Lord of the Rings/Hobbit Games Workshop game news and rumors

There has been some news and rumors floating around about Games Workshop releasing a new version of the Lord of the Rings (LoTR) / The Hobbit.  There is a YouTube channel and a Facebook page that have been talking a lot about this.

The YouTube channel is Spillforeningen the Fellowship they have been releasing videos about this for awhile now, also you can get great news about this game by going to this Facebook page: Great British Hobbit League.

Here is what is rumored to happen:

  • Sourcebooks are being re-printed
    • New Sourcebook available in October
  • Out of production models will be bought back by Forge World
  • Adam Troke will be working on the new books for (at least) four years
  • Same overall rules but a new rulebook will be released with tweaked mechanics 
    • Name will change to Middle Earth Strategy Battle Game
  • Game might delve into the Lord of the Rings appendices for content in the future

I think this is great news as I love this franchise of games and love the movies.  Currently I have a Elves w/Legolas, and a whole hose of Goblins.

Really looking forward to this re-release and revamp of the game.
