    Well it arrived this morning (thank you Mr Postman for the wake-up call).

    I’ve not had a chance to look at it in detail, but it is a very professionally presented release by Mithril and well worth the wait.

    So many thanks to Master Theobald, CT and Mithril for bringing this scene to fruition; I hope many of you will be receiving a delivery soon.

    As a minor aside it would have been nice to have had one of the colour photos of the build up by Joe Fahey as a guide, or for those who will not paint this piece so that they can see the finished scene.

    David :)

    Well, Master Ddaines, don’t blame the postman, please, as our dear Master Bilbo Baggins was much more irritated by the permanent knocking at his door by 13 Dwarves … So, don’t be annoyed, please, as there was only one postman for your wake-up call … not 13 postmen, one after the other … you know
    And as for your ‘minor aside’ … well, it also is a matter of cost, I think. I’m sure the two additional sheets in the box should be sufficient as they’re necessary. Painting the scene I would suggest to re-read the first chapter again. Yes, I think, Master Joe Fahey did a very good job, that’s why I put the pictures in the ‘Mathom House’ some days ago.

    By the way that’s where we have that thread.

    But let me not finish here without stating that the order of the names you chose is completely wrong. So I should correct it here:

    – Chris Tubb (all ideas and sculpting)
    – Lars Edman (giving a go about financing the project)
    – all the staff of Mithril with special thanks to the ‘master of spin-mould-making’
    – Joe Fahey for painting the master casting brilliantly in such a short time
    that’s it … no ! … I forgot to mention a friend of mine who first suggested to have something like the UP being done as a vignette and always supported me with this idea
    Rrrrhhuoomm.huom..hommm..hom… enjoy…huoommm

    Well, well!

    I am new in here! Can you tell me, where I can get a little stout ale?

    Hähähä!

    Hi everybody,

    after years of watching I´m now able to post in here! Thanks to Gildor and a little freeware that can shoot a screenshot . . .

    The UP is my prrrecious! As I mentioned before in a place not sooo far away!

    Hello, Master Roland. You’ll need to pop into the Taproom for a free introductory drink – we’re not allowed to serve drinks in here amongst these precious collectables (the Tree would swat Nob like a fly if he spilt ale over the Unexpected Party). But welcome anyway, and may your visits be enjoyable.

    By the way, you’ll have to teach me how to laugh with an umlaut too! I’m sure the accent would come in handy when it comes to chucking out muscle-bound beefcake swordsmen who drink beyond their limit. It might make them think I sound tough. Or not.

    Hey- it is very nice to have Master Bombadil around here! Verrry nice indeed!

    A Elbereth!

    Laughing with Umlaut is not so hard for the people of the common tongue, I guess! To write it down is easy for me, as native German: it´s part of my keyboard . . . But spoken the letter “ä” sounds like the “a” in the word “that”. I know you guys from the islands do have more problems with the two others: “ü” and “ö”.

    But you are right, that it sounds a little dirty, spiteful, gloating, tough! Depends on how or if you press or breathe the air out while laughing . . . May sound like a gattling gun or a dangerous threatening demon!:lol:

    Perfect – that’s just what I need! But I thought it was us here in Bree that spoke the common tongue…?

    Uhh? Yeah.
    In Bree.
    There.

    Uhhm, yes . . .

    But? But?

    What is the most common tongue? Except music? Ahh, yes, Westron! Like you speak it! Nowadays called lingua franca. Oh! No! Excuse me! Not in your area! This was in center-Middle-Earth or more southern regions, some centuries ago! Over here it is old saxon!
    Ooooh, shi…! No, `beg your pardon! I think you´ll call it english! Today. On the other hand: doesn´t matter. Same roots, same familiy! What did the professor say about this? For sure, there are some strong influences from far away in the North: Finland (near Cape Forochel). All elvish tongues have their roots there, and with tose the language of the Edain, Dunedain, all Gondorians and their subjects, like Hobbits, you Breelanders and all the others under the reign of the crown!

    Most of our tongues have gone their own merry way in the past thousand years or so, but I was astonished to find the other day that I can actuially almost read a Flemish edition of Lord of the Rings! I was truly amazed at the many similarities to English.

    I wonder how the French feel about the modern “lingua franca” (er, French…) actually being English?
