The Edain Mod aims to take you deeper into Middle-Earth than ever before and create a game worthy of Tolkien's books and Peter Jackson's movies. In our quest for lore accuracy, visual quality and deeper gameplay, we overhauled every aspect of the original game to craft a new, immersive Lord of the Rings experience. Discover the new factions of Lothlorien and Rohan, field new units and heroes for each of the existing factions, enjoy a visual style closer to the movies and unleash the power of the One Ring with individual Ring heroes for every factions. Light or Shadow, Defender or Conqueror... the choice is yours.

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 least that's my opinion.

Keep up the great work! (btw, the warg is awesome!)

They certainly have a different style, they were made by Nazgul of The Special Extended Edition.

And they look a lot better. =p

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?

It might be a little bit too big, depending on source. However it looks the correct shape.

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.

I think that since you follow the books more than the movies (at least for the lore) he should have his arm back, because in the books he dies at Azanulbizar and therefor always had it in his lifetime. Great work anyway!

Wow, sorry for the multiple posts, I hadn't seen that I wasn't connected and I didn't know it is possible to post as a guest...

No, because the Defiler is not Azog. He just uses the design and the hero of the character shown in the movie, but Azog died, as you said, at the battle of Azanulimbar long ago, so Azog won't be part of the mod.

You are right, I forgoth that but... This is another argument to remove this thing. Why should an unnamed hero have Azog's one metal hook?

I think what he meant is that the books Azog and the movies Azog are two different characters, story-wise. Since this is the movie version of Azog, there's no reason he should be affected by the books version. Just like if it was the book version, they would not have given him the metal hook for a hand.
