A glorious time indeed for any Lord of the Rings gaming fan!

But why-oh-why so many Finecast releases? Plastic please…my currency is fucked 🙁

The Lord of the Rings: Kingdoms of Men

It is the swords of Men that have protected Middle-earth for countless centuries against the vast armies of Sauron. From the Horse Lords of Rohan, to the White Tower of Gondor, these men fight to protect the Free People of Middle-earth and drive back the darkness from their lands.

This 48-page Sourcebook for The Lord of the Rings contains all the rules you’ll need to field an army from the Kingdoms of Men (including army lists for Minas Tirith, Rohan, the Fiefdoms, Arnor and Númenor), as well as detailed background information and scenarios.

The Lord of the Rings: The Free Peoples

Middle-earth is home to many races, most of them much older than the men that now dominate it. Amongst them are the Elves and the Dwarves, who have fought against Sauron and his armies for centuries. Though their experience in war is legendary, these races are now few in number, their time in Middle-earth close to an end. As such, their armies are often small, but comprised of powerful elite warriors, all of them ready to fight for the fate of Middle-earth.

This 64-page Sourcebook for The Lord of the Rings contains all the rules you’ll need to field an army from The Free Peoples (including army lists for Elves, Dwarves, Hobbits, Ents, The Fellowship and the White Council), as well as detailed background information and scenarios.

The Lord of the Rings: Mordor

Mordor is home to the mighty armies of the Dark Lord Sauron, a place of darkness and destruction, watched over by the Great Eye, and bathed in the fires of Mount Doom. It is through the Black Gates of Mordor that hundreds upon thousands of Orcs march, their goal: to conquer the entirety of Middle-earth and enslave the people that live there. Led by the powerful Nazgûl and supported by monstrous Trolls, the lands of Elves, Men and Dwarves will all fall to the might of Mordor and its vast armies. It is only a matter of time.

The Lord of the Rings: The Fallen Realms

There are many armies that fight for the Dark Lord, including several realms of men. Some, like the Easterlings, followed the path of darkness willingly and worship Sauron as a divine being; whereas others were cast out of their homes and fight alongside it him out of revenge – men such as the Haradrim. Amongst these mighty armies of Evil Men lie the Uruk-hai, a different race altogether. Bred in the fire pits beneath the fortress of Isengard, they are stronger, braver and better armoured than any Orc could ever hope to be. With these armies fighting alongside those of Mordor, there is little hope for the Free People of Middle Earth.

The Lord of the Rings: Moria & Angmar

The Misty Mountains have ever been home to evil things. From the malicious Goblins that prey on unsuspecting Dwarves, to the colossal might of the Balrog of Morgoth, the Mines of Moria are a dangerous place to be at the best of times. Many travellers choose to avoid the route altogether, but instead find themselves confronted by the twisted armies of Angmar, a dark and forbidding land that’s home to Trolls, Wargs and Undead spirit creatures kept alive by the will of the Witch King.
