Posted by on

Gamers, modders, fans of this fantastic universe or simply of fantastic games and mods, strangers from distant lands! We gather here once more to hear the tales of Modding through out Middle-Earth and Valinor as the Ring-bearer brought us : The December 2021's newsletter!

First of all, we apologise for posting this Newsletter so late almost close to the next one. But our ways of communication were blocked by agents of the Dark Lord and orcs were raiding our roads, so we had to clear that out first.
We hope you all had an amazing Christmas and if you don't celebrate Christmas we hope you had an amazing holiday to watch Lotr movies Extended Editions!

The year of 2021 ended greatly in terms of modding. So much activity, releases, updates, previews etc.
Stick around to know what happened this month.

The Battle for Middle-Earth: Reforged

One of the mods people in this community are most expecting to see how it will be when the first release comes. We have set it as outside modding since it has becoming a whole new game with a new engine, a better engine to be honest. This month we have a preview of the Elven Fortress, i would live there!

Elven Fortress

Conquest Reimagined

Unfortunately this project does not have a Moddb page. So far it has a Discord server (Conquest Reimagined) and it is worth watching! This month they made a model for an epic Sauron mace really nice detailled! And 2 beautifully made Fanarts Wallpaper type as you will see down below.

And this is all for the month of December! So many good gifts that Christmas gave us in Modding! Releases, models, fan-arts, concept-art, mapping, news and more news! Tell us down in the comments what mod this month gave you more pleasure to track and if you were happy with what this month gave us!
