I'm sure they have plenty of "Limited Edition" Radagasts they still need to offload.

Why would they? Everything that was in it is available.
Also, it supposedly was one of their worst starters for sales. Which kinda makes sense since it was for the Goblintown bit of the movie only. A starter built around the Battle of Moria with the dwarfs and orcs would likely have been more interesting.

Not gonna lie, if I had to hope against hope against hope for anything...it would be a new Battle of the Last Alliance box, with new Numenorean and High Elf models as the centerpiece.

You can throw sarcasm around all you want, but that's actually a very sought after model now.

We're all sitting around waiting to see if GW has anything to do with the new Amazon series. If it's set in the Second Age like Amazon said, it'd be perfect to get new Numenorean and High Elf models.

Looks like the MTO from before the virus is finally back. https://www.warhammer-community.com/2020/11/15/sunday-preview-half-time-on-the-gridiron/

Although, not sure if it's still an MTO. Can't see any mention of it.

Doesn't look like an MTO - "There’s no pre-order window on these kits, they’re available right from next Saturday. Act quickly though, as there are a limited number of each so they’re sure to sell out fast."

It's not a Made to Order, the stuff is just available from Saturday onwards but in limited quantities.

No Ent, so not the MtO. Must just be the ones they'd cast up in advance?

Rather unfortunate. Don't know how it's going to be allocated, hopefully being in Australia gives me a fair chance to get what I wanted.

EDIT: Missed the Ent in the text, apparently I have a very image based reading comprehension.

Damn, I was hoping this bunch of releases would hold off until Christmas!

That said it doesn't appear to be a Made to Order event, so I presume these are just being added back into the range for the time being?
If that's the case, hopefully they don't remove anything from the range at the same time!

Edit: ah, "be sure to get them whilst stocks last" in the preview video. Great....

Am I thinking of a different miniature, or was that Gimli on Uruk-Hai originally a limited edition model?

Looks like the (tiny) Treebeard model has been discontinued so I wouldn't be surprised to see a new one announced at next Saturdays preview event (they have confirmed the preview includes ME), perhaps along with a new Ent kit.

Disapointed that these are not going MTO as will be a scrabble to get the items before they sell out.

It definitely was- IIRC in 2005 when GW released the original big blue rulebook.

If you hadn't pointed it out here, I wouldn't have realized the Ent was included either. In fairness, it's the only mini that's not pictured (I think, unless I overlooked another one in the text) and it's a three-letter word, so hey ho. Still, the description does make it sound like they cast up some lot and decided to get rid of them to free storage space - I definitely would have preferred the previously announced MtO. Wonder how long these will take to sell out...

I'm fairly confident it went in and out of production a few times too. It was initially a limited edition, but at some point was regularly available online too for some time, and I seem to recall it returned in production for a while later, then gone for years again...

The Ent is shown in the video but not elsewhere.

I think the 'limited quantities' were them having started building up a buffer of stock for the Made to Order release and just going for a bit.

Probably the key models to go for on the day will be Gamling (as an unreleased piece) the Ent (as available for a really short time originally) and the battering ram, as everyone seems to love that. Those i would expect to be the fastest movers.

Agreed about Gimli originally having a large or multiple production runs. I have seen plenty of sealed blisters on Ebay over the years, and got one myself last year for less than £15.

I'd say to hope that GW don't overcharge on Gimli, Gamling and the Ent, but I can already picture typical MTO price mark ups on these and the other lines.

About fragging time.

Wish they'd given a precise time on Saturday. Is there a certain time when these sort of things go live?



If nothing else, I want one of those mounted Gamlings. Although if the price is right then i'll have me some of everything.

Not entirely sure about Gimli on the Uruk, but I know Ugluk started out as limited to the Strategy Battle Game magazine and didn't see general release until a few years after.

Yeah, no clue!
For that Gamling though, i'll stay up 24hrs straight to get my hands on him.

No need for 24h 9am-noon ought to be enough. Finland gets at noon sincb wb get them same time as uk which is 10am(finland being 2 hours ahead).

Shouldn't be vastly different. I would start pressing f5 at 9am and if not there wait for next full hour and repeat.

I wouldn't've described it as a lewd model, Kan - it isn't like he's taking his armour off, or anything like that...

I really can’t see anything getting previewed that isn’t a new FW resin character or two. It would be nice to see a new plastic kit or even a different starter set of sorts. I like the idea of the battle of Moria as someone mentioned above. I wouldn’t mind getting back into LoTR but I was last playing when it was very hard to get models and you needed a ton of books to play (the small blue book era). It’s nice things have been consolidated, and the game at its core is awesome.

The team was talking about a Last Alliance supplement years ago already, and there was that teaser when they mentioned Anárion in a special rule in the book LotR-era profiles.

Because of that, Last Alliance has been my expectation with every upcoming release so far. Maybe it will finally be correct this time?

Right behind you.

It's worth mentioning that they definitely have CAD stuff for Last Alliance era High Elves. The Rivendell Knights are the same design and were done CAD rather than traditional sculpting. Always felt strange that they did not just update the High Elves with The Hobbit.
