The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies has got it’s teaser trailer, first shown at Comic-Con over the weekend just gone. You can check it out above and the new teaser poster below…
That’s all very cool of course and I can’t wait to see the film as while I think it’s very much been adapted away from the books they have still been a very good set of Middle-Earth films. However, this does bring up a few interesting points for those of us looking at things from a wargaming point of view!
New miniatures! It looks like we’ll see a wartorn Bilbo with his mithril coat on, a Thranduil with duel blades and coated in rather spiffing armour, armoured versions of the Company of Thorin, a whole new army of Elves and Dwarves, Dwarves riding rams into battle, a plastic set of Dol Guldur Orcs, and maybe even a resurgence of the War of the Ring rules to fit this new big epic battle scene.
There might be a lot more in there too but this is what I spotted. Did you see anything else?
Are you excited for the final film?
