Games Workshop dropped a few little morsels of information for those diving into the Middle-earth Strategy Battle Game this week as they talked about the return of some classic models and the addition of a new set for events. So, we'll kick off with some invisible miniatures!

Ringbearer Set - Games Workshop

This Ringbearer Set comes with translucent versions of each of the different heroes and villains from the world of Middle-earth who carried The One Ring. The set contains Frodo, Old Bilbo, Young Bilbo, Gollum and Isildur.

This then gives you the chance to use each of these updated takes on The Nazgul for your games. I really did like the look of their original Nazgul which attacked The Fellowship on Weathertop but it was a bit hard to tell the models apart. However, if you dived in and picked up each of these characters instead you'd have a very dynamic looking collection of evil foes descending on the poor Hobbits!

I am consistently ushered back towards the awesome world of Middle-earth but I have to find someone to push me over the edge...
