The Great Gate of Minas Anor lay broken

Posted November 9, 2012. By Lauri

Hey all

I don't have a particular big update today, but here goes.

Veterans of Minas Anor
When the Great Gate of Minas Anor lay broken before the Host of Khôragan and the lower levels of the city burned, King Eldaravir realized the futility of further defending his City, and ordered the Captains to gather the remaining citizens and defenders of Minas Anor so that they could collectively escape across the passes of Mount Mindolluin towards the vales of Lossarnach and into Lebennin. Now, these Veterans of Minas Anor make their stand on the west bank of the Celos river, refusing to allow the land of Lebennin to fall like Minas Anor did.
They are the basic spearmen unit of Gondor. You can find other pretty nice descriptions of units by Matias here.

"The shite's blue!" you say? Well yes. I've overhauled Gondor so that pretty much all units now apply for Housecolour. And the great thing about it is that all of them look great in many variations! Even pink!

And for all, behold the beauty of Matias' awesome Rhûn buildings; In-game!

Hope you enjoyed some in-game screenshots for a change!
That's it, take care!


Knights of a golden ship and a silver swan

Posted August 7, 2012. By Lauri

Hey everyone!

Now it's over a year since the last update, and it's been over 5 years since I started on this mod(!).
What have I got today? Remakes... Yes, damn the self criticism.. I wanted to improve those who bears the token of a golden ship and a silver swan..

Eranoth, the Prince of Dol Amroth, has been redone. He wears a cape, a sword and no helmet to distinguish himself from his knights.

And of course his Knights of Dol Amroth has been redone to fit. No, they don't come dismounted. They have been assigned to the be only cavalry unit that Gondor has, as I have been doing some pre-balance work, trying to settle the factions with a decent amount of unit types that resemble their overall theme. This means that Gondor will have infantry as their main focus again, while Rohan will be more cavalry oriented and less about infantry than they are now. Same applies for Harad and Rhun and their themes. If you visit the site, you'll see an outdated category of how it used to be.

That is all, if there's anything you wonder let me know!

Keep your eye on the horizon, I've heard reports of Haradrim gathering an army in the South...


New beta released!

Posted December 19, 2008. By Lauri

Hey all!

It's time for a new beta for you all! :p
This time around, much has been done to the mod... In addition to Gondor, Rhun are considered done, which means you can do head on battles with two complete factions! For the record, I'd say that Rohan is above 60%, if not 70%! A couple of heroes and a single unit missing, that's all... Means it's playable, but lacks heroes to lead them.. but spam units and that shouldn't be a problem :D

Go here to access the download page, or click here for a direct download.

I hope you'll enjoy the beta, and I really hope you won't forget two important things about it;
Report bugs here
Suggest suggestions here

And of course, if for some reason you can't get it to work, simply post in this thread, and I'll help you as good as I can :mad2:

Anyways, that's it folks! Again, I hope you enjoy it, as it's my Christmas present to you all, even if you don't celebrate! ;)


Forth Eorlingas!

This is the 4th Rohan update in a row! Woohoo for that :p

Anyways, I've got more screens for you ;)

Posted Image Posted Image

Not Knights enough for you? Well, they are for me :p And yeah, the render for the ram is bugged... It would be hell to get a real render working, so if it looks weird, it is :D
What? There's a new layout on the pictures? Well, of course there are! ;)
I do hope the new layout on the renders makes it better for you to see the renders ;)
They are after all smaller and less in size than the previous ones, and shouldn't be filling up the screens for any unlucky guy ;)

Yup, that should leave about 4 more things to do before Rohan is done ;)
Or, 3 actually, since one hero is a Royal Guard, and they'll use the same skin... excluding heads of course ;)

And for those who have played the beta, I'll tell you that I've now fixed the Kingdom of Gondor spell (and thus Rally the Mark).. The power to allows you to build troops from around the real of Gondor (and Rohan)... ;)

And as a last note... The chances are high for another release by Christmas ;) It's about 2 and a half months left, and I'm certain I can get to finish Rohan and Rhun by that time ;) By finish, I don't necessary mean bug-free :p

But there is a little problem concerning Rhun.. It still lacks a power in it's spellbook... Anyone wanna find up a nice power for a first tier? ;) You can go here to see what the other powers are, and think up another one.. No, I would like it to keep Heal out of it :p

Thats all, thank you for reading, or just watching the topic :p
