Well, I don't do "Mini-Factions". Everyone else is doing them, I'm trying to stay at least a little bit unique. In release 5, I will be releasing the Arnor and Harad factions. More info on those two later. Because I am releasing Arnor, Elendil and Isildur won't be joining Gondor any time soon. Imrahil might make a scene in the mod, because I took all of Gondor's Horse Buffing Heroes away (aka Theoden and Eomer). Helm Hammerhand will not be making an entrance, he wasn't part of either Angmar's rise or the War of the Ring. Instead of Arnor, I might just throw in a "Last Alliance" faction, I'm still thinking about it. In release three I'll give the Dwarves and Elves some much needed attention, along with wall towers/seigetypething for elves and Isen. Durin is a bit out of place, so don't expect to see him, but Balin will probably get in. Remember, I can't model units so all my new things are donated. I can however model buildings, so expect to see some new versions of those in the near future. I will try to get a basic concept for the Haradrim Fortress released soon (need to finish release 2 and three before worrying about release five
Dang this is a long post!
EDIT: Ok, here is the reply to the guests post (sorry for not replying earlier!): Guardians of Westfold: Great Idea! I'll definately be adding in some elite archers soon
Rohan seige works: Yes this is coming. I will remove the ents and stick in a rohan battering ram and some version of ranged seige. Problem is sticking to Tolkien lore, where the Rohirrim don't seem to have any real type of seige weapons... Guardians of the Citadel: I will just buff up the Dol-Amroth knights if there is a balance issue
Royal Guards: Sorry, I would have done this if not for complications of mounting hordes. It turns out that hordes simply cannot use the mount code. Sorry, but is an engine limitation :( Hourns: Possibly, but I have heard of complications with ent hordes. I'll look into it. Dwarven Cavalry: Looking into it. All your ideas for Isen are superb, I'll see which ones I can implement.
