Oh dear, definitely wasn't expecting this. I still have a bookmark to the liquidfirestudios website lurking around deep in my archives and didn't think I'd ever hear again about LOME development.
Suffice to say, I'm glad this popped up in my updates list and now have one more thing to follow :-)
Wait, do you mean that the BFME: Tactics devs are behind the BFME Reforged project? Do you have a source for that?
Click on his name to access his profile, then on the right side in the middle it says "Contact - send message". Click on that and enter your message (where you are probably supposed to enter your application as beta tester).
The models are awesome, but the only explanation I have for what happened to their smiles is that they just watched Season 8 of Game of Thrones.
Wasn't easy to decide, but this year I went for my favorite Minecraft mods. Can't wait to see what features they'll be getting in future updates :D
Great to see this still being worked on so actively! Really looking forward to the next version :-)
The head reminds me a lot of the future murder beasts from Primeval.
Are you sure that it's 20 regions across (on average)? If you're calculating by the square root of 100 (minus one as starting region), keep in mind that you can walk 2 regions in 1 turn when they're both friendly^^
Considering the countless hours I spent as defender in skirmish siege maps waiting desperately for the AI to attack something other than the gate with siege engines other than rams or catapults, this looks just like the feature I've always been wishing for :-)
Suddenly I'm a lot more impatient for version 4.5 than before :D
Yes! Finally! The much requested rework of the Gorgoroth Beasts <3
Tom Bombadil's wife for this creature.
As you said yourself, from Sauron we know for certain he could take a very pleasing physical form as Annatar, the Lord of Gifts, until the destruction of his body during the downfall of Numenor.
For Morgoth we do not have such explicit records (edit: actually we do, see Scifi.stackexchange.com), but keep in mind that originally Melkor as one of the Valar and first creations of Eru Illuvatar could very well have possessed an enthralling appearance similarly to Sauron until his first defeat and imprisonment at the hands of the Valar or later degenerations / cripplings (e.g. the duel with Fingolfin). He surely didn't look nearly as advantageous later on.
I'd also like to point out that especially the early stages of Arda's history (which this picture would be set in) are dominated by the Elves which you could easily classify as being hyper-metrosexual. So it would kind of make sense for Melkor and Sauron to adapt under some circumstances :-P
(Nevermind, I hit the wrong button and now can't find the delete option xD)
It's always nice to praise a mod and even better when you might get a game for it :D
(Also I'd be most interested in Total War: Warhammer if that plays a role^^)
Very cool! Thanks for the continued support, I was not expecting it :-)
Congratulations on finally getting this released! It's a very impressive piece of work indeed :-)
"Tents of the Noldor and Dúnedain" sounds like the title of a rather filthy fanfiction, though.
I love building uber-fortifications, so bigger defense buildings are always a very welcome sight to behold :D
That's the scene between Galadriel and Frodo.
Definitely not from the Silmarillion ;-)
Ra fin fin
Erm ... what?
Actually, I think this is a dragon.
I'll just stop by to drop my love for LotR-TW, the first and best LotR conversion mod for the TW series there is. While it is a bit dusty, I just love the detailed in-depth gameplay options it provides and the things it achieves to do with the engine of Rome: Total War are just incredible. Twitter.com

I recognize him, that's Gronkh xD
To be fair, I didn't make that claim up by myself - I read it on Ardapedia (a german and very extensive wiki about anything related to Middle Earth which is usually reliable) and sadly there's no source provided there. I guess I have to ask them in the respective discussion section xD
I guess it's mostly the cape design that shows the inspiration. Add to that the style of his hair, the look of the breastplate and the caricature-ish style of Games Workshop and it doesn't seem that unlikely any more^^
Yes, but Imrahil's appearance in the tabletop is based on the figurine of Irolas from the collectible figures ( Thumbs3.picclick.com ). At least that's what I've been told - if it's incorrect, consider this as another correction ;-9
Well, in The Lord of the Rings Strategy Battle Game (by Games Workshop) Irolas is identified as Imrahil too. That may not make the bulk of his merch incarnations, but at least it happens :D
So Irolas consists of at least 50% Imrahil (hey, this sounds like an ad. Maybe it even is? :-P), which in turn means that at least 50% of Imrahil showed up in the films, and that's precisely what I wanted to say originally :D
