Default GW Confirms The Hobbit

From GW's White Dwarf Daily Blog (bolded emphasis is mine) (SOURCE):

Quote:
Far over the Misty Mountains From Dan Harden at 16:11 GMT



The time has come to pack your bags and ready your weapons for an adventure of epic proportions. Ever since we featured a picture of the characters from The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey in White Dwarf earlier this year, we've had eager hobbyists asking us whether we'll be making miniatures to go along with the movie. Today's video certainly suggests that we will be and that there's only five days before you get to see what's coming out.

Without giving the game away too much, you'll be able to find out more about The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey Strategy Battle Game in December's issue of White Dwarf, which will be out on Saturday.
In the meantime, make sure you keep up-to-date with all the latest movie news on thehobbitblog.com and keep an eye on White Dwarf Daily as we begin our journey into the dark depths of Middle-earth.
EDIT: Fixed Embedded Video

I'm not surprised. This was predicted for a long while.

Nonetheless cool though.

I'm not surprised either, but official word is always good. And this -does- validate the idea that December may end up being the release for the Hobbit.

I've contemplated a fantasy army using Dwarves from the LOTR line and hopefully this will give me more options to consider that.

DA have been rumored for next year for sometime now. I don't really get why you're upset.

And the LOTR games do have fans. I know a couple people are bigger fans of these games than they are of the others that GW does.

*Watches the crickets pushing the tumbleweeds along.*

Think that sums up bout the level of excitement people really have for the game. While it'll put some much needed life back into the LotR franchise, its not gonna attract anyone for the long haul.

That's always been a problem with the LotR games, they don't have any staying power between movies and there isn't a lot of room for growth (even if you draw stuff from the books to do it) leading to a new problem: how to keep the game "fresh".

Unless GW answers that one, sadly the Hobbit movies will be the last hurrah for the LotR games for sometime I think.

I dunno if I'm going to do these again, loved it originally but I agree it has no staying power while I kept playing my opponents slowly declined until they didn't bother.
