The Hobbit, I loved the book and was horrified Peter Jackson would ruin it; but alas my fears were unfounded and after the long wait I sat down to enjoy a good movie. I really enjoyed the film and was delighted when I was given the 'Escape from Goblin Town' starter set for christmas. Many years ago I was drawn into the hobby by the Lord of the Rings and looked forward to reigniting my passion for the Strategy Battle Game. It really is a great game system I would recommend to anyone though I must admit it has been years since I have had chance to play.
Moving on the models in the set are very nice and surprisingly well detailed for plastic. They really do capture the spirit of The Hobbit and look great on the tabletop. The scenery is a nice addition that is unfortunately absent from the fantasy and 40k starter sets. The first model I opted to paint was Gandalf for little other reason than I had recently bought some grey paint.
