Don't know if this has been asked or not- I just received my Anniversary copy.

The companion book includes LOME and WOME strategy guides too along with pictures of the painted minis (a preview of the painted expansions). My question is, what will they do when the 3rd expansion on Siege Engines comes out?...Reprint the Companion book to include articles on the 3rd expansion? Seems odd that they included the expansion guide with the first two expansion but without the 3rd yet out.

Have they definitely announced a third expansion? Last I heard it was just a possibility. Honestly, I hardly ever want to play with the expansions, and if I do it is usually only Lords. But that said when they release the limited painted Warriors I will be ordering it.

No third expansion has been announced but Ares has expressed the wish to have the missing part from "Twilight of the Third Age" (the Siege Engines) incorporated into the Second Edition.

Limited (painted) edition of LoMe already exists.

Ares has stated that they would like to offer a Limited (painted) version of WoMe. Now, as the AR is shipping, they might be able to look into it.

Off-topic, but I am surprised to find references to LoME and WoME, why those rules are not in the rulebook ...

While I cannot comment on why some parts made the cut and other parts didn't, here is Roberto's sentence from the introduction (page 5):

"The components of the expansion are not a part of the Anniversary Release, but we included these chapters to make the Companion as comprehensive as possible."
