Post news RSS Edain 4.6: Gundabad Warriors

Showcasing the new models for the Gundabad Warriors in Edain 4.6.

Posted by on

Greetings, companions of Edain!


Today, we're happy to finally share a first impression of the new Misty Mountains faction. We're starting our 4.6 previews with the new model for the Gundabad Warriors:

Gundabad Warriors


The orcs from the realm of Gundabad are much tougher and stronger than their relatives from Goblin-Town or Moria. When swarming and drowning your opponents in cheap goblins isn't enough, these fearsome warriors can give you the necessary combat prowess to stand your ground.

The old models for all Gundabad units dated back to the times before the Hobbit movies were out, so they were in dire need of an upgrade. Thankfully, the Hobbit trilogy provided us with more than enough cool material. Glorfindel23, who joined the Edain Team this summer while developing his submod, based this design on the soldiers that were marching on Erebor and fought in the Battle of the Five Armies.


We hope you liked this short update. As always, we're looking forward to your feedback. Stay tuned for more updates over the next weeks - and if you haven't done so already, consider voting for us in the Mod of the Year competition!

Your Edain Team

They look pretty metal! Is there a particular reason for the brown armour colour choice, if I might ask? Rust?

Yes. The orcs from Gundabad had a very rusty look in the movies, and it's a nice contrast to the clean and higher quality armor of the good factions.

They look great, I love how you incorporated the look of the 2 different kinds of warriors which come out of gundabad in the last film in one. Also like the brown, reinds me more of the rusted look that gundabad itself has in the film. Are these the heavy armour version though? Or is the left one without and the right one with heavy armour?

Can I just say thanks to you guys for bringing the Hobbit films to game form? Been playing for years and all this new content you slowly give us allows me to feel like there's still new stuff from PJ's Middle-earth coming out. I'm so excited to see the Misty Mountains in action.
