Hi all,

I play the LotR SBG, but not War of the Ring, but am interested in several of the new models that have been released since. I've heard that some of these characters have their SBG profiles printed in various White Dwarf issues. Could someone be so kind as to give me a rundown of which SBG profiles were printed in which issues?

The characters/figures I'm interested in are:
Haldir/Rumil
Elven Stormcaller
Galadhrim Knights
Amdur
The Golden King/Abrakhan Guard
Sons of Eorl
Dwarf Shieldbearer
Black Guard/Command
The Betrayer
Knight of Umbar
Kardush the Firecaller
Druzhag the Beastcaller

Thanks in advance, for any help!

What are the odds of them being republished in a book?

If they ever get around to producing a new Edition of the LotR SBG core rules (which god they really need to do) then I'd say a pretty good chance. Otherwise, slim to none.

I looked but didn't see them - not for the strategy game. If you have seen them please provide a link.

Currently, the rules for all the stuff released for the SBG since WotR isn't available in electronic form, despite the assurances of the Studio at the Open Day last February that they would be put up in good time. Annoying to say the least. However, with the LotR Grand Tournament in 8 days, I think the Events Team are trying to get them up after a number of requests for them.

Are there rules for High Elf knights anywhere? I picked up the Galadhrim box sets and did some minor conversions to make them High Elves....wondering if there's anything I can use the horsemen for?

Haradrim Taskmaster
That Easterling Guy in the command Box with Two Swords(is it dragon knight?)
The Easterling Warpriest

All of them in the December 2009 WD I think.

Is he not just the Witch King?

There are no SBG rules for the Dwimmerlaik.

But the Dwimmerlaik and the Witch King aren't the same in WotR?

"Dwimmerlaik" is just another name for the Witch King...

The Dwimmerlaik is a name given to another of the Nazgul by GW. "Dwimmerlaik" is actually a word from the Rohirrim language, possibly with equivalence in that language of the Shire and other areas of the Northern world (as demonstrated by the shared origins of Hobbit/Holbytla) meaning a form of spirit. We also see this used in a name given to the forest of Lorien by the Rohirrim, "Dwimordene", meaning forest of spirits.

And no, there aren't rules for him yet. =P

On a related note, rules for the new models released this month (Feb 2010) will appear in the next White Dwarf (March 2010), on sale on the 27th of Feb I think. But subscribers should get theirs next week, so do let us know what the rules are like. =)
