Not overly inspired by these releases. It's sad.
The only "hobby" GW is interested in is lining their pockets with your money.

I was hoping for the Erebor dwarves to look more like the Grimhamers.

The men of dale aren't what I expected but they do match the movie imagery. It's a little frustrating that they are releasing models without the rules. Makes me hard to be a Hobbit apologist :D

Also interesting that Thror is models with a shield but his profile doesn't give him access to one.

Rumour has it that the profiles are in the box. I have six of these sets on order for this weekend. Now I only have to get command models which will probably cost me as much as the plastic figures themselves.

There are rules for Captain of Dale as well as Warriors of Dale. The Garrison of Dale army list can include either of these options and they can be taken in an Army of Thror list.

Army of Thror list? Does that mean my Thorin/Dwalin led army can actually have ARCHERS?

Points wise, do they compare with the other men in the game? (Rohan Gondor etc)
