faith is nevertheless not a myth, who am I ? "
