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".

ElrondHighLord's skins for several Last Alliance characters: everyone from the King of Lorinand to the Lady of Imladris!

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, 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!
