Rider of Rohan Here, current leader of the Horse Lords Mod for BFME 2.
This is literally the fourth image and some people still cant read the descriptions...
There will be a dedicated update on that soon.
He starts with his armor.
Right now the warg packs and warg riders are directly like their isengard counterparts. This is subject to change in the final release though.
Yea it will be.
That's basically Ring Wars, was done before as a map for bfme 2 and can probably be done when the factions are complete for AOTR on a seperate map. Highly unlikely to see one in the first release though.
No we can't change that because Vanilla uses the Gondorian skins.
This is fully upgraded with expansions.
But... this is the horse lords lol.
And we show updates all the time so I don't see how we aren't showing any actual progress.
Mathijs usually does the main model stuff and I finish it up and put it in game.
Well consider that this isn't their "leisure time" and that their job is to make sure the area is secure. The patrols aren't and shouldn't be considered a visual, they're a mechanic, they walk around the structure and constantly look for nearby targets to engage whilst remaining unattached to your main army. This makes them useful when near a structure that doesn't get them i.e. a eco structure, and when your army leaves the base, they defend it against immediate threats.
Patrols wear their un-upgraded attire, if you purchase the technology for an upgrade they can receive, they'll permanently receive said upgrade (i.e. buying Heavy armor grants the soldiers Heavy Armor permanently).
They are referred to as Dúnedain Soldiers/Archers/e.t.c. in-game.
I suggest you simply scroll through the gallery if you aren't up to date with what we have been doing.
It's literally the same thing with color variations...
Or just go into options and it will tell you what patch you are on in the bottom corner.
They'll be the new bodyguards for Saruman.
lol that might be improved on later.
Not anytime soon.
People tend to underestimate what you can actually do with an overpowered leadership that affects everything except buildings.
I draw the idea for the Rejuvenation from the scene where Gandalf restores King Theoden, plus I think Gandalf could use a support power instead of being almost completely offensive.
Same here, I'm just waiting for the big fight, I'm up to date with the manga so I can wait till lol.
Updated the Gondor faction plan to include Gandalf's powers and the Ring hero for the majority of the good factions
Gandalf will probably be lowered a bit tbh.
Saruman got bumped up to 4k since he starts at rank 5 now.
There is no release date.
We answered this below already.
In the future yes, for now there are a lot of renders for Erebor and some for Rohan in our image gallery.
For archers in the towers yea I can confirm that it works.
