    Hello fellow collectors

    I used to gather Mithril miniature when I was younger (12 years ago) and I happen to recover from the depth of my attic a wood box containing around 100 loose but in good condition Mithril miniatures (as well as some boxes like the balrog), the ones I never actually had time to paint. (7 more references have missing parts it’s clearly mentionned at the end of the list)

    I am not the greedy kind and, to be honest I don’t really have a clue of what’s the current value of these miniatures.

    On the other hand I certainly don’t have the time (with three kids) to put these pieces individually on ebay or some other auction sites and I think it’s stupid it rots here while some collectors might look after. I do remember how important it is to collectors to find missing pieces. ^^

    So I would greatly appreciated advises on how to sell these easily as well as some kind of estimation of the value of the pieces.

    To be honest I would like to sell the lot to one or two persons for their own use even if it means selling quite cheap compared to the actual value.

    I am in France and can be contacted via these forums or at the following email : igor@pipeshow.net

    Thanks for your time, hopefully I didn’t break any rules of these forums by asking this.

    I do not believe you will break any rules asking at all!

    Chances are you’ll get request for individual parts rather than someone buying the lot at once. If I had a lot of spare cash lying around I’d give you a lump sum and then sell them around ebay or swap them here. (I’m still looking for another M325 and M212!)

    I hope you find a buyer!

    Thanks, you know my hope is actually to find a seller with enough patience or selling skills to make me an offer and take advantage of it. That’s why, in lack of answers, it may end up in ebay, although I ‘d rather find a real collector for it (even if it means making less money).

    Clearly I would accept half of the current price if only someone would be interested by the whole lot (I can imagine a collector who would fill gaps in his/her collection and getting spare miniatures for exchanges here)

    Also I would greatly appreciate if someone could give me even a rough estimation of the value for the lot.

    Bon Soir Master Bikini, well let me tell you that our noble Master Gildor has put a database which is quiet amazing.
    You will find EVERYTHING concerning each single miniature. Even the price.
    As far as I am informed that price put itself from all ebay-prices of that figure throughout the last year.
    Imagine this. As I say: amazing !
    There you find what you are looking for. Only put the button “mithril database” at the top of the page and go ahead!
    And I wish you good luck.

    Thanks for the advise, I guess if I counted right and based on the site Database, the sum of the complete references (I didn’t counted what was incomplete) is 662 €.

    I guess I would be happy to sell for 300 to 400 € (for the lot, including incomplete references) to a real collector (or group of collector) and not to an ebay pro seller (assuming the buyer pays for the transport). Or do you advise me to make a bundle for Ebay?

    If you don’t get a buyer by June or so, contact me, and I’ll buy them from you for a fair price and sell or trade them with the rest of the MMP community. I’ll be in Ireland by then, so shipping will be less of a problem.

    OK, sounds good, although I don’t know if I will still have it by then, but I’ll keep that in mind :)
