Potential new Eomer model coming?

The old one is "no longer available" online, and I believe there will be some announcements/reveals at the GT at Warhammer World this evening.

So fingers crossed

I think plastic Eomer is a lock in at this point.

Models for profiles in WoR- Cerbain, resin add ons to the plastic ent kit for the new characters, and probably the title of the next expansion (Angmar? Last Alliance?)

Whilst the Keeper is a surprise, if it means FW resin instead of FC, and frees up a SKU slot with GW main, I guess it's low key a good thing.

Next MTO is apparently Rohan focussed.

That keeper of the dungeon is nice. Anyone know how big? I can't tell the base size.

Current version is on a 25mm base, can't imagine this one will be different

Fun fact, he's actually an unreleased Perry sculpt from 2012.

The Crebain getting a release is nice. Not something I would have expected them to take the time to do. Nice minis though. Wonder what sort of rules they'll get.

When did the Perry's leave GW? Did they sculpt any of the Hobbit range?

Sadly, GW stopped crediting their sculptors around this time, so while we know for near-enough every LotR-era set who sculpted it, that's not the case for those from the Hobbit onwards (though some of the most recent ones have been mentioned informally online). I vaguely remember it being said that the Perry twins probably did most of the plastics, but only some of the characters (resulting in some strange proportions on some of the latter). The only figure I know for sure is Smaug, which was Michael Perry's first digital sculpt, and his last sculpt for the range I believe.

Not quite news, but quite an interesting interview with Mr. Priestly about the creation of the game:

The Perry's did the Master, Alfrid, Bard on horse, Bolg etc from BotfA as the last minis (before Smaug, who was their last sculpt for GW)

New collection of MTO's and the compilation book coming up. Probably grab Theoden, Gamling and the battering ram this time. Not entirely sure why Haldir's elves have come around for a second time already. But i do enjoy a good compilation book, got the original three that i re-read quite often.

They're only done in metal. If you're interested in collecting at all, i'd recommend the Gamling, as that's an unreleased sculpt. And those metal ents are particularly rare as they had a very short release window.

Do we know if the Crebain bodies are molded onto the tree branches, or if they could be based on flight stands separately?

I have gaming uses for a bunch of single crows and two bonus dead trees, but not so much two crow-filled trees.

I don't think unbuilt pics are around yet. But i have to imagine the majority would be seperate and stick onto the branches. It would be a casting nightmare otherwise.

Had read about the Gamling (great to have him released finally!), but also Gimli and the mounted Legolas? Indeed, they say that this is "a selection of what you’ll be able to order.", so there will be even more figures?! Even if they are priced sensibly, this may become pretty expensive...

Thought they would be up this weekend though, but the wording implies it could be later?

It's Sororitas this weekend. So if they're previewing it now, next weekend perhaps? They usually throw in other Specialist Games stuff with them, so maybe it'll be mixed in with the Escher stuff from Necromunda.

They're usually pretty explicit about pre-orders for the coming weekend, so the fact we don't know for sure indicates to me that it'll be next week.

Just as well, too, sounds like I'll need to be putting aside a pretty sum

MTO's up next week. Looks like they added the old metal scout uruks, metal warg riders and the defenders of Helms Deep. Nothing overly exciting, but some good choice at least.

Right behind you.

Defenders of Helm's Deep is going to be a "must buy" for me. That Haldir is soooooooooooo superior to the generally available one.

I have them. The birds are all seperate from the trees except from 2 single ones and one set of three who have a bit of branch attached. These could easily be removed though.

The rest of the birds come in a combination of single, doubles and triples.

You could definitely put them on flight stands but they would be very fragile and they are so thin. If youre going to put them in a cabinet or in a magnetic case it would be fine. A foam case would probably cause some breakages

Uh oh. This is going to be expensive Made to Order. I don't even play Lotr but I want Heroes of Helms Deep, couple of metal Ents, Uruk-Hai, Warg Riders. At least.

That place is the harsh dark future far left with only war left.
