  4. Portland Hobbits will be running a single day, Lord of the Rings / Hobbit SBG tournament Saturday November 4: Location: Guardian Games (the upstairs Home Screen space) Format: 500 Points. 3 games: Domination, Reconnoitre, Lords of Battle. Scenario details can be found here: https://drive.google.com/open?id=0B5YAoymxJYTfdkVMNERYSWZoVWs. Event pack to follow, but some interim details: Arrive at 10AM, games to start at roughly 10:45. With 3 games, some time allowance between games and a meal break, we should wrap up around 6:30 - 7:00. Painted armies are NOT required, but there will be TP bonus points for fully painted and based (3 colors min) armies. Army bonuses as detailed in the 2017 Throne of Skulls rules pack https://drive.google.com/open?id=0B5YAoymxJYTfOFE2ajJ4LW82d2s will apply. Generally, GW miniatures required. If you have proxy questions, please inquire and request approval in advance of the tournament date. Rules will be based on the"The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey" ruleset. Profiles and army lists from the blue sourcebooks (Fallen Realms, Kingdoms of Men, Free Peoples, Mordor, Moria and Angmar) will apply, as well as those from "The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey" and "The Hobbit: There and Back Again", as well as Errata and FAQ documents provided on the Games Workshop website. The profiles Gollum (free points cost from the Mordor sourcebook), and Tom Bombadil and Goldberry are not allowed in any tournament list. We currently have 4 players confirmed, with space for up to 12. Tournament registration fee will be $10 (mostly to reserve the space). To register, email PortlandHobbits@gmail.com.

  14. LOTR SBG - New stuff and roll call for event on Jan 14

    Jesse is correct. GW's license only covers The Lord of the Rings trilogy and the Hobbit. Only material covered in those books may be referenced. That being said, Lord of the Rings includes the appendices, and there's a treasure trove of information there, including several references to characters and events from The Silmarillion. The Tolkien estate has been pretty clear that they'll never sell (at least not while Christopher Tolkien is running things) a license to be able to reference the Silmarillion or other historical "books" (aka collections of notes cobbled together by Christopher - although still very interesting).
  15. Anyone for a LOTR / Hobbit SBG event?

    I'm in Portland, so am thinking event would be at Guardian Games, or possibly another local location. Peter - does that work for you? Andrewgeddon and/or Threejacks - happy to loan you some miniatures if you'd be interested in playing, or even for just a casual game. I can field a fair variety of forces: Rohan, Gondor, Isengard, Moria, Numenor, Eregion, Mordor.
