The youngest son recieved Island of Blood for Christmas and i must admit it is full of lovely minatures and the new rules seem pretty good as well. It is worth a look if you are thinking about getting in to wargaming or adding to you exsiting High Elves or Skaven armies.
I recieved War of the Ring rule book and this is a mighty tomb indeed! It is everything you would expect from GW with the added bounus that the rules read pretty well and are suitable for other historical periods of wargaming up to late medieval battles. (IMO) It is expensive but i feel it is worth it as the army lists are included so no additional books to buy.
