I think they might take the year off this year. It seems to operate on a 3 year cycle of 40k, Fantasy, Year Off. I mean look at things since Armageddon

2000: Armageddon
2001: Albion
2002: Year Off

2003: Eye of Terror
2004: Storm of Chaos
2005: Year Off

2006: Medusa
2007: Nemesis
2008: Year Off?

I thought 2005 was The war of the Ring campaing?

If anything it will be a LoTR one I reckon.

Has it really been 4 years since the eye of terror?

Good lord - it barely feels like yesterday...

I think fishy has made a good guess of it. Seems to fit the pattern. can anyone remember when they started advertising the campaigns in white dwarf?

I don't recall there being an actual website with results sent in by players on that one. Seemed like more of a worldwide "battle tour" than an actual campaign from my point of view. I don't exactly follow the goings on of the LoTR game too closely, so I could be wrong, but that's how i remember things

Here's what goes on in Fish's head -

"Ok, 40k this year..., Fantasy the next... whats that little smudge next to 2008? Year off?"\

GW -

"40k - 2006, Fantasy - 2007, LotR - 2008"

Everyone else -

"Ok, 40k is 2006, with fantasy 2007.... Why cant they just drop LotR by the end of 2007!?"

Hehe, funny stuff. ;D

As a clarification, the reason I don't think that the LoTR events count as a fully fledged "worldwide campaign" in my mind, or perhaps GWs, is that to my knowledge none of these events have had anything like the battle reporting system the 40k and Fantasy events have. Of course, like I said, I don't follow the LoTR stuff too closely, so if anyone has more information about how these events went down, I'd be happy to hear it so I may make a more informed guess at the scheduling of these things

Lord of the Rings has campaigns?!

My god, that thing just never dies....



I would be sooooo happy if Lord of the Rings disappeared and was replaced with the mainstream GW revival of....oh...let's just say any one of Mordheim, BFG, Necromunda, Bloodbowl, Inquisitor or Man O' War.

Sorry, it's not that I hate the Lord of the Ring game, but I just find it mediocre as opposed to many of the truly great systems GW put on deathrow in Specialist Games.....

Could be something from the rumoured Codex Dropzone.

Failed crusade because Abaddon's High Sorcerer navigator accidentally teleported the Planet Killer to the 21st Century. Leaving his entire army to invade Cadia.
