Games Workshop is returning to Middle-earth again this weekend with the re-release of some more of the classic miniatures from their old metal range. Heroes of good are at the forefront and if you're very much into the saga of the Ringbearer then maybe this would be a good starting point.

Frodo Sam & Gollum - Middle-earth Strategy Battle Game

This set is one of those that might have passed a few folks by but it would be a good way to play out those final moments around the summit of Mount Doom. If you're a dedicated Lord Of The Rings fan then it would be good to have these to round out your most likely expansive collection of Frodos, Sams and Gollums!

Elven Legends

As well as Frodo, Sam and Gollum you can also pick up some of the Elves of legend that fought for Middle-earth. Haldir gets a rather heroic death in the movies but if you fancy using him to clear the woods of Uruk-Hai then there is this set here.

Haldir - Middle-earth Strategy Battle Game

Haldir // Middle-earth Strategy Battle Game

This set gives you Haldir with sword at the ready or with bow in hand. Whatever weapon he uses I'm sure he will be able to make sure the servants of evil don't find their way into his lady's realm.

Sticking with the theme of mighty Elves we also have this set which offers up Gildor Inglorion & Glorfindel!

Gildor is a pretty overlooked character but he is a damn fine addition to an alternative adventuring party. The same goes for Glorfindel who would have been an excellent addition to the Fellowship if you wanted to play a bit of "what if?" on the tabletop. Much like with the Ringbearer set above, these might have been some of the miniatures which just passed you by back in the day.

Terrors In The Dark

Before the Hobbits even made it to Lothlorien or Rivendell they had to pass through the Barrow-downs. In the books, they ran into these terrible spectres and had to be rescued by a certain someone!

Barrow-wights - Middle-earth Strategy Battle Game

Barrow-wights // Middle-earth Strategy Battle Game

These Barrow-wights join a selection of Dead Marsh Spectres and even some Black Riders which will also become available to order this weekend. It's always nice having a trip down memory lane with these Middle-earth miniatures although I would still love to see them making some new models too!

Are you going to pick up some of these classic miniatures?
