It feels like there has been a bit of lull in MESBG and the wargaming blogosphere that I follow/participate in lately so some news from GW is certainly welcome! Rohan At War is rumored to come out next month which will be exciting but to wet our appetites, Forge World has put some new models up for pre-order! If you’re a big fan of the movies, you’ll probably remember these characters as well since they make an impact in the Battle of Helm’s Deep.
I like how GW is creating new sculpts to represent memorable side characters in the movie. These two sculpts look fairly simple/straight forward to paint (get your brown paint ready!) but the likenesses are awesome to the actors in the movie and should be a welcome addition to Rohan armies. If I ever get around to Two Towers scenarios, I will definitely pick them up.
That is not at all! A slew of Hobbit minis are also returning including some that are really hard to get like Thranduil. If you play any of the Hobbit armies (or scenarios like me), this is pretty exciting news! Here is a look at everything that is returning:
While I’m happy to see all of these return, I have been waiting to be able to buy Fimbul to play An Unexpected Journey scenarios for quite some time so I’m thrilled to see him back. I’d love to take a crack at a Thranduil one day as well. All of these minis should make any Hobbit fan happy and they all look like great fun to paint up too!
Do any of these new and returning minis get you excited? Which ones, if any, will you buy be buying in the near future? Let us know in the comments below!
