This guide is absolutely fantastic. Thank you so much for both spending your time creating this and then sharing it. Personally I do not have any criticisms I think it is very well thought out, very well laid out and excellently illustrated.

If it was a paper document I could understand the wasted page criticism but as it is a pdf it is a simple case of scrolling. Also this document is clearly made to incorporate new releases so the 'wasted space' hopefully will soon be filled with new GW releases (fingers crossed)

Thank you very much for this.

Can anyone help me, this document shows 3 Galadriel sculpts, but I have not seen the last one on the list before. The model with her hand raised and the model where she delivers her epic speech I have seen and have but the last model is new to me.

Thanks for clearing that up, I was totally panicking. It's actually a decent sculpt much better than the raised hand sculpt

I can't wait, I have already discovered models I did not know existed until I read your guide so you have done me a massive favour.

bro, thanks for this. i made my own excel list of minis that i have. i was also starting on a wish list but this will save me heaps of time.

i think you missed adding the plastic fellowship of the ring models though



(there are some minis that i will not get, just because of bad design on GW's part. they started off with very good FOTR models and then the sculpt quality decreased. the plastic fellowship is pretty bad, for me. it's back to good quality minis now that the hobbit films are out)

The plastic fellowship are included in the extra models at the end of the guide, so they are in there just not listed with the other Fellowship models. Not sure why Miniman chose to keep them separate but I won't fault him, the guide is an excellent resource and I'm glad he has chosen to keep updating it for the Hobbit releases.

Thanks Miniman. :)

That's why the plastic Fellowship is at the end of the Guide. ;)

Love the guide Miniman, thanks

I agree with the couple of other people who said it would be great if there were some way to be able to tick the boxes on the computer so we don't have to print out 240 pages, would that be possible?

I would like to improve my guide with links in the toc, and with tickable boxes, but I don't know how to do it. I use Adobe InDesign and of course Adobe Acrobat. If anyone can help me with some tutorial or other things, I will try improve the guide.

Hyperlinks in the TOC done. ;)
Tickable boxes not yet. New InDesign and a lot of work needed. So...

Miniman, I have a friend who uses ID a bit, so let me know if you have troubles with something. I have used it a little, but not really enough.

Regarding the Theoden mounted model (straight horse leg), this was also available as "Mounted Theoden" originally and did not include a foot model.

I could have arranged the hyperlinks in the TOC, but could not managed the tickable boxes. I may need a new ID, and at first sight I have to change it one by one, which is a really big work.

I've corrected it. Thanks. It will apply in the next version.

Thanks :)

There were:
- a raider with bow,
- and a rider with spear,
- horse 1,
- and horse 2
and these were randomly packed. But I couldn't find pictures about all the variations. If you have any please send those to me. Thanks.

There is the same situation with the Easterling Kataphrakt Riders, but one of GW's Collector's Guide showed all the variations. Unfortunately I couldn't find similar pictures about the Haradrim Riders.

I could send a picture of the blister, but that probably doesn't help...

Thanks mate.

I think you have to do it all manually. We were having the same issue with the catalogue we were working on, and neither of us were aware of a way to make it happen other than doing it for everyone one to start with.
