Final Production 15 June 2005
Sabertooth has announced the that The Return of the King will be the final release for The Lord of The Rings TMG game. This should be in December 2005

Not such bad news in my opinion. Now you can collect figures with an end in sight and then concentrate on selecting your favourite armies and playing the game.

Preminum Line 2005 releases 16 March 2005

The Mordor Trolls and Fell Beast are due out in July followed by the Return of the King expansion later in the summer.

Sabertooth may have a new game for release spring of 2006. If based on a GW license, it could be for LOTR fans. A hobbitt game maybe ? It is rumoured to be a very big release and something for fans to keep an eye out for. Watch this space !

People are asking what the meaning of the sign on the POTD die is. There is no official answer yet.

 

Here is my possible suggestion.

The word isildur in Elvish chopped and manipulated.

Let me know what you think.

October 2004
The Two Towers Expansion.

Unfortunately the expansion is postponed to January, as explained today by Sabertooth.

"The release of Two Towers has unfortunately been pushed to January due to a production problem. The proofs provided by the manufacturer in China did not match the production test figures that were coming off the line. The plastic strength differed, causing serious issues with the exciting new cavalry figures introduced in the set.
Sabertooth refused to release a inferior product and opted to delay the release, and assure you get the high quality figures that you have come to expect from us. We do apologize for this unforeseeable delay and any inconvenience it has caused".
