The Battle of Pelennor Fields Boxed Game Officially Announced! Out August!!
At The Forge World and Specialist Games Open Day, the Middle Earth team have lifted the lid on The Battle of Pelennor Fields boxed game that we previously discussed here!
It’s been an incredible seventeen years since the first The Lord of the Rings™ Strategy Battle Game releases, and six since The Hobbit™ was added to the range. And now, there’s an entirely new edition coming, with a brand-new boxed game!
Middle-earth Strategy Battle Game: The Battle of Pelennor Fields is a new boxed game based on the climactic battle from The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King™. Inside it, you’ll find plastic models for two armies and a brand new edition of the game rules. The Middle-earth team are remaining tight-lipped on the details, but they’ve been hard at work on updating the game while keeping everything you love about the current edition.
The armies feature a whopping 84 Citadel miniatures – including a brand new version of Theoden, King of Rohan on foot and horseback. This model is the first in what will be a range of new plastic characters for the setting. The model is incredibly detailed – a faithful depiction of the king, during his glorious last charge.
Alongside Theoden ride 12 Riders and Warriors of Rohan and 20 Warriors of the Dead. Against them stand no fewer than 36 Morannon Orcs, a Mordor Troll and The Witch-king of Angmar atop a Fell Beast. Also included, are all the various gaming accessories you’d expect – dice, range-rulers (themed to each army), tokens, and most importantly of all – a brand new208-pagee edition of the rules.
Beyond the boxed game…
Alongside the boxed game will be a book called called Armies of Middle-earth. This tome will be your guide to the various forces of Good and Evil during the War of the Ring.
On top of that, there are plenty of new Forge World kits on the way to expand your Middle-earth armies, starting with some fabulous new models of Knights of Dol Amroth and some Gondorian and Orc Heroes.
The Battle of Pelennor Fields will be available in August.
We’ll be bringing you more information about this new edition soon – so keep an eye out.
