I grabbed 5 riders of the dead and a King of the dead (to pad out the dead from the new starter ) and a copy of Battle Companies.

Now I need time to assemble and paint... Wish Santa could deliver that.

Has anyone else just had a shipping email for their pre-orders for this week?? A bunch of metals I ordered on Saturday have just been listed as dispatched. Not that i'm complaining, just confused.

The speed with which many of these brand new, rereleased models are now out of stock is maddening. I have missed out on several key models, including the Khandish King on Chariot simply due to being unable to get online during the holiday weekend. 22 of the 37 new models are now out of stock! Frustration level HIGH.

Well look on the bright side; it means the game is alive and kicking, despite what the naysayers believe.

Very true. I suppose this means the wait for another production run will be much shorter than the last.

I got a reply from FW. Apparently it's an early release for PAX and will go on general sale soon.

Fantastic! Gondor are my favourite faction and even though I've got all the older sculpts painted up for my army I'm not complaining having these new ones. The Middle-Earth team continue to do fine work.

Really like that Thorin and Azog piece, paintjobs and the models themselves. Amazing work on the ice as well.

I was always impressed by the Fellowship Boromir model when GW first previewed it in late 2001. I felt it was a true example of what talented sculptors and painters could achieve at the top of their game.

That model still remains one of the best single feats of miniature design I've seen in my experience (and it's incredibly simple). That original Fellowship set in general is beautiful and they ('they' being Brian Nelson I believe) managed to capture the actor's features to a degree of detail I wouldn't have thought possible in that scale. I hope it's made available again at some point as the plastic Moria one (in my opinion) is just not on the same planet.

Recently picked up the breaking of the fellowship version of Boromir... cannot believe how well they have captured Sean Bean's likeness- same for the metal Gandalf the white model.

Speaking of Gandalf the white- the new plastic version looks absolutely fantastic, as do the new resin characters that FW are putting out- despite the questionable paint jobs.


Now, i was watching the TOS stream on saturday morning and heard Adam Troke? saying that his favorite plastic sprue ever made was actually yet to be released and would be in the next couple of months, im very new to MESBG, have there been any rumors as to what models will be coming next?

Yeah, those original Fellowship character sculpts were amazing. I'm fairly certain I got them all with the BGiME magazine, but I'd very likely buy a re-released set just to paint them again with a decade and a half's more experience.

I did actually repaint my Moria Gandalf recently and the likeness on that face really does hold up, it's far better than the plastic one they released in the Hobbit starter.

As for new plastic sprues, I don't think there are many solid rumours around, but if I had to take a guess I'd say we were going to see some of the resin Battle of the Five Armies stuff redone in plastic, maybe Gundabad Orcs or the Laketown survivors. Hobbit-era Elves already have 2 plastic sets, and the Iron Hills Dwarves are well-covered by Forge World releases that are recent enough I can't see them being replaced.

All the other plastics have also been reboxed, I believe, so I can't see them redoing, say, Mordor Orcs or Rohirrim Warriors despite how those sets have aged.

If it's to be in the next couple of months, then it's going to be to do with Gondor at War. So I would lean towards a new plastic Boromir. It seems the most reasonable for a Gondor themed supplement.

The Armoured Boromir with banner has been a mix of banner/non banner and the foot with banner has been missing for some time (which is annoying because... why wouldn't you take it assuming it's retained its rules this edition). So hopefully you're correct (provided it's decent). Failing that, a plastic trebuchet would make a lot of sense too.

Very impressed with the new miniature announcements. Hopefully FW (and GW) strike a good balance between creating new models from the books/films as well as revisiting characters such as Denethor and Theoden!

Also eagerly awaiting the next wave of re-releases sometime next year, especially if they concern Isengard (Wildmen of Dunland, Dunlendings, Feral Uruks, etc), and putting back out miniatures which were fully available last year (Goblin Blackshields, and Mordor Uruks for example).

How versatile are the Osgiliath ruins? I was thinking of picking up the triple pack while they are in stock, but I have never really seen anyone take multiple copies and make each look different - my google image search would lead me to believe that most people only buy one set or scratch build their own.
