Is the Lord of the Rings miniature line really out of print? I just asked my FLGS about ordering some stuff through them, and they said that, and I quote: "LotR is out of print, so no longer available through GW," and that the Hobbit minis are what's being produced.
I've been perusing the forums here and (*checks GW's website one more time*) shopping around for models. I am kind of hoping to get into the Lord of the Rings miniatures game sometime this year (budget pending) as it is something that the wife is much more interested in and it isn't dominated by WAAC/Powergamers/Meta-chasers in my area. However, I would rather play a game that is not completely legacy with both its models AND rules support. I noticed other threads in News & Rumors that GW is starting to support it again, particularly Forge World, and rebranding it as the "Middle-Earth Strategy Battle Game".
While I am unable to find new models anywhere except GW's website, I don't see any indication that any LotR miniatures are "Last Chance to Buy" models, just webstore exclusives. Am I missing something? Or is my FLGS mistaken?
