As a player of this game, I usually look in the 28mm Fantasy boards, but stuff is posted elsewhere as well so it is not always easy to find. So:

A) Yes, establish a LOTR SBG board
B) No
C) Great! More boards!
D) make a Middle Earth gaming board to encompass all games, not just SBG.

I'd say D.
LotR/Hobbit SBG only has a couple years left anyway, but I suspect that folks will continue gaming in Middle Earth for a long time to come.

I'm with D as well.

leobarron200014 Dec 2014 6:49 a.m. PST

D definitely

E – make it a subset of fantasy, and it doesn't need a board, only a tag in TMP 5.01?

I would prefer D

I'm an A… It's a favorite of mine. But with that said I think D is the best option. I think that SBG will be around for a long time time to come but Middle Earth will endure long after GW is dust and half forgotten memories.

nevals14 Dec 2014 11:57 a.m. PST

D as well.

D for sure; I have a lot of interest in gaming Middle Earth, but not particularly the Peter Jackson/GW vision of it (not that I dislike that interpretation, just don't agree with all of it). But it could be used for SBG (and War of the Ring) discussion and all sorts of other things.


Landorl14 Dec 2014 7:31 p.m. PST

D as well. It seems like GW are stopping supporting the game and supporting collectors only based on some of their most recent pricing for LOTR figs.

Gone Fishing15 Dec 2014 6:26 a.m. PST

Another vote for D. While it's a great game that I have played many times, I'm not sure SBG has much of a following anymore.

It would be nice to have a board include all interpretations of Middle Earth. I suspect I'm one of those in the real minority that doesn't much care for Jackson's take on the books. I love the music and the landscape, but much of the rest doesn't do it for me personally. So a board that could include Jackson as well as, say, Bakshi or some of the older illustrators, would be a great resource.

D for me. I would welcome a board for Middle Earth gaming and modeling.

I enjoy LOTR SBG and have a lot of the original figures and books. I used to play a lot. I also bought some of the plastics for the Hobbit (Goblin Town, Eagles, Mirkwood Elves). The newer plastics have to be something that I actually need as they are quite expensive. I do not buy resin figures for gaming.

I am off to see Battle of the Five Armies tonight so maybe that will reignite my interest in gaming. However, I will probably look to plastic historical figures or Reaper Bones as proxies rather than spend on the new GW stuff.

Shadyt18 Dec 2014 9:43 a.m. PST

A or D

tkdguy30 Dec 2014 12:08 a.m. PST

I would go with D, since I generally use AD&D or MERP when I game in Middle-earth.

What is LOTR SBG?

D likewise, Frodo Lives….

LOTR SBG = Lord of the Rings Strategy Battle Game (Games Workshop's licensed middle earth miniature rules)

Weasel04 Feb 2015 2:13 p.m. PST

No more boards but if one was made, make it "lord of the rings" in general, not for a specific game.
