Rhudaur Northman Mercenary | New LOTR Mithril miniature 2016

Mithril Miniatures released in January 2016 last January's winning idea, submitted by 'orc', a Fellowship member.
Rhudaur was the perfect land for mercenaries as law and order had broken down there, governorship was non existent and there was a steady diet of conflict between other states like Arthedain and Cardolan against the evils of the Witch-king. Only the bravest or most fortunate survived in such chaos as loyalties shifted like the tides.
This 32mm scale metal miniature is primed and will require a little assembly.

New Mithril Releases | Thorin and Roac & Angbor of Lamedon metal figures available in December 2015.

Mithril Miniatures has released in December 2015 two more winning ideas from their Fellowship club. These ideas were suggested by and voted on by members of that club last year.
Thorin and Roac | Mithril Miniatures metal figure.

The first one is Thorin and Roac. Roac is an intelligent Raven that acted as an intelligence gathering agent for the Dwarves and especially Thorin Oakenshield.

Angbor of Lamedon | Mithril Miniatures metal figure.

The second release is Angbor of Lamedon, a Lord of one of Gondor's provinces. He lead his small army against the landing parties of Corsairs during the War of the Ring until releaved by Aragorn with his army of dead. He then brought his forces to the capital, Minas Tirith, to assist in resisting the besieging Mordorian armies.

Both of these fine miniatures were designed by Chris Tubb and will require a small amount of assembly. They are pre-primed.

New Christmas Decoration moulds - Female Carol Singer, Snowman and Child Angel

Prince August has already a wonderful collection of Christmas decoration moulds but these three new ones further enhance the choice you have when it comes to decorate your Christmas tree. These have different details on both sides. You can cast from each mould hundreds of times using our Model Metal.

The new Xmas decorations shown here are the Female Carol Singer, Child Angel with Star and Snowman with Top Hat. Each mould has one decoration. These are flat figures when cast. On average you should be able to cast about three figures per 125 gram ingot, provided the ingates are remelted each time.

RTE Nationwide coverage of the Toy Soldier Factory and Battle of Waterloo Exhibit 14th October 2015

At the start of August 2015 RTE showed interest in including our Toy Soldier Factory in one of their upcoming Nationwide programs. Several staff were interviewed and so was André Rudolph, the creator of the huge Battle of Waterloo diorama currently on exhibit in our visitor center.

Finally on October 14th 2015, the program aired and we were shown in the second half of that episode. We are very pleased with the segment and are grateful to those involved with RTE for having shared our business with the rest of their audience.

With that in mind Prince August has cut the prices of their bargain starter kits by 50% until noon on October 21st 2015 UTC+1.

New Release | 3 Battle of Waterloo leaders as 25mm scale primed metal figures

Prince August recently started hosting a huge diorama of the Battle of Waterloo at their Toy Soldier Factory Visitor Center, and realised that they had never made the three leaders of the major powers that took part in that historical battle, even though they had a wide selection of rubber moulds for casting the soldiers and regular officers.
This inspired them to produce these and make them available to allow other wargamers or historical diorama builders to have these legendary men as part of their vision.
The three leaders are as follows: Prussian Field Marshal Blücher, French Emperor Napoleon Bonaparte and the Allied British Commander, Arthur Wellesley, 1st Duke of Wellington.

French Emperor Napoleon Bonaparte
These three figures are mounted and pre-primed so as soon as you get them you can paint them. The rider and horse are not glued or cast together to allow for an easier time in painting all the details before final assembly.
Allied British Commander Arthur Wellesley, 1st Duke of Wellington
Prince August has also catered for those collectors that do not want to paint the figures themselves and have options where a customer can choose whether they want a hand painted figure, antique finished figure or the default primed figure. A simple tick box makes this selection a snap.

For the next 4 days or so Prince August is also giving the primed figures away for FREE when someone purchases one of their Army Packs. For each army pack chosen there is an option to select ONE leader as well. An army pack is a great bundle deal that includes metal with a selection of moulds at a low price that allows you to cast an army at unbeatable rates.
This offer expires at noon on October 13th 2015 UTC+1.

New Mithril Release | Lord Golasgil of Anfalas

Golasgil, Lord of Anfalas | New Mithril Miniature
Golasgil, Lord of Anfalas.

Last years Fellowship August winner is finally released. This highly detailed mounted Gondorian Lord is Golasgil, one of the lesser known lords of Gondor, who lead an army to aid his capital of Minas Tirith during the War of the Ring. His forces were defeated in the Battle of Plennor Fields but it is believed that he survived that encounter as no record is provided of his death. Anfalas is one of the poorer regions and thus his army largely consisted of hunters and farmers rather than warriors, which unsurprisingly resulted in their destruction when facing crazed and fanatical Mordorian Orcs and their allies.
The fellowship member responsible for submitting this fine idea is 'mcdsean'. This was his first victory and first idea, although it took several tries to win the day.
This figure is 32mm scale, and is primed but it will require assembly before painting.

New Mithril Release | Eldacar in combat with Castamir

Eldacar in combat with Castamir
Eldacar in combat with Castamir.
 MS614: Eldacar slays Castamir.

Eldacar was the twenty-first king of Gondor, and during his turbulent reign  a civil war broke out in the southern realm, which is known in the annals as the Kin-strife. Led by Castamir,  Gondor’s  captain of ships, the rebels besieged  Eldacar’s capital which in those days was Osgiliath. Their chief grievance was that Eldacar had married a Northmen wife and had, in their eyes, diluted the purity of Dunedain blood. Initially driven out of Osgiliath and forced to take refuge in in Rhovanion, Eldacar mustered his forces and marched south once more to confront the rebels. At a great battle at the crossings of Erui in 1447TA. Eldacar won the day and slew Castamir with his own hand, thus re-establishing the legitimate line of Gondor.

Mithril Miniatures released this double figure set in September 2015. It was the winning idea from July 2014. These miniatures are 32mm scale metal figures that have a primer added.
