It Still Only Counts As One! Forge World’s Big LotR Mumak Upgrades

April 16, 2018 by brennon

Forge World has added another big kit to their webstore for fans of The Lord of the Rings & The Hobbit. Here we have their Mûmak War Leader

War Mûmak of Harad Kit - Forge World

Many of you will remember the amazing epic clash upon the Pelennor Fields in Return Of The King. Well, this set allows you to upgrade one of the plastic Mûmak kits from Games Workshop with some additional resin accessories to make it into a War Leader.

The fellow at the lead of this attack has also been created for you to add to your collection. Obviously, this is before he met an untimely end at the tip of Éomer’s spear.

Mûmak War Leader #1 - Forge World

The kit has sold exceptionally well and is already temporarily out of stock. Make sure to keep checking back to see if they come up in their store as I have a feeling they are going to keep flying off the digital shelves.

Mûmak War Leader #2 - Forge World

“The resin Mûmak War Leader upgrade set consists of thirty components which replace their equivalent parts on the Mûmak, including two replacement tusks, thirteen spikes which attach to the tusks, a replacement trunk, and two ears. These ears are pierced through with ropes, which the War Leader – who replaces the Mûmak Champion – uses to guide the Royal Mûmak.”

This is a neat kit and has had some people speculating as to what might come up if Games Workshop ever looks to do a new Starter Set for Middle-earth on the tabletop. Gondor and Rohan fighting at Pelennor or maybe within the ruins of Osgiliath would be a very cool idea.

What do you think of the War Leader?
