    Hello Thingol,
    I stopped collecting Mithril in 2003, around M 398. I have all the previous references and even some that can not be found as the ME 2 in the photo wip “Project TMM 2020” or as this.

    Hi everybody,

    Did you know about these blisters?

    the figure you mention here is Christmas 1993 Isildur ([mith]Chr1993[/mith]), which by coincidence is still sold by Mithril at the moment as they found a new stock they had forgotten. I actually have 4 of them :) (one undercoated, one antique finished, one “raw”, and one with a default)

    Definitly not the [mith]ME2[/mith]

    so it used to be a rare figurine and now… it is a common one, how ironic :)

    as for the master figurines, some of us have some masters too yes, and the certificates along with them I have two of them iirc ;)

    Good news, this will make the collector until now orphans of this figurine and of course, I do not confuse Isildur and Aragorn, the ME 2, that you can see, Gildor, on the first picture posted.

    indeed i see it :) though I fail to understand if there is a hidden meaning in this :)

    Waiting to be painted, a stroll of Grands Pas in Celtitude.

    This Celtic cross was carved about 30 years ago by Christian, a member of Myth’Image. This marked even more our attachment to our native Brittany. Of course, we all considered that Nantes was a Breton land !

    In French
    Cette croix celtique fut sculptée il y a environ 30 ans par Christian, un membre de Myth’Image. Cela marquait encore plus notre attachement à notre Bretagne natale. Bien sûr, nous considérions tous que Nantes était une terre bretonne ! :P

    … Will Aragorn sit on the ground below the cross… A very contemplative idea…

    I would love to see these in real life. On my side, I have few master figures, all around M110.

    I took advantage of this long weekend to advance on my project. I started by removing the gray primer, too granular for my taste, deburring the figurine and then under bed again. Until then everything went well, the result was less advantageous. I have not painted a figurine since 10 years. Several observations: my vision has dropped, I did not think so much and am no longer as comfortable painting on this scale as in the old days.
    My favorite medium was always oil painting, not always easy to master but as time passed and with the advice of Master Jacques, my technique has been confirmed and refined until a satisfactory rendering, approaching that of the master without exceeding it. To save some time, we slept with acrylic paint. Badly took me to have forgotten this technique. After two hours of work, I threw in the towel. The Aragorn figurine is now in a chemical pickling bath.
    It only remains for me to start again this time, the good technique. If I rely on the time we spent painting a figurine 30 years ago, I have at least twenty good hours, and maybe as much for the scenery. A big challenge, but all will be ready for the Open!

    Version française
    J’ai profité de ce long week-end pour avancer sur mon projet. J’ai commencé par enlever la couche primaire grise, trop granuleuse à mon goût, ébarber la figurine puis la sous coucher à nouveau. Jusque là tout s’est bien déroulé, la suite fut moins avantageuse. Je n’ai pas peins de figurine depuis au mois 10 ans. Plusieurs constatations : ma vue a baissée, je ne le pensais pas autant et ne suis plus aussi à l’aise pour peindre à cette échelle comme au temps jadis.
    Mon médium préféré a toujours été la peinture à l’huile, pas toujours facile à maîtriser mais le temps passant et avec les conseils de Maître Jacques, ma technique s’est affirmée et affinée jusqu’à obtenir un rendu satisfaisant, s’approchant de celui du maître sans pour autant le dépasser. Pour gagner un peu de temps, nous sous couchions avec de la peinture acrylique. Mal m’en a pris d’avoir oublié cette technique. Au bout de deux heures de labeur, j’ai jeté l’éponge. La figurine d’Aragorn se trouve maintenant dans un bain de décapage chimique.
    Il ne me reste plus qu’à recommencer avec cette fois-ci, la bonne technique. Si je me base sur le temps que nous passions à peindre une figurine il y a 30 ans, j’ai pour au moins vingt bonnes heures, et peut-être autant pour le décors. Un sacré challenge, mais l’ensemble sera prêt pour l’Open !
