Broggha was a strong, cunning leader of the Hillmen, and gained power through brutal means. He is shown here holding aloft the severed head of one of his foes, gloating over his victory.
Tolkien Enterprises have approved this release this week, so we have made it available to our Fellowship members again.
Shipping begins early next week. Unfortunately some of our international customers may not receive it in time for the 25th due to the final shipping dates to some destinations.
Tuesday, 1 December 2009
Any customers who have ordered it already will be notified of the delay.
Mithril Miniatures appreciates the loyalty of our Fellowship club members and we have worked to produce a key character, Isildur, and will GIVE it to our members for FREE when they have bought all our 2007 releases (12 figures).
Many of our customers have all the releases so all they need to do is select this miniature with their next order.
Isildur defeated Sauron in battle by cutting off Sauron's ring finger, which separated him from the One Ring containing most of his power. Unfortunately Isildur ignored Elrond's advise to destroy the ring in Mount Doom and instead he kept it as an heirloom.
This resulted in his doom and the eventual rise in power of Sauron again.
So what was the 2007 releases in the Fellowship club?
- MS465 Corsair Admiral.
- MS466 Thranduil's Standard Bearer.
- MS467 Ent Trumpeting.
- MS468 Haradrian Champion on Warcamel.
- MS469 Lossoth Hunter.
- MS470 Aragorn & Eomer meet in midst of battle.
- MS471 Troll Drummer.
- MS482 Forging of Anduril.
- MS483 Annatar fighting Celebrimbor.
- MS494 Haradrian Chieftain.
- MS496 Witch-King in his true form.
- MS497 Theodred, Prince of Rohan.
Just get at least one of each to qualify, if you already have them then you qualify anyway.
What if you want 2 of this bonus figure? Well if you have duplicates of the others then you get a duplicate of this one FREE as well.
The Fellowship club is made up of the elite Lord of the Rings collectors who love Mithril miniatures and J.R.R. Tolkien's writings, and every month they submit their unique ideas to our forum and vote on them. The winning idea is produced and only available to the members. If you are interested in becoming one of these elite collectors apply to Mithril Miniatures Fellowship club today.
More info about this release: Angmar was a land in the far north of the Misty Mountains founded by the Nazgul Witch-king. The ringwraith serves Sauron so Angmar waged war on any allies of Gondor near them.
In the Battle of Fornost the forces of Angmar were defeated and the Witch-king fled to Mordor, leaving his realm to its fate.

Before I paint the metal colour parts of a model I first shake the pot of metallic paint well for at least 20 seconds, ensure a reasonable consistency (no tackiness or wateriness), then shake again before using.
Then I ensure there are no obvious specks of grit in the paint by spreading it out thinly on a palette to test it.
I have greatly improved my metal paint finish on my tricky models, such as this Celeborn, using these principles to the best of my ability, though some spots on him were still a bit gritty to a lesser extent than before. Lightly skimming these areas with paint greatly flattened them; and a careful even rub of a rubber helped where the grit was more isolated.

- Did you attend?
- Did your kids enjoy the free painting and casting workshops?
- Are there still traces of face paint on your childs face?
- Did you take some wacky photos beside our new mural or with our fantastic cutouts (Orcs, Hobbits, Female warriors and Elven archers.).
- Did you talk with the Roman Legionaries and WW2 Soldier re-enactors that had attended the event?
I made a flicker photostream of most of the photos I took on the day.

Mithril Miniatures has released 10 new 32mm scale metal miniatures depicting the Rohirrim defending against the horde of half-orcs (Uruk-Hai) from Isengard. Saruman had bred these monsters to be stronger, bigger and far more resistant to sunlight than any previous incarnations. A huge army had been dispatched to destroy the men of Rohan.
Helm's Deep was a strong fortress that had served Rohan well in the past against their enemies (Dunlendings) and the people fled there to resist the dark army of the wizard. Gamling the old was put in charge of 1000 men, mostly youths and old men, to man the outer defences of Helm's Dike.
This is part one of the Helm's Deep series. Mithril has a bulk discount offer of 10% off the individual miniatures cost when you buy 3 of each type.

'Boromir Blowing the great horn of Gondor' (MS506) shows Boromir shortly before his death as he sought aid to repel the host of Isengard Orcs that were sent to kidnap any hobbits they could find. Saruman wanted the One Ring but did not trust his servants with that knowledge. Boromir tried to protect Merry and Pippin but was overwhelmed. His other companions, Aragorn, Legolas and Gimli, were away searching the forest for Frodo at that time and arrived to late to prevent the tragedy from occuring.
