Because we need more LotR miniatures games

Jeez. Although, honestly, this one is not looking like such a bad move at first blush. WizKids obviously has the capacity to make a lot of this punch-out plastic and make it cheap, and it looks from the picture like plasticard is well suited to the sort of rack-’em-up game where your units get pushed around in formation. The price certainly may be right compared to the competition, but is WK driving down its own profit margin? Should they be announcing another plasticard game, given that they professed at GTS that they aren’t sure anyone will buy the first one? Is that fell beast big? Yes. Yes, it is. Well, folks, that’s the Lord of the Rings Epic Battle Game, set to ship in October. Thanks and good night. Try the beer-battered trout.
