This is a skirmish-level game. All figures are single individuals, with good or bad heroes with great influence on the out come of the battle. Great figures by Game Workshop, but other lines are available.

We all have our games that go against the norm. I truly enjoy the Lord of the Rings miniatures game because it is so immersive and every game tells a story. The rules are surprisingly simple for a miniatures game and the universe is so endless there are always new things to do and discvoer with this game! (It's nice that Games Workshop still produces stuff for this game even though the hype was a decade ago.)

UPDATE: Well, some 5 years later, there now are many, many cheaper (but still very high-quality) plastic figures available and you don't have to spend a ton of money on the game the way you used to. The core system has been simplified and streamlined and is now a great game. And the addition of the Legions point-buy system is a great scearnio aid.

The legendary scenario balance problems still exist (the "second edition" of the Fellowship of the Ring book was absolutely horrid), but are not as frequent, thankfully. The only other issue is that I wish the game were less wedded to the movies. The line has moved on and given us some geat stuff for Dwarves and Arnor, just to mention two, but the Orcs still look like guys in prosthetics, not like Tolkienesque Orcs, and Aragorn is an overrated killing machine. Meanwhile Gandalf and the Ringwraiths seem weak.

Surprisingly fun. The game is pretty decent, and Games Workshop provides a plethora of excellent material to get you into the whole miniatures-painting thing gently (and it should be said, if you don't enjoy the painting, the game will not be good value). Once I got going I found the painting to be fun and not hard to get very nice results. The plastic figures are a nice way to get into the game cheaply, although you will almost certainly want to buy the Fellowship boxed set and a Cave Troll, and possibly the Weathertop set also if you get into it. Once you get sucked in, though, the sky is the limit on what you can spend ... I wish there was more plastic. The Two Towers set has more plentiful plastic, and the scenarios are a huge improvement over the Fellowship game, although they require more units generally (I haven't played a loser scnenario from TTT yet, while the FotR scenarios, while some were still interesting, were more or less completely unbalanced).

A fast and fun game. Can be played with a handful of minis or entire armies. Always willing to play at my LGS.

the combat system in this game is fantastic with just a touch of extras with hero abilities. Games Workshop's best game by far considering its not about whomever rolls more dice in a turn wins like their other 2 games... it can be an expensive game to play though

This game is great as long as you like spending a FORTUNE on the minatures. This game is for hardcore players only.

Just the right level for me. Enough of a wargame to be tactical, skirmish level to keep it interesting, and just plain fun. My favourite skirmish-level miniatures wargame.

(Rating reflects both the game - probably about a 7 - and the excellent line of minis - at least a 9.)

Beautiful minitiatures... & simple & elegant gameplay. However, they shld have thrown in some of the fellowship figurines & add in more special functions for them.

This is the best game that comes out of GW today. The rules are fun and place a lot of emphasis on the Heroes, just like (I imagine) Tolkien would have liked. The line has a ton of consistency amongst all of its minis, and they look and feel incredibly coherent. I enjoy the game and the figures.

Slightly different from other GW rule-sets. Good and funny game, it can be played in less than 2 hours. Very beautiful miniatures.
