if the files are .jpeg and your filter for .jpg that does nothing.

This says don't get any thumb jpg's except for those in forum/gallery. Order
is important.

If you don't want any jpg except gallery but not thumb:
-*.jpg +*/forum/gallery/*.jpg -*thumb_*.jpg

By default httrack tries to download everything. You didn't say anything about
other files.

You MUST allow httrack to get the html files, or how can it possibly find the
image filenames?
You want nothing but the html and non-thumb jpg:
-* +mime:text/html +*/forum/gallery/*.jpg -*thumb_*.jpg
