Not only does it stop there though, but a brand new Dunedain faction shall be added with never-before seen units and structures and powers!
Also, a whole new campaign shall be added for the celebration of the Hobbit movie with unique units and strructures only to be seen within playing the campaign... Play through the story of Bilbo of the finding of the One Ring and the desolation of Smaug!
Finally, a whole new expansion mod shall be added taking you back to the 1st Age and going through the war of the Silmarils and the evil of Morgoth by introducing 4 brand new factions!

The Dunedain is a sub-expansion mod which shall be within the Lord of the Rings mod...It shall add a whole brand new faction along with a new CaH class which shall open the game into a greater experience where many people can enjoy its wonders...

The Hobbit

The Hobbit is also a sub-expansion which shall also be within the Lord of the Rings mod...It shall convert the entire campaign into the adventure of Bilbo Baggins with his finding of the One Ring and his adventuring from the Trollshaws to the Lonely Mountain...All of the new units, hero's and structures shall be exclusive to the campaign and will not be seen within the skirmish...Not only that, but a new Hobbit CaH class shall be added...Note that the other factions shall not be changed!

It's been a while since I last posted news, but now that I have some it seems only appropriate to say so. Indeed, both the Black Numenoreans' and the good factions' buildings are finished, bar animations and putting in game. You can see a demo of them below:


I have also recently rewritten and remastered the previous "Westernesse" theme, which can be found here.

However, at this point, I have a problem. What do you guys think the good and faithful Numenorean faction should be called? At the moment my choices are either Dunedain or Elendili, so I'd love to hear what your preferences and/or own suggestions are for a name.

Manage to get it working, but I have 2 bugs, whenever I create a builder in dunedain faction, he is actually a men (faction) builder, so he makes mens buildings, not dunedain's. so, whenever my 2 initial builders die, I become nothing more than a man of the west faction.
but epic mod, love to make huge ambushes
