Available for a limited time only (until 18:00 GMT on 20th February 2022) is a host of different characters to join your middle earth armies. Get them quickly and as these are all made to order, they may take as long as 90 days to arrive. The various different additions coming to a game near you are:

Easterling Warriors Warband

£40

This set contains 13 metal warriors and 1 captain, with the latter being equipped with an Easterling glaive while one warrior is equipped with a pike and banner, 4 have swords & shields while 8 have pikes & shields. Each model comes unpainted with a 25mm citadel round slotta base.

Games Workshop Description:

Past the Sea of Rhûn lie the lands ruled by the Easterlings, vast tracts uncharted by Men of the West. Across the lands amass armies of fanatics sworn to the Dark Lord, and at the close of the Third Age, they ready themselves for war on a scale not seen since the first War of The Ring. Foremost among these armies are the Easterling Warriors, skilled fighters who are as devoted to the Dark Lord as they are cruel and unflinching in battle. While cowardly Orcs might quiver and flee, and Men less devoted to the cause may blanch at the task in hand, when the fighting is fiercest, the Easterlings can be found undertaking their murderous task with a sinister enthusiasm.

Easterling Captains adhere to a strict martial code, creating cruel but capable leaders who follow the orders of their superiors, no matter how callous. Armed with impregnable shields, and a variety of pikes and swords, Easterling Warrior warbands are able to shift into a defensive formation that presents their enemies with a terrible choice – charge into a wall of blades and shields, or be routed by the oncoming attack

Armoured Moria Goblins

£36

Each set contains 12 single piece metal goblins and a single goblin captain who is equipped with an orc bow and sword. 2 of the warriors have spears & swords, 4 have orc bows & swords while the other 4 have shields & swords. Each model comes unpainted with a 25mm citadel round slotta base.

Games Workshop Description:

Since the fall of Khazad-dûm, the former Dwarven Kingdom of Moria has become overrun by swarms of these foul and stunted creatures. Rarely setting foot outside of their mountain home, the goblins of Moria have developed incredible dexterity, and a vicious side that they are more than willing to unleash upon those that intrude into their dark realm.

Led by a Captain who has climbed the ranks through a combination of vicious cunning and plain brutality, the Goblins of Moria skulk in the darkness, armed with a mix of weapons both ranged and melee, harassing the enemy. When the time is right, their Captain coordinates them in order to overwhelm tougher opponents.

Galadhrim Warriors with Swords (Haldir’s Elves)

£15

This set contains 3 metal warriors each supplied on a 25mm citadel round slotta bases, and comes unpainted.

Games Workshop Description:

The Golden Wood is defended first and foremost by the warriors of the Galadhrim, steadfast soldiers who have honed their skills in combat across many wars throughout the ages. Like all Elves, the Galadhrim are equally versed with blade, spear and bow. Tasked with the protection of Lothlórien, these warriors shall give their lives in its defence, for should it fall, Middle-earth shall surely follow.

Armoured Galadhrim Warriors are incredible warriors, with a Fight value that is superior to all but the deadliest adversaries. Their Elf-forged blades also lend them superb flexibility on the battlefield.

Galadhrim Warriors with Bows (Haldir’s Elves)

£15

This set of 3 metal warriors comes unpainted with each one coming with a 25mm citadel round slotta base.

Games Workshop Description:

The Golden Wood is defended first and foremost by the warriors of the Galadhrim, steadfast soldiers who have honed their skills in combat across many wars throughout the ages. Like all Elves, the Galadhrim are equally versed with blade, spear and bow. Tasked with the protection of Lothlórien, these warriors shall give their lives in its defence, for should it fall, Middle-earth shall surely follow.

Armoured Galadhrim Warriors are formidable enough on the battlefield, but when armed with Elf bows, no enemy is safe from their deadly reach!

Lorien Elf Archers

£15

This set contains 4 metal single piece archers each coming unpainted and on a 25mm citadel round slotta base.

Games Workshop Description:

The Wood Elves of Lórien dwell on the outskirts of the forests acting as scouts and the first line of defence. Yet unlike the Galadhrim warriors plated in golden armour, the Wood Elves prefer to don forest-coloured robes so as to blend into their woodland surroundings. This enables them to ambush their enemies, firing from hidden groves rather than meeting their foes in open war – a tactic that has led to many victories for the Elves of Lothlórien.

The Elf Archers of Lórien can be taken as a Warrior choice for armies of Lórien. Ideal skirmish units, they are preternaturally accurate with their bows and wear elven cloaks that grant them camouflage as they effortlessly traverse dense woods.

Captain of Dale

£10

Leading your army with his sword held up high, this is a single metal captain on a 25mm citadel round slotta base and comes unpainted.

Games Workshop Description:

The Captains of Dale, City of Men, are veteran warriors who have fought in numerous battles before rising to command. Their experience of the battlefield is an invaluable asset when training the warriors under their command. When their homeland is threatened, these leaders are the first of the city’s defenders into the fray.

Hardy warriors equipped with armour, sword, and shield, the Captains of Dale are handy fighters and great leaders. With years of martial prowess under their belts, they are able to command their men to heroic feats.

Galadriel Protectoress of Lothlorien

£8

This is a single metal figure of one of the most powerful entities in middle earth, this is a spellcaster for your Lothlorien and white council armies. This figure comes unpainted on a 25mm citadel round slotta base.

Games Workshop Description:

Amongst the eldest and most powerful of her kind, Galadriel is a part of the White Council that ventures to Dol Guldur to save Gandalf from the Necromancer. Galadriel cares for Gandalf deeply, so much so that she will not allow harm to come to him – a fact that the Keeper of the Dungeons finds out first-hand. Able to banish the Nazgûl through force of will and bearing the Light of Eärendil, Galadriel confronts Sauron, threatening to destroy him if he does not return to the void from whence he came.

Lady Galadriel one of the most powerful beings in all of Middle-earth. Able to cast a variety of powerful spells, depending on the army she is in, Galadriel makes a formidable addition to Lothlórien and White Council forces.

Moria Goblin Shaman

£6

This spellcaster for your moria armies comes equipped with a cruel spear and armour coming as an unpainted single metal minature.

Games Workshop Description:

Quite where the Moria Goblin Shamans received their knowledge of dark magics is unknown, although it is likely they learned it in the dark corners of the mountains, away from prying eyes. Possessing a crude and brutish form of magic, these shamans are capable of whipping their followers into a bloodthirsty frenzy, enabling them to carry on the fight even after suffering grievous wounds.

Decked out in heavy armour and carrying a cruel spear, this Moria Goblin Shaman brings a range of nasty spells to Moria armies that are looking for a little bit of a magic punch to aid their dark exploits.
