    Mithril once published a catalogue with pictures of their Mithril ranges, but this catalogue was not complete. For example it started immediately with M83. So I decided to make my own pages and here they are!

    That do look very fine indeed, Master Gerold.
    I tried to do the same for myself- in black and white in this case- due to the second catalogue from mithril. But that is still inclompete.
    Interesting to see in your work, Master Gerold, are the text parts. Did you write those text passages for yourself or . . . ?

    This is really a cool and great work Master Gerold. I am very impressed and as master turambar, I wonder if you wrote text passages for yourself or… ? :) .

    That would be kind, Master Milo. I’m sure you remember that I’m very much interested in catalogues about Mithril miniatures.

    You certainly should do so, Master Milo . . .

    Oh: about those textes I remind on your “dragon-magazine-scans”, Milo, do you remember- those advertise sheets you sent me long time ago . . .
    Maybe there is a similar text to find . . .

    Thank you Milo for sharing it ;)
    Do you have a French version at the bottom of one of your drawers?
    And very great work Master Gerold ;)

    Thanks for your comments!
    Yes, the texts are written in Dutch and I wrote them in the first place for my own pleasure :)

    It was also interesting for me because I had to do some research, f.e. who were the Sagath ? What’s an Eothraim Prince ? What is the origin of Rohan ? What’s the history of Tharbad and where do these Mithril characters come from ? Believe me or not, but many of these things I simply did not know. I was only interested in the main stories and of course the beauty of the figures. I don’t call myself a M-E specialist now, but I’ve learned a lot doing research for these pages.

    If people are interested I might try to do some translation work and put it in the gallery. You can search for errors and mistakes then :rolleyes:

    Ah- thanks for the explanation, Gerold.

    And Milo- thanks a lot for sharing these treasures too!!!!!!! There seem to be a lot of hidden mithril-related stuff around.
    Interesting beneath the colour scheme are the photographs of early mithril figures in a very fine quality.
    I would be very interesting in these sheets- always on the hunt for fine photos- as you know . . . and I would be pleased if you can send them to me.
    A drink for Master Milo please!

    Oh Great! I loved the old catalogues with all those “flavour” text explaining facts about the miniature. It really was a great background for were you wanted to paint, sometimes those texts inspired me enough to paint!! ^^

    And Milo those are some terrific relics!

    I have made a translated page for the first range of miniatures, but can someone give a good suggestion for a way to share it here ?
    It’s a word-document, so posting in the gallery doesn’t work.

    I have learned throughout many years that PDF is the most common data for text files . . .

    Indeed, pdf is a good solution. Another solution is jpg but no search is possible in the text.

    Well, as far as JPG format is concerned I have a serious doubt about the quality. I just have to have a look at the photgraphs taken from the minis . . .

    As far as Master Zoetrop´s work is concerned I think you have to ask Master Zoetrop for publishing it here, Master Milo!
    The other question: is there really anybody out there WITHOUT knowledge of Zoetrop´s catalogue?

    I am not sure if I know which is that catalogue your are talking about.
    I have a catalogue marked as mithril 2010 catalogue and collector’s guide with a lot of pages with all miniatures from m1 to ms563, that I think corresponds to the one you were talking about. Am i right?

    ok, a new try with hopefully better pictures of the catalogue pages…

    when you zoom in with your screen to 200%, you should be able to read it:P

    So you are talking about two completely different catalogues here.

    Concerning Herbert’s catalogues I think Turambar is right suggesting to contact Herbert and ask him before providing his catalogue here on MMP. I was a bit involved in those two catalogues and from that time I remember well that Herbert did not want to have it published here.

    Nice pages Gerold… did you make whole catalogue with all figures or only one part of the whole range…
