Total War: Rise of Mordor

This mod was without a doubt the most active this past month, specially at the end of the month. We had a new model for Hornburg and so so many concept arts and without a doubt wonderful work from the artist, Even the artist drew a concept art of himself (that should be in the mod without question), he will be in the last pic shown. A special attention to the gondorian units since there was a 10 day streak of gondorian concept art.
