The last days of the Third Age of Middle-earth may have been dominated
by the many great battles fought during the climactic War of the Ring,
yet the most seismic event of all was the destruction of the One Ring
and the final defeat of the Dark Lord Sauron. Crucial to this lasting
victory over the forces of darkness was the epic journey undertaken by
the Nine Walkers – the Fellowship of the Ring – for the deeds of its
members, both good and ill, were destined to rule the fate of all.
This expansion for the Middle-earth Strategy Battle Game brings the
fateful quest of the Fellowship of the Ring to life. As well as
background on where the Fellowship’s journey took them and vivid
descriptions of the the many trials and tribulations they faced along
the way, the book features a wealth of new rules, Scenarios and
profiles. There are also rules for a linked, 28-scenario campaign that
enables you to refight every key engagement involving the Fellowship and
its members – from the smallest skirmish to the largest battle – with
your collection of Citadel and Forge World miniatures.
Inside this 128-page hardback supplement, you will find:
Scenarios: 28 Narrative Scenarios, from the very start
of Frodo's journey in Farmer Maggot's crop in the Shire, right through
to the destruction of the One Ring in the fire of Mount Doom.
The Journey of the Ringbearer: Rules for linking the
Narrative Scenarios together into a flowing campaign, with each battle
having an impact on others. These include rules to represent the length
of the journey, your Heroes being injured (or even dying!), and
recovering their strength between encounters with the enemy.
Armies: Detailed army focuses, including the strengths,
weaknesses and key models for five Armies: The Fellowship, Rangers of
Ithilien, Wanderers in The Wild, The Black Riders and Cirith Ungol. Also
includes two new profiles for the Rangers of Ithilien list, and two for
the Wanders in the Wild list.
Legendary Legions: Rules for six new and updated
Legendary Legions: The Breaking of the Fellowship, Rangers of Ithilien,
Lurtz's Scouts, Depths of Moria, The Black Riders, and Cirith Ungol.
Fantasy Fellowship: Guidelines for creating your own
Fantasy Fellowship by assembling Heroes from across Middle-earth in a
similar way to the actual Fellowship of the Ring, but accounting for
numerous 'what ifs' that could have reasonably happened throughout
Middle-earth's and The One Ring's history. Includes rules for selecting a
Ringbearer, their Companion, and the rest of The Fellowship. Also
provides a slightly revised Fantasy Fellowship campaign, consisting of
23 linked Scenarios. (Please note that you will need the War in Rohan
and Gondor at War supplements to be able to play all the way through the
scenarios featured in the Fantasy Fellowship campaign.)
Weathertop Masterclass: An extended masterclass on how
to best build and paint the Weathertop scenery piece, available on
ForgeWorld.co.uk, which was a key location on Frodo's journey.
