After returning from my trip in the tropical Islands, the mod has a very brilliant future and heading its Noontide and of the mod so far, the best is yet to come. I have recently doen alot of work on future factions and a huge blueprint for designs and concepts have been created, on a scale that no other mod has doen for art and designs-absoluteley massive,which will be released at a later date.

Now for the Update,

First of all, The New Eowyn Unarmoured, the new model I created and was my first model as a modeller

Earlier on there was an update about Anaire, Fingolfin's Wife, Now here is the other image for her concept mounted. Possibly on a unicorn, as she is from Aman/ Valinor, however, I am questioning its canoness.

P.s. There should from now on be an update evry 1 to 2 weeks


I should probably say something creative right about now, but for some reason I have absolutely nothing creative to say. Well, that's it for this week's update... keep checking back, fans.
