Ain't that the frigging truth. Luckily I stashed a little extra away last pay check. Hopefully it will be enough to cover what I want. (doubting it though)

I’m rather tempted by the Warg Riders and metal Uruk Scouts too.

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 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


Hmmm. Sounds like Crooked Dice's metals would suit my needs better, then. Thanks for the info!

I mean, strictly speaking they could have kept that one open due to taking around 2 months to ship. But i guess it would mean messing with the site to change the other items for saturday. But annoying timing really.

Let's pop this lil guy in here. And lets be honest, he was by far the best model in the whole preview. (although the scions of the flame are a close second)

Tied with scions of the flame as the best reveal today, for me. I'll be buying just for the modeling and painting time, he's a fantastic sculpt!

(I did secretly hope the silhouette of him were updated harauder horsemen for AoS but I'm not disappointed given the quality displayed here, bring 'im on!)

Foot marauders need doing long before the marauder horsemen.

It would be very tempting to give him the helmet and put it under his arm.

I think he needs a third helmet, to be carried in his weapon arm...

Eomer is a fine looking model. Easily better then both Theoden and Eowyn. Nice to see the option of head variations.

I read this and thought you mean so he was carrying both his helmet and shield. Which would be a fantastic look.
But i'm guessing you meant so he was carrying two helmets. Which would also be a fantastic look!

Yep, a must-buy. Phenomenal model that goes really well with the contents of the new starter set.

Really, it's a great time to be a LoTR player!

Specially a Rohan one! I'm really excited for when the turn for other factions comes! I'll patiently wait as a Easterling/Mordor player! (And this is not sarcasm, after so many years just having attention even if in the form of token characters and books with new rules is enough)

Can't see it personally. They've done all the major Rohan heroes now and FW have added a bunch more. Surely its time for something else!?

That said, a sculpted banner for him would be ideal. What a nightmare it is.

Specially things like Rohan and Uruk Hai infantry. And normal dwarven infantry, they are some of the older boxes and it shows. Things like Morannon, Easterlings, etc... still look ace.

Well GW has yet to do any new troop boxes after relaunch. I wouldn't hold breath waiting for redo's of basic troops.

Plastic Easterling infantry is actually older than the Dwarves, and the latter are basically from the same period of time as the Morannons. The Dwarves are just part of a series of plastic sets (alongside plastic Wood Elves, Uruk-hai scouts and Corsairs) that somehow lack deeper, finer details that were present on earlier sets, or the sharpness of later kits. Although the Easterling infantry still looks good, the plastic cavalry released 6 years later has much better defined armour, more detail on the swords, etc. Meanwhile, the very first sets (Last Alliance and Goblins) have excellent fine detail on chainmail and faces (but obviously suffer from monotonous poses). No idea what changed in the production process in between.

Not sure if we can expect redone plastics any time soon when there are still quite a few metal and finecast sets in the range that need replacing (which appears more of a priority). One of the most requested candidates would be the Last Alliance set however, and as it happens that would get two birds with one stone as they could also phase out the metal Númenórean archers/spearmen and finecast High Elves with spears. Or they may only do the latter on a shared sprue again, but that would feel like a missed opportunity.

Eomer looks awesome and reminds me a lot of Elfhelm.

But the helm under the arm looks strange. Why is there a bar in there in the lower half, for stabilization ? I hope we can get rid of it, without destroying the helm.
