This game is awesome! Slight learning curve, thus War of the Ring is still my favourite. But for War Hammer players this is the perfect game! Great value! Gaming just doesnt get better than this.

see Warmaster entries.

11/14 update: finally got around to playing this. the point made earlier about its value cannot be understated. frankly, if it weren't for the crazy amount of materiel packed into this game, i'd still be going back and forth on whether to give up on Warmaster altogether, and dedicate the minis i'd collected so far toward other games.

this game made actually playing Warmaster with miniatures possible. turns out it's one of my favorite games.

12/13: recently acquired from ebay for its 10mm figs. for years, i had coveted 10mm armies. even with OOP markup, this is a bargain.

an added plus is that i've been painting up MicroWorld's 6mm undead, and the 10mm figs in this box are a close-enough match. (MW's 6mm undead is about the size of the orcs in this game; taller than the dwarves, shorter than the elves and humans.)

the figures in this box are exceptionally detailed, probably better than any 10mm line, including GW's pewter Warmaster line.

High price, but pure high quality. I also bought all the expansion minis. This set is absolutely worth the money! Since only 8000 copies were made, be fast and get a copy while they're available. Now where's me ax...

This has everything you need to play the battle titled. The only thing someone may want to play the battle is a unit of Bolg's Bodyguards, as there are rules for them in the scenario.

People that complained that Smaug isn't included should shut up as they obviously don't know what they're talking about.

Had a blast with this game after my first play recently. The rules are far superior to most GW products. The game didn't last long enough to suffer the same fate as Warhammer Fantasy Battles: Too many rules from too many suppliments designed to milk the product.

The "command" mechanic in the game is reminiscent of traditional wargames and works very well.

Very cool game, captures the feel of the battle very well; a must have for miniature gamers who are also Tolkien fans (surprisingly, very many!)
And its a GW product that doesn't make you spend $200 to have a big battle!
There are add-ons (the metal Smaug figure is very good mini! Heavy, detailed, and dragon-tastic!), but the base game is good for many sessions of play.

Using the 'Warmaster' engine, this is _THE_ Middle Earth miniatures game (mass combat)
Easily affordable when released, this is crazy hard to find now.

Why wasn't this re-released to coincide
with the Hobbit Movies...?!?
Pity.

Good stand-alone miniatures game with great plastic models and artwork. A tidied-up set of Warmaster rules. The dryness of Warmaster is mitigated somewhat by the heavy scenario-driven gameplay.

I don't generally play GW games but really liked the idea of the "Battle in a box" concept for this game. It is FULL of detailed pieces and the rules seem as if they will be easy o figure out. Outstanding production value of all the components.

This is a great stand alone game based off of the Warmaster rules set. THe minitures that come in the box are excellent (although very tiny and a pain to paint). Game play is straightforward and fast.

This has proved to be much better than I expected. The 50+ pages of rules can be boiled down to just 1 and they give a fun and very quick game. The flyer units are devastating as the enemy cannot retreat through them but a house rule will take care of that. Though I will probably end up using the figures with home-grown rules I do at least now understand why War Master is popular.
The actual scenario is however flawed as the hints section suggests doing things which are not in the book (as far as I remember).

Basically Warhammer Epic LotR style. Nice components for the price, but not a very compelling game. Warhammer's rules and mechanics now seem seriously outdated in comparison to newer titles.

Cheap way of getting great minis and try an interesting, miniature system stemming from the WH tradition. No colours nor proper terrain somewhat reduce the enjoyment (even had troubles in making minis stand on slopes...).
