Also included is a 48 Page full colour 'Your Journey Begins Here' booklet, 1 Play Sheet, a 112 page full colour rules manual, 8 Dice, and 1 Ruler. 

Is this a game that the club might be playing?


  1. I suspect it uses the same rules as the current LotR game, maybe with an update... I like LotR and will probably be getting this, would like to see it being played more.

  2. If it uses the current LOTR rules then probably not. The rules were ok, but nothing on Games Workshops other systems from when LOTR was first released (probably because of the ease to sell a wargame to people more interested in the LOTR licence than wargaming).

    However, as with most GW products, definetely worth getting because of the miniatures (And because i've never owned a Mini of a Barrie Humphreys or Sylvester McCoy!)
