Hey everyone,

It's near the end of the month so I think it's time we fill you guys in on what's been happening.
We've converted Dol Guldur to Gundabad, and have since added:

an incomplete unit roster consisting so far of:

- Gundabad Orcs - 250 - They are similar to the Mordor Orcs in their usage, however they are faster, deal more damage and have more armor.- Can receive Banner Carriers- Can use Poison Blades at level 2.
- Gundabad Orc Archers - 400 - They are similar to the Mordor Orc Archers, however are faster and have a higher hit percentage.- Can receive Banner Carriers- Can use Poison Arrows At level 2 - Can use Flaming Arrows
- Gundabad Warg Pack - 350 - Similar to the Rise of the Witch King Warg pack for Isengard, but can trample. They have a good attack, but weak armor.- Can use Howl- Can receive Banner Carriers
- Gundabad Warg Riders - 550 - Similar to the Isengard Warg Riders, however are faster with less armor- Can use Howl- Can use Posion Blades at Level 2- Can receive Banner Carriers
- Dol Guldur Orc Pikemen - 550 - A kin to the Isengard Pikemen, however come in a smaller horde and have better stats- Can receive Banner Carriers- Can receive Forged Blades- Can receive Heavy Armor
- Dol Guldur Orc Infantry - 500 - A kin to the Isengard Infantry, however come in a smaller horde and have better stats- Can receive Banner Carriers- Can receive Forged Blades- Can receive Heavy Armor

We have also added The Gundabad Patrols consisting of Gundabad Orcs and Orc Archers. And if you Build a warg pit you gain Gundabad Warg Sentries.
The Gundabad Wargs were a collaboration between me and Mathijs


Dol Guldur Orcs have been donated by Ruudy, I've had them for a while actually but am now able to put them in-game


Gundabad Orcs were made by Mathijs:


All these orcs have been rallied by the Defiler:


And here is a preview of the New Gundabad Fortress done by Mathijs


The Spell Book will remain similar to EA's Goblin faction, however this is still being discussed internally. The Base destroying powers like Summon Dragon and Balrog will be removed and replaced, with something just as interesting.

We've also added the 1.08 patch's maps and apts, allowing players to play comfortably in Widescreen!

The mod however conflicts with 1.08's code, so you'd need to switch back to 1.06 to play.

I'd also like to thank King-Thranduil for joining as an asisstant coder, without him some of this stuff would not be in-game as yet, and Mathijs and Renny for their help with art .

Thanks for Reading- The Horse Lords Team

The extended editions are too long for standard movie releases. Generally they try to keep the bare essentials for the theatrical releases. I just hope the 3rd movie's extended edition actually bothers with Thorin's funeral and explaining who runs the newly reforged kingdoms... Got real tired of explaining it to friends and relatives who didn't read the book

Yeap, Dain's right, when I saw first time the BotFA trailer and the movie on the cinema in its release I was on a fkn rampage wanting my money back. It was half movie, clearly. Who gives a sh*t about Alfrid ? And what made me mad was no wargs, no rams, completely confusing battle tide and outcome and to be honest, I expected to see endless Orc hordes Minas Tirith style, not Uruk-hai with stupid looking helmets. Now my money are real worth to spent to see this masterpiece instead of the theatrical release junk. And Hilda, Tilda or whatever is one of Bards childs.

True, in the Book Bolg leads an army of Goblins and wargs, and Azog is already dead. Well Orcs were more of a challenge than seeing Goblins and actually better for the big screen. when the Hobbit was written and released back then it was like a fairytale and there was no Orc Concept, then Orc/Goblin became the same as later explained, but at least give us ORCS NOT URUKS :P
