New Prince August Factory mini-website

While Prince August has been in Cork for over 30 years, we have only had a visitor centre for about 12 of those years, and every year thousands of faithful tourists make their way to our little village of Kilnamartra ('Cill Na Martra' in irish) in County Cork in Ireland and visit our factory.

We have opened up a shop and miniature gallery and give every tourist the opportunity to see a free casting demonstration, which takes about 5 minutes. This is universally enjoyed as it is very unique and a lot of fun.

I have, on occassion, even allowed some interested customers to cast, under supervision, some miniatures themselves.

To further this experience I designed a new website, linked from Prince August's main homepage, or accessed via domain to supply any tourists all the information they might need when deciding to visit our Factory.

If anyone has any comments on the site, please contact me using the princeaugust contact emails. The Factory Visitor Centre is open 9 to 5 weekdays and additional times during June, July and August months.

Prince August Upcoming Warzone Mutant Chronicles releases.

Prince August has stated previously that they bought a huge stock of miniatures, some in blister packs and boxes and many loose in boxes in July '05.

We have listed the Warzone Mutant Chronicles figures on our mini-site called and it has proven very popular over the last 3 years.

Due to this popularity we have engaged in sorting out some of the metal miniatures in these boxes so we can sell them to fill gaps in our collection. Thankfully some were somewhat presorted into small boxes but the process is a difficult one.

So far we have released about 25 sets of figures, and plan more over the coming months. These are however limited stock only as we can only sell miniatures we judge in perfect condition. All the other loose figures will be melted down and used for making Mithril miniatures.

The next release of 10 more sets of figures from the Warzone Mutant Chronicles universe will be at the end of August. They should include some Tiger Dragons, Northern Sons, Brotherhood Arch primates, Cybertronic Mirrormen, Dark Legion Children of Ilian and Bauhaus Dragoons (wolfhead versions) as well as some others.

Lord of the Rings Knights of Dol Amroth miniatures available to preorder.

Mithril Miniatures, A Prince August website that specialises in Lord of the Rings collectable miniatures have added the option to preorder the newest release of 32mm scale figures at the end of July. They will ship in the middle of August.

The Knights of Dol Amroth were allies to Gondor and their leader, Prince Imrahil, lead about 700 men-at-arms and knights to defend Minas Tirith, Gondor's capital city, from the hordes of Mordor.

The release consists of 10 miniatures, all primed so that you can start painting them immediately. Some assembly might be needed for shields or arms with weapons. Glue is not included but we do recommend epoxy glue.

Prices start at 5.50 Euro for men-at-arms and 7.50 Euro for mounted knights.
Shipping worldwide, these magnificent soldiers will be a highlight of any LotR collection.

Mithril Miniatures has produced over 650 Lord of the Rings miniatures during the last 20 years that we have held the LotR license from Tolkien Enterprises.
