Ares Games announced the publication of a Limited Edition of Lords of Middle-earth, the first expansion for War of the Ring Second Edition. This special edition will feature a complete set of hand-painted miniatures and will be limited to 500 English copies, numbered and with a certificate of authenticity. It will be available starting from March 2013, with pre-orders starting in January 2013.
Lords of Middle-earth allow players to explore different possibilities in the game, and features new characters: Elrond, Galadriel, Gothmog and the powerful Balrog, as well as alternate versions of the Witch-king and the Mouth of Sauron (represented with specific miniatures and rules), as well new figures for Aragorn and Gandalf the White. The expansion also includes new special Action Dice – Elven Ring Keepers dice for the Free Peoples player and Lesser Minion dice for the Shadow player – and new versions of all the Companions of the Fellowship of the Ring, to play the optional “Council of Rivendell” rules.
In addition to the painted miniatures (compatible with the War of the Ring Collector’s Edition), the Lords of Middle-earth Limited Edition will include the Treebeard promotional mini-expansion (with painted miniature and card) and a numbered certificate of authenticity, packaged in an elegant, embossed and hot-foil stamped, box.
The cards, dice, rulebook and markers are the same ones included in the regular edition.
The Lords of Middle-earth Limited Edition will be sold directly by Ares Games, at the price of US$ 49.90, plus shipping costs.
Pre-orders will open in January 2013 on the Ares Games website
