Putting the ring on doesn't matter, carrying it is what affects you.

Oooh. My apologies. I misunderstood where you were coming from. I was referring to only those who wore the ring in the movies.

Yes, yes Sam should absolutely be in the ring bearers pack then, in that case.

the Ring Bearers pack includes invisible versions of all the models in the game that can take and wear The One Ring and become invisible while doing so. It's a funsies pack so if the model puts it on during the course of the game, you can put the clear version of the model down in it's place.

Outside of a special scenario, Sam cannot.

Thanks to Tim G on the GBHL page, we have some more info on those made-to-order/event exclusive characters, which clearly have been shipped out very rapidly indeed.
Apparently, Tauriel has an optional arm with dagger, while Legolas' pose is not quite what I thought from looking at the picture - they really could have done with a better, or just extra angle for those shots.

Oh probably because the old GW one's were vastly superiour to the gakky FW ones, but they want you to buy them instead?

They are repacking them in three sets of three Ring Wraiths rather than individual packs.

After Christmas? Hm, that's a bit far away. Might have to try and get a third party to mail them, but i appreciate they're actually being put as generally available for a while.

BTW reportedly at nova nazgul's were 40$ which means 25£/32.5€. Pretty darn good savings. At pounds it's 51£ worth of stuff at 25£ and euro's 32.5€ for 19.5€. Makes me feel bit better of having them together. If you want 2 anyway this is cheaper than old even if you bin the one. And selling 2 and keeping one you don't need to get much to break even anyway.

Personally I'll end with duplicate witch king but can swap weapons to have wysiwyg so no waste(particularly foot version with sword is handy) so only duplicate betrayer but I'm sure I don't mind getting both the missing ones for 13€ extra(rather than 19.5€ 2nd would have costed before)

Oh. Those are nice ghosts. Nice surprise release (at least for me)- every so often LotR coughs up some really nice kits that I don't expect.

Did they ever give an ETA on the Rohan buildings?

Probably around November time. About 3 months or so after the announcement at Nova.

I'm afraid I'm not following that conclusion. Other things previewed at Nova are already out, others are slated for October, more are still up in the air. They only thing that's definitely November is the Sisters box, and they went all explicit about that.

Things they preview at events generally come out within 3 months, so they should be out by the end of November.

Right... that's what has me confused, because that isn't what happens.

Last year- big reveal was the ork vehicles, which came out in October.

This year's previews:
Shrike: already out (September)
Beastgrave: already out (September).
Warcry book: already out
Psychic Awakening, part 1- probably October
Necromunda video: feth knows

'Three months' as a ball park is clearly not accurate. (though the two of you are saying different things- 'about 3 month or so after' versus 'by the end of november.' Yours is technically inclusive, which makes it a little more vague.

We don’t know, is the answer.

I'm sure I remember Andy H saying the warhounds weren't previewed when AT was released because they fell outside the 3 month preview window.

The 3 month is basically maximum. Not "they come out exactly 3 months" but that "after 3 months you will have them by latest".

So yeah thev couldn'' have shown warhounds as that would break that rule. Releasing it same month doesn't

there is also time line exceptions for the stuff going out to non gamestore retail (New York Toy Fair for stuff like those B&N exclusive sets) because the general toy trade expects a longer window

True. Also either FW/Specialist games seems to operate bit different or 3rd renders shown don't count as 3 month trigger as vulcan megabolter for reaver and gatling blasters for warlord carapace were shown in spring and vulcan came to preorder last friday and gatlings are still nowhere to be seen(much to my chagrin...)

Well within 35 days is the GW line. But I know one person who got them already. Anyway still far from unusual wait so far

It's not the first time something has been priced wrong at Nova.

Be very surprised if you're getting 3 wraiths on foot and 3 mounted for as little as £25

Just got a shipping confirmation (4 weeks after ordering to the day).

The Forge World "Made to Order" figures, on the other hand, have been dispatched the very day after ordering; though those of course are just the event figures of which piles had been cast already, so that's perhaps not a surprise.
Well, I was a bit surprised it was that quickly, but had not expected those to actually take the maximum advertised time at any rate.
