RotWK HD Logo Renders




What is it?


The RotWK: HD Edition is a model pack featuring both reworked and all-new unit and hero models.

If you like what we do, support the team on Patreon.


How does it work?


RotWK: HD Edition is being developed primarily for use on Revora's T3A:Online multiplayer server.

The most important feature of this model pack is that it's intercompatible, meaning you can

use it online even if your opponent doesn't have it installed.

You will not run into any compatibility or out-of-sync issues while running this pack.


How do I install it?


RotWK: HD Edition is still currently in development.

When King Thór reestablished the Halls of Erebor and crowned himself King Under the Mountain, the wealth that flowed from the mountain led to a valley situated immediately before its gates to be settled by Men of Rhovanion. Thusly the City of Dale was founded - Erebor's closest ally, ruled by the Lord of Dale.

When Smaug took Erebor, the citizens of Dale abandoned their City and fled southwards, down the Long Lake, to Esgaroth, a town upon the Lake and an important center of trade in the region.

For many years the Men of Dale and Esgaroth lived frightful lives beneath the shadow of the Lonely Mountain, until, at long last, Thorin, grandson of Thrór, appeared - strong-willed and grim - determined to retake the Mountain and slay its unlawful occupant. Then, when Smaug outwitted Thorin's burglar and set off to burn Esgaroth, he was finally slain by a skillful bowman named Bard, directly descended from Girion, the last Lord of Dale, who had died in his attempt to repel Smaug's attack almost 200 years ago.

In Age of the Ring, Dale and Esgaroth are well represented in the Erebor faction.


Bard the Bowman

Starting off, they can recruit Bard the Bowman himself! He gets a full set of unique powers, chronicling his journey from an 'honest' bargeman to the leader of his people.


Rank 1: Debilitating Shot
A precise arrow shot that significantly slows down an enemy hero.
Rank 3: Rabble-rouser
Targeted units gain experience.
Rank 5: Honest Bargeman
Bard delivers several barrels of fish, passively healing nearby friendly units.
Rank 8: Descendant of Girion
Leadership, also attains his armor.
Rank 10: Dragonslayer
Bard receives secret whisperings of a friendly thrush and gains immense damage versus monsters, most significantly Smaug.

Dale Barracks

No Spellbook points required. Erebor can build the Dale Barracks from the start, signifying its close relationship to the Men of Dale. The model we used comes from the very first BFME mod ever announced (back when BFME1 wasn't even out yet) - Rhovanion Alliance, modeled by a long-gone artist named Andros de Nurne.

Dale Units

The first unit you will likely buy from the Dale Barracks is not actually from Dale!

They are closely related, however. Of old, the Master of Esgaroth has armed and maintained a small regiment of townsguard, tasked with upholding law and order upon the Long Lake. These are a basic spearmen unit, fully upgradeable, as a possible alternative to Erebor Spears.

Then, after the Barracks is upgraded, two additional units become available, both elite: Dalish Swordsmen and Dalish Longbowmen. The rekindled wealth of Dale is exemplified in its excellently trained and equipped army, ranking among the finest in all of Rhovanion. In Dalish military tradition, skillful use of the longbow is a prime mark of an excellent soldier.

The Dalish Longbowmen will be able to fire a Black Arrow shot at rank 2, while the Dalish Swordsmen gain Dalish Supremacy at rank 4, demoralizing enemy Easterling and Khand units.

Hello mod team! First of all, thank you very much for your amazing work with all of the Middle Earth games! It is amazing to see still amazing work being done for such an old, but yet amazing game, with an awesome context! Thank you!
If I may, I would just like to ask if there is any timetable for the launch of the HD version for the Witch King. No pressure, I understand making such work is not easy! But if you have any time table that could be shared with the community, I believe, me and many others would be very thankful :)
Once again, awesome work! Please do keep it up!

Hope this HD mod will released soon. It's looks so cool at BFME 2 1.09. I dream to see this mod at ROTWK 2.02. Because I love that patch and ROTWK at all. Great job you do. Also hope to see the Sauron with HD textures, meshes and black orks retexture too.

This will be great to see a patch like that for other mod like edain, I think this should be a cool submod. But no really to replace the edain models but to improve them a little keeping the same appearence spirit.
