Right behind you.

Had it confirmed via the WHTV Facebook team that the Ranger Captains are resin and coming from Forge World.

I like resin. Dont like the price tag though..I assume it will be FW resin? hopefully they wont gouge them.. the LOTR resins are quite reasonably priced compared to the heresy stuff.

Yes, Forge World resin. I'd had it originally saying "from the FW team" because I thought I'd posted it there rather than the WHTV bit.

Having picked up some of the newer resin releases from FW, I am looking forward to these Rangers. Guritz and Gothmog's Lieutenant were a joy to paint.

Every single FW LOTR resin miniature has been absolutely stunning and, as Eirikr said, a joy to paint.

Haven't had the chance to paint any of the FW LotRs minis yet, but i'm really looking forward to picking up Elfhelm and Diorwine, as I really like the foot versions of both models

New collection of MTO's and the compilation book coming up. Probably grab Theoden, Gamling and the battering ram this time. Not entirely sure why Haldir's elves have come around for a second time already. But i do enjoy a good compilation book, got the original three that i re-read quite often.


What ever happened to this batch of Made To Order? Did GW put it on hold, or just cancel it?

On hold most likely. Likely past 9th ed 40k for one. Gw is having enough supply issues as is(just see how in lotr nearly all out of stock) without this too. They could not fulfill it soon anyway so better not to ask money yet either.

I'm keenly waiting for them to get that latest MtO up and running. Got a chunk of cash put aside for it.
I want that bloody Gamling, if nothing else.

Just tried to buy some Far Harad models and there's only the Mumak and Mumak Mahud on the US site. Half Trolls sold out and everything else has been taken down. Impossible to build an army now. Was there any mention of plastics coming soon anywhere?

I think with Indomitus going onto Made to Order itself, warehouse production will be even more restricted going forward, which will have an impact on how often GW replenishes Middle Earth plastics. And if the metal miniatures are made in the same buildings, and they're still trying to socially distance workers, I can see the MTO being pushed back a long way now.
The reason I think this is because most of the Middle Earth metals I've been after have been continuously OOS since they reopened, which leads me to believe that almost no metal miniatures are being done currently. So GW will want to get the existing MESBG metals back in stock first, before worrying about having to supply a load of MTO metals.

Plastics for Middle Earth? Not really a thing these days outside of terrain and new hero sculpts sadly.

Far Harad bar a couple of exceptions were rotated off sale last winter. There's every chance that GW bring them back at some stage, but that could be a long way off.
Best bet would be probably third party miniatures- Unreleased Miniatures sell a few sculpts, and then you could look at any ranges that have Zulu or warrior tribe type lines and convert those as proxies.

I believe what was said about ranges is that if they were pulled, they're in the far distance to get redone. So far-harad and arnor likely aren't even on the radar. In terms of plastics, who knows? But in terms of kits, it seems to be the case of getting rid of as much metal and resin as possible and giving Rohan the initial priority. Presumably because of the starter box.

As Elevenses referred to, there is a bit of a rotation system going on. Apparently, they're limited in how many product codes they can have in production, which is for example why they've been repackaging some kits to combine various blisters into one. They're also switching some kits out of productions and bringing others back in, which is how the Far Harad ones were temporarily dropped some time ago. Doesn't so much mean they will have upcoming new models; more that they're not related to any current supplements or things they're focussing on. They've also done some Made-to-Order models specifically to get them into players hands without fully bringing them back into production. Best bet at the moment is to hope for one of those, or the return of the range when they're rotated back in. Wouldn't hold my breath for either, though...

As for plastics... well, there was a time any new plastics seemed impossible - they only did the Lake-town set because it was almost wholly created earlier. Now, there is more new scenery and new plastic character sculpts. Perhaps they'll do new troops again too... one day. Also not holding my breath for that though!

GW did a lot of new plastic kit during the last year (mainly heroes and scenery as someone said) while new troop where produced by Forge World. So lot of new products for this line proving in could sell well. Clearly 40k takes precedence but I am sure we will see news soon and maybe far Harad will be available again when a new supplement will see the light.

Tbh, in terms of plastic troop kits, I don't think we are likely to see until any a possible Games Workshop/Amazon 2nd Age Series joint venture.
The most likely plastic troop kits for the current license IMO would be if Games Workshop revisited the Last Alliance- Rivendell & Numenor could really do with fresh sculpts and new options. Plus Anarion is mentioned in the Armies of LOTR book for Isildur's profile IIRC, so I feel like the Middle Earth team would definitely like to make a supplement for it.

Perfect, finally!
I am halfway through a box of Rangers, these may be the capstone to the project.

Rules up for the rangers.
They seem rather fun and nicely done, should be fun to add to a ranger force.

I must have those models.

Also, I don't know why but the bit in "Evolution" where Seann William Scott, Orlando Jones, and David Duchovony are hunting a weird alien critter through a mall immediately sprang to mind from the "Birdcalls" rule.

Quest up next week:

Also the old Moria scenery getting re-released which is surprising. Was kind of hoping for the MTO to have come back with this however.
