As you are probably already aware, there is an official Middle-earth D&D 5e setting being released this Summer by Cubicle 7. This will no doubt create strong demand for figures for people's campaigns. I've noticed there are numerous figures already in production that will adapt well. The orcs in KS3, the Mountain Troll in KS2 (a tad Jackson-esque, but perfect for a big Olog-Hai or the like: MORE OF THESE!), the ogres in KS3 (perfect Tom, Bert, and William-MORE PLEASE!), the Balor from KS2 makes a passable Balrog (assuming Balrogs have wings), many dwarves, etc. This is only natural, as D&D is substantially derivative of Tolkien and Reaper's choice of subject matter is substantially derivative of D&D. Now obviously, lacking a license, nothing would be official, and trademarked names would be verboten. However, with this firmly in mind, my question is this: a) which figures already in production do you think work best as Middle-earth characters, monsters, etc., and b) what would you like to see to fill out the traditional Middle-earth bestiary in any potential KS4 or LE KS, bearing in mind that as the actual number of different species of monsters will be more limited, a variety of weaponry, poses, armour, sexes, and the like will be important
I recently picked up a new (for me) rpg called Yggdrasil. It's a Norse Heroic fantasy by Cubicle 7. I'm curious as to whether or not anyone has actually heard of or even played it before. If you have played it what are your thoughts thus far? I haven't been able to sit down with a group and play it but here are what I think: -As with another game I've seen by Cubice 7 the artists here need a serious raise. The artwork is beautifully gritty and exceptionally well done. -The mechanics are simple and have an interesting twist however. You see after you decide a character concept you roll runes for your characters fate and these can come in to play for or against you at the player's and GM's discretion.
