    Not sure if this is the right sub-forum for this question but….

    What’s the story behind the Salute Zero Seven release? It’s an MS release, correct (MS495)… but why the special branding? There where no others branded this way.

    Some of the better informed on the site will be able to give a more detailed answer mindx2, but I think it was a case of the SALUTE organisers commissioning Mithril to produce the ‘freebie’ figure for the event; Mithril also provided a wolf-rider for this event as well (different year), but I’m not sure of the reference.

    I suppose as these figures were produced by Mithril, Mithril decided to give them a Mithril reference, but as I said, I’m sure there may be a more detailed answer.

    There is also a ‘Witch-King’ (I think it was the Witch-King) mass-produced for a LotR game, not sure if it has a Mithril reference though, but again, the answers are out there ;)

    [mith]MS495[/mith] was 1st “salute” mithril miniature in 2007, then there was [mith]PM496[/mith] in 2008
    The LotRO mithril one is [mith]MSA1[/mith].

    I suggest you take a look at the links.

    Thank you both my friends. One quick question that may seem dumb but… what is “SALUTE”?

    PA/Mithril attended the two years that they produced the freebies, but I don’t believe they have before or since as it might have boosted sales and people’s awareness!!!! :/ :D

    I just can confirm what Milo and Ddaines said here.
    – David, your irony is welcome as it reveils part of PA/Mithril’s promotional secrets.

    … er, sorry, Mindx2 that I did not react earlier here though it is me being responsible for this Mathom House. This sub-forum you chose was absolutely right for that kind of question and I see that you found the answers immediately. A Hobbit, a master caster and an artisan were slightly faster than me. But … who can haste anything that is based on serious contemplation and also needs time to find the right words to announce the result accordingly? Alas … it’s not me.
