New Hobbit Models - New Lord of the Rings Profiles!

Mon Jul 18, 2016 6:28 am

*** disclaimer ***
Take all the following information with a pinch of salt, this is only what we can remember or interpreted :D at fw open day http://www.belloflostsouls.net/2016/07/ ... otted.html

The pdf low resolution small print out looked amazing (this is definitely true)
So much stuff in it as an expansion.
New profiles, army lists, scenarios etc

Every*** (hobbit sbg) ***army list has been updated with either new profiles or tweaks
Existing profiles have been re-thought / tweaks sometimes major changes

Points drop some profiles. Allowing some larger heroes to be used in lower points matches

Thranduil just one profile now, no king of mirkwood profile

M'egolas is gone. No longer has 3 attack and fight 7

If you see it in the movie there is a profile,
Minus big massive tunnel worm

Buffs from a single list - if your Army consists of models from just one army there are army buffs that will be added to your force.

There will definitely justice dale ... Just saying ....

Chariot- 2 pages of rules for charriot
Erebor champions upgrade models on top treated individually according to magic, and no brutal power attacks-
Treated like a mini Mumakil charge and wounds

Ram riders- possibility of auto knock down when charging into combat.

General troops, Banners, horns, shields, armour to troops.

Mirkwood elves Heavy armour and horsemen can take shields D6 cavalry

Lots of points changes, and slight tweaks that even we haven't noticed and will take comparison with previous profiles to see the difference -
We don't know the rules well enough and didn't have the time to notice from memory what they are :)

Gundabad trolls... Beefier than mordor trolls ... Oh yes.
Ogres fast and can charge through own units.
Giant bats are a thing- I don't remember any information on these.

Combat wraiths with 7 profiles. With multiple for 2 special rules and no will of evil. So no poof and gone like castellans wink emoticon;)

Keeper of the dungeons - Golb has a profile very decent mid level hero.

Mirkwood spiders are cheaper and better

This sounds a little Sigmar'ish, which is great!

Could you fill in some details as to what low res PDF you are talking about?

All I have heard for sure is that there will only be one version of Thranduril, which will be a single combined profile.

There might be some consolidation of rules for other characters too (like how many Aragorns and Sarumans do we actually need :) ) but that is just speculation.

I would rather share one lifetime with you than face all the ages of this world alone.

Hopefully they will fix some of those broken Hobbit profiles. When I was getting into the game with my friend, we did a sort of role-playing adventure in Harad. This allowed us to create our own characters which would have ruined the balance of the game. Mine was a Defence 8 3 Attack Gondorian hero with a very dangerous horse and special weapons on par with Aragorn. The only thing he couldn't do were Brutal Power attacks (because they didn't exist yet). Looking back know, his profile would have fitted right in with the Hobbit releases :) .

Well Legolas and Thranduil are becoming less powerful (I think).
