    Games Workshop Lord of the Rings Release Timeline

    This is a list I’ve compiled (with help) of Games Workshop’s releases over the years, split by game system. I stress this is a work in progress; it is far from complete or comprehensive. It’s based on a mix of info from these forums, fellow forumites help and my White Dwarf collection.

    I'm sure there will be errors: things mis-categorised as plastic/metal kits, models in the wrong month, and some just plain missing. If you can help out with further info to improve this it would be greatly appreciated

    Some guidelines for inclusion:
    • Magazines, books, terrain, tools, paints and so on aren’t included: this is focused on models alone.
    • Battle Forces and other boxed sets of armies generally don’t get included.
    • Also no kits that are just combinations of other kits (e.g. 13th Company Storm Claws).
    • I include it in brackets when a number of variants of one basic thing are done, e.g. if three goblin bosses are released it’s “Goblin Bosses (3)” rather than one entry for each. This usually only applies to leaders with different armaments and so on.
    • I don’t include models released in starter sets except where they differ from existing models significantly. So the Island of Blood models count, but the Battle for Macragge ones don’t.


    Despite these issues I hope it might be an interesting or helpful resource for others. Many thanks to Tarax, Tae, Scryer in the Darkness, mrtn, gunmonkey, Ghudra, someone2040, Daniel36, coyote1066, Coach, MarcoSkoll, AsleepByDay, ADF and imcdonnell for all their help.

    Red = Metal/Resin
    Blue = Plastic

    Note on *: I would like one day to give this a site of it's own, and as part of that I was to add images of models for easy identification. At the moment that project is firmly on hold for various reasons, but I'm still collecting images here and there. The asterisks mean I have an image for that thing.

    When did GW release something? Was it plastic or metal? Who sculpted it? Come find out:Fantasy, 40K, LOTR, BFG, Blood Bowl, Epic, Inquisitor, Man O' War, Mordheim, Necromunda & Warmaster

    Re: Games Workshop Lord of the Rings Release Timeline

    Thanks for the resource. I appreciate all the work that must have gone into this.

    I know there has been at least one LotRs release already in 2010, but I don't remember what all it included. Some Dunlendings, Mauhur command, other Rohan and Isengard stuff I think.

    You may as well include the stuff being released in 2 weeks as well.

    There was the repackaging of Wargs w/o riders somewhere in there too.
    Yeah I don't think Tymell's doing repackages as such, just the new release models.
    Void... blissful void. :skull:

    Thanks for the further releases, Scryer And yeah, I'm not covering repackages (to my knowledge anyway, there's always the possibility I've missed some somewhere in these lists without knowing it).
    When did GW release something? Was it plastic or metal? Who sculpted it? Come find out:Fantasy, 40K, LOTR, BFG, Blood Bowl, Epic, Inquisitor, Man O' War, Mordheim, Necromunda & Warmaster

    Please, could you post the book releases as you did in your WHF and 40K posts?

    I'm really impressed of your work. Thank you very much!

    Thanks ^^

    I certainly can! Book releases now added, though as with the models, it's all a bit sketchy after 2006 when my White Dwarf collection ends. I think most of the models/kits I'm missing are from that period.

    I'll also try to add the plastic/metal colours too sometime.

    Yes, and while we are thankful for the information you have given us, it is like a small cracker to a starving man.

    Nor did I until I put this together, and yet most of the entire LOTR range is their work.

    Yeah, unless you count the recent price increases as "attention" (or I just missed something). I'm looking forward to something more substantial.

    Just looked through the list and noticed that the February 2012 releases show some outdated names - I believe those were leaked names from e.g. a Spanish source, translated to English, rather than the actual English names. Given the correct ones below. Also, although GW may not credit their sculptors anymore, Smaug was sculpted by Michael Perry (the last thing he did for GW, incidentally also his first digital sculpt. What a guy!). (Source: the Perry twins Facebook page).

    Horror From the Deep (MP) >> Dweller in the Dark
    Great Gorgoth Beast >> Great Beast of Gorgoroth
    The Guardian in the Lake >> The Watcher in the Water
    Warg-Lootriders (MP) >> Warg Marauder

    \m/ Metalhead of Warseer \m/

    Oh man - now just to find the keys to my Dalorian and drive it at 88mph to go back to the future so I could have bought all the minis I wanted before they went away!

    (looking at you Fiefdoms!)

    Thanks for the amazing work & effort into making this list

    I've been trying to fill the holes in my own collection this year, and even in the last six months I've seen a noticeable drop in the availability of many of the less common miniatures in the third party market (I'm looking at you, Floi Stonehand!)
