  • LORD OF THE RINGS

    Lord of the Rings has two games published by Games Workshop. The Strategy Battle Game is a skirmish game. The heroes have an important role to play in the game and creates a wonderful storyline.

    The other, more recently published, is for larger battles. It is known as War of the Ring (WOTR). It uses units that are based in trays. It is perfect for playing the large battles from the Tolkien books.

    • War of the Ring

      090414wotr05bWar of the Ring is a new rule set from Games Workshop which allows you to fight the epic battles from the Lord of the Rings. Released in April 2009, this complements the popular skirmish rule set and allows players to show off their huge collection of figures in spectacular battles.

      This rule set is totally new, not just a variation of Warhammer Fantasy Battles. It is easy to learn, but is not simplistic and has many subtleties. It allows cavalry to act like cavalry and happily includes all the character stats in the one book. So no supplements to buy.

    • Role Playing Games - General

      Role playing games allow players to take the role of characters. Under the guidance of a games master, the players must use their imagination to develop their characters and undergo adventures.

      The games are often in a medieval fantasy setting. Fighters, clerics, wizards and thieves are some of the common characters. But any setting (real or imaginary) or period can be played.
