    So, what's next for LOTR SBG?

    So, what's next for LOTR SBG?

    Obviously there is the summer campaign.

    But then what?

    With the news that GW will be releasing more film based blisters (such as mounted Isildur and armoured Celeborn) I am expecting a consolidated LOTR SBG rulebook.

    But the next supplement?

    I have a feeling that it will cover the Last Alliance and possibly the war between the Elves and Sauron following the making of the Rings of Power.

    I heard that after the big rule book is released we will be seeing "Shadow of the East' which will include plastic Easterlings

    True. You have the "Shadows of the East", then the new core set "Mines of Moria", and then "Mirkwood".

    Ahh yes, I forgot the Mines of Moria based box set that someone helpfully posted pics of on the 'old' Portent.

    Re: So, what's next for LOTR SBG?

    Mines of Moria is the new 'Starter' box set. Containing all the basic rules. The FOTR, TT and ROTK rulebooks will become (or be republished as) something like Armybooks, but with all the characters and stuff in there.

    Mirkwood will also be another 'Starter' box, possibly more generic, without a Fellowship in it. A couple or other supplements will follow, like the aforementioned Easterlings. There's talk of a 'Necromancer' supplement, but that could be Mirkwood too.

    According to what I was told at the Seminars at GD Atlanta, It will follow the same release schedule as 40K did last year.

    Hard cover rule book - September
    Starter game - October

    hi guys.

    I have read a lot of "mixed" things here. but as we used to said: "a image is better than a 1000 words" .

    Following the Atlanta GD seminar, as Major Thom has said:

    I'd love to see plastic spiders (and I don't even play LOTR), but I guess they would have said 'plastic' if this was going to be the case. Even metal ones could be very cool, potentially.

    So this years 'big one' will be LOTR. I presume that 2006 will then see the new WHFB and the rumoured WHFB version of BGinME.

    I know isn´t the right forum but Brandir .... rumoured WHFB version of BGinME??

    And had not semi-confirmed that the next suplement would be TLA? Maybe was delayed?

    Re: So, what's next for LOTR SBG?

    The Last Alliance supplement was only a rumour; I have never heard even 'semi' comfirmation of such a book. However, it is a sensible assessment to make - a Last Alliance based supplement would be very popular and relatively easy for even GW staff members to write without compoletely ruining Tolkien's work.

    On the otherfront, following the incredible success of BGinME GW investigated the possibility of doing a similar thing to WH40K and/or WHFB, To the extent that about 4 months ago they advertised in WD for someone to coordinate the magazine. But please remember that many GW projects don't actually get published despite the work that staff members put into it. I am guessing that the part work will be WHFB as this would fit into the next release of this game. However, WH40K as a part work would also be good as I think it would be more popular than fantasy and easier to do.

    I'd expect 40k to get the BGiME treatment first as it's just had a new edition and it'd be a doddle to do Space Marines and some enemies for 50 issues. It'd sell. Fantasy I would expect after it gets a new edition in a year or two.

    It will be a 40k version of BGME for the next partwork if it is released.

    Re: So, what's next for LOTR SBG?

    Thanks Brandir. I had believed to hear some things about a possible suplement (but yes, only rumors) of TLA in one of the Gw´s seminars or in a chat with Alessio, Mat and Adam, but I don´t remenber where

    And the possible BGoME for WF or 40k.. don´t know in other countries, but here in Spain, 4 or 5 years ago (don´t remenber exactly ) we had one colectible of warhammer, with the 5th edition minis and rules, so this idea is not a surprise for us . But always is welcome

    This item is out os stock, but you can see how was it here (in spanish): http://www.altaya.es/ficha.php?id=65
