Announcing Quest to Mount Doom
Source: https://www.warhammer-community.com/2018/04/05/announcing-quest-for-mount-doom/

Welcome master Hobbits to The Lord of the Rings: Quest to Mount Doom board game! This brand new board game pits players against one another in a game of skill, wits and above all, fun, as you race around the board in search of the most precious of items – The One Ring.
Quest to Mount Doom lets players recreate the epic journey that the Fellowship took as they journeyed to Mount Doom – but with a competitive twist! Each player is hunting for the One Ring that is hidden somewhere in Middle-earth. The aim is simple: find the Ring and take it to Mount Doom to see it destroyed. However, you don’t want other players to know you have it, they will only try and take it from you – so keep it secret, keep it safe!

You’ll be able to pick your favourite characters from the Fellowship, each with their own unique ability, and use the wide array of item and event cards to aid your cause, or disrupt your opponents as you search for the Ring. Finding the Ring is the easy part, taking it to Mount Doom will take every ounce of skill and cunning you have – just watch out for the Eye of Sauron!

Whilst we don’t have a confirmed release date for this new game yet, keep your eyes peeled for more information later in the year. In the meantime, the best way to keep up to date with all the announcements is to follow the Forge World Facebook page.

The Lord Of The Rings TV Series May Use Material From The Movies

When all is said and done, Amazon's JRR Tolkien-based series could end up being one of the most fascinating shows ever created, purely from a business point of view. The Hollywood Reporter has taken a look at the deals and details behind the show, including the fact that the company included members of the New Line team and payments to the Warner Bros.-owned studio to secure the chance to use material from Peter Jackson's films in the show if needed.
Nothing has been revealed yet about what part of Tolkien's work the series will channel, though it'll largely skip what Jackson brought to the big screen, mostly because there's no sense in repeating what he's covered and the movie studios own the rights to the main LOTR and Hobbit stories. Also mentioned? Jackson has apparently had talks with Amazon about possible involvement, though likely just offering the benefit of his experience as a producer than actually running the series – he's served his time in Middle-earth, after all.

With no one in place to make the show itself yet, more interesting are the various deals in place, including that original $250 million to simply buy the rights, the fact that the contract commits Amazon to five seasons at least and that it has to start shooting the show within two years. Oh, and given the creative challenges involved, it may end up costing more than $1 billion dollars. No pressure, then...

Forge World Preview: Khamûl the Easterling
Taken from: https://www.warhammer-community.com/2017/12/11/forge-world-preview-khamul-easterling/

Forge World has been hard at work fleshing out the world of Middle-earth™ with a range of models from The Hobbit: Motion Picture Trilogy™, and soon, Evil players will be able to add one of the notorious Nazgûl to their armies with a new model for Khamûl the Easterling.

Khamûl the Easterling is perhaps the most noteworthy of the Nazgul outside of the Witch King of Angmar himself. Did you know, for example, that he’s the only Ringwraith, apart from the aforementioned Witch King, named by Tolkien in the books? And did you know that, in The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring™, the Ringwraith that hunts Frodo at the beginning of the story is Khamûl? Indeed, following the death of his superior, Khamûl the Easterling would go on to lead the Nazgûl at the Battle of the Black Gate.

Khamûl the Easterling’s latest miniature depicts him as he appears during The Hobbit: The Battle of The Five Armies™. In this incarnation, he’s clad in ornate armour similar to that worn by the other Easterlings and should look right at home with the rest of your Nazgûl.

You’ll be able to add Khamûl the Easterling to your collection next year – in the meantime, why not browse Forge World’s full range of Middle-earth models?
