    Interesting idea Master Maenas….

    I have one question… for competitors in the first round… if it is impossible to find mithril minature with long beard… can the competitors make conversion figure….. !?!?

    Of course! conversions are welcomed, and it is not necessary a long beard…. almost all dwarves have beards too so they are also welcomed the main intention here is, facial hair and pose xD it does not matter if it is a man, an elf (this would be strange, but why not?), orc or whatever races of middle earth. The title of the contest is just a general theme to have a similar starting point.

    I have a miniature which would qualify, but it has a first layer of some plain colours already.

    Does it qualify as a valid enter or should I start one from the begining?

    Now that you have ‘spilt the beans…….!!!! 😆 As most MM’s have a layer of grey paint on them already you should be okay ;)

    Perfectly viable Arthadan! this is more of a share thing than a true contest, so your and your mini are most than welcomed ^^

    Oh and we can all start! so keep them coming!

    This is my chosed mini ^^ :

    It is [mith]m89[/mith] and I bought this one almost a year ago at ebay, it was very dirty so I wash and rince a couple of times then striped it by dipping+rubbing with alcohol and acetone mix. Then airbrushed it in white (Im a completely noob with the airbrush) see following pic, and my intention is to airbrushit again with a darkest tone from below.

    On these last months I just found that mithril coating is superthick and it sometimes covers a little bit too much of Chris T. work so I am starting to remove it from the miniatures I am willing to paint.

    Not finish yet, i must sculpt some hair and a hood on his tunic!I get the idea from this Angus Mc Bride image:

    On my side, I go for [mith]M91[/mith].

    Are we sure this image is by McBride? It doesn’t resemble his usual style at all.

    It’s the cover of MERP Dol Guldur – citadels serie. Based on Art credits, Angus is the author

    Wow. There’s far more “life” and motion in this one than his usual stuff. (Sorry, I’ve never been a fan of Angus’ work, even though he illustrated some of my own books. I always felt his characters were too stumpy and stocky. But “each to his own”, as we say here in Bree.)

    What’s that? Celeborn without heavy plate mail? But it’s MERP… how’s possible the Mithril version has a Tolkien-inaccurate plate armour then?

    Oh my…

    Sorry, I had to.

    Hi folks,
    I will paint M27, King Theoden, for the competition (and for pleasure). He has a long beard. And long hair.
    Will post image soon.

    Great selections!! I like them all!
    Oh and orc very nice conversion! It really fits the mini a lot!

    For those that still have to choose a mini, there is no problem in repeating, feel free to do so. But there is plenty of beards on the range ;)

    Let’s recapitulate a little bit:

    Orc –> [mith]m84[/mith] conversion
    Milo –> [mith]m91[/mith]
    Gerold –> [mith]m27[/mith]
    Maenas –> [mith]m89[/mith]

    And Gerold, I also like that mini of Theoden alot, I painted it less than a year ago ^^

    Looks like his signature under the left hand figure’s cloak.

    I’m planning on the Balrog (original version) – good excuse to get this character painted.
