The First Age of the Sun and Moon is perhaps the most eventful timeline within the works of JRR Tolkien. It is steeped in theological and philosophical themes, while retaining the epic scale that most are accustomed to when they think of Tolkien. Our hope is to recreate, as accurately as possible, the words and ideas of the author into the Total War universe. As there is yet to be any concrete display of what we believe to be the greatest and most thought-provoking age within the world of Arda, here is to you Silmarillion: Total War.
"Last of all Húrin stood alone. Then he cast aside his shield, and seized the axe of an orc-captain and wielded it two-handed; and it is sung that the axe smoked in the black blood of the troll-guard of Gothmog until it withered..."
Not until the Fall of Gondolin was any Balrog slain in battle, and the Troll-guard are the sole reason why. Troll-guard will be the speartip of any Angband assault. Though few in number, they are heavily armed and armoured and well suited to front line combat. They charge into battle alongside their Balrog commanders, safeguarding them with their lives and ensuring the Valaraukar survive to continue the fight against the enemies of Morgoth.
Model was taken from Reforged, but originally comes from Calypso's alternative third age patch. Enjoy!
