The Dwarf Holds (TDH for short) is a modification for the Battle for Middle-earth, a real time strategy game by EA. We're adding a Dwarven faction based on Erebor, while also tweaking and adding a couple of things to the four original factions to get them up to the level of our new faction. This mod is being developed by Nertea, Matias (Dorian_Gray), M@tt, mike_ and Lauri. The mod is hosted by The 3rd Age, a division of Revora, the creative community.

Hello everyone,

We are proud to present to you all...

An Unexpected Mod

AUM is a campaign mod for BFME2. We are working on creating a new campaign based on the events of The Hobbit (films and books, including LotR appendices).

These missions will be mapped and scripted from scratch, with all-new art for units and heroes. Our current mission list (without gameplay details, of course ;)) can be found in the mod's summary.

To participate in an active discussion about what each mission will entail, you can join us at our subforum on

We will be updating this profile often with new renders, map screenshots, and other goodies.

You have plans to add to the elves as a new faction, I think would be great for this mod.

This mod is extremely good, maybe even the best bfme 1 mod out there, It adds an entire, fully complete dwarf faction that blends in perfectly with the other 4, there are a TON of maps that are all extremely well made, and nearly all units have been re-skined and look amazing. I would definitely recommend it, cause it's only going to get better with each update.
