Bilbo presents the Arkenstone” is a release we plan on releasing this June.
This vignette will be available in June 2013. Until the date of release we are offering pre-orders at 20% discount.
This piece depicts the moment from “The Hobbit“ where Bilbo presents the Arkenstone to Bard of Esgaroth in the presence of the Elvenking. Our sculptor imagined the scene to be that of an armed camp, engaged in warlike preparations. The armies present are those of both Lake and Forest. Some figures which have appeared earlier in the Mithril range have made re-appearances (in new forms) and some new ones are also included.
Behind the seated figure of Thranduil the Elven High-captain of Aradhrynd is seen again, here leaning forward to advise the Elvenking. Behind him stands an Elven Royal guardsman, similar to the one depicted in “Halls of the Elvenking” but this time bearing the king’s standard.
Behind Bard is one of his company of archers who has escaped the conflagration of Esgaroth and next to him, directly behind Bard stands an Easterling outlier scout in the service of Laketown, illustrated in Tengwar no.3. Flanking the group on the right side of the piece is a reprise of the Laketown guardsman but wearing lamellar armour and carrying the standard of Esgaroth. Kneeling in the right foreground is a Laketown oarsman.
At the left of the scene stands a version of the earlier Laketown adventurer who having offered his service to Bard is arming himself with the aid of his squire. At the centre, before the “Captains and the kings” stands the small figure of Bilbo offering the precious Arkenstone to the new master of Laketown.
This release is not primed and requires assembly.

Mithril Miniatures have a tradition of making a special figure at Christmas.
A Northmen city on the Southern slopes of Erebor, Dale was a thriving and wealthy city for much of the Third-age. It's wealth was based largely upon its trade with the Dwarves of Erebor, and its culture and costume had much Dwarven influence. It's last king, Girion, is depicted wearing a high-pointed helm of Dwarven design with a long surcoat of fine wrought mail. The city was destroyed by Smaug when he descended upon the lonely mountain in 2770 T.A. and Girion was killed in the inferno. Bard the archer of Laketown was a descendant of Girion and Bard’s own grandson became king of the re-founded city after the War of the Ring. This figure is available Antique Finished and Unprimed while stocks last.

This miniature was released in November 2012. It was March 2012's winning idea in the Fellowship Club.
According to Tom Bombadil, he found her long ago by the pool where he gathers water-lilies from the Withywindle river. The races of Tom Bombadil and Goldberry are not known though Goldberry is said to be the daughter of the River-woman. Her voice is beautiful, "as young and as ancient as spring," like the song of a glad water flowing down into the night from a bright morning in the hills." She has long blonde hair, and when Frodo Baggins, Meriadoc Brandybuck, Peregrin Took, and Sam Gamgee first see her, she is wearing a green dress shot with silver and a gold belt. Wide vessels of green and brown earthenware hold floating water-lilies so she seems to be enthroned in the middle of a pool.
This miniature is aimed to depict Goldberry in the river, water up to knee, raising her skirt with one hand. She is bending over the river flow and touches the surface with the other hand. While the river is not present, any diorama builder can easily add this figure into such a scenario.http://www.mithril.ie

Bounded by Mordor to the north and the Mumakan lands to the south lie the deserts of the Haradwaith. Huge in area the lands of Harad are, for the most part, burning wastes. The Haradrim live on its fringes – on the coastal line in the west and in the mountainous regions of Far Harad in the south.
The peoples of the coastal region are great traders and cities such as Umbar act as trading hubs for merchants and travellers.
The traders of Harad ply their goods across the great deserts to Khand and to the east of the Ered Harmal, and find relief from the dust and heat in the several oases which are dotted throughout the burning wastes. Some of these oases have settlements which offer refreshment and entertainment to the weary traveller.
This vignette shows such a scene.
The trader, having watered and fed his camel train is resting, drinking wine and watching a dancing girl.
These miniatures are sold unprimed. They are 32mm scale metal figures.

This was February 2012's winning idea in the Fellowship club. It was released in September 2012.
Denethor was the Steward of Minas Tirith, the capital city of Gondor. He tried to use a palantir to spy on Sauron's armies but his visions were manipulated by Sauron so they caused despair and disillusionment.
After the poorly judged decision to defend Osgiliath, resulting with the almost fatal injury of his younger son Faramir, and the inevitable siege of Minas Tirith by the monstrous forces of Sauron, Denethor lost all hope and committed suicide.He ordered his men to burn him alive on a pyre prepared for himself and Faramir. Faramir was saved by the timely intervention of Peregrin Took, with help from Gandalf and the guard Beregond.

This LOTR miniature is 32mm scale and was released in August 2012.
“Easterling” was a general name given by the settled peoples of Gondor and Rohan to those nomadic tribes who inhabited the lands of eastern Rhovanion and those vast steppes beyond the sea of Rhun. Divided into many clans and tribes the Easterling peoples were pastoralists who lived in temporary tented encampments and who moved according to the pasturage available to their great herds of horses. Famed for their skill as horsemen and for their dexterity with the composite bow, the Easterlings were fearsome warriors, and on many occasions have raided and invaded the western lands. Two significant invasions into the western lands took place in the Third-age.
NEW 32mm scale metal miniature released in August 2012.
Halbarad brought Aragorn a message from Arwen as well as a standard made by her, which Aragorn asked Halbarad to keep for him for a while.
Halbarad accompanied Aragorn to a chamber high in the Hornburg where Aragorn looked into the palantir and revealed himself to Sauron. That morning Aragorn decided to take the Paths of the Dead under the White Mountains and Halbarad and Grey Company went with him along with Legolas and Gimli. When they reached the entrance, Halbarad said, "This is an evil door, and my death lies beyond it. I will dare to pass it nonetheless..."
At midnight at the Stone of Erech, Aragorn summoned the Dead to fulfill their oaths and Halbarad unfurled Aragorn's standard, which appeared black with no device in the darkness. The Grey Company and the Army of the Dead passed through the lands of the South to Pelargir, where they captured the fleet of the Corsairs. Aragorn dismissed the Dead, and the Grey Company sailed up the Anduin.
When they arrived at the Pelennor Fields in the midst of the battle, Aragorn's standard was once again unfurled but now it was seen to bear the emblem of the White Tree of Gondor and the Seven Stars and Crown of Elendil. Halbarad carried the standard onto the battlefield, where he was killed.
