Neat, actually a few bits on there I never got before. Looks like I can finally do that camel cavalry.

Hm, were Elrond and Gil-Galad and the Bosun and captain released in resin before they went oop? I could have sworn they were only metal.


Yep! In the last wave of Finecast redos. Along with like the Hasharin 2012 resculpt.

Saw ‘Blackstone Fortress’ and was like ‘HOLY HELL! THEY’RE RE-RELEASING BFG MODELS!!!!11!!ONE!’

And then I remembered (and read) ‘it’s a book, not the model’ and then there was sadness.

But hey, the Arnor models will find a welcome home in my house, so that’s something!

If I've got a trade you're interested in but you don't have anything on my wanted list, just shoot me a PM and ask! I'm easily distracted!

I'm usually the last person to slate Forge World's paint jobs, but good lord that face on Legolas.



I'm happy to see Arathorn/Halbarad back. Two of my favourite LotR models. Hell, the whole Arnor release - Good and Evil - was spectacular.

Spoiler:

Those are the existing plastics that were released by Games Workshop back when 'The Desolation of Smaug' was released. They're not new sculpts or paint jobs.

Starting to get worried about Thrydan Wolfsbane and the Dunlendings/Wild Men. I really hope they're not getting updated by ForgeWorld.

But yay, more Harad and Khandish models are back!

That suggestion for Smaug is horrible. Having another dragon trundling around behind him is possibility the most lore breaking thing they've ever come up with.

I get it if it's an availability thing, but why wouldn't you want updated sculpts?

Legolas there is a plastic kit. He was awful when first shown during Desolation of Smaug.

Eh. Let people have fun and experiment. Having got Smaug, the idea of him leading around a bunch of lesser cold drakes amuses me I have to be honest.

Updated sculpts in plastic? Sure!

Updated sculpts in resin at slowed ForgeWorld costs? No thanks! I don't want to spend around $10 per model for basic, most likely monopose, warrior models. I don't even want to pay $60 for Dain and his piggy, and I love that model.

It's definitely a thousand times more lore-breaking than "all evil can ally" and "all good can ally" that existed for the previous 17 years.
How dare they post a suggestion for Matched Play games that have nothing to do with Narrative games?

That is fantastic! Thankfully, I've still got almost all of the Rohirrim from the box to paint. I do however have about 30 Gondorian Knights that I wished I'd had this for before doing though!

Where are you buying mate? Some online store or through GW direct?

The book, Gandalf and the dice through Element games. All three for about £50. Everything else direct as they're direct only anyway. And still kept their old prices, so cheap as.

Ok thanks I thought so but making sure there are no 'hidden' stores which sell GW web exclusives

Must say that GW has such a great and wide range of minis that it is hard to resist. Shame other online retailers have such a limited offer

Great move in a series of moves correcting some of the Hobbit era missteps.

Awesome to see as the game system is easily the best GW has put out and Middle Earth's imagery looks fantastic on the table.

Building up my forces again and awaiting a couple key minis return for my Elves.
