    This is not a Mithril vignette, just a conversion …

    Excellent, Master Ent, I can’t praise it enough, it just goes to show what can be achieved with a bit of thought. Where is the chariot from?

    Perhaps when you have time you could post some more images to show the detail up a bit closer.

    :D ;)

    Now that is interesting! And very nice. :)

    Who did the converting?

    Sorry, but it wasn’t me having casted all those parts … I just had to choose between some parts available … then use some of that “Green Stuff” to make it a bit more stable … well, priming and adding details … and things like that.
    Oh, yes it’s the first time that that good old forgotten idea was assembled and being photographed. It’ll have a nice place in my collection ….
    As for your query about the chariot you’re in the wrong place here ;) as it is part of a riddle … So I’ll place it there if you don’t mind ….

    wow- Master Ent, this is brillant.
    As mentioned somewhere here around, that I am not sure of converting external parts in mithril . . .
    I should revise that.
    This is brilliant !

    Huuoommmm … why not change or re-organize some of them Mithril-figures … huoomm … I know about those people who chop off heads or bases just for a diorama …. rhuoommm … no harm intended … hom … others try to find ships to fit with the Corsairs … huommm .. so, why not do it? …. ney, not chips for corsairs, please … alas … sometimes I feel getting old … rhuoom

    Very, very impressive, this chariot. Is it already (re-?)primed by using a grey colour, all parts look so consistent? Wow …

    Well, first of all let me thank you for the compliment … huoommm…. now to answer your question; I can say that all parts have been primed for the first time within the last two weeks … hom … not being re-primed … huoomm … for that I used the good old ‘Humbrol-enamel’ nr 1 (matt) … which, as I witnessed comes closest to the Mithril-undercoat (which recently was changed and until now doesn’t seem to be perfect – talking about those Knights from Dol Amroth)
    … alas … there also were discussions about the difference in grey between the old regular Mithril-releases and the more greenish touch in those figures of ‘Saruman’s Army’ …. huoomm…
    Oh yes, that consistency is what the name tells … a good mixture of that enamel paint I referred to and a drop of that superglue … rhuoommm … does work … and as soon as you’ve cleaned your twigs (sorry … fingers) from that sticky old stuff the leashes will hold .. hom … in between you will have spent about two or three brushes … rhuoommm
    alas, too talkative I have been … sorry …

    Where is possible to buy this chariot, and pieces like this… ? Thanks for your answer Master Tree….

    Thingol, I feel sorry having to tell you that this piece (or parts of it) are not available anywhere.
    I received it as a very (!) generous gift from the one who created this masterpiece.
    I simply assembled all the different parts (there even were some variants for the horses and the figures) and primed the chariot-piece.

    Anyway thank for your answer… I hope I will find somewhere something similar… :) all the best Master tree…

    Well, Thingol, as I said before I really do regret that this piece will never be casted or provided.
    A friend gave it to me. As far as I know there are only two chariots as this one existing. But fortunately I’m still in contact with this friend. But though friends there are, some choose to be not named (NN). I have to respect this.
