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).

So, in a bit of a lead-up to the Return of the Shadow final beta (no, not now... maybe this time next year...) I've decided to post some of the updates from the Wars of Arda main site. Now, these ones are very outdated, but I thought I'd put them up anyway for posterity. Eventually, I'm going to actually put all of them in the gallery, but I'm too lazy right now. All of these skins are courtesy of ElrondHighLord, the head skinner for the mod. Enjoy... and know that the full versions will eventually be in the gallery!
If for some reason you can't see any of the shots, they can be found at our mod's website, warsofarda.co.uk. Most of the updates will be on the front page, but you can drop by the forums to leave your two cents there. I hope you've enjoyed this preview; goodbye for now!
