Thanks for the support! And fear not, I'm working on it with great care for lore and detail, and also working with our soundtrack composer Diogolindir for some awesome music created especially for this mod.

No, completely different mod and vision, (though it used an early unfinished version of the WotS map as base for its own expanded map).

I apologize for the recent lack of updates here, I find it's better use of my time to actually work on the mod. I had been fighting some health issues that kept me behind, but I'm slowly progressing on the mod, and I've finished and changed and perfected a lot of stuff. Good news is, I've entered the coding/scripting phase.

It's not currently playable, but it will be as soon as I finish it.

That's a different mod, and as far as I know, dead.

I'm still working on this, slowly but steadily, with the patience of the Ents.

Nah, Morgoth is in the Void now. I just didn't bother to fix them because the previews are outdated anyway, I will have to take new screens.

Ellin @ 33 new Regions! - Faction Placement

Yeah they will be two unplayable factions, scripted to spawn at the right time.

The game might not like them, but we sure do! I'll do my best to balance it.

It's going well, I've been advancing steadily, but there's still a lot of work to be done. I'll post updates when the time is come.

Yes, there will be winged dragons, and yes, Glaurung and all the Urulóki will use fire.

The Eldar models? Still no, though I might include a different version of them for the Vanyar in the Host of Valinor.

It goes well. I prefer to work rather than spend time on previews and updates.

This has been answered before. Angband will be very powerful, and it will have orcs, trolls, wolf-riders (no wargs back then), werewolves (large monstrous wolves), vampires (giant bats), dragons and Balrogs. Sauron, Gothmog, and Glaurung will be generals, Morgoth will only appear (and disappear afterwards) as a one-man unit when Angband is sieged. Morgoth will also be the "Pope", like Sauron in TATW.

Apart from Angband, the Easterlings of Ulfang will also be "bad guys". And not all the good guys will be "good guys". Doriath will have bad relations with the Noldor factions (except Nargohrond), the Naugrim of Nogrod will have bad relations with the Elves in general, and the Sons of Fëanor will declare war on whoever happens to find a Silmaril.

If all goes well I'm hoping for late winter, but there is still a lot of work to be done, so perhaps some time in spring would be more realistic.

Happy new year everyone! As a treat, I have added screenshots of many factions in the images, as a small preview of what I've been working on for the last months. Some of them are still WIP. Happy holidays!

Some of them have silver hair, yes. Most have dark hair.

No custom battle maps (in custom battles), but there will be custom battle maps for appropriately used TATW custom settlements (in the campaign).

Well, I'm not making any promises. There's still a lot of work to be done, but I'll do my best to release it as soon as possible.

Thanks for the support! There is no reason whatsoever to think that the Naugrim developed plate armour - on the contrary, the famous "linked mail of the dwarves" filled the armouries of Menegroth, and they still had mail armour much later in the Battle of Five Armies. As for resisting dragonfire, that is specifically attributed to their masked helmets.
