So, I am not a Mithril Miniatures collector, but I watch occasionally on eBay, mostly for some basic understanding when I get around to that part of the Collector's Guide. For the most part, they seem reasonable (a few pounds each), and interesting tiny little figurines (for role playing games, but when painted professionally qualify as art I think.)

Then, this auction:

Aragorn 1988 Christmas figurine

£1,070.00 (over $2000) for a 54mm lead figure, unpainted.

Anyone have a link to a Mithril Miniatures fan website/guide? Anyone around here collect these? I'd love to know what's out there, etc. Clearly I am in the dark a bit on this particular market.

Saw this item up on eBay today:

Wojna o Pierscien game (War of the Ring)

Thought I'd share for srodziemie - feel free to announce your own auctions! It's a re-release of the SPI War of the Rings game, but the board, artwork, etc, are different. I like it.

Hi Parmastahir,

hate to shake the tree again when Italy is getting all your attention, but I ran across this reference for a Russian fanzine that has a calendar in it (Tret'ya Tema or "Third Theme" from the Mellon fan group in the 1993 special issue).

Marquette catalog entry for Tret'ya Tema

I've asked Sumner Hunnewell if he has any further information on it that might help.

The Fanzine section has been updated with most of the contents of the Marquette collection, as a first pass. I have also added a number of zines that I have/know of that are not in Marquette, and in addition I have started to add single issue descriptions for some zines. Please let me know of anything I have gotten wrong, or if you have areas you can contribute to! Also, Marquette only goes through the late eighties for most zines (with the Hunnewell collection also active in the 1992-1993 timeframe), so there is a gap around 1990 and from 1993 to the present that I have not filled in yet. Delve into those collections and let me know what you have! Especially international issues.

Thanks,
Jeremy
