    While Games-Workshop may not release any more figures, you can get pretty much everything you need to play Helm's Deep or Pelennor Fields from Copplestone (http://www.copplestonecastings.co.uk....php?range=FAN). They're 10mm figs and clearly LOTR inspired.

    Re: Thoughts on the Battle of Five Armies

    my schoolmates and I played the game (I think there was near 10 of us) we had a blast with the game. It ended almost in a draw (I was 2 models off from winning!)

    The rules are simple and quick but enough depth to make interesting tactics and strategies. The fault lies in GW or SG not making anything else for it, but as Tiberius Frost points out Copplestone has made other models. With quick rules you can make up on your own with your buddies this system can make whole campaigns.

    I really hope when The Hobbit comes out this gets more attention.

    I guess it (Bot5A) hasn't stood up to the test of time but the good part is the models can cross over to play in regular Warmaster.

    It is a shame that bot5a didnt make and i can kinda see why with both warmaster and warmaster ancients on the go (well ancients is gone now along with all of the rest of the historical stuff) i like the warmaster ruleset and the fact i could be used as a basis for the games it has done is good, but as it isnt one of the main lines (wfb,40k and lotr) it didnt get the support it deserved.

    Copplestone do some great lotr warmaster scale units and characters which look great.

    I can not start posts so i cant ask this anywhere else... annoying by the way moderator, can you fix that? or do i need to do something..

    anyway the question.. is there any place where we can find rules and army lists for later battles. obviously this scale lends itself to the epic sized battles of LOTR far better than prohibitively expensive 28mm figs. So there must be either a set of rules that will allow me to make other armies, or someone has to have done this already.. can anyone point me to either
