Hello, The3rdAge community!

-

Today, I am going to offer to showcase the Erebor faction I made the Dwarven faction into for my own RotWK mod, "The One Ring Unleashed". Basically, all that's missing is Prince Bard II, Prince Thorin III, Dwalin, Bifur, and Radagast the Brown as heroes. However, I am curious: who wants to see what I have done so far for an Erebor faction? I will post screencaps and videos if anyone wants to see what I have done so far, with captions summarizing how I did it in 30 words or less per caption.

-

Next, I will add the four heroes mentioned. Then, I will reshape Mordor to have Mordor Uruk-hai instead of Orcs for common troops and to have six Nazgul (the other three will be in the Easterlings faction that I'll be reshaping Angmar into). In the meantime, who wants to see my WIP version of Erebor? Thanks in advance for any replies.

G'day Emperor of the East!

 

This is the showcase forum and I'd love to see your Erebor faction, this is your place to show what you want to everyone.

 

Your point of difference for Mordor sounds interesting.

Well, here is one! Erebor Fortress. What I did was use the Colorize tool in Gimp to change the color scheme to the green and gold of Weta Workshop's conception of Erebor. See the attached files for what I speak of.

And here I apply the same tool and theme to the Mineshaft and the Barracks.

But that's not all! I will be doing a separate post for each different aspect of Erebor, that way I am not putting a trillion posts into one topic.

I can see that you absolutely nailed the colours, they look correct, and I certainly recommend getting to know the more advanced features of GIMP, I don't know if it has a similar tool to Photoshop's match-colour but you should look into doing something similar.
