    Will you play war of the ring?

    Who here thinks they will play WoTR I think it looks cool and will give it a go but what does the general population say?

    Daemonic cheese-how? Well, you would need to start with daemonic milk, i guess...

    Yes, I enjoy LotR and have heard rave review from most of the staff I have talked to about it. It appears to suit the way I play, and seems to suit a more flexible playstyle, which I have.

    I'm not a LotR player but I got a chance to look at the WotR rule book today. It looks really good, full colour and nicely put together. Stand alone rulebook too, apparently and the LotR system is meant to be very good anyway.
    No more NG spearmen, thanks! Now I need some pump-wagons!

    Probably better off in the LotR forum, but my thoughts are that even if I still played LotR, I wouldn't bother with this. I always preferred games when they were no bigger than 500 points. As it was designed to be a skirmish game, that's how it should be run.

    But then again, I suspect I'm taking too much of a traditional attitude to something which I don't even play anymore.

    Well this is actually a completely different game, just with the same models. So you can play both games but this thread is about WoTR not LOTR SBG

    Nope, i don't have the models, just a few of the ones that came with the LotR magazine in ages past. And those are lost in the warp

    Short answer no, I'm a huge tolkien fan but am so tired of people over doing LoTR. But as soon as they release a war of the jewels or, I wish, a silmarillion based table top game I'm in!

    Probably not for two reasons, itís losing what makes the current LOTR a decent game (probably the best system GW run) and turning it into, basically, a version of WFB.

    Second I play Grey Company and Iím planning on Isengard Raiders, neither army is really suited to War of the Ring.

    Grey Company not suited to WOTR? Bows sound even dirtier than ever now, and they have LOTS! I've only recently started dabbling in LoTR and have some wood elves, some rangers and some dwarves and it looks like its gonna be a very powerful combo.

    I suppose it could work if you used allies, but I don't, and I think Rangers on those stack bases.....well it just isn't Rangers really. Whilst the numbers you would need would probably also be un-Rangerish, they are really a small skirmish army designed for ambush, not large scale battles.
