Great design. Very efficent as a building indeed, and the idea of it being both a recruiting building and a resource building, but not at the same time, is very well-thought and fits the concept well.
A pity you don't go with movie Beorn, his design was very characteristic and unique, while now he kinda looks like Hwaldar/dunlending, at least to me, but this is your decision. However, not sure how many players will keep him in his human form ;D
Awesome! You really did a number on the guy. Pity for the mace, I suppose they gave it to him to tie him to the Witch King, being Khamul the second in command, but whatever, we always knew him with a sword. Whatever, I like him!
I don't know what you see, but in the image you posted I see sharp points and triangular shapes, typical of LOTR villains, while I see none here.
Yes, I did read that part.
If you say so. That was just an opinion. They might turn out very well in the final game, I wouldn't know. But, isn't that mace kinda too round?
The model is quite nice, but not to sound offensive or ungrateful for all your work, but doesn't the model kinda look out of place among all others? I mean it's very smooth, and kind of cartoonish-looking, while in particular the Defiler's old model looked kind of better, or at least more fitting in the contest.
Same goes for the Great Goblin. The models are really amazing, but the coloring, and the overall look of both these two characters look kinda unfitting, a bit too bright and smooth/round. If they were just a bit darker and less smooth, it'd be perfect..at least that's my opinion.
Keep up the great work! (btw, the warg is awesome!)
Welcome, could very well be. I guess we'll have to wait and see.
Now this is just the epic update I was expecting. The Misty Mountains are now a faction faithful to both book and movies, and looks really like a force to be rockoned with.
Every hero, every unit is well-designed and perfect to fill its role, though I'm kinda disappointed the Great Goblin has no 'Down to Goblintown' song ability to paralyze enemies and boost morale XD
As for Ringhero Smaug, I would suggest him to be enveloped in an aura that deals fire damage, since the book speaks about his 'Inner fire', and would also suggest him to be able to attack with Dragon Fire while flying, kind of like the Dragon Strike, as he did so in the movie. I would also say he steals resources when attacking enemy buildings, even if the Misty Mountains already have plenty resource-taking abilities.
I also kind of really like the 'I am King Under the Mountain' ability suggested by KingdomofErebor, as it does explain his extremely aggressive behavior towards those who touch his treasure. Also, as a visual effect, since he looks red and golden in the movies, once he obtains the ring he could become completely golden, and perhaps have a fiery glow about him.
Anyways, an epic work, as per usual.
