    War of the Ring was actually a pretty solid system. The skirmish game was just too clunky though. Fun at very small scale as a skirmish game (I introduced my 14 year old brother-in-law to gaming with it), but as soon as heroes start showing up it gets ridiculous. Interested to see the mass battle rules come out for War of the Ring. I think the game could have been a success in the past if it had been released first, but the skirmish game put such a bad taste in everyone's mouth that it didn't really get a solid chance.

    I really wish they would re-release the 10mm box for Battle Of Five Armies. Im interested in the "mass battle rules" though,... I have War of teh Ring, but welcome any update that might streamline and balance it a bit more.
