I have recently gotten back into painting miniatures and while I did it for a board game (Mansions of Madness), I have been looking for another game to play that has high quality miniatures and a theme that I really like.
Many years ago, I bought and painted the Mines of Moria starter and was about to play it when I discovered that my brother was not nearly as interested in it as I and I never got a game in. Since then I have discovered there are many games you can play solo if you have the desire which brings me to my question.
Could you play this game (LOTR and/or The Hobbit) solo and have a good time?
I love painting minis, love Lord of the Rings, and would love to learn to make terrain for this game but am unsure if it is worth the time and financial investment to do so. I know the game is designed for two players but since I want to play scenarios and do so in the spirit of the books, I think it could still be a blast to play but I'd like to hear from those who currently play before making that decision.
Even if I don't play LOTR/The Hobbit minis, I do plan on making some dioramas and enjoying the miniatures that way so don't be afraid to tell me the truth even if it seems like it might scare a new player away
