-Sabertooth Games Inc. (a subsidiary of Games Workshop Group PLC) is proud to announce the Christmas 2003 release of The Lord of the Rings ® Tradeable Miniatures Game!
The game will feature expertly pre-painted three-dimensional versions of characters from New Line Cinema‘s The Lord of the Rings movie trilogy-such as Gandalf, Frodo, Aragorn, and Legolas. The fast, intuitive Combat-Hex rules system used by The Lord of the Rings Tradeable Miniatures Game allows players to recreate the action and adventure of the films-experiencing the exciting battles of Moria, Helm’s Deep, The Pelennor Fields, and much more-in just a half hour or less.
“The Lord of the Rings is the dominant fantasy universe in the world. The opportunity to produce a collectible and tradeable product utilizing Games Workshop’s expertise and experience is a dream come true,” says Robert Watts, CEO of Sabertooth Games, Inc. “This product is a perfect match for gaming fans, as well as fans of The Lord of the Rings universe.”
The Lord of the Rings Tradeable Miniatures Game will ship in time for the 2003 Christmas season, around the time of New Line Cinema’s release of The Return of the King. Samples of this exciting new product will be available to see during the Nuremberg Toy Fair in January, New York Toy Fair in February, and the GAMA ® Trade Show in March.
