Popped into my local GW today during a teabreak and was chatting to the staff about war of the ring, as it was out on the table, as well as a board with a a sizeable amount of LOTR stuff on it.;)

Anyway, he told me that the store which sells the most copies of war of ring, or WotR releases on the release day, will be getting the Lurtz from WW for their store.

Just wandered if anyone else has heard this.

Looks like its true about what they say "taking things with a pinch of salt", but, in GW's case we pretty much already knew that ;)

When you guys say WW do you mean Weta or Warhammer world, and is it a new model of Lurtz?

Yeah, it's the lifesize model of Lurtz, not a new model.

Middlesborough is getting him but I haven't heard anything about this "Sales Prize" but as the book isn't out yet, there's a chance he could be moved on once the WOTR comes out.

Doubtful though as I can't see why they'd believe Middlesborough was the best place to promote WOTR lol.

What's wrong with MiddlesBROUGH? (note correct spelling :D) There are loads of gamers here currently building armies ready for the release.

Lurtz is a caste of the actor who played him, dressed in the clothes he worse and painted well cool!!
It stands at over 6ft tall and has been at lenton for ages. I have a pic somewhere of my lil bro when he was 11 stood next to this model. Awesome!

Boro is a fantastic place to promote WotR. Its the only store i've been to in the last couple of years that doesn't see the LotR players as lesser gamers.

Simple Economics says you put it where you'll garner the most attention, and whilst yes Boro is a nice enough store, it's not atall the largest, most successful or the busiest. That was all I meant. Geeze louise, next time I just won't let y'all know anything at all lol.

you lot got it, another boro lad here, lurtz is here

its a cast of the actor who is over 6ft and painted by the same artists who painted him in the film, and armour he wears is the same weta product that he wears in the film, and it has reminents of the durt from where it was recorded in new zealand on it, as when it was shipped to the UK they boxed it with some of the earth their, it stands proud in the boro store, even if a little scary, and we aint giving it back! lol
