Ever since we reworked the Dwarves to be more in line with movies, new battlewagons have been one of the most frequent fan requests. In Edain 4.5, we have answered your wishes: You'll be able to build all-new chariots in the movies' style!
Joragon has created entirely new models based off the Hobbit movies, making the wagons look much more fearsome:
We took that opportunity to not only redesign the visuals, but also add new gameplay and upgrades to the wagons. Our primary goal was to create more distinction between the wagons of the different Dwarven realms, further pronouncing each faction's unique gameplay.
To that end, each wagon now starts with a different crew:
As you may have noticed, some of these crew members used to be upgrades of their own. Don't worry, though - we have introduced a host of new upgrades to replace them!
Each wagon can choose between one of three improvements. Two are available to all factions, but the third is faction-specific and thus further enhances their unique traits.
Visually, some upgrades also add more crew members, such as an officer of Erebor for the Wheel Blades:
We're very happy with how the new battle wagons turned out. We think they not only look much cooler (shoutout to Nazgul from the SEE mod, who created the awesome ram models), they also play better and add interesting new options to all three Dwarven factions. We look forward to letting you play with them! Let us know what you think of them in the comments :)

You could think im exxagerating the value of this mod,but i can only tell you : try with your hands. Edain mod is without any doubt the best RTS based on the LotR series,and,but this is just my opinion,the best RTS overall. While being much more true to tolkien than any other EA's work,it combines great complexity with good-balance in an excellent way. But what,above all things,makes this mod stand out are the models of the units,heroes and buildings,just take a look to the gallery on the site…
