    oh, yes a bowl of that clear clean water would do for the moment … slainte mhath … huoomm.

    Glad to see you back, Master Tree – and ‘speaking in tongues’ as well! The water is on me (well, it’s been raining…)

    Huooommmm … thank you very much, Master Barliman … indeed … rhuoommm … So what’s up? No new rumours have been provided by now …. huomrhuuooomm … except the one from Master Gildor referring to an upcoming offer from The Man this autumn …. hom … alas … I do remember times when a new offer was being thought of before …. huommm … didn’t it take some years before three dwarves saw the light? …. That’s what I also appreciate among other things … huom … The Man is not hasty at all … hom

    I’ll take some of that rain water, please. I’ll pay extra for a clean glass. :D

    A clean glass? What’s wrong with them that Nob has spat on and polished?

    On a more Mithril-oriented theme, I was pleased (and at the same time in some ways surprised) to see that the Dol Amroth dudes include another Prince Imrahil – pleased because it’s reassuring to those that always worry that figures produced for the Fellowship range might consequently never feature in a standard ‘M’ range; and surprised because of our Ent having financed an Imrahil of his very own at no inconsiderable expense. Did you know this one was also coming, Master Tree? Or has it come as something of a shock?

    Rhuooomm … none of a shock, as you say Master Barliman , and it didn’t surprise me at all.
    As I learned before submitting the Imrahil as an MX.figure I knew that there was an Imrahil sculpted for the “Swan Knights”. Different pose but nonetheless being a prince of Dol Amroth.
    I chose the MX-Imrahil to announce the sale of the “Knights of Dol Amroth”. … rhuooomm…
    As I was in close contact with The Man while considering the release of the Swan-knights I have to state that he helped me a lot … rhuooommm … of course I was aware of the Imrahil in the set of the ‘Swan Knights’ but also wanted to have the battle-worn Imrahil as something special … rhuommm … and so is the variant with the sword …… rhuoommmhommm

    Ah … rhuoommmm … I just came across “The Court of Ardor” which was new to me …. huommm … great job indeed, Master Gavin … hom … and not forgetting Master Gildor behind the screen … hom … so, Master Barliman, top up the glasses of those two gentlemen, please …hom!

    I must admit I haven’t had time to pop into the Court of Ardor yet (a very grand name for a lounge), but I shall take a look round in there when I next go in to drain the slops tray.

    the court of Ardor is in progress indeed, but all the material for it is in the hands of Gavin, I don’t have the info myself… :)
    all credits is to him, I only made some “post display setup”

    Huoommmm … I am glad that Master Gavin decided to take care of the Court of Ardor … huommm … methinks he’s the one who knows best about them MERP-related matters … hom … thanks, Master Gavin ….. rhuooommmmm…

    well, rumours, Master Barliman, none? ….. alas … huoommm … so those matters about the GF-monthly suggestions have obviously been settled by now …. huom … in future there will only be single figures a month (unmounted and no accessories) …. huomrhuom … that will ease the pressure on Master Tubb a bit and allows him more time on the regular Mithril releases … homrhuom …
    as the regular Mithril releases are to be regarded as the core of the Mithril range they shouldn’t be overshadowed by the “Fellowship stuff” …. rhuoommm…. someone said recently … huom

    And it’s very true. I hope that we haven’t seen the end of mounted Fellowship figures or vignettes for ever, though. At the moment I gather it’s just for the rest of the year, so presumably things will revert to normal next year.

    Huoommmm … that’s what I also hope, Master Barliman …. hom …. by the way The Man thanks you and other members for our consideration and concern about these matters …. rhuoommm … he might even have finished William by now and says that a 12 figure backlog should not occur ….. hom … the Witch King, Theodred, the dead rider, the Arnorian knight and Rhudaur king, and the M500 Gandalf already have been sent to Ireland recently …. so, huoomm… we’ll see ….

    That’s a bundle of news and no mistake, Master Tree – worth at least one bowl of golden water with just a hint of alcoholic after-taste.

    Thank you all for that good news, even if I have to fear now for my portmonaie. Maybe an enchanted trollish money-pocket would be good to have (those pockets speak bad words if you empty them ;-)).

    And: Yes hope to see those preview pictures soon! I enjoyed much Chris’ vision of a Rhudaur Hillmen King and the Arnorian knight- I still love the Angmar/Arnor story.

    Well, the Fellowship vote was a real contest this month, but I’m pleased that Ingold won in the end, even by so narrow a margin. It will be very nice to have a character that we’ve never had before, either from Mithril or anyone else for that matter!

    There was certainly a lot of support for Master Savage’s Boromir-with-horn suggestion, and it’s to be hoped that he’ll put it up again soon. I’d very probably vote for it myself, since, as I mentioned in the Fellowship forum, Boromir blowing his horn is a genuinely icnoic moment in LOTR and merits being represented in the range. Come to that, though there are other Boromir figures, it’s been a while since we’ve had a fresh one.

    Mentioning fresh ones, who needs a top-up?
