It is based on The Lord of the Rings film trilogy directed by Peter Jacksonand the book that inspired itwritten by J. The game was initially released in to coincide in with the film The Rylebook of the Ring. Later, beginning with the Shadow and Flame supplement, Games Strafegy began to add content that was featured in the original book but not in the logr adaptations: Tom BombadilRadagast and Glorfindel.

Games Workshop has also expanded its license with original material on areas such as Harad and Khandwith mixed reactions. The most recent complete edition of the rules, often called The One Rulebook to Rule them Allwas released by Games Workshop in Septemberwhile a compact edition entitled The Mines of Moria was also released.

Ruleobok earlyGames Workshop also released an expansion to the original game called War of the Ring which, according to the company, allows players to emulate the large battles included in J.

Tolkien’s The Lord of the Rings by streamlining the game system. Firstly, War of the Ring uses a larger number of models but the models are placed on movement trays with two cavalry models or eight infantry models on each. This allows for much easier and quicker movement of large numbers of models at once.

These are called “companies”. Larger creatures such as Ents and Trolls are treated as separate models and do not use movement trays.

Combat within the game is also treated differently. In the original game players both roll dice to determine who wins the fight strayegy then the victor rolls to see how much damage is done.

In War of the Ring only dice to determine damage are rolled. Also, in War of the Ringheroes are treated more like upgrades for their company rather than individual urlebook, as they are in the original game.

In addition to gaming, The Lord of the Rings Strategy Battle Game includes other common elements of the miniature wargaming hobby. These include the collecting, painting and conversion of miniature figures used in play, as well as the modeling of gaming terrain from scratch.

These aspects of the hobby are covered in Games Workshop’s monthly White Dwarf and on various gaming websites, as well as formerly in the fortnightly Battle Games in Middle-earth. In Forge Worlda division of Games Workshop focused on specialist resin miniatures and conversion kits as well as the Specialist Games ranges, assumed production of The Lord of the Rings Strategy Battle Game and all supplements.

In the s, Games Workshop produced a range of miniatures for The Lord of the Ringsusing original character designs based on fantasy art popular of the time. This was the first range of Lord of the Rings miniatures that Citadel created, taking over from Grenadier Miniatures inbefore the license passed to Mithril Miniatures around The current Lord of the Rings range stems from Games Workshop’s rights to produce a skirmish war game based on The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit books and films, in the 25mm miniature scale.

They also have the rights to produce Battle of Five Armiesa game based on the battle of similar name from The Hobbitusing smaller miniatures to enact larger battles more akin to the Warmaster system. Games Workshop has not acquired the rights to The Silmarillionwhich is still the exclusive property of the Tolkien Estate, but has the right to develop its own derivative intellectual property to fill in the gaps in The Lord of the Rings universe.


Four of the game’s designers were in the extended Return of the King film as Rohirrim at the Battle of the Pelennor Fields: Similar to Warhammer Fantasy Battle players, Lord of the Rings players commonly collect and paint one army or more of their choice and find opponents with similarly collected armies to play against.

Others simply collect the miniatures because they like the way they look. One popular way of collecting was through Battle Games in Middle-earth — a De Agostini magazine that came with one or more free miniatures some of which were initially exclusive to the publication and contained detailed hobby guides. As such, there are a wide variety of miniatures in the ever-growing range, including promotional miniatures, such as ” Gimli on Dead Uruk-hai”.

Games Workshop began to discontinue some of their metal miniatures, so that they could replace them with plastic miniatures. However, there was much complaint when they retired the popular ” Boromir Captain of the White Tower” miniature, and it was later brought back into production. There are a large number of differences from Warhammer in The Lord of the Rings Strategy Battle Gamewhich makes it unique and more realistic, accounting for its popularity as Games Workshop’s third core system.

Since the models are hand-painted and assembled by the player, players are often encouraged to design their own paint schemes, such as coloring them differently and so on, as well as using the pre-designed ones displayed in the various books. They are also encouraged to further modify their miniatures using parts from other kits and models known as “Bitz” to playersmodeling putty, or whatever the modeler can scrounge up. Terrain is a very important part of play. Common household items and hobby materials such as balsa woodcardboardand polystyrene can be transformed into ruins from the Second Age, woodland terrain, or the rocky wild of Middle-earth with the addition of plasticard, putty, and a bit of patience and skill.

Dioramasoften depicting scenes from the film and books, bring terrain and conversion skills together. The first three editions of the rulebooks were released with The Lord of the Rings filmsbut Games Workshop used the magazine White Dwarf and various supplements to “go beyond what is presented in the films of The Lord of the Rings and delve into the rich material of J.

The three older editions are to be re-released in updated supplements, while the compact Mines of Moria edition contains the updated rules only for what was shown in the films. In Februarypreceding the release of The Hobbit moviesall of the characteristic profiles kotr the old rulbook and White Dwarf were concluded in 5 sourcebooks: Currently, the official editions of rulebooks and supplements include:.

For materials done under the previous iteration of the rules, there exist errata and FAQ files, to ensure potential ruleblok conflicts between editions are resolved universally. In addition to the official rulesets, Games Workshop has also encouraged the writing of unofficial ” house rules ” by wargamers.

However, Games Workshop also released supplement summaries online in conjunction with Legions of Middle-earthso effectively a player only rulebool Legions of Middle-earth and the main rulebook in order to use the rules of the supplements.

All at Batlte is an adaptation of the rules for naval conflicts. The standard game is played with two or more armies on a board generally 4 feet long and 4 feet wide 16 square feet, or 1.

The game is primarily a skirmish game, but can be played in varying gmae. The turn-system game was played using four phases originally, but is now played using five under the current rules:. While the game is designed usually for play by only two players as the force lists are divided into “Good” and “Evil”[34] very large battles generally with more than models each side become easier to manage with multiple players working together on teams.


There are two types of troops: AragornFrodoCaptains, etc. Warriors are the core of the army: Each army must be either Good or Evil, and can only include strattegy from that side each model strtaegy named in the rules as being either Good or Evil. As Tolkien ‘s world is very rich in detail, players generally prefer to base their armies around one of the following themes:.

Games Workshop has taken the liberty to fill in gaps in Tolkien’s works by creating new heroes and units alike. Some are heavily criticized, such as the Isengard Troll, [54] having been described as “not thematically correct”; [60] whilst others have been popular additions.

Prior to the closure of Games Workshop’s official forum in Novemberthe site had forum lptr per day and well overregistered users.

The campaign was deemed “a fantastic rollercoaster”, with registered participants. Hobby websites have been key in organising sides in the Worldwide Campaigns, and indeed in creating their own campaigns and competitions, [68] such as the “Campaign of LoTRs”, a collaboration between the two websites “The Dark Council” and rulfbook.
