I hope so but, I dont think so. WD issues are damaged and destoryed from the super storm. They said they are going to be running late for the next few months. So lets hope this issue didn't get hammered. But If it does we should be able to so the Euro trash version.

I think there is a chance we'd see some European pics tomorrow or Wednesday. I've got an iPad subscription for WD now so I will be downloading the issue as soon as its out.

I suspect they will get leaked far earlier than I could post them. :wink:

just dont like painting rolls of fat, hairy moles, and sweaty blotches. I will be avoiding that model for upcoming goblin armies.

really interested in the orc hunters, how they compare to warg riders etc.

lame white council, I guess you can add in the older elf heroes to them.

I am hoping for spider variations grunts, elites etc; but they might not show up till the 2nd movie.

I think I'm most excited about the Goblin town scenery. I'm already imagining a cool Goblin Town board for Adepticon and BBB.

owie. looks like the LE box is the only thing I'm getting on the initial release. We're looking at a Dec 1 release correct? If so then I'm going to probably preorder mine at games plus since I'm going to be there for battletech that day.

Did you see the new teaser video today? No models but it looks like the Goblin Town Scenery. I'm even more excited about the scenery now.

No pics but this from From Dakka Dakka:

Kroothawk wrote: can confirm that the release and price lists are legit. No other main release in December except Hobbit.

Radagast is indeed the limited miniature from the starter box. Starter contains indeed Gandalf, Bilbo, the dwarfs and a whole bunch of Goblins including the Giant Goblin King. Goblins look different from the curent ones. Wearing loincloths, a bit bigger, a bit more deformed (Chaos star wasn't totally false ). Goblin King looks great, wears crown and loincloth, comes with a throne.
I assume that the non-limited starter will have a "soft release date" a few days after the limited edition is sold out (usually a week later).

Trolls are large and look similar to Ogres. Hunter Orcs mounted and unmounted have more cloths and armour, I like the look more than current Orcs. Goblin Town scenery basically is a set of wharf like wooden plank roads on different storeys, connected with poles and ladders (as seen in the second trailer).

So much from a first hasty glimps at the WD December.

Oh, man! My Great Goblin! What would a 600 point Misty Mountain goblin army look like? And would Joe mind playing Good in the Team Tournament? So many questions!
