    Just posting this on behalf of a collector from the US of A who posted on the Faceache ‘Friends of Mithril Miniatures page. Do any members have any information? Apparently it is also a one-piece casting and note that there are several differences to the released figure.

    To me it looks like the painted one is the “finished one”, because it got more details added.

    I think Master Hsf62 is absolutely correct with his judgement about this – – – – no, I’m sure he is.

    I suppose the guy on the right is yours Master ddaines. It fits the one on the Mithril page.

    I would like to know where he got the figure from. Is it possible to ask him?
    It doesn’t make sense to make a mould cast the guy and then add details to it. Exept it was a Master figure and CT changed it before they produced the production mould. Anything else doesn’t make sense….:/

    I looked at my figure and it looks like the painted one … I do not understand why somebody have removed details from the miniature and make it the “poorer one” … Without much more detail on the belts and buckles on the cloak etc…. I also think that this could be some kind of master figure…. If it si this true guy is lucky man…

    Holger, the figure on the right is Steven’s painted version, but he said that Michael O’Brien stated the unpainted version had been ‘reworked’.

    I’ll ask where he obtained the one-piece unpainted version from, but as you can see the cloaks are different lengths, the main belt buckle is different and there appears to be a ‘trim’ on the bottom of his tunic.

    I guess it is likely as you say that it was a master figure prior to full production ;)
