Found a new source for the 3D miniatures!

They look pretty cool. They are fully licensed. Not sure how well they fit on the boards yet.

Mine will be in shortly. Can't wait!

Made a deal with the company and can get them a lot cheaper than retail for us geekers.

These are from 4D Cityscapes.
I made a deal with them for us since everyone was looking for miniatures for their games.

They agreed to provide me with an exclusive deal for BGG members.

Let me know if you want one. The Hobbit ones are available now.
The LOTR ones are pre-order. Each goes for $65 plus shipping.
MSRP is something like $80 depending on where you go for them.

So is this for the strongholds and the mountains?
And if so, on which size board would they fit on? The *ahum* standard sized 2ndEd board or the larger CE/AE gameboard?

It is for everything- Boards, miniatures, mountains, etc.
There are two separate editions-
One for the Hobbit
One for the Lord of the Rings

These are complete, authentically-licensed collectible items that just happen to serve a dual purpose for us War of the Ring owners.

I have not received mine yet. I have the AE on order and SE on hand.
As soon as I have mine I will take pictures of them with the SE edition and share my opinion with everyone.

4D Cityscapes has been great to work with and hopefully this will fill the void for those of us wanting readily accessible miniatures without having to wait months or literally years- and at a decent price!

Hope to have more answers and photos for everyone shortly!

He's talking about these...

While they look nice. There is absolutely no way to tell based on the pictures if they will look good on the War of the Ring board.

That is correct!

I hope to have my copy of the Hobbit in shortly so I can make a judgement on them.

I should get it in shortly.

Stay posted...

I have their Game of Throne Westeros map puzzle and thought the building minis were great and the puzzle was fun to make. Knowing that they are doing a Lord of the Rings version sounds great. Do you know the release date?

The Hobbit is available now.
The LOTR version is for presale and will be available in mid-November.

Talked with 4D and I should be getting both sets in this week.
Cross your fingers!

Can't wait to see them.

Really looking forward to seeing these on someone's board. The others I have seen are beautiful but too pricey for me. Hoping these will do the trick without breaking the bank.

So what material are these made from? Some kind of painted foam or molded plastic?

I think they look decent, and if the scale is right they are certainly a good buy. I personally have no need for them as I am more than happy with my set of strongholds from sickdave (and am anxiously awaiting his mountain sculpts)
