Not really, it would require re-animating of the uruks in order to make it look good. Plus I'd rather see the Dunlendings as the shield-bearing units for Isen.

Playing games? Ah, you'll never be a good modder if you get involved in actually playing them!

Yeah. Uruks didn't usually use shields in the movies because their broadswords required both hands for more power. :wub:

Quoted for the truth. ;)

Also, there are a couple of references in the movies where they bear shields: the scene where they were carrying up the battering ram,and the bit where Gimli says to Theoden '...these are Uruk-Hai; their shields broad, and their armour thick...' or something like that. Apart from that, they didn't have any.

...Many folk like to know beforehand what is to be set on the table; but those who have laboured to prepare the feast like to keep their secret; for wonder makes the words of praise louder...

Well, apart from adding Grima, Isengard won't have more changes, I guess.

Meh, I'm hoping Cel can do some work on FoD once his Elves are nearly perfected and he has some time for a "FoD patch."

actually the Uruk Hai did have shields, 2 types some had small shields on their forearms and others had large shields remember the Helm's Deep battle where they form the Tortoise formation.But this is totally to Cel's discetion.

To end the whole argument, the uruks have shields in bfme2, so Cel won't put them in :lol:
