I wanted to post this tip. There are many new hobbyists out there that don't know what to do when a weapon breaks off. Many will apply glue and deal, some will replace the entire weapon arm, some may even make a new weapon with card, some sculpting... there are many ways to fix this problem. I am going to show you the repair method. This allows you to use the original weapons and is very easy. This is also great if you want to learn how to swap weapons as it uses the same techniques.
step 1, discover your model has a weapon broken.
Boo hoo.. my new model. What do I do?
Step 2 drill hole in blade/weapon.
above you can see. use a pin vice and small drill bit (look on hobby sites) hand spin a hole the diameter of a pin or paperclip. only enough to get a bite on it.
Step 3. Glue the blade onto a length of paper clip or pin or rod whatever you are using. Then drill a hole in the weapon hand with the same bit.
Cool huh? So the blade holds very well on this rod and the hole in the hand is deep enough to seat it. Just be careful that you don't go crooked and break the hand.
Step 4. cut the blade rod down to the size you need to fit into the weapon hand.
Step 5... well you can see. This is a dry fit, that means I did not glue it yet. Once you have a dry fit, you are not in a rush to glue it, you can paint the model (or repair paint if it is prepainted) or convert, sculpt whatever it is you are doing. Then when it is a good time, glue the blade on. perfect. Thanks for reading - Sithious.

If you don't play table top battle games then this won't mean much to you. If you do, well you know that it helps to have move trays for games. With Games-Workshop's War of the Ring, it is a needed item. The game didn't take off well, it is a good game, but needed a lot of tweaking and of course GW stopped after a year or so and didn't fix it and went back to SBG after a little bit. But if you need to make some trays, here is a quick way.
Cut a rectangle piece of 1/4" foam core board. You can get a full sheet for about $2-3 at any of the major craft stores. Cut the piece with an exacto blade or hobby knife that is sharp (new blade) so you do not tear the foam which will happen with a dull blade. The size should be the size you want for the models you are using. In War of the Ring case, you use the measurements provided in the rule books. Cavalry trays, Infantry Trays, Tray for the 9 wraiths as a unit, and a tray for siege bows. So you really can make all the trays you need this way and if they do get damaged (highly unlikely) then they are cheap to replace.
Trace your base size as many times as needed in the locations you want to place the models on the tray. In this case I am making a infantry tray with a 1" base. I will place 8 of these circles on the base as 2 rows of 4.
Cut through the top card layer. !!!ONLY!!! cut through the first card layer on the initial cut, this will make it easy to only cut the foam in the next step so you don't cut through. It is not the end of the world if you do cut throughout too.
Now you should be able to poke in through the foam and feel the resistance when you hit the card on bottom. Reach that trace that circle again with the knife only cutting the foam layer.
Poke your finger in there, don't be afraid you won't hurt it. And dig out that little circle. You are separating the foam from the card on the other side. Some Foam board is glued better than others, trust me you will know when you do an easy one then a hard one, but neither is difficult, just one is cake.
You can start basing it right here if you want. It can be used just like this also. If you want to give it a little more strength and support to last many battles then you can wrap the edges and bottom in card stock. Card stock can be a back of a notebook, or a cereal box or other packaging in card.
Base it with PVA white glue (or elmers Glue all is cheap and works fine) and sand and flock. Paint if to suit.
Here are examples;
I started collecting LOTR models when Two Towers came out in film. I just didn't know they were making them. I then bought the Fellowship models. It was not for many months before I learned about White Dwarf, I was not a kid either, so GW must not have advertised itself very well since I had never heard of them at all until the year 2000 yet I had been collecting models for 12 years by that time. Think about that GW, you should revisit your advertisement policy cause you suck at it.
Here I have compile all the relevant articles in a time line of White Dwarfs. This timeline make some things so very clear that if GW needed to know why sales dropped, it is all in these words right here.
If you have issues I am missing and want to send me the info I need to add it, I will put you in as contributor and add your issues and whatever rants you have about that issue if any.

34 pages of War of the Rings stuff (more than any release ever!)
You don't have enough models. We will all hang out heads and say, well forget that then.
One sample army they show is 20 boxed sets of plastic warriors, and 30 blisters,
and that is just Gondor. So… You are saying I need $1000 to play this game?
The armys are nice to see in this epic scale (though un realistic to attain for a fun game)
There is also a army painting article 8 pages from prime to finish.
War of the ring terrain article 6 pages not teaching you anything, just showing off.
This issue has 48 pages devoted to LOTR plus the release pages and not a single page is worth reading.
Lore of War - War of the Ring Tactics
Rules for all the models released last month for SBG.
When War of the Ring came ou, 24 models in a set cost $25.
This is when GW stopped publishing Prices in the White Dwarf mag.
This is also when those boxed sets jumped up to $30, then $33 a box, shorty after to $35
Also no new supplement would be released for a long time. You would need the magazine
or a pdf from GW to use the new rules in SBG games. SBG was still the better game.
You would need ORB, 3 journey books, LOME, and 6-8 surcebooks, plus PDFs to play
or you could play War of the Ring and buy $1000 worth of models.
Thus GW drove a huge nail in th LOTR coffin but didn't know it yet.
Galadhrim released with much applause
Full article on the Elves, show War of the Ring armies
, if you just buy 6 boxes and 9 blisters you are half way there

SBG rules for models released previous month
it is now 2014 and I have not bought an issue since 2010. Why?
GW, Do you wonder why?
1 - Creative articles stopped, Scenery, conversions, new characters, scenarios
2 - you mixed LOTR in with the mag and diluted it, also upsetting the other cores.
3 - you spread the profiles over too many books and lost new players, we need new player growth
cutting off a new players ability to play the game hurt big.
4 - You dropped a new system that would be cool, but made our armies seem tiny
we didn't want to play the game if we couldn't play it right.
So many people stayed with SBG. You did this to yourself.
5 - you made us pay the price for War of the Rings failure
you cut all support, stopped all articles, stopped making supplements.
and stopped making releases… what did we do to you?
We were happily playing SBG and you screwed us because we didn't want your
mega battle game, the armies were too big for players to make
and even harder to transport to a game center to use, if you found another
person with an army that size of course. Seriously, what did you expect us to do?
Stop the 5 issues and the vissions now. It is faiure.
invest in creative side again.
in any game system, once a army is built you can play and play
so you want me to buymore? Give me a better reason, not a new army
not a new book… don't throw my favorite models rules away…
instead, show me how to convert new units, show me ways tomake new heroes,
show me how to make cool scenery so I want to showcase mymodels
show me how to sculpt…
Then give me new models and new rules.
People want the most for their money, if you don't give it to them
and still charge more than double your old prices, then the value is not there
and then we don't want to buy it. Give value to your kits again.
$25 for 24 plastic warriors was Ok with you for 10 years and then suddenly
you needed $35 for 12 plastic warriors from the same mold.
What are we paying for? Is there a new Yacht you need, did one
of your kids need to go to Harvard? I just don't see what the huge
hike was for on old kits. I also don't know why ou continue to punish SBG
players now with the hobbit stuff, youcan see your own releases in the
timeline above. You used to release and support almost every month
you gave content, you gave scenarios, you showcased paint schemes
you kept us interested.
now you don't care at all. Again, What did we do?
Is it because we didn't buy War of the Ring?
Sorry, I apologise. I did buy WotR.
Is it because I didn't buy 6 mumaks and 25 boxes of warriors of harad
and 35 blisters of elites just to play Blood in the Sands campaign?
I tried, I got 3 mumaks, give me a break will ya?
Stop punishing us GW, WotR was not our fault.
And there are very few people who can buy the armies you showcase for
that game system.
If you thought 15-18 year olds were going to walk into a GW store and
drop $1000-2000 on models and books, well you were smoking something
in those meetings. Kids have $25 pocket cash a week, if you want a taste
of that allowance money or the parents concent money, then you need
to make products that fit that price range, and you need to make
games that with a few purchases a new player can get into.
Please consider it.
