A mod for Bfme1 (patch 1.03) that adds many new heroes, units, buildings, powers, and spells. Also includes new maps and a revamped AI. See full description for more information.

The Kings of the West mod adds many new heroes, units, buildings, powers, spells, maps, and even AI to the Battle for Middle-earth. It also features the new fortress Minas Morgul which will be both a new map as well as an upgrade for the Mordor Skirmish base.

New heroes will include Shagrat, Gorbag, the Mouth of Sauron, Gothmog, Erkenbrand, Theodred, Elfhelm, Grima Wormtongue, Sharku, Ugluk, Madril, Mablung, Beregond, the Blue Wizards, and many more. Existing heroes will get new powers and mounts and the heroes each side gets has been changed: Gondor now receives the 3 hunters as well as several new heroes, while Rohan gets a host of new Westfold heroes led by Theodred. Gandalf and the Blue Wizards replace the Army of the Dead as the super summons for Gondor and Rohan respectively, while Sauron replaces the Balrog for Mordor.

New units include Citadel Guards, new Tower Guards, new Rangers, and Spearmen for Gondor; Uruk scouts and Crow spies for Isengard; Royal Guards and Men of the Westfold for Rohan; Morgul Orcs and Rhun Swordsmen for Mordor to name a few.

New Maps include Minas Morgul, Minas Tirith, Isengard, Lothlorien, the Path of the Dead, Amon Hen, and a new snow map.

The mod also includes AI which is much stronger than the default AI and it will build all the new units and heroes and use the new spells and powers.

The overall goal for the mod is to make bfme feel more like the movies and books by adding in new units while keeping the fun and the "what if this happened?" feel. The mod will also try to recapture the unique-ness of the sides and restore the focus on siege warfare.

1.03 is the patch for the Game, not the mod, you need to update BFME to play the mod correctly.
