Re: Once upon a time Mithril Maniac / Myth'Image

Il y a peu, quand Thingol demanda qui étais-je, j’aurais pu lui répondre Mormegil…

Lorsque nous avons créé Myth’Image / Mithril Maniac, rapidement l’idée d’avoir un avatar s’imposa à nous tout naturellement.

Pour Jacques, ce serait Meneldil. Une évidence !

Quant à moi…Dans un premier temps, j’optais pour Valendil, le plus jeune des fils d’Isildur.
Mais secrètement, nous avions convenu avec Jacques que les deux initiales de nos avatars devaient être M M !
M M comme Mithril Maniac !
Nous étions les deux principaux pères créateurs de l’association et du fanzine, c’était une façon de se les approprier pour toujours, pensions-nous.
Quelle drôle d’idée aujourd’hui !
Nous étions encore jeunes et fiers de nos desseins.
Nous avions oublié que nous ne sommes que de passage sur cette Terre, rien ne nous appartient réellement. On n’en prend conscience que plus tard…

Alors, moi aussi je serai roi du Gondor ! Je serai Mormegil !

Il y a peu, en regardant la vitrine de Jacques, un de mes passe-temps favoris, une figurine posée allongée et sans socle, attira mon regard.
Mais où se trouvait donc son socle ? Et ses acolytes ?
Une nouvelle fouille s’imposait !
Je devais me rendre à nouveau dans mon exigu réduit et en extirper la substantifique moelle !
Chouette, une nouvelle aventure allait débuter !
Il me fallait au moins une demi-journée pour tout retourner, je devais donc m’organiser en amont ! big_smile
Casque de spéléologue, avec sa lampe halogène s’il vous plait, genouillère, coudière, gourde, biscuits, corde de rappel ? Peut-être pas wink Bref, tout l’attirail nécessaire pour survivre quelques heures dans ce cloaque.

Après quelques temps et moult efforts (sortir les nombreux cartons de figurines et surtout bien mémoriser leur emplacement, avoir en tête la bonne configuration du lieu, c’est essentiel. C’est bien beau de les extirper, faut-il être ensuite en capacité de les replacer correctement ! Et ce n’est pas une mince affaire si on y prend pas garde ! ), j’obtenais ma récompense !
Je pouvais donc manger mes biscuits préférés en toute tranquillité !
Enfin non !
Je ne réussis pas à trouver le socle du pauvre errant. Ses deux acolytes oui, mais pas le socle. Certainement égaré pendant le transfert de la collection de Jacques.

Alors que faire ? En trouver un autre et rajouter ainsi sa propre petite touche à l’ensemble !

Mais de quelles figurines s’agit-il ? Et quel lien avec le début du paragraphe ?
J’y arrive ! N’oubliez pas que vous êtes sur « Once upon a time Myth’Image… »…

Donc, il y a quelques décennies, dans la cité des Ducs de Bretagne, trois jeunes gens se réunissaient toutes les semaines dans un café, autour d’une bonne bière (cela me semble irréaliste aujourd’hui…satanée Covid), pour partager leur passion et, toujours en quête de défi, ils décidèrent un jour de peindre les figurines d’une saynète où chacun pourrait incarner un des personnages, qu’ils imaginaient être trois frères !    Elendur, Aratan et Ciryon  aux champs d’Iris !

Click to close

Le projet n’aboutit pas ! Je ne me souviens pas pour quelle(s) raison(s), mais Jacques, de son côté, avait commencé à peindre son « personnage ». Le voici en photo.

Click to close

Hervé et moi, avions sans doute d’autres projets plus urgents.

Mais aujourd’hui et comme il n’est jamais trop tard, je m’en vais réparer cet oubli.
J’ai déjà trouvé un socle qui conviendra bien au défi, celui de représenter les Champs d’Iris.

Click to close

J’ai ébavuré les figurines, puis je les ai sous couchées. Elles ont ensuite trouvé leur bouchon de Champagne, qui avait déjà intégré la boîte noire de pellicule de photos argentiques. Indispensable à ma technique de peinture...wink
Il ne me reste plus maintenant qu’à trouver le schéma de couleur qui conviendra le mieux à ces illustres descendants d’une famille iconique de la Terre du Milieu (c’est le lien avec le début du post big_smile).
Mais je ne sais pas pourquoi, j’ai déjà ma petite idée la dessus…
Mon petit jardin m’accapare de plus en plus ces derniers temps…une véritable source d’inspiration ! wink

Click to close
Not long ago, when Thingol asked who I was, I could have answered him Mormegil ...

When we created Myth’Image / Mithril Maniac, the idea of ​​having an avatar quickly came to us.

For Jacques, it would be Meneldil. An evidence !

As for me ... At first, I opted for Valendil, the youngest of Isildur's sons.
But secretly, we had agreed that the two initials of our avatars had to be M M!
M M like Mithril Maniac.
We were the two main founding fathers of the association and the fanzine, it was a way of making them our own forever, we thought.
What a funny idea today!
We were still young and proud of our designs.
We had forgotten that we are only passing through this Earth, nothing really belongs to us, we only realize it later ...

So I too will be King of Gondor! I will be Mormegil!

Not long ago, looking at Jacques' window, one of my favorite hobbies, a figurine lying down elongated and without a base, caught my eye.

But where was its base? And his acolytes?
A new search was called for !

I had to go back to my cramped space and pull out the substantial marrow!
Great, a new adventure was about to begin!
It took me at least half a day to get everything back, so I had to plan ahead!
Caving helmet, with its halogen lamp please, knee pad, elbow pad, water bottle, cookies, abseiling rope? Maybe not lol
In short, all the necessary gear to survive a few hours in this cesspool.

After some time and a lot of effort (take out the many boxes of figurines and especially memorize their location, have in mind the correct configuration of the place, it is essential. to replace them correctly! And it is not an easy task if you are not careful!), I got my reward! So I could eat my favorite cookies in peace!
Actually no ! I couldn't find the base of the poor wanderer. His two acolytes yes, but not the base. Certainly lost during the transfer of Jacques' collection.

So what to do? Find another one and add your own little touch to the whole thing

But which figurines are these ? And what is the link with the beginning of the paragraph ?
I arrive there ! Remember, you are on "Once upon a time Myth'Image ..." ...

So, a few decades ago, in the city of the Dukes of Brittany, three young people met every week in a cafe, around a good beer (that seems unrealistic to me today ... damn Covid), to share their passion and, always in search of challenge, they decided one day to paint the figurines of a playlet where each one could play one of the characters, which they imagined to be three brothers!
Elendur, Aratan and Ciryon to Iris Fields!
Photo
The project does not succeed! I don't remember for what reason (s), but Jacques, for his part, had started to paint his “character”. Here it is in photo.
Photo
Hervé and I probably had other more urgent projects.

But today and since it is never too late, I am going to make up for this oversight.
I have already found a base that will suit the challenge well, that of representing the Iris Fields.
Photo
I deburred the figures, then lay them down. They then found their Champagne cork which had already integrated the black box of film of silver photos. Indispensable to my painting technique.
Now all I have to do is find the color scheme that will work best for these illustrious descendants of an iconic Middle-earth family (this is the link to the beginning of the post).
But I don't know why, I already have my little idea on it ...
My little garden is taking over more and more ... a real source of inspiration ! wink

Re: Once upon a time Mithril Maniac / Myth'Image

Hello Mithril Nautes !

I hope you are well.

I was looking for an orc shield to decorate my play, "The death of Isildur at the Gladden fields".
I found this one.

Can you tell me if this is a Mithril referenced shield?
Thank you in advance.

Re: Once upon a time Mithril Maniac / Myth'Image

I'll check this, Master Jacob. There once were 4 ""original Accessoire packs" (randomly filled) offered by Mithril for a short time to empty some shelves. Quite a lot of parts all in all. I will let you know.

Re: Once upon a time Mithril Maniac / Myth'Image

Ah, Master Fabrice Jacob, this evening I checked all that stuff and found the shield you are looking for (unprimed, of course). It's not a recast, just original Mithril. Don't worry any more, it'll be yours. - 4 packs of shields and other detail-pieces was hard to check. That's why it took so long. I still wonder why once no one cared about those "Accessorie packs" offerred by that company for a penny or less.
I'll contact you soon. But I cannot haste ... as you might have learned by now

Re: Once upon a time Mithril Maniac / Myth'Image

Those accessories packs were great indeed, master Ent, I think I have one somewhere but alas, everything is still in boxes in my cave...
Hopefully I was able to track down the shield origin by doing a very speccial research inquiry on my base (not available directly yet) to track down all figurines which possess one (or more) shields as separate parts.
Searching by parts is cool sometimes smile

Re: Once upon a time Mithril Maniac / Myth'Image

Alors que je menais une petite expédition de recherche dans ma caverne d’Ali Baba, je suis tombé sur une petite boîte qui avait glissée sous une étagère.
Pouah, pleine de toiles d’araignée, Shelob n’était pas loin…
Vous auriez dû être là  pour voir mon sourire à son ouverture. Des goblins !

Click to close


Ou plutôt des orcs pour le besoin d’une petite saynète que j’avais imaginé à l’époque de Myth’Image et jamais terminée. Encore une !
J’adorais le trône du grand goblin, très kitch. Les couleurs ne conviennent pas mais lorsque je l’ai acheté d’occasion je me disais que je les retravailleraient.

Click to close

Allez, on se retrousse les manches et une saynète de plus à présenter pour le Trophée Mithril Maniac  2022. Hors concours bien sûr, je ne peux être juge et partie !

Click to close

While leading a small research expedition in my Ali Baba cave, I came across a small box that had slipped under a shelf.
Ugh, full of cobwebs, Shelob was not far away ...
You should have been there to see my smile when it opened. Goblins !
Or rather orcs for the sake of a little play that I had imagined in the days of Myth’Image and never finished. One more !
I loved the great goblin throne, very kitsch. The colors are not suitable but when I bought it secondhand I said to myself that I would rework them.
Come on, let's roll up our sleeves and present one more playlet for the Mithril Maniac Trophy 2022. Outside the competition of course, I cannot be judge and party !

Re: Once upon a time Mithril Maniac / Myth'Image

Fantastic idea (!) and choice of the figures (!) we all know well. - - - Now there's a problem for you, Fabrice. It definitely had taken quite some time to get rid of all the bases perfectly. So now you need a new and large base for assembling that vignette.
Thanks for sharing the pics, by the way.

Re: Once upon a time Mithril Maniac / Myth'Image

Quelques nouvelles de la saynète MV 359.
J'avance timidement par manque de temps. J'aimerai terminer la saynète d'ici la fin du mois. Ensuite mes huiles et pinceaux resteront sagement dans leur étui.

Click to close

J'ai posé les premières couleurs pour les fils d'Isildur et j'ai pratiquement terminé l'orc.
Ce soir, j'ai placé une lance touchant mortellement l'orc dans le dos. Je pense l'avoir cassée un peu trop haut. Je vais la briser à sa moitié.
J'ai amassé boucliers et épée afin de les placer sur le sol.
Connaissez-vous une adresse, une boutique, un marchand où l'on peut trouver des accessoires pour nos Mithril,  types casques, boucliers, épées, dagues ?
J'en possède encore en stock mais il se réduit.
Par avance merci !
Potez-vous bien.

Some news about the MV 359 playlet.
I am progressing timidly due to lack of time. I would like to finish the playlet by the end of the month. Then my oils and brushes will stay in their case.

I've put down the first colors for Isildur's threads and I've almost finished the orc.
Tonight I placed a spear fatally hitting the orc in the back. I think I broke it a little too high. I'll break it halfway through.
I gathered shields and sword to place on the ground.
Do you know an address, a store, a merchant where we can find accessories for our Mithril, like helmets, shields, swords, daggers?
I still have some in stock but it is getting smaller.
Thanks in advance !
Be sure to post.

Re: Once upon a time Mithril Maniac / Myth'Image

If you want only mithril stuff I feel our community can help and Master Caster is the man when you desperatly need a missing part for he can provide many of these.
Then, if not mithril but still same style and size, I do not know as am a bit exclusive.🤪

Re: Once upon a time Mithril Maniac / Myth'Image

oh very interesting this blue stuff
alas we can't cast in metal with this stuff, only plastic or resin or other "cold" stuff, I don't know if there is any alternative to create moulds from finished figurines that could be recasted in metal... I am no expert but I would be curious

Re: Once upon a time Mithril Maniac / Myth'Image

Thank you for your answers gentlemen,

I know the Green Stuff website, really useful.
But I prefer the ready-made solution and if I can avoid going through the molds, I will be very happy.

I can only think of silicone for casting metal. This is what we do at the club to make the medals given to the winners of the various trophies.

Re: Once upon a time Mithril Maniac / Myth'Image

Hello Mithril Nautes !

En me replongeant dans les archives de Myth'Image pour  trouver les exemplaires des "Mithril Maniac" qui manquent à Alexandre, je suis tombé sur ces catalogues.
Je n'en avais pas souvenir.
Merci Alexandre de m'avoir permis de retrouver ces trésors !
Et il y en d'autres...wink

While digging into the Myth'Image archives to find the copies of the "Mithril Maniac" that Alexander is missing, I came across these catalogs.
I didn't remember them.
Thank you Alexandre to have allowed me to find these treasures !
And there are others...wink
