Written by Jay Clare (The Lord of the Rings: Quest to Mount Doom), Scouring the Shire is an 80-page hardcover rules supplement and scenario guide inspired by the chapter of the same name in J.R.R. Tolkein’s The Return of the King. The book centers on small-scale skirmishes between the Hobbits of the Shire and the “ruffians” who serve the discredited wizard Saruman.
Scouring the Shire includes a history of the Hobbits and the Shire, rules for fielding all-Hobbit armies, complete Legendary Legion army lists for the Defenders of the Shire and The Chief’s Ruffians, 16 narrative play scenarios that describe the entire campaign, and 3 additional narrative scenarios that recreate “historical” battles in the Shire. MSRP is $35.00.
This is an updated and revised version of the Scouring of the Shire book Games Workshop published in 2004.
