Contents [ show ] Licensing Games Workshop has the rights to produce a skirmish war-game based on the films and also on The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit novels by J.
The rights to produce a roleplaying game version of the films were sold to another firm, Decipher, Inc. Though they also have the rights to produce a Battle of the Five Armies game, another company already owned the rights to the one-inch scale normally used by Games Workshop. For this reason, the game was done in 10mm scale for the normal warriors, and "heroic" scale for the named characters. Games Workshop has not acquired the rights to The Silmarillion , which is currently the exclusive property of the Tolkien Estate.
Others simply collect the miniatures because they like the way they look. One popular way of collecting is through " Battle Games in Middle Earth " - a DeAgostini magazine which comes with a free miniature some of which are exclusive to the publication and painting guide.
Recently, Games Workshop began to discontinue some of their metal miniatures, so that they could replace them with plastic miniatures. They justified this action by saying that the quality in plastic moulding has improved to a point where they are almost as detailed as metal, and that plastic is cheaper to produce.
However, there was much complaint when they inexplicably retired the popular " Boromir Captain of the White Tower" miniature, and it was later brought back into production. In contrast, some Warhammer players dislike LOTR SBG because they think the miniatures are geared too much towards skirmish and have armies that are not of a large enough scale. Modelling Mixing parts from different models is a popular method of conversion a converted Maeglin miniature .
Since the models are hand-painted and assembled by the player, players are often encouraged to design their own paint schemes 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 players , modeling putty, or whatever the modeler can scrounge up. These conversions are often entered into contests at sponsored tournaments and similar gaming events, such as the One Ring Awards.
Terrain is a very important part of play. Though Games Workshop makes terrain kits available, many hobbyists prefer to make their own elaborate and unique set pieces. Common household items like soft drink cans, coffee cups, Styrofoam packing pieces, and pill bottles 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.
However, due to the licensing agreements between New Line Cinema and Games Workshop, pieces of models for The Lord of the Rings Strategy Battle Game are not allowed to be combined with other model lines for official tournaments or conversion awards. The same is true for pieces from other manufacturers. The first three editions of the rule-books were released with the Lord of the Rings films , but Games Workshop used White Dwarf and various Supplements as an outlet for characters that were in the book but not the film.
The current edition, the "One Rulebook to Rule them All", contains the entire set of rules updated and presented in a single large volume, including those of previous supplements. The three older editions are to be re-released in updated supplements. Currently, the official editions of Rulebooks and Supplements include: The Fellowship of the Ring Rulebook, for the first installment of the films, recently released as an updated supplement The Two Towers Rulebook, for the second installment of the films The Return of the King Rulebook, for the third and final installment of the films Shadow and Flame Supplement , featuring rules for characters from the novel not included in the film.
