DCI: Last Alliance is the independent sequel to Dúnedain Counter Invasions: Tôl Acharn and is a WIP (Work In Progress) submod to Third Age: Total War.
For faction previews, see below (click READ MORE)

Take the role as Gil-galad, last High-king of the Noldor, or Elendil, High-king of the Númenóreans in exile, as they rally Elves and honourable Men into the League which is called the Last Alliance, at the end of the Second Age.
The counter-invasion Tôl Acharn, 'Vengeance Comes', allow you to move mighty hosts against the Dark Lord.
Strenghten the cause of the League if you wish to, as the indomitable Durin IV of Khazad-dûm or as the brave riders of Rhovanion (using DCI mechanic).

Unless you instead fulfill the will of Sauron? Unleash the hunger of Orcs and wolves, be the warlord over the Easterlings, command the savage natives of Eriador to recapture their homelands or reign as a Black Númenórean lord at the head of the grim Haradrim, in the Invasion of the West.

Will the Men of the Mountain be loyal to the Númenóreans or become the Oathbreakers? The choice is yours.

Tôl Acharn and DCI mechanics in short

The "Tôl Acharn" is a 'counter invasion', the M2 Jihad-feature renamed; just as TATW have the "Invasion" for the evil factions, which in turn is the Crusade-feature renamed .
Factions with the culture 'Hosts of the West' [religion islam] can join the Tôl Acharns at will. The uniqe DCI mechanics allow factions of other cultures [religions] to temporary join the Tôl Acharn, if allied to the calling faction of the 'counter invasion'.

The DCI:LA team presents

The Kingdom of Khazad-dûm

Here is an hour's presentation and discussion about the Kingdom of Khazad-dûm, the faction of the Dwarves. They are spread out across the norther-west Middle-earth but maintain good order in their homelands, their caverns allows 'upgrades' of custom settlements while the brand new army of the Khazâd, expensive but good, makes ready to reclaim their former dominion.

A correction: the cavalry unit cards are from TATW

Hi son_of_persia
Progress is, well, good. You can see our expectations in the reply to elendour below.
As for animations, we do not have any animator so afraid not; we are able to implement animations from elsewhere, such as our slingers, and have a plan or two still in mind, but nothing completly new.

Ngugi are you going to release the mod in 2018?

Looking at our To Do-list, as summarized as late as yesterday by the team, and presuming no big problems arise, I dare say 2018.
