Has there been any word on that MtO? I don't keep up with WarCom, so I don't know if they've mentioned it again at all.

There has not been...but they haven't outright denied it ever happening.

I would have thought that MTO is a bit more time consuming for the factory than new products or reprints of permanent items so is a low priority while they are still playing catch-up. Hopefully wont be too long now.

Bit of an odd one, but it looks like there's a new Bill the pony hidden in plain sight in the new book. (Old vs new pic)

Have they painted him with contrasts? His hide sure looks like it.

Nice model. Though I think I like his slightly dumpy older sculpt a bit more. (Not that you can ever find it for a reasonable price... )

Nice to see more of these type of things coming out, more for scenario play than battles.

It's nice to see the ME range get back to more profiles & sculpts for characters in the background of the books.

Surprised that they didn't just bring back the Bill the pony & Sam metal blister posted above though!

I do enjoy surprises, don't you? On the flip side, the first time GW have ever produced good looking giant bat creatures?

40mm bases by the looks of it?

They certainly look pretty promising; probably even more so when painted in less fleshy tones (although this certainly makes them look creepier...).

From Facebook somewhere I take it (as I can't find any mention and further info on Warhammer Community)?

Well, if you're named after a wolf not once, but even twice (if I'm not mistaken, both vargr and úlfr mean wolf in Old Norse, with similar words in modern Norwegian and Swedish), can you really consider yourself a bat? Never understood that name, though it may make more sense following some other etymology.

Just started a Gundabad army, I was wondering how to represent them on the battlefield. Let's hope they are excessively expensive...

Yeah gotta say, i'm not loving these. I wouldn't go so far as to say they're terrible, but I'd not be sorry to miss out on them. I haven't seen any of the Hobbit movies in full, so I can't comment on how true the likeness is. I'd like different angles though.

The bases however are quite nice.

I don't remember them from the films - Are they already in the army list?

Yes and yes. Legolas does some ninjitsu to kill one as part of the finale up in the ice.

For anyone wondering they are very accurate to the WETA designs from the movies. Whether you like the design they went with is another question entirely, but still.

I wonder if this means more Hobbit on the horizon? A revisited book like Ringbearer? ''Bilbo's journey'', or ''Mission to Erebor''?
There are still lots of models from those movies to release.

Can't say I remember exactly how they looked in the film and whether they had the same elongated snouts, but there were definitely big bat creatures. But yes, they already have rules, just no models to represent them (until now).

And the above means there is no need for these to necessarily tie in to any new book, as they're still filling in gaps in the range from previous ones. Perhaps there will be more Hobbit things alongside this release, maybe they just make and release these gap-fillers in between other projects. What else is missing? The main ones I can think of are pretty large, and the second of which so much so I'm not even sure what they would do in terms of creating a (vaguely affordable) model: the catapult troll and Azog's signal tower. (Not that being vaguely affordable is necessarily something GW/FW cares about too much, but from a commercial point of view they would still want a niche figure in a niche army in a niche range to make back its cost to produce.)
