Just like Space Hulk, they decided to remove them for some unknown reason.

History[ edit ] Back in you may feel old now , the famous kiwi director Peter Jackson who you might remember from his cult hit Braindead or Dead Alive, depending on where you live , a flick that greatly pleased Khorne for being one of the bloodiest movies of all time did what was thought for decades to be impossible: to turn J. Tolkien 's The Lord of the Rings books into movies. GW, having a keen nose for when someone makes more money than they do, approached New Line Cinema film studio behind the movies , Italian publisher Deagostini famous for publishing collector's items and DIY kits, subscription-based and once piece at a time over the span of years , and Tolkien's heirs in one of the biggest crack-conspiracies this side of Snowflame : make that shit into a tabletop strategy game. So back in the day of 3rd edition and 6th edition , the Lord of the Rings Strategy Battle Game took the world by force. What's surprising is that there's a lot of plastic to go around, and you used to get a shit ton of dudes models compared to 40k's per basic troop choice in the boxed set. This has since been cut down to per box, and 6 models per infantry box. Yes, there's quite some metal and finecast to go around, but it's surprisingly cheap to make yourself a LotRSBG army. With the Hobbit movies dragging everyone's fat asses to the cinemas this game looks like it's making a comeback, oddly renamed to "The Hobbit" as a movie tie-in instead of "Middle-Earth" or something more appropriate for a wargame set in several ages of Middle-earth. Unsurprisingly, they fucked it up. Fucktarded pricing, a lack of advertising and the fact that the company seemed to despise it, killed it.

Normally the role of the king's personal protector is offered to a member of the Khazad Guard, but Mardin, a veteran Vault Warden, has proven his level head and strong arm in many a battle and there is no more dependable companion to be found. Murin and Drar are two exceptions to this rule, having travelled far and wide beyond their home in the Iron Hills.

Lord of the Rings - Rulebook - 2005 - Eng

Feared mightily and rightly so by his goblin subjects. While not the cleverest of Goblins, he is as fiercely territorial as the rest and reacts to his realm's invasion by raising a powerful army to oppose Balin and his Dwarves. Buhrdur is a creature of pure evil, spawned in the darkest caves of the Misty Mountains. Possessing cunning over and above that encountered in others of his Trollish kind, Buhrdur has gathered to him all manner of fell creatures.

This may or may not be an interpretation of the same character. Keiseimu, Ravager of Ithilien — The Khandish named hero. So far, all that is known about him is his name and the fact that he can be given a chariot to ride to battle.

He may need to use a King profile with a Might, Will, and Fate of 3, 1, and 1; and a Courage of 4 in the Skirmish game. Since then the name of the Serpent Lord has once more become a famous one throughout Harad, and his own legend grows with each victory. Tolkien left him unnamed; his name and title are invented by Games Workshop although his name is likely an altered form of Saladin; the Muslim leader during the Third Crusade.

To question or contradict the will of a Hasharin leads to death, whether by public execution or through the quiet application of their murderous skills.

On the battlefield, the Hasharii act as assassins, seeking out enemy leaders and slaying them with poisoned blades. Dalamyr, Fleetmaster of Umbar — A notorious figure in the land of Harad, Dalamyr has been one of the foremost fleetmasters for many long years. How he came to survive the terrible wars against Morgoth will never be known, yet survive he did, sleeping through countless centuries.

He prospered, and learnt how to bend to his will all manner of dark beasts. When Sauron offered him one of the Nine Rings, the promise of its power proved irresistible. Now, his physical being all but gone, and his will enslaved to Sauron, the Shadow Lord wears his dark pride like a cloak, blotting the sun from the sky and dimming the sight of his foes. The Shadow Lord is a name applied to one of the nine Ringwraiths , representing the aspect of their dimming, shadowy influence on their environment.

In-game, The Shadow Lord shrouds his allies in darkness, making it more difficult to fight against them. The Dark Marshal — In the centuries since the Dark Marshal and his fellow kings became Ringwraiths, he has become even more sadistic and malicious. Where the Dark Marshal passes, Evil creatures fight harder, fearful of their lives whilst Good warriors feel the icy touch of death upon their hearts.

The Dark Marshall represents another one of the unnamed Ringwraiths , embodying their more martial side, pun not intended, and brings it to bear that Sauron's soldiers fear his commanders far more than the enemy they fight.

Middle-earth SBG - Armies of the Lord of the Rings

The Undying — The Undying has endured long where others have fallen. He is said to be the oldest of the Ringwraiths, and the last to succumb to the wasting influences of the Rings of Power.

Through an obsessive mastery of evil magics, the Undying has learnt to draw sustenance from the magics of others, fortifying himself with the magical energy that flows around him. His model is unique, in that he carries a staff and not a sword.

Now all natural things rebel in his presence, vegetation withers, animals sicken and bold warriors cower. He is an abomination whose merest presence is poison to life, honour and hope.

His mounted model is built to look as though his horse were sickened and dying by merely being near him. The Betrayer is another addition to the nine Ringwraiths by Games Workshop, depicted wearing Haradrim armor and a turban around his hood, although his weapon is a western longsword , instead of a Southron's weapon.

The Golden King of Harad — A figure depicted being carried on a litter and wearing a golden mask and turban. Likely added into the game to give another edge to the Haradrim. Not only are the warriors of the Black Guard much stronger than ordinary orcs, they are led by Captains whose loyalty to Sauron renders them almost insensate to fear. These troops are considered a Games-Workshop creation. Thrydan Wolfsbane — Thrydan Wolfsbane is the first true warchief of Dunland in centuries.

The same is true for pieces from other manufacturers. The first three editions of the rule-books were released with the Lord of the Rings films , but Games Workshop used White Dwarf and various Supplements as an outlet for characters that were in the book but not the film. The current edition, the "One Rulebook to Rule them All", contains the entire set of rules updated and presented in a single large volume, including those of previous supplements. The three older editions are to be re-released in updated supplements.

Currently, the official editions of Rulebooks and Supplements include:. In February , Games Workshop released a new set of Sourcebooks along with several new miniatures in order to replace some of the older Sourcebooks for the game, they lacked the painting and modeling sections presented in the older books and introduced new units.

The Khandish Mercenary list and individual themed lists Minas Morgul, Cirith, Morranon where effectively re-worked or removed completely from the books.

This release appears to be an attempt to re attract players before the release of the Hobbit film. For materials done under the previous iteration of the rules, there exist errata and FAQ files, to ensure potential rules conflicts between editions are resolved universally. A Last Alliance High Elf miniature. There are two types of troops: Warriors and Heroes.

Heroes have characteristics which set them apart from the Warriors they lead, and can be named or unnamed characters: Aragorn, Frodo, Captains, etc.

Warriors are the core of the army: Each army must be either Good or Evil, and can only include miniatures from that side each model is named in the rules as being either Good or Evil. Armies include:. The games uses a points system similar to Warhammer Fantasy , which itself has many similarities with Tolkien's works.

It is primarily a skirmish game, but can be played in varying scale:. One of the key differences between the game and Warhammer, however, is that in Lord of the Rings, the players take turns playing out one phase at a time, but in both forms of Warhammer, each player plays their full turn before the other player has their turn.

However, LOTR SBG is impractical for large games, especially since combats are fought model-to-model rather than unit-to-unit, however in Warhamer fantasy where movement trays make moving hundreds of models easier and Warhammer 40k in which the Apocalypse expansion makes huge games practical , large games are encouraged. This Difference was eliminated however when the War of the Ring was introduced as a separate game style in which movement trays are used to carry out larger battle scenarios.

Dol Guldur Evil — Dol Guldur armies form Sauron 's troops from the time that he was hiding in Southern Mirkwood , and went under the name of the "Necromancer". There are two general themes by which players usually construct their armies. The first, and perhaps most obvious, is based around the fortress garrison of Dol Guldur, containing Sauron himself as the Necromancer, backed up by Castellans of Dol Guldur, and usually Orcs and the occasional Troll. The other way is actually more of a general evil army of Mirkwood, containing Giant Spiders led by the "Spider Queen".

Both armies can include swarms of Giant Bats , and can be allied. Other themes include Spiders allied with wild Wargs to form an army of wild creatures, or allied with Moria to represent a force from the Mountains of Mirkwood.

Their biggest enemy are the Elves - the Taurdirim and the Galadhrim. Harad offers warriors and light cavalry that are inexpensive to field, and have poison arrows increasing their effectiveness against armoured warriors. Their invented heroes include Suladan and the hasharin. Until recently Corsairs were unavailable, and only existed as player-made conversions. However, with the release of the Harad sourcebook, Games Workshop released some new Corsair miniatures; including metal Arbalesters and a new character: Dalamyr, Fleetmaster of Umbar.

Easterlings Evil — In previous forms of the rules, the Easterlings were pitifully weak, offering only three warrior types cast in metal, and not even appearing until the third edition of the rules. However, their range has been increased enormously with the release of A Shadow in the East.

Games Workshop's Easterlings represent the Balchoth , and have been based on a combination of imagery from the New Line films and history of the Sassanid Empire. They offer the unique phalanx the first army to have pikes since Isengard , and are the only Evil army to feature heavy cavalry , referred to as " kataphracts ". They frequently ally with Khand or Mordor.

Dragon Knights and Dragon Guards may not be the same troops.

He and the Dragon Knights have a melee skill of 7, which is an indicator that Games-Workshop's Easterlings are based on both the Achaemenid and Sassanid Persians, whereas Tolkien's seem to be based on mostly the Achaemenid and Parthian ones hence the "bowmen upon horses".

They are not given the Chariots they had in the books, but they can be given chariots by putting an Easterling footman miniature into a Persian War Chariot miniature from another company, and use the Khandish Chariot rules. Khand Evil — Tolkien wrote even less about Khand than he did about Harad, though we know that the only thing implied about them is that the armor they wore covered - literally - their entire bodies "Variags who hated the sun" , and that their weapons may be their own design of Haradrim and Easterling weapons.

Games Workshop has based their Variags of Khand on the Mongols and the Japanese , featuring sashimonos and the unique chariots, despite the Easterlings being the only culture in Middle-earth with chariots in Tolkien's writings. It was suggested that the Gondorians were unaware of the lands further east, and thus the names of the Variags and Wainriders had been mixed-up.

Monsters of Middle-earth Evil — This applies to individual models that do not fit into other armies; in this case, the five creatures that each "represents a fantasy archetype - stone giant, dragon, cave drake and fire demon the Balrog. Some are heavily criticized, such as the Isengard Troll, [54] having been described as "not thematically correct"; [60] whilst others have been popular additions.

Mardin — Mardin is King Durin's life ward.

Murin and Drar are two exceptions to this rule, having travelled far and wide beyond their home in the Iron Hills. Feared mightily and rightly so by his goblin subjects.

While not the cleverest of Goblins, he is as fiercely territorial as the rest and reacts to his realm's invasion by raising a powerful army to oppose Balin and his Dwarves.

In The Rise of the Witch-king by EA Games, a similar character named Rogash appears; this may or may not be an interpretation of the same character. Keiseimu, Ravager of Ithilien — The Khandish named hero. So far, all that is known about him is his name and the fact that he can be given a chariot to ride to battle.

He may need to use a King profile with a Might, Will, and Fate of 3, 1, and 1; and a Courage of 4 in the Skirmish game. Since then the name of the Serpent Lord has once more become a famous one throughout Harad, and his own legend grows with each victory.
