    I think my next (more ambitious) diorama will be a clash between Harad and Faramir’s Rangers of Ithilien. I’m trying to I.D. the different models I need.

    Here are the figures I’m thinking of getting.

    Rangers
    MC39 Faramir
    MC40 Anborn & Gollum (will remove Gollum – just need another ranger!)
    M378 Mablung
    M379 Ranger
    M380 Damrod
    M384 Ranger/Harad fighting
    M386 Ranger

    Harad
    MB418 Mumak boxed set
    M382 Southron Swordsman
    M293 Harad Mounted Chieftain
    M294 Harad Mailed Infantry
    M153 Harad Captain (very rare..)
    M154 Harad Infantry (rare..)

    So my question:
    Does anyone have an extra M153 or M154 they would like to sell to me – to help my effort? :)

    Or any other ideas or advice to offer?

    Thank you!

    Howerya George.

    I’ll look, but I think I’ve already given away my spare M154.

    The good news is that they do show up on ebay reasonably regularly, as do some of the recent Rangers of Ithilien series.

    When running an ebay.com search be sure to “include international sellers” and you can get some very good deals.

    Hi, OriginalAragorn, I just saw your list. Unfortunately I do not have spare figures of the nice M153 and M154 (mind that the M154 consists of two figures!).
    What I want to say is that in you listing up the Haradrim you seem to have forgotten two more very nice figures:
    – M293 (Haradan mounted chieftain)
    – M294 (Haradan mailed infantryman)
    As for the Rangers, I think M377 to M386 are still available at Mithril directly.
    You seemed to have chosen a very ambigious project for your next diorama :)

    Master Theobald – I’m afraid my project may be a bit TOO ambitious! I may end up going with a smaller skirmish – without the oliphant.. :D

    And most wise one, I must point out that I did list the M293/294 on my list. Perhaps you have partaken of the “magic fungus” a bit too readily this evening…

    George –

    Quick piece of useful advice: scour ebay.com. For whatever reason, really good mithril deals can be had from sellers in the US. They won’t have quite as good a variety of “finds” but you can certainly save yourself money, by paying and getting shipping in USD. US ebay sellers have quite a high opinion of their time (as evidenced by shipping and handling costs!)

    Which leads me to my final piece of quasi useful advice: be patient!

    …. why “too ambitious projec”t Master Aragorn… be patient as Master Gavin said and your mithril dream will be accomplished… and this is the point of all hobbies… ;) …. I think that lots of MMP guys want to see nice colored diorama with battle between Harad and Ithilien !!!!

    Too ambitious because I don’t think I’m good enough Nino! :) I’m not sure I have the ability to model the terrain and paint these figures to look as good as they need to.

    But I still might do it!

    QUESTION: do most people who order from Mithril use “Standard” postage or “Registered” postage?

    Thanks,
    George

    I use standard, never had a problem, and my packages generally go to Canada.

    (Being from Ireland, I’ve occasionally ordered from them when I was actually there!)

    I think I’m developing a reputation as being impatient! :P

    So it should come as no surprise that I just ordered the following models:

    MC39 Faramir
    MC40 Anborn & Gollum
    M294 Harad Mailed Infantry
    M378 Mablung
    M379 Ranger
    M380 Damrod
    M382 Southron Swordsman
    M384 Ranger/Harad fighting
    M386 Ranger

    I couldn’t quite bring myself to order the Mumak yet. Maybe soon..

    I can’t wait! Why aren’t they here yet? It’s been 10 minutes!

    All things can be learned, and so making the field for the Diorama too. Look at my black and white photographs on facebook, and you will se that those dioramas are made from of plaster, resin, real plants, artificial snow spray, wood remnants, fabrics, etc … there are many things you can find easily… and be patient… You did not give yourself deadline that your diorama should be ready soon! :) … so I engage in modeling last 25 years … and everything you see on my site is the result of that … so as Master Theobald sais….take your time and do not haste hooooooommrhoooommmmm my mithril friend…

    for postage … I have to use recommended with the insurance because I live in a “state” outside the EU, which falls within the zone of “primitive peoples” :)

    Have a nice day George… ups Master Aragorn…

    Well, Thingol, living “outside the EU” and being regarded as ‘primitive’ I can only say that I’m living ‘inside’ the EU and was regarded the same way as you by the customs-offices because I am not living in the USA. It took me more than two weeks, many phone calls, letters, filling out forms, etc. to receive that ‘NĂºmenorian Army’ a friend sent to me as a present.
    Is there anything more ridiculous than that?
    Regards from another ‘primitive mind’ ;)
