I wonder if it comes with the base of if it's just the statues and the stairs. Either way it's still a big ol' piece. And only a couple of weeks away.

I certainly hope it comes as one big piece. Correct spacing and all that are kind of.... integral I guess to the overall look and authenticity of it.

Very nice! But having already bought a FW Weathertop, I don't think I can justify replacing my homemade Amon Hen

To be honest, it would be kind of a rip if it was anything over £25. Those are all old, old models and there's really not much else to the box itself looking at it. I wouldn't be surprised if this was an available until sold out job.

Considering it's a board game branded specifically for the 20th anniversary of Fellowship of the Ring, that seems entirely likely.

USD $250 in 2019. My guess is USD $280 for 2021 release. Contains USD $398 "worth" of scenery. Unsure for £ prices tho

Ah, thanks Dave. I don't think the houses/palisades have ever gone up in price since release? I wonder if it will keep to £150 again this time?

I'd be VERY interested in that Balins Tomb game if it's not too pricey.

It seems to me like the ideal gateway to help get my girlfriend more into tabletop games. She wants to play them but struggles because she had no real frame of reference for what's going on or why (the background lore isn't interesting to her). She's seen and likes LotR enough to know the characters and the situation which will help keep her invested. If it's simple and engaging then all the better.

£45 for the Balin’s Tomb game.

£45 seems reasonable.

XE.com says £45 converts to 83AUD. The plastic fellowship alone costs 84AUD. So in that case, bargin!
However the UK GW has the Dark Talon, Haruspex and Cauldron of Blood at £45 (the first 3 things I found that cost £45). On the OZ GW, those same 3 items $81, $100 and $75 respectively. So now I have no bloody idea how much this game will cost!

If they run it at $75 or $81, it'll be an auto-buy for me. If it comes up at $100+ (which I think is more likely) then I may skip it unless I can pick it up from a 3rd party retailer.

Eh, i'm not usually one to moan about price, but that's a bit too much this time. For the age of the models and the contents of the box, i would have been happier at the £30 mark.

To be honest I was mildly excited about the new boxed game - assuming GW would sell it at a reasonable price. Silly me. Silly me indeed!

Quite frankly, this is absurd. The models included are 20 years old by now, and the Fellowship being sold for £30 alone is ridiculous enough (nine small monopose models, a single sprue, ).

Speaking in Euro monies: the pound price should translate to 60€ (possibly even 65€), the Fellowship alone is 40€. Both are bonkers. If GW had asked for 40€ or 45€ for the game I'd have checked for some store with a discount offer and got it. As it is? No way.

Hey man, if it's good for you then go for it. But i already have multiple versions of the fellowship and more goblins i care to admit too. And i'm not bothered about the troll. I just feel there's not enough there to justify it for me personally.

I'm wondering if anyone would get Balins Tomb for the models at this price, and jettison the game bits on eBay? Like many here, I have all these models from the earlier boxed set. Decent game for £10 or so would be pretty good.
