Those Dome Wardens look like an elite unit, the type of elite that in a situation where they are retreating they stay behind and make sure all the other get out alive and then they fight to the death. Umbar Magyr are lovely! I think it's the first time i see an Umbar unit with only Dunedain traces, no malice there. Also, love the red.
Like the Anduin cav too :)
Continue the good work

Quite, they're pikemen so guess they'd take ground and tell their foes a Sindarin equivalent to "Molon labe" ;)

Black Númenóreans are almost identical to their Dúnedain cousins in DCI, as seems to been JRR's intention (persons on both sides were born on Numenor, making it almost a civil war).
The Umbar Magyr has the uniqe advantage of heavy infantry for NK that do not have a penalty in desert terrain. Together with a swell apperance they're appriciated to field in the south :)

Thanks, we will!

In this period of time, the only difference between numenoreans would be where their beliefs reside. After the fall of numenor, the remaining numenoreans were still very strong, all of them, but some decided to join the dark forces. And yes, it would be like a civil war.
In fact, i believe that maybe if a high-lord joined Sauron with a major numenorean force, maybe he would be almost as equal as Sauron in terms of commanding, like 2 kings joined in a single cause to defeat the common enemy

For all Sauron's strengths in sorcery, craftmanship, tyranny and empire building, field command was not one of them. Putting some skilled Numenoreans in command would be prudent, though doubt he'd let it be unclear who was top dog hehe:
