Forge World Shows Off New Releases For The Hobbit

February 27, 2017 by stvitusdancern

Over the weekend Forge World gave those lucky enough to be attending The Hobbit Grand Tournament at Warhammer World some first looks into the new releases coming for The Hobbit Strategy Battles Game.

Up first is something for all the Woodland Elf fans out there (me!), Thandruil, the Woodland Elf King riding into battle on his mighty Elk. The detail is exceptional and I am a fan of the large resin base to mount him on when you are not playing and want to display him.

Some comments on Facebook have expressed concern over the possible cost of this miniature based on the display base. I, on the other hand, am looking at it as a centrepiece to my collection.

The next group to come up are the Iron Hills Dwarfs which include the Command section with Mattocks and Iron Hills Dwarfs with Mattocks. All mighty fierce warriors in their own right.

Lastly, all our favourite heroes and races need bad guys to fight and the Forge World has answered the call with two exceptional Troll models: Gundabad Troll with Crushing Club and Gundabad Troll with Scythe Gauntlets. Both will be formidable enemies and will present quite the challenge to our heroes.

I am very excited by the rebirth of The Hobbit Strategy Battles Game and new miniatures being added, I only wish my bank account was as well.

Have you tried The Hobbit Strategy Battle Game?
