Great day yesterday, key points -

New Generals pack with markers and army lists sheets (to plan your own list) out in next 2 months
Pictures below of new releases
Nazgul in planning stage, not sure of they will be static or jumping atround like in the film
Dwarf Heros for the Chariot will be released, maybe in a upgrade pack, but the chariot is different as it has a cow catcher on the front
Updated rules summer 2018, see the picture below
Battle Companies with 80 pages, not 64 coming soon
GW very pleased how Middle earth is selling, its a long licence which will be renewed.
"there and back again" sells are very high, on its third reprint
No more plastics, only forge world resin
Gwaihir was sculpted a few years ago by Aly Morrison, who upgraded the base this year. they have more sculpts stashed away!
The Dwarf cross bow men are nicknamed "boar-listas" as the cross bow has a boars head at the front!

The future looks great, brilliant day chatting to the rule writer and the guys sculpting the minis

Thanks for the brilliant news!
As always, I'm jumping up and down in joy and my wallet has hidden somewhere in the meantime.
It's great that they'll continue to back the system up.

Thanks for the info Harfoot.

I am frustrated with the direction this project goes. They are stopping plastics while most of people are complaining about prices and 12-man plastic sprues. I am curious why this is going so well. Maybe this support your hobby propaganda. Nevermind...

What I actually wonna ask is that in the photo with the general's package(not included in this post) there is a scenario #12 "storm the camp" if I am not mistaken. Did they say if we are going to have 12 scenarios for the standard tournaments soon? Many other games use 12 and not 6 after some editions that's why I am saying that.

Forgot to mention, in the updated rule book summer next year, Rohan will be made more powerful in line with how Tolkien depicted them. Good news

Thanks a lot for the info Harfoot! Excellent news from the Mark, especially the upcoming lake-town releases (although bard's family looks a lot more terrified than I remembered from the films :-D )
