    Hi all,

    I’m writing to have some feedback from you all.

    As you all know, there are two released (no more available) “warbands” in Mithril history ([mith]MW336[/mith] and [mith]MW337[/mith])

    There are also two unreleased warbands due to licence issues but which were “scheduled” and test casted ([mith]MW346[/mith] and [mith]MW347[/mith])

    Now over the years and since 2005 more precisely, Mithril has released thematic single references composing an army… and at times there have been “promotional offers” to buy a bunch of them with a precise quantity for a limited time.

    There is MPACK1 (Lossanarch Army), MPACK2 (Corsairs of Umbar) and lately MPACK3 (Knights of Dol Amroth)
    each of them consists of a lot of previously individual releases but in certain quantities in order to “build” an army… and the last one MPACK3 (and apparently MPACK2 too) is even released in a dedicated box with a sticker indicated the SKU reference.

    Do you think it pertinent to reference those “MPACK” in the database? since those are a bit like the MCD releases which are compilations of MC releases (themselves recast of the original ones…)

    Thank you for your feedback

    I think that those releases don’t have to be listed in the database as there are no new figures. Yes, a bit like the MC releases.

    Good morning and coffee

    Any packaging format would be included in the reference list.
    Just my opinion

    Good question.
    I think it’s not a matter of new figures in the release or not. Number MB236 (The Hobbit) was also a release of already existing figures (M227-235) and so was MB237 (The Fellowship) which was a reprise of the figures M123-129. But those ‘box’ numbers have to be in the database if you don’t want to leave a gap in it.

    The MPACK numbers form a range on their own, so no problem of leaving a gap if you don’t list them. On the other side: if you don’t list them, it’s like they never have existed. I think it could be interesting for collectors at least to know one could order those figures as an ‘army set’, and certainly if you got them in a special dedicated box (for Dol Amroth it was a cardboard box and for the Corsairs it was the classic ‘Warband’ plastic kit, with a picture, printed on paper, of a group of Corsairs fixed on the kit with tape). The Lossarnach figures just came loose in the usual blisters.

    So I would say: yes, add them to the list. As you already know I’m a fan of Warbands :)

    the MPACK, besides the packaging and blisters are also a given “quantity” of army.
    Each MPACK has a strict same quantity of certain references in them in order to “build” an army (based on a choice of quantity made by Mithril company of course) but that is an information, in addition to the name of the ref that could be useful
