Games Workshop minatures list holds Hobbit spoilers?

August 10, 2012 at 9:31 pm by Demosthenes  - 

As you probably know, Games Workshop creates tabletop war-gaming miniatures. One of the licenses it holds is for The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings.

The clever folks on our message boards have very recently unearthed on Pastebin a list of film-related gaming miniatures that GW is set to release in the near future. This is potentially of interest not only to tabletop gamers, but also to film spoiler hunters.

It’s hard to to know far one can legitimately extrapolate from this list to scenes, and creatures, that might make it into the movies, but there is certainly heaps of food for thought here! If you want to put in your two cents, head on over to our message boards where a healthy discussion is going on about the implications.

  1. Holy cr*p this does hold A LOT of spoilers, WTF: ‘Bofur on Cold-drake’?????

  2. Just remember that Games Workshop has taken liberties with the original trilogy to make the wargame more balanced. So I wouldn’t expect that all of these named orcs/wargs/etc and unfamiliar troop types to be depicted in the films.

  3. Fanomir says:

    AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAND there we go. Arwen is finally being made into a warrior princess. We saw this coming. Goddammit. All joking aside though, I LOVE Jackson’s movies, and am unbelievably excited for The Hobbit Trilogy.

  4. I found that last entry to be the most interesting. The only reason I can think of it being there is there will be a flashback sequence explaining where the dragons come from, and if they are adding this to the script it’s because they are trying to plant the seed for a possible adaptation of The Silmarillion. In other words they’re trying to get their foot in the door and show people they have more stories to tell.

    If the added character depth in the script serves the film well, why not let them turn the Silmarillion into a series of films too. They just need to prove expounding on Tolkien’s writings isn’t necessarily a bad thing.

  5. dj says:

    Interesting, I didn’t think the Zaentz license included Turin, who is from the Silmarillion

  6. Mardragon says:

    I shouldn’t take the minatures to heart. It’s quite possible they extrapolated and created more figures for the game than will actually appear in the film.

  7. csoldier says:

    Reading comments from a ‘forum friend’ at Mithril Faerylands (Mithril Miniatures fan website) who knows someone at GW – in this insider’s words this list is Bullsh*t.
    Quote,” Whew, that’s a relief. I’ve just spoken to someone in the know at GW, and he describes the list as “a load of bullshite”. It’s apparently an utter fabrication, “but very cleverly done”.

  8. Friendly Wizard says:

    Ok why are Drogo Baggins and Samwise Gamgee under Dwarves?
    And barrow wights in the hobbit?
    I just HAVE to see how these movies turn out

  9. None818 says:

    SO glad these are fake. Though, would have liked to see a Venomblade Assassin.

  10. Artor says:

    Beren & Luthien would make for an awesome movie. It explains the ancestry of Aragorn, and has vampires, werewolves, Galadriel, and Sauron as a young maiar. I just hope they wouldn’t think of having Liv Tyler play Luthien, even though Arwen was supposed to be her spitting image.

  11. Manwe says:

    How is it said these days…
    Wow this is….AWESOME….and wrong at the same time.
    But we have to remember two things, one is that GW made just plain made up some of the units for their LOTR game, stuff that was not in the films, so they probably did the same here. Two is that some people are saying this list is bogus.

  12. Joe Graham says:

    When on earth ( middle) was Bofur on a Cold-Drake??!!
    Estel ( aragorn ) in the white council??
    Peter Jackson hmm well it will be interesting.
