From what I've seen of it it looked ok. It's a skirmish based game using
rules very similar to GW's Lord of the Rings rules, which work well for
skirmish games, but not for mass battles (causing most people around
where I go to game to dismiss the LotR system straight away, as they
wanted to recreate the battles from the books/films). If you do find you
become interested please could you post back at some time to let me know
which miniatures you use. So far I like the look of the Foundry minis.

I found a lot of discussion threads re. LotOW and figures on TMP (The
Miniatures Page). Look for the message boards, 19th century, general
discussion.

Erik before you go off and buy a bunch of mini's for who knows how much
money, go to the toy store and get a bag of cheap Cowboys & Indians it may
cost you $2 for 20 or so figures. They are soft plastic so if you want to
paint them you will need to coat them with white glue first. The other
players will most likely understand that you wish to try the game out before
spending boatloads of money on metal mini's.

Good idea. However, the minis were mostly for the RPG campaign, and
the WOW would have been a secondary use for them.
