"Well, here is Mirkwood! [...] Greatest of the forests of the Northern world. I hope you like the look of it." ― Gandalf, in J.R.R. Tolkien, The Hobbit, "Queer Lodgings"
Elves of the Woodland Realm
First of all: Yes, we know that they are not exactly looking like in the films but masoldo did his best with the 3d-modells which we have at hand and they are looking great in my opinion. For a future update any modeller can feel free to join the team and create better armouries ^^
Special thanks also to Pc_Toby for the base mesh of the shield and a sword!
Not a lot to say here, with this unit the troop tree will start
Scouts and Sentinels of the Woodland Realm
One part of the troop tree will lead to the scouts and sentinels of the Woodland Realm. They will bear light armoury, bows and short weapons. While they will of course also be able to fight in close combat, they favour of course a ranged one, with the highest tier having superior skills and proficiencies in Archery.
Infantry and Archer troop tree
You can see a slow evolving from Light Infantry and Archers with simple armour towards more experienced ones with leather armour. The following upgrades contain chain and scale mail. The final tier are then the Royal Archers and Swordsmen.
Regarding the next update, it is on the way. I won't give an exact date though ^^
We will go back to the roots with it in some ways, as some UI elements will be the same again as in TLD. Some others will have a TLDO touch though. And as far as I am aware, the Isengard bug which kills all Uruk-hai is fixed now, for the followers of the White Hand something to cheer up.
Have a nice day!
