The Lumineth Realm-lords are the uber-magic Elves, so when you have a hero the very serene looking Alarith Stonemage is the way to go. A very different type of miniature we are used to seeing, this is sure to be a hit come Golden Demon time!
They may be sparkly, but they have some heavy hitting power and that comes in the form of an Alarith, Spirit of the Mountain - a hammer-wielding sparkly cow with some amazing modelling potential. This is a combi-kit, so you can also make the named character Avelenor, the Stoneheart King. While we're talking hammers and the word "big", combine hammer and big hats and you have the Alarith Stoneguard - a very different Elven dynamic, but none the less very cool models. If you want your run-of-the-mill infantry fast attack, you can't go passed the Vanari Dawnriders, probably some of the nicest cavalry models since the old Dark Elves Black Riders.
Fans of Warhammer 40K, do not worry, you have not been left in the cold - coming some time next year but on pre-order now are the next in the series of Bandai Space Marine action figure that comes in Imperial Fists or Salamanders flavours. These are available to order for one week only!
In books there's the new 40K Ork Brutal Kunnin and it's a White Dwarf week...
For the Middle Earth fans, there's also the very nice new Forge World resin Rangers. These poses are becoming more statuesque every month, and really are a treat!
