I have the all metal mounted version of Faramir on horse with shield, his rules in my LOTR SBG book does not give him that option. Were two profiles ever released? Much thanks :D

You just add on his horse heavy armor and shield points wise and that's him. No alternative.

The Captain of Ithilien model/profile was released a few years ago (2007ish I think) to turn Faramir into the 3 attack, 3 wound hero a lot of people wanted. When then 5 new sourcebooks came out in Jan 2012, that profile was dropped for some reason and so isn't available in the game any more. It's a shame as the stat boosts along with an armoured horse and 12" Standfast/banner for Gondor troops made him a brilliant profile. It's certainly strange given that Heroes like Elrond, Boromir, Aragorn etc. all had multiple versions included in the sourcebooks.

You can use that model as the normal Faramir if you wish though.

technically, I think not. He came out before the books and was not included. Still, you can ask your opponent if is fine with it. Maybe showing him a scan of the profile, so he knows you aren't making him up. Personally, as long as I know what are the rules and the price of a model, I usually have no problem.

When I brought in battle models unknown to my friends, I always had their profile at hands.

You can't use him in tournaments as he's no longer part of the game, much like Golfimbul his profile isn't in either the LOTR sourcebooks or Hobbit books. However, there's nothing to stop you using him in friendly games with your opponent's consent, he certainly wasn't an overpowered or broken profile (much like Golfimbul) and I genuinely don't know why these two didn't make it into the sourcebooks (there may be others). A lot of gamers in the GBHL have actually expressed an interest in bringing him back as a 'GBHL sanctioned' profile for use in those events, it hasn't happened as of yet but who knows what the future holds?

Very interesting! Me and some friends are starting a campaign tournament and I may play Gondor. So this would be a super awesome profile to have.

Wow ok, that would be great if I could get a hold of the rules for him (the banned one that is) I might just use it. Thanks for all the replies :D

Can you help me too?

On a different note, is there any problem in posting banned profiles? As banned, they are no longer part of the game, they are not even in the sourcebooks so there isn't any copyright to break

That's not how copyright works. They might not be in the game anymore but they're still covered so we don't want to see them on the site.

That said, the profile's relatively easy to find online so it's out there if you want it.

Thank you, I'm not familiar with copyrights, it's not my field of work.

I just found it, though.
I can say he's 2 times the prices of Faramir with bow, comes with armored horse and shield, no lance. one less fate and fight than Imrahil. 12" stand fast and banner for Citadel Guards, Knights, Warriors and Ranger.

A very good leader. He may not be as skilled as Boromir, but is cheaper and has a way better commanding presence.

A bit late to the thread but I'm confused as to GE different profiles for Faramir. All I can find is the Captain of Ithilien, are there different profiles for lets say the model of Faramir in ranger gear?
