Really doesn't make sense to have it as a LoTR issue in my mind given that.
Let us celebrate the 25th anniversary of our beloved Space men with a bearded wiz... Wait?

I can't remember anyone having any speculations about a LotR release, the first thing I heard about it was what IanC just posted - curved ball indeed.

I do enjoy the miniature. Knowing myself I will probably buy 2 if possible, one for keepsakes and one to modify to hell and back. And here I was planning to make 2012 a low spending year...

The model however, is awesome.

Most of the issues that focussed on LoTR when it was first released had photo covers. Hell I was even in the issue that had aragorn's face as the cover - some time around 2004 (I was in the fatasy battle report about the independant stockist (mine was the vamp counts that got raped by the brand new (at the time) lizardman army that had about 6 more dispel dice than I had cast dice even though I was running 3 necromancers (oh, I'm the one in the hat in the pics ))

Anyway, the model is cool. Brings back memories of that artwork. Not that I saw it when it forst came out but they reused it quite a lot over the years. Sucks about the limited stock, means I ain't getting one thanks to lack of real money in my UK account - I only have this stupid monopoly style Polish money.

You can tell i'm not a LOTR fan and completely ignored this period.... lol. Still, its poor printing quality if thats the official shot.

Still again... seems odd to have the promised 40k 25th aniversary issue be LoTR when all of the relible rumour guys... Harry and Stickmonkey etc. have made no mention at all of LotR.

Plus, one of them said something along the lines of 'Nids will get some valentines love while Crons will get some leap year love'. in other words... Febuary.

My thoughts exactly..... It would be very odd for all the reputable rumor mongers to be so wrong all at the same time. Everything put out by everyone said nothing about LOTR getting a release, and I agree that it would be very odd to have a 25th anniversary WH40k edition of WD to be dedicated to LOTR as the feature.

Not to mention taking into account the couple of fake leaks we have had in recent weeks.

I remember reading in the last issue of white dwarf that they are celebrating the 25th anniversary of 40k all month. I don't think this next issue is the anniversary edition.

As far as the photo covers......they are the worst. White dwarf went through a real ugly phase of these. Some were photos of minis, which were bad, but the lotr ones were worse.
