Like if this guide is helpful

This is a simple and straight forward listing of the De Agostini Battle Games in Middle Earth Series. This 91 piece partwork ended a while ago now and when originally released in the UK offered subscribers a hobby booklet and a Games Workshop 28mm metal figure or plastic figure sprue every two weeks. The booklet was like a miniature White Dwarf magazine crammed with painting guides, wargaming scenarios, terrain building ideas and tactical info on playing the LOTR skirmish game (ie. not the later War of the Ring rules). This listing will be of interest to collectors wishing to identify missing numbers in their collection as well as to those looking to pick up ad hoc individual editions. My interest is both personal and professional as I collect these figures & magazines and also sell them in my eBay store: Drum & Flag

"One Ring to rule them all, One Ring to find them, One Ring to bring them all, And in the darkness bind them.
