Since its founding in the Third Age of Middle-earth by Eorl the Young, the kingdom of Rohan has seen more than its fair share of war. From the storied days of Helm Hammerhand to the legendary defence of his fortress during the War of the Ring, the Rohirrim have fought in many battles against their Dunlending rivals, marauding bands of Orcs, and later, the Uruk-hai of Saruman.
This expansion for the Middle-earth Strategy Battle Game primarily focuses on the ruthless assault on the kingdom of Rohan by Saruman’s Uruk-hai and other evil forces loyal to him during the War of the Ring. It features background on the kingdom’s founding, along with a wealth of new rules, Scenarios, profiles and a campaign that allows you to refight some of the greatest battles in Rohan’s history with your collection of Citadel and Forge World miniatures.
