Dude, gamesworkshop didn't make up those names :wub:
"The Black Serpent" Seems slightly familiar :lol:

Heroes: Gimli, Dain, Brand (?)


Hmm... Brand was of Dale but Dale did have a good relationship with the Dwarves so it could be possible. Though maybe Thorin might fit better...?

Well I've never heard them mentioned in Tolkiens works, whereas the Black Serpent was mentioned :wub:

Which Thorin? Oakenshield or Stonehelm? Stonehelm makes more sense IMO, but I think the Dwarves should get Brand as a hero anyway

The Dwarves will have Dale as a "subminifaction"... So, Brand is in...

And nothing is completely decided about Harad yet, but thanks for all suggestions... We'll work something out... :wub:

BTW... The Black Serpent would be kinda interesting IMO...

Suladan and Muhad :wub:

How about giving them a horsemen hero simply called "The Black Serpent"? It'd be better than just using names that Games-Workshop came up with.


Yep they didnt come up with them names. The mahud was actually in the movie(Rotk).. So im not sure if that one was just movie based.

Regardless of their origin, I think we can all agree the names are way too commonly used in mods.

That comment worries me. You're not planning to add a black snake as the Haradrim hero are you? :wub:

I like the idea of a hero that can mount a Mumakil... personally, I don't care too much if he's called mahud or not.
The "black serpent" rider is a cool idea.

Thanks for all the ideas, guys :wub:

:p Well, I think it sounds pretty cool too... Buuuut, first of all, it's not very true to Tolkien (though, he never mentions if there's any giant snakes in the east, so who knows... :p )

And second, it would be really much work making snake-anims... ^_^

Haradrim are from the south, not the east :p

I imagine there is snakes in the south, because otherwise they wouldn't use a snake as their banner.

If your basing the mod on true-tolkien then no it would definatly suck.
If your basing the mod on crazy insane stuff it wouldnt be to bad.

But maybe a cool power for a hero would be to summon some small snakes? :p
Maybe even as a spy type unit like crebain but on ground?

Upgrade suggestions:

Minas Morgul:
Scavenged Armor
Crude Blades

Harad:
Perhaps upgrades for mumakils such as spikes, warpaint, archer mounts, banners, or those guys that were at the front? (Muhads?)

Would somebody please kill me if these were already given? Thanks :p
