Many years after Sauron was cast from Middle-earth at the Battle of the Last Alliance, he returned in the form of the Necromancer to corrupt the realm once more. Building the fortress of Dol Guldur, his influence spread throughout the Greenwood and slowly began to twist it into a dark and cursed place – until the arrival of Gandalf and the White Council shone a light on Sauron’s ambition.
This expansion for the Middle-earth Strategy Battle Game delves into the history of Sauron the Necromancer, charting his return from the year of his arrival to the climactic battle against the White Council. It features background on the lands around Dol Guldur, including the Greenwood and its corruption into Mirkwood, along with new narrative play Scenarios and a campaign system to link them together. It also includes painting guides, modelling tips, and four new Legendary Legions representing iconic forces from both sides of the conflict.
