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.

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
