aotr dolamroth




Dol Amroth was a promontory situated on a peninsula in Gondor facing the Bay of Belfalas. The emblem of the Prince of Dol Amroth was a silver-upon-blue banner, bearing a ship with a swan-prow upon the sea.
Its northern shore defined part of Cobas Haven, the small bay into which the Morthond River flowed.

Upon the headland the Princes of Dol Amroth established a castle and thus Dol Amroth referred to this stronghold and to the neighboring port-city, the chief city of the fief of Belfalas. Within the walls of the city was the Sea-ward Tower or Tirith Aear, which had a bell that was rung for the benefit of mariners.
~ From Tolkiengateway.net


In Age of the Ring, the Princedom of Dol Amroth is featured prominently in the Gondor faction. The Dol Amroth Citadel is unlocked from the spellbook, after which it can be built on the map.

The structure can build three additional battle towers.

It can recruit Dol Amroth Men-at-arms, Knights of Dol Amroth, and Prince Imrahil himself. These units will be fairly elite.

The Knights of Dol Amroth unit isn't finalized yet and will be presented at a later date.

As well as offering new units on land, unlocking the Dol Amroth Citadel also enables the building of the Swan Ship, a new ship unit that can both transport units across open water and attack with supreme range and damage.

So guy's I just want to say thank you for redesigning the Gondor buildings!
I always wanted to have my own 3D printed Gondor city, but the original model's where sadly not so 3D print friendly, however the new designs you guy's make look more 3d print friendly. Can't wait to try to print them :D
So again, thank you!

Sounds interesting. If you have a basic knowledge of 3d modeling, you'll see the new structures can be easily taken apart, with several distinct tower and wall elements that are not intrinsically connected to the main mesh.

If you want I can send you some elements to test with.

I would love it to try some of elements to test there 3d print capabilities. Also handy that it is not one big file, it makes the printing easier and less chance of errors during the print.

The different tower and walls come from upgrades to the next level if I am not mistaken, right?

Some do, other bits are just basic parts of the structure that are still separate meshes. For example, these are straight from the archery range and barracks:

Note that they can be further taken apart with little effort.

Well in that case, let's make it like a IKEA set. XD
If all the part that "lose" it will be no problem printing.
