Mithril LOTR The White Council release: November 2010.

Amazing!, Stunning!, Incredible! Words fail to describe how wonderful the new Lord of the Rings miniature box set released in November 2010 by Mithril Miniatures is. Filled with detail lovingly crafted by our whizz sculptor, Chris Tubb. There are 5 characters, Gandalf the Grey, Saruman the White, Elrond, Galadriel and Cirdan, as well as 8 chairs, a large inscribed base and a matching table with 4 legs. It will be packed in a beautiful blue box. All for just 64.95 Euro.

The website has loads of photos from different angles and a downloadable pdf assembly guide (also included in the box).

"The White Council was formed in the Third-age to counter the re-emergence of the Dark Lord in Middle-earth. Its members comprised the Istari and the Wise amongst the Elven folk and Saruman was appointed as its head. Its first meeting was called by Galadriel in order to decide how best to discover the identity of the Necromancer of Mirkwood. By its second meeting in T.A. 2851 Saruman had already been corrupted by the Dark-lord through use of the Palantir and he blocked Gandalf's proposed attack on Dol Guldur.

The diorama depicts this second meeting of the White council in which Gandalf is proposing the attack to an unbending Saruman, while Galadriel, Elrond and Cirdan look on."

Many are specialists that enhance and add sparkle to a squad, like a sniper or medic but one of the rarest figures in the Warzone universe is finally available. It has never been available on before so its sure to get players excited. The Gray Ghost (or is it Grey Ghost?). This loner goes behind enemy lines to make their lives hell, and does it exceedingly well with Infiltrate and Camouflage as just two of her skillsets.

This is the last Warzone releases in 2010. If you missed out on any of these in blister format, you can at least get them in plastic bags now. However, as always, these are limited in quantity. So they can sell out at ANY time. If thats not a reason to do your Christmas shopping early I don't know what is.

Toy Soldier Factory Halloween Family Fun Day Review

Prince August Toy Soldier Factory ran on October 31st 2010 their 2nd Family Fun Day.
Hundreds of people turned up, and many children enjoyed the Cast and Paint Workshops as well as the re-enactment battles.
I made a video of one of the battles that occured during the day. The World War 2 soldier re-enactors are showing what happened late in the war when the Germans were looking for fuel for their war effort. The British are defending a fuel dump from the German riders.
The children around me had a positive reaction to the experience, cheering and laughing and generally finding the day memorable. What more can any event hope to accomplish?

If you missed out on this event, then you may wish to sign up to the Prince August Newsletter to avoid it happening again.
Prince August also has a facebook page, so if you are into this social network craze then become a fan today.
