The Horse Lords is a mod for BFME 2 that revamps the current game into the vision that Peter Jackson illustrated in the Hobbit and Lord of the Rings trilogies.
Our basic goals for the first release are:
- To add the factions Mirkwood, Erebor, and Gundabad factions that replace EA's Elves, Dwarves, and Wild factions.
- To add a new campaign inspired by the Hobbit trilogies. A demo of this will be available in the first release.
- A balanced and fun game experience, we will be using the BFME 2 style building system and will flesh out it's basic functionality.
There is no current release date, as we are still in our early development stage.
If you have any questions feel free to ask me, or post it here on the MODDB Page
You can check our current progress here on the Revora Forums as we are a hosted Mod there: Forums.revora.net

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

Hey RiderofRohan I had an idea about Gandalf: maybe in the campaign, in the battle of the five armies level (if it has one) Gandalf can use Radagast's staff? :)

The trolls already have variations so that's taken care of. Maybe we will implement some of the armoured Nazgul.
The factions will remain the same as before (Erebor, Mirkwood, and Gundabad) but I'm revising their initial plan.
