The Wars of Arda is a (very) large expansion mod for the EA Games title "The Lord of the Rings: The Rise of the Witchking". We will first be heavily reworking the existing factions (adding Rohan and Harad and merging the Goblins into Isengard) and implementing a "minifaction" system where you begin a skirmish map with a "Core Faction" which contains a variety of units and heroes, and you purchase "Mini Factions" as the match prgresses, giving you access to new units and heroes. The Mod will also be implementing several "Eras" into the mod. This will NOT be an Empire Earth style system where you upgrade from one era to another, but a system where each era is a seperate set of skirmish factions and campaign missions (however all factions will be able to play against each other). The eras of the mod will be as follows. The War of the Jewels The Last Alliance The Rise of the Witchking The Wainriders Invasion The Quest of Erebor The War of the...

Renders for Arwen and Elrond, who have quite a few outfits each!

I'm feeling rather lazy this fine day, so I'll let EHL tell you in his own words...

Hey,

Things are definitely speeding up now, in preparation for the public release and that can be seen by the number of updates. This time last week, Elrond and Arwen nearly had the same number of unarmoured outfits, this week, however she has now more than double him, at a massive 14 gowns for her stage 1, 3 gowns for her stage 2 and 1 heavy armour, bringing the total of outfits to 18. I think this has to be some kind of record for the number of costumes a single character has in a strategy game. This renders are of those that were not included in her first update which can be found at

Hey,

This weeks update is to show off the new wardrobe for Elrond Halfelven, as he now has quite an extensive wardrobe to rival Arwen at this moment, but not for long( more about that later). He has a brand new armour design and some original unarmoured forms as well

Anyway... That seems to be it for now. I may drag up older updates later, or actually put some of these screens in our gallery, but for now just enjoy what we've got. Cheers!

Nice update. Quite a few costume changes there. Only thing is that the face of Elrond is different for the Heavy Armour version than all the others. It actually looks a little better I think, as the others seem to have a bit of a dark shadow over them and the head is a little too broad looking. Otherwise looking great!
