That sure is a surprise release. Wonder what pricetag they'll put on it; really no idea what to expect there.

By the way, link should be: https://www.warhammer-community.com/2020/09/13/sunday-preview-an-arena-of-death-and-an-epic-quest/

Well poo...

I got all excited for a quick second thinking they'd release some cool new terrain. It is nice to see these available again, but yeah, the price tag will be interesting.

I'm really interested to see how the new Quest book compares with the old Journey Books!

Hm, the wraith legendary legion strongly suggests that the original mounted wraiths and the witch king could come back soon. That would be nice, i always wanted a complete set of nine.

They posted this on Facebook. It's just one of the Legendary Legion bonuses for Lurtz's Scouts.

I know this is really obtuse and probably can't be answered; but does any one know what sort of foliage those small bushes are made of? I love them.

Can't answer definitively, but it's likely something along the lines of Woodland Scenic's clump foilage.

Whomever creates the terrain for the Middle-Earth team at GW does a fabulous job.

$25, £15 for the Mines of Moria Terrain.

Hopefully it's a general release that can be got for 20% off I'd pick up 2 at £12 each.

That was a lot cheaper than i was expecting. I was thinking around £25, so that's very nice. But i expect it to be direct being an old kit like that.

Is the book $50 or $40?

With terrain being in part being grey does that mean it's direct only? Or is grey some other sign?

What's this? A gentleman with a lamp? And some possible new scenery hidden in plain view?

This is the kinda good gak I want to see for Middle Earth. Unusual, no real use models that just add flavour and look good on a shelf.

We need more peasants!

Yes, in the films he was the gatekeeper at Bree who was overrun by the Nazgul.
In the literature, he is Harry Goatleaf and he is also the gatekeeper at the West-gate of Bree. It is heavily implied that he has been coerced by the Nazgul in to acting against the four Hobbits as they pass through Bree. After the destruction of the Ring and the Fellowship's inevitable breakup, he takes up arms against the Men of Bree with the Southrons who are acting on Saruman's petty revenge. I hope Bob and Nob make an appearance too, I quite like this little characters being made available.

That does bring up an interesting question of which list he'll belong too. Becoming part of the ruffians perhaps?

The other two characters proved a lot of fun to write – Harry Goatleaf, the gatekeeper of Bree, and the jolly, yet forgetful, Barliman Butterbur! Both of these characters feature in the Nazgûl in Bree Scenario, but are also classed as Wanderers in the Wild for Matched Play. They can be used in many army lists, though both thrive when taken alongside the Fellowship, particularly Barliman Butterbur. Harry Goatleaf can also be taken as an Evil model in the Sharkey’s Rogues army list or The Chief’s Ruffians Legendary Legion – after all, he does side with Saruman in the books.

Not sure I've ever seen it before. Would be very tempting if it is re-released!
