Goats and Mountaintops
It’s a good day for fans of The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey™ Strategy Battle Game with two new kits and the the return of a classic battlefield centrepiece.
First up, the much anticipated Iron Hills Goat Riders.
In case you were wondering what your Dwarf army was missing, these guys are the answer – goat cavalry. As sturdy and at home on the mountain slopes as their iron-armoured riders, these goats might not be quite as fast as horses, but hit a fair bit harder and, combined with the natural fighting skill and strength of the rider, they make a formidable pair.
Also available for pre-order are Iron Hill Dwarves with spears to accompany their mounted kin or lend support to a Dwarven shieldwall.
Finally, we have the return of of The Ruined Watchtower of Amon Sûl at Weathertop. This mountaintop watchtower has been the scene of many iconic moments in Middle-earth™ lore. It makes a great addition to any terrain collection, as it can easily be used to represent any abandoned watchtower of ancient Arnor or Gondor.
