Though you are invited to talk about Games Workshop and GW related news, this sub is not a catch-all for all GW games! Feel free to use the spoiler feature: What books do i need to play this game self. A few years ago, i think during agmar dark times where i thought the game was getting cancelled i went on a buying spree and bought tons of stuff off of ebay. I wanted to play the war of the ring. I only have that rule book and the rule book from the return of the angmr starter.
I’d like to play battle companies and the base strategy game but i am unsure what books i need. I have also heard tell of a new rule book, please good folk i require some assistance. PM me if you are looking for PDFs. As other posters have pointed out, there may well be a new book coming down the line in a few months. Also i just saw the top sbv There’s 5 source books. Each of these are the equivalent of a codex from 40k, except they hold the rules for multiple armies.
They have all the rules you need to play with the armies inside them except for the main rules which are included in the rulebook. As far as rules go you need the hobbit rulebook, either the large rulebook or the small one from the escape from goblin town starter set. However they are rumoured maybe confirmed to be changing to middle earth strategy battle game. And with that change will come a new rule book, so unless you can get one cheap you might want to hold off on getting it.
And to play battle companies you need to get the battle companies book. However the rules in general haven’t changed much from the rule book that you currently own.

So if you have people you can play with using those rules isn’t a bad idea to get yourself acquainted with how the game works until the new book drops. There are a couple of other faction rules ghat they trialled at the the throne of skulls tournament that allow you to gain a buff if you’re army contains models entirely from one army. But I’m unsure where you could download that now. Also war of the ring angmae regarded generally as a fun game to play casually but it gets incredibly unbalanced when you play try to play in a competitive setting.
Warriors are cheap with normally one or two point upgrades like shields, bows and spears. Monster and heroes are more expensive. Normal games are probably about – pts.
llotr Is it required to have the rulebook for each faction you want to play? What exactly do the books add? So if you’re goblin town, or anything from the first movie your rules and points are in the large hardback hobbit tile book or only for free. Although finding the page is Probably a pain. The there and back again book is for the second and third movie. But if you want to play rohan for example, you would need the kingdoms of men source book.

This book gives you the up to date rules, stats of your models and points values for playing games. But now that you have the kingdoms of men book you have the rules and points for 3 other factions. Thanks for the response.
Does this set contain the book needed for these units? Is this the old set with 8 high elf archers, 8 high elf swordsmen, 8 numenorians with shields and 24 goblins? If so then probably not. And if it does it is a decade out of date. That being said lotr hasn’t changed much. But the free people’s book is where you will find the rules for the high elves.
Numenor is in the kingdoms of men book and moria goblins are in the moria and angmar book. However just revealed today is the new box set with a rohan and mordor army, as well as a new rule book and new army rules.
They haven’t said what army rules will be there. But I imagine anything in the movies for sure. It would probably be best for you to wait until September for its release. Depends on what army you go for. The models are a bit smaller than say a space marine. But there are far less details. However the fact that they almost all have faces too paint is very time consuming.
However the model count is also far smaller than that’s of 40k, so a comparable army size will not take you as long too paint. At the end of the day it mostly depends on the army.
Army of the dead will be the easiest to paint. With the army being there ghost colour with no faces or details. Whereas goblins would be quite time consuming because of the model count. But per model there is less surface area and less detail so on a model to model basis they’re quicker and probably easier to paint than 40k and age of sigmar.
Will the new rules also mean I would need to get a new source book for each army?
Basically are the new rules compatible with the current source books? I honestly cannot say. I would imagine that the new rules will be similar to the current set, with some nice quality of life changes, but this is just speculation.
There is another book being released at the same time called armies of the LoTR. This will likely be new profiles for several factions from the movies, more specifically from the 2nd and 3rd. However this is pure speculation and the book could instead be new rules for everything.
But if I had to place my money somewhere it would be on the new book being rules for gondor, rohan, easterlings, haradrim, fiefdoms and mordor. But as per your question I would recommend saving a bit aside for the new book and its release in September.
Games Workhsop is going to announce their way forward with this game somewhere this month. They are rebranding it Middle Earth SBG, and probably will be churning out new models and maybe there will also be a new ltor of the rules this is rumoured.

Want to add to the discussion? If you want stuff from the hobbit movies get the book there and back again. If you’ve got any other questions I’ll be happy to answer. Seems like the best plan.
