Wow, what good memories I have of collecting Mithrils. This is a good subject so thank you erchamion for starting this conversation. I first read the Lord of the Rings, Hobbit, and Silmarillion some thirty plus years ago in my early teens.

Like Presto and others, I came to Mithrils through Role-Playing, starting with D&D, and then Call of Cthulhu. One of my college friends had a bunch of Pal Ratha’s and Grenadier’s, and a few Mithrils which we played our Adventures with. The Mithrils were far superior to the other miniatures, and when I began to lead RPG adventures using MERP, I began to acquire the miniatures my adventurers needed in our game play. Soon I was hooked and became a collector, and set out to collect the entire range of Mithrils.

I must say that I have met some of the nicest people who share a similar love for the craftsmanship of Chris and a love of Tolkien’s writings on this (and the previous MMP) web-site. So Thanks also to Gildor for his great work in opening this new site for us to continue our conversations!
