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.

It is quite a challenge for the Fellowship to make it unscathed throughout the whole dark passageways of Moria.

  • 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.
