ACCESSORIES MAKE A DEFRANCE ! 4 Years, 1 Month ago  
I've always been impressed with the quality and realism of DF pieces/sets and have had difficulties finding accessories to match that standard. Especially since I can not paint! However, there are several pieces now up for sale on eBay that I think match the standards of DF in quality and realism.

They're made by Thomarillon and painted by someone in France named YanSolo (that's the reason for subject line).

Although I want to buy several, actually ALL of these pieces, they're too expensive to import from France, at least for me.

Is there anyone here, in the States, that paints Thomarillon pieces and is willing to sell them for less than what's listed on eBay? Or are those pieces properly priced?

I just finished painting about 100 Thomorillion pieces over the past 2 months. Before I started I would have considered myself a novice painter, at best. After watching this 3-part tutorial video (~2.5 hours long) I was able to paint my pieces at a level I would say is a notch under the guy selling those n eBay. It really isn't that hard, but it does take a lot of time.

I don't know if this helps, but just wanted to let you know that painting minis isn't that difficult, even for newbies. You can find lots of folks who charge to paint minis, but it won't be cheap.

There is another company that I believe is affiliated with Thomorillion
and sells some products here in the states. There are only a few pieces
but they are a high quality resin instead of plaster like Thomorillion.
I'm not too sure how deep the line is but it looks like there are more
and more pieces coming availale all the time. I have five different pieces
of furniture and they are really high quality. Much higher than grendel
as I havent seen one air bubble on the model.

Troll and Toad usually has them but I just cleaned out a few models.
This other store sells them too but Troll and Toad is a bit cheaper on
the parts and shipping.

Search for "Ziterdes" for some goodies.

Darn. I bought a ton of stuff from Thomarillion, all plaster. Good detail, but wow is it fragile. One drop and a piece will shatter into a million pieces. I've even bumped them into other pieces, not gently, and they chip. After painting them I sealed them 3-4 times, 3 gloss, then 1 flat. Hopefully that makes them tougher.

Well, Ziterdes only has a few of the Thomorillion pieces right now but I'm hoping they will be making more. I really want the complete library
set at some point even it has to be plaster. Thomorillion really
has some awesome stuff. I'm saving up for a big order while I practice
my painting on less important stuff.

I would buy Thomarillion pieces but they're just too fragile for my group - not that they throw things around but have heavy hands. That's why I love Dwarven Forge pieces; unless you deliberately set out to break them they don't break into a million pieces from just one drop.

Ziterdes seems to be a great alternative to Thomarillion (Resin instead of Plaster) and I too, hope they also come out with a complete library set!
