Thinking about adding some Gundabad units?
You know, it just dawned on me. The one faction missing is Misty Mountains. I mean, we have High Elves, Wood Elves, Dwarves (with 3 sub-factions), Gondor, Rohan, Mordor, Isengard, Angmar but there has been no word on Misty Mountains. Not surprising, as they've stated before that said faction has been the most difficult to develop
I wonder, since the team is working on the new spellbook system, they'll reveal Misty Mountains last
You plan on giving these units, such as your Movie based Dale units to DAC or MOS?
Well they have to fill in the blanks the movies left behind for various reasons ;)
Any way some of the more campaign focused mods like Divide and Conquer or MOS can get these Dale units? I've never played as Dale because of it's generic medieval look and been hoping for an update to make them look more like the films. Now all that's left is for the mountain orc faction to get the Gundabad Orcs from the movies and we're set
How goes the modding?
I dunno, I never felt the Conquistador style helmets fit Gondor's aesthetic well...
It was the sweet fx stuff. I just didn't install it after retrying everything. Looking forward to the next version. The good campaign map goes into extreme slowdown when the Isengard mission is set though
Odd, didn't realize that Java wasn't installed. Anyways. now it gives me an error message that says "Please you have Direct X 9.0 or higher. Also verify that your video card meets the minimum requirements" (the vanilla game worked fine)
Yeah, when part 2 finishes, I leave it on the checkmark of "Launch Game" but nothing. I click on the shortcut and nothing, just that windows doesn't have an app to run it
Shortcut doesn't work either
It won't launch. I click the batch file and it says it can't find the files to launch. Odd, since the files were installed into the Battle for Middle-earth folder...
Yeah, but I'd like them as permanent additions, not just temporary summon
They used those models because they liked how they fit with the esthetic. You're not gonna see them add stuff like Agandaur, for example
So, about Angmar. I absolutely love the esthetic of the faction. Like that you can play a bit more defensively in comparison to other evil factions. But I feel there's a bit of a missed opportunity in not having as many orcs and beasts be readily available aside for the orc rabbles, wolves and the spells.
I get that Angmar would have the men they turned to their side as the elites. But considering that they had the the Ettenmoors, Mount Gram and Gundabad under their realm (or at least at close proximity) We should be able to recruit trolls and slightly stronger orcs. Maybe not have the Gundabad orcs be exactly like how they're gonna show up in the Misty Mountains, but still
Finally had some time to play as the new Angmar and Imladris factions. Predictably though I went back to the newly updated dwarves as they're my favorites. Still, great updates as always, guys. So what are the plans for the future?
Also, on Path of the Edain Is there any way for you to play as your other created heroes? I start the mission but the others are AI? Do I have to set up a starting position for each team?

Would you add visual upgrades to the armor upgrades? I like it when the militia gets armor that looks like a light version of the main military's armor
Ah, RJ ROTWK, good times, looking forward to see how much you update it
Love to see the Dwarves updated. Any word on Mirkwood, Misty Mountains, or Dale getting similar treatment?
Much better than his older model
I follow the steps and it doesn't work
They kind of avoided showing them off because the way these men of the east are described they are obviously meant to be analogues of the Middle-eastern people during medieval times. Kinda awkward in today's more PC times
Hmm, on the one hand, I was sort of hoping this unit would wield a two handed sword or axe, on the other hand, the model looks legitimately badass. So are they all blonde or will you guys add a few brunettes among their ranks?
Loving the Erebor faction. Odd selection of heroes, though, are those members of Thorin's company supposed to be characters that survived the Battle of the Five Armies and/or didn't participate in the expedition to Moria?
There's a balance issue. Dwarf battalions are small, so a single volley of arrows from the much more numerous goblins can kill one battalion. Either make dwarf battalions bigger or make them tougher in general
Don't ask me how, but I got it to work. No idea why, just re-extracted it and it works -shrugs- Imma enjoy your fun mod now, congrats on your place in the top 100 vote
