Will you be updating the file to include the new Hobbit edition models and perhaps even weapon rules where included in rosters?

I have been working on the hobbit additions. Also there have been several FAQ updates that need added. As for the weapon special rules, they do not need added since they are dependent on the wysiwyg model and how it is armed. There are a couple models whose special rule grants use of weapons special rules which will be included though.

There are some issues with Hobbit that I am trying to figure out, such as the Hobbit indicates that models of the same name are replaced resulting in issues with Gandalf the Grey no longer having a horse or cart option. Hoping this gets a FAQ soon to help explain this and how it should be handled going forward. For now I think I plan to use 2 different Gandalf the Grey models indicating one as Hobbit version.

If I select Legolas or Gimli as allies it thinks they are part of fellowship and will not let me add followers - even though selected them from Elf and Dwarf lists and trying to add respective warriors - they are not independent heroes. - This seems to happen with lots of characters from any army list when you select them as allies.

Should the siege engine points cost not auto include the minimum crew?
Additional crew should be only crew you pay for?

Faramir has no Armoured Horse Option
Banner bearers can take shields now apparantly

Apologies to all. I had a system crash a while back during my initial Hobbit dev and lost everything. As such I was frustrated and tabled the project work. Due to work life and an extended Jury Duty assignment, I have had no time to work on this. I will however try to get some work done over the next couple weeks and see about releasing an updated version for everyone.

When you are using Gimli or Legolas, what list are you using them from? An ally list or the parent army list? If you are using them as an Ally(from whatever list they are an ally from) would define what units they may lead. So if you are allying them in from the Fellowship list, then they would not be able to lead warriors from your parent army as they are not from that army list.

Maybe I am misunderstanding the issue you have. Please elaborate further.

This was a design choice I had to make due to options and allowing models. The cost of the siege weapon with the min crew(once added) is correct for the entire siege weapon. If you are seeing otherwise, please provide specific examples so they can be researched.

According to my Kingdoms of Men, Faramir does have that option. Was this recently FAQd?
Banner Bearers can only take shields IF their profile allows for it. It does however appear that the prior rule of losing all existing weapons and gear no longer applies. This will take some additional reworking of the files to support.

Thanks for pointing this out.

If I build a Minas Tirith list and I add the following persons from their respective lists I cannot add followers.

Legolas, Thranduil and Celeborn from Lothlorien and Mirkwood
Elrond (both Versions), Arwen, Glorfindel, Cirdon and Erestor from Eregion and Rivendell
Gimli from Durin's Folk

However this only happens when they are allies not if they are the main roster.
Gimli has [df] after name not [fe] same with the other characters.

Siege engines is as you stated - I did't spot that the points dropped to allow you to crew to correct points - fixed.

Faramir has an option for Armoured Horse but didn't notice you need to select horse then edit horse to add armour - fixed

Thanks

For players. Please note that I have stopped support of the old format. The final version was 1.91 and was not replaced by the new release. The old version was managed under the directory LOTR_EN. The new format has been moved to the directory LOTR_SBG. This was a decision made to prevent breaking existing saved rosters due to the new format.


Finally, old rosters developed under the LOTR_EN structure will not work with the new SBG format.

If you have any issues, questions or even identify any bugs, please post them here so I can respond to them here.

Thanks,
sorry layman question but where can i actually download the latest file from?

I've looked on the main lone wolf website but can't find no lotr SBG files etc for army builder
