Got the fill list of civilisation bonus' bugs! Might have missed a few things but I think I've tested everything.
Angmar: Forge upgrades still cost gold; cavalry don't have +1 attack v buildings
Gondor: Healer/banner bearer range bonus doesn't work
Harad: +1 villager -125 food(9should be +2 villagers);infantry and cavalry don't have any minus armour.
Lothlorien: Cair alphen don't cost -50 wood.
Rhun: stables + 50% hp(not just +50 ; minor typo
Eregion: butteries and storehouses not free.
Mordor:The black orc upgrade doesn't reduce by 50% however the food cost goes up by a hundred but the gold cost goes down by 225.; The black speech upgrade in castle doesn't work.
Rhovanion: foot archers have no bonus attack v cavalry.
Minas Morgul: Town hall has extra los, but it doesn't show +2 attack in the town hall stats.
Rivendell: town hall work rate doesn't improve; healers aren't cheaper
Umbar: Only war ships cost -20%
I think everything else works perfectly :)

Looks like your install didn't go well. Can you confirm you have the 1.0c patch installed, and no other patch/mod?

Excellent game. Units are have amazing detail. I don't like the design of the Elven buildings but hey, that's just opinion. I haven't noticed any glaring glitches. **Just a few problems... After opening the game a few times, it stopped playing 'Lord of the Rings main theme' and replaced it with the standard medley. I suppose that if I reinstalled it, it would work just fine but I'm far too lazy. I noticed that Rohan, as an AI, will build the Hornburg rather than the standard castle for that type…
