[Upcoming] LotR:War of the Ring

Anyone interested in the Games Workshop release the War of the Ring coming on April 4th?

Its a new battle game using the 25mm Lord of the Rings minis and is said to be similar to Warmaster and WHFB. A copy of the quick start rules can be found here.
It comes in the form of a 328 page full colour book with all the needed information for all the factions/units available.

Main differences from the LotR Strategy Battle Game (LotR:SBG) are that its meant to be a much larger scale battle system than the older skirmish based rules so they have gone to grouping individual units on movement trays (8 infantry/2 calvalry units form a company which are then grouuped into formations), the addition of a charge phase (with a D6+movement value charge), Unit Facings, etc.

Not sure how popular the LotR:SBG is with people, but i really enjoyed the rules and played many games, most of which were too large to be easily played with and took too long, so i am really looking forward to this new iteration. So anyone else here play/played the LotR:SBG? anyone going to get the new War of the Ring book?

    I've never played the current LoTR game, but I must say that War of the Ring has piqued my interest. I may be looking into it.
