As the new release is getting close, containing new faction, Angmar, i wanted to present some other works a had on other factions as well. The next version will bring more balance to the gameplay, new build up system, new and reworked models and textures, and a new faction of course. Also, some of the heroes that are both in the mod and in the "Hobbit" movie got their models reworked.

So here's some of the goodies you will see in the new version












And of course - Angmar


*Lots of you will say "Is this all you have done in the past year!?", well i would like for all of you to consider how difficult and time consuming modding is, and the amount of free time i had in this year, and stop complaining(if you are planning) :D)

*credits for Aragorn, Gandalf, Gloin, Noldor Warriors, Nazgul, Witch-King, Gothmog, Saruman model goes to RadagastTheMusical

Its a great effort MorguLord , especially recovering from that data loss and making so much effort into it . Shame on anyone who would say , " Is this all you have done in the past year? "

Rohan will still be a part of Gondor, but with some changes. But in the future, Rohan will also be a faction of its own

hi all, this mod has the potential to be the greatest, i really like the way you set up the isengard faction, it truly immerses you within that world. Some examples would be, working towards creating the deadliest army: the uruk-hai :) and once you have them you get a sense of accomplishement, love it. However there are some bugs, the biggest one: you cant load any savegames... i tried several times it always crashes to desktop, am i doing something wrong?

by the way to install the game you need to CREATE a folder, call it BOTTA then put it in C:// then you go to your usual rise of the witch king short cut, right click, properties then go on target and add at the end to" -mod C://BOTTA" without the quotes

now all you need to do is double click that shortcut et voila
