What this means is that there is a new mod under production, The Hobbit, there and back again for BFME2.
What started small, only worked randomly has become a full scale improving existing factions. Like people wouldnt propably expect, only these factions are present in The Hobbit modification
-Men of the West
But being as true as possible to the book, Isengard may have to get replaced later on.
Q: Will the Hobbit mod have a hobbits faction?
A: No, this is something that this The Hobbit mod wont have=no new factions. Will be just many cool things added to the existing factions but as Isengard wasnt evil at the time of The Hobbit, you might just see Hobbit or Dunedain faction Or then Dol Guldur to balance the evil factions out but Dunedain/Hobbit faction would be cool.
Q: Will the Hobbit mod have a dunedain faction?
A: See the first question.
Q: Will the Hobbit mod have a campaign ?
A: At some point I would really like to have this But skirmish comes first obviously
Q: Will the Hobbit mod have a bunch of hobbit heroes with cool powers?
A: Bilbo is hero for dwarves because he was pretty much the only hobbit shown in The Hobbit
Q: Will the Hobbit mod have new hobbit units?
A: I think that this is most likely to happen but they wont be for factions, will come from INN and other places
Q: Will the Hobbit mod have reskins ?
A: You will see many reskins for dwarves and goblins. Keep your eyes open for new models too
Q: Will the Hobbit mod be having single unit system that is planned for Last Alliance ?
A: At the end it might happen but as it takes alot time to perfect, I will propably finish all the material and all coding, then do the conversion
Q: Will Smaug be featured ?
A: Yes, naturally. I have some ideas on how to actually put him in but he will be featured.
Q:Will Erebor be reworked ?
A:I think that the one right now is pretty lowsy version so yes at some point.
