Not sure how new this release is. But still, I shall stray from my tradition of not speak of the honking elephant in the room that is Games Wokshop: They have released some expensive resin models which looks very nice, like most things from Forgeworld (I also have heard that they have good quliaty control as well).
I will obviously not buy anything of this, despite being a huge fan. In case you care, here are my reasons:
1) Too expensive.
2) Don't want to support.
3) I would like to sculpt crappier versions myself.
Reasons why this was not unexpected:
1) Games Workshop had an employment-ad on their webpage, looking for someone doing LotR-stuff for Forgeworld.
Reasons to buy this:
1) You have more money than I do.
2) The models look very nice.
3) You "support" Lord of Rings-merchandise, which may generate more stuff if it is making money.
That is that. Also, I did an update about a boat just before this update. Check it out and leave a comment.
