Warriors of Middle Earth is an expansion for War of the Ring from Ares Games. This expansion adds more depth and options to the quintessential Lord of the Rings game. The game adds the new Faction dice and Faction event cards that are designed to work in conjunction with the new factions added by Warriors of Middle Earth.
Cast aside the Ent event cards and add the Ent faction dice, faction cards and figures. The Ents are no longer a few event cards to be played from the event deck, now they are a playable faction in their own right and able to attack the shadow forces with all the ferocity that they have in the Lord of the Rings.
The Deadmen of Dunharrow will sweep aside all in their path when their faction enters Middle Earth. The Dead Men of Dunharrow have no stacking limit and any normal battle from the dead men cannot be responded to by the shadow player!
The Eagles can come to the rescue of any free people army within four regions making them very powerful and mobile.
The shadow player gets more factions too, the corsairs of Umbar can carry armies vast distances across the seas when they are in play. The Hillmen of Dunland can move fast through Middle Earth unless they are slowed by non-Hillmen armies and can bolster the armies of the shadow and finally the broods of Shelob, spiders, the creatures that many fear and with good reason.
Each faction has special events that bring them into play, and each is out of the game for good when all of their units have been eliminated so guard and use them well!
