Signed! Maybe it would be an idea to promote this on other forums/website/social Media as well?

Yeah, I wrote to a facebook page of our local GW store and to http://www.lotr-collector.co.uk also on facebook, no response for now. If you have any ideas how to promote it, feel free to make it :) Someone was even faster than me on the last alliance and made a topic, but guys from there are not so optimistic 'bout that and gave some reasons why it's not possible to reissue BGiME. But thanks for initiative :)

EDIT: 50 votes already :) Thanks :)

Yes, I've already posted it on TLA, but, as I mentioned in a post above, guys from there are not so enthusiastic... Nevertheless, I've just received a facebook message from LOTR-collector, which said, that my petition is gonna be on their site over the weekend :) So I thonk it's a huge step further on the way to promote it. And thanks to all of you for support here :)

Haha, nice one! But you made a mistake with the price, I fear it might be more like £ 16.50 ^^

True, but it would be great to see the mag in the same old format but for The Hobbit with rules explanations, scenarios, painting guides and modelling projects, everything that's lacking from the pages of White Dwarf right now... Wouldn't even need to include a miniature.. Anyways..

I would love to see this happen as I got all of the BGiME and still refer back to them for terrain ideas and painting tips (whilst my WD from the same time sit on the shelf in prestine unused condition), but I just can't see it happening. I really hope I am wrong on this. THe prices back then, even though we used to complain about them being too high, were compared to today much lower meaning it was affordable to do so, with Todays prices I am not so sure.

I can remember ordering loads on one issue every so often (such as the warg one) as it was cheaper to get the models that way than buy from GW.

Fingers crossed this will happen and I will sign.
