    Hello, Dear MMP Fellows!

    I’m writing this little leaflet for the defense of some important guys, but mostly forgotten in our beloved Mithril ranges:

    THE LEFT-HANDED!

    Haven’t you noticed that there are very few left-handed minis in all Mithril catalog?

    With the new pdf Catalog (thanks Zoetrop), it’s has been very easy to make a quick check, and as long I see (sorry if I made any mistakes), the only left-handed minis are:

    [mith]M11[/mith]
    [mith]M33[/mith]?
    [mith]m54[/mith]?
    [mith]m94[/mith]
    [mith]m97[/mith] only one of 3
    [mith]m108[/mith]
    [mith]m116[/mith] the dwarf
    [mith]m118[/mith] southern spy
    [mith]m131[/mith]
    [mith]m148[/mith]
    [mith]m168[/mith]
    [mith]m171[/mith]
    [mith]m193[/mith] archer
    [mith]m243[/mith]
    [mith]m253[/mith]
    [mith]m255[/mith]
    [mith]m256[/mith]
    [mith]m257[/mith]
    [mith]m306[/mith]
    [mith]m314[/mith]
    [mith]m318[/mith]
    [mith]m322[/mith]
    [mith]m326[/mith]
    [mith]m330[/mith]
    [mith]m332[/mith]
    [mith]m381[/mith]
    [mith]m410[/mith]
    [mith]m414[/mith] archer
    [mith]m416[/mith]
    [mith]m477[/mith]
    [mith]ms469[/mith]
    [mith]ms507[/mith]
    [mith]ms508[/mith]
    [mith]ms555[/mith]
    [mith]lr28[/mith]
    [mith]lr35[/mith]
    [mith]lo14[/mith]
    [mith]msa1[/mith]

    This is less that 40 left-handed… Looking on the net, it’s know that more or less 10% of world poblation it’s left handed… So they are very few represented in mithril ranges.

    So join me to ask CT for more left-handed guys and girls (or whatever it was ;) ) in Mithril Minis! We can!

    (BY THE WAY, I’m NOT left-handed)

    Well after this moment of madness on myself (sorry I forget to take my medication this morning), talkin’ a bit more seriously:

    Don´t you think that I will be better for doing vignettes or great scenes that we have a few more left-handed minis? I have noticed, principaly with warbands and and mordor’s and gondor’s army sets, when you see them together, a bit .. too much … standardized (don’t misinterpret me, men … I guess that it is intencional because it’s great for wargaming). I think that some more left-handed minis will provide a few more dynamism to our vignettes.

    I would like to know your opinion and if you think it will be reasonable to ask Mithril & CT for some more left-handed

    Thanks in advance and sorry if I disturb anyone with this. As I said, if was partly for fun

    This is a brilliant observation Master Imisel. I never went to the fact that there are so many left-handed good and bad characters in whole range of figures….

    Recently I had the discussion about left-handed rider of Rohan ( conversion not original one ) and we concluded that it was nothing unusual. Now I definitely see that it is not unusual…. not in Mithril world :) Some of those on the list are not left-handed, but it certainly has a lot of them here. Mostly orcs, ghosts and trolls….

    Yes, I have noticed that too… That most of them are bad guys. I guess if CT has done intentionally ;)

    I suppose that making more evil people left-handed make them more…… sinister ;)

    Sounds like a good idea to me! Although be wary of left handed people using your power tools! (It took me ages to figure out my uncle had changed the angle grinder round, I though I was having a bad day :rolleyes: )

    :lol:, reminds me of being in metalwork class at school, I wondered why I had broken several drill bits until I realised my classmates had put the drilling machine in reverse :/.

    I have never given this much thought regards to Mithril figures, perhaps you could spring a law suit on Mithril for discrimination against ‘lefties’ :D.

    I’m sure the European Court of Human F****g ( :rolleyes:) Rights (or Criminals Rights as it seems all to often to be) has a clause in there somewhere for the rights of metal figures :D😆

    great topic. i have been actively looking for left-handed miniatures over the years, regardless of manufacturer and it’s a bummer that there are only so few of them out there.

    left-handed trolls to the rescue! 😆

    come to think of it, we need more ambidextrous ones as well!

    Thanks everybody for your contribution to this topic…. I didn´t think that it could be so successful!

    Well, we can suggest directly to CT to make some left-handed in Phaeton Range :) About your suggestion, Cameosis, it will be great to see an elf fighter with two daggers, or a short sword and a dagger in his/her left hand. Ambidextrous have RIGHTS too! 😎
