Hey all, and yes... it's time for another one ;)

In these dark times we find Feothan with few remaining troops in the heat of a small scale battle, but they are heavily outnumbered...
Posted Image

As they are nearly destroyed by their enemies, refugees of Erebor comes to their aid, seeing that they can drive the enemy back, and rescue the forces of Rohan...
Posted Image Posted Image

The dwarves hasten to the battle, and manage to slay the enemy's leader, weakening their morale... Eventually the enemy flees, and a few of the rohirrim pursue some of them, letting only a handful of enemies escape, most likely to die in the wilds...


That's it for history...
Now, screenshots..
15 of 'em too!
I'll link 3 here, to explain a few things, but the rest can be found here! ;)

In this picture, and of all the new screens, this picture is the only one who I am Gondor... But you can only see that on the HUD, or whatever you might call it.. Where you see your heroes icons, the spellbook, the palantir and so on...
Because, everything else on that screen, is something the AI has made... Yes, everything you see on that screen, and every other screen containing something from Gondor, it's the Gondor AI who made it, which you might call a little cool, as this mod ain't only meant for online play ;)
Also, if you take a look at the mini-map... Let me explain something..
Me = Grey
My Ally = Orange
My Bottom Enemy = Yellow
My Top Enemy = Blue

Posted Image
This is the outcome of the last screen.... Well, this is mostly to show you how how unbalanced the factions seems right now, and I think they are that too... So I have some more work here :p

Posted Image
Well, only thing here is that they look like they are single units, but their not... I screwed up something when coding them, and this was the result :)
Still, they look pretty awesome as single units, which is why I wanted to show you the picture ;)

Also, you might notice on some of the pictures that there are units of the Kingdom of Gondor... Well, this means that the AI has purchased that spell in the spellbook, and taking advantage of it.... You might also see some fighting action that looks like easterlings are fighting eachother.. Well, they are doing that, as they are AI too :ohmy:

Most of the screens are pictures of what the AI is doing, with only very few pictures of my own makings... Great, isn't it? ;)

Anyways folks, that's it... There might soon come new stuff, as I have some WIPs to show, but I'd like to finish them up more first ;)

Oh I didn't look at these renders yet, thinking they were the same as the ones you sent me.

I was wrong. :p Good work!

For the single unit, riders, why not make the horde, in like a skirmish formation look would look as sweet as they do in single units.

that's pointless... afaik, most used either wedge or line formation, as it's the best :p
going alone should happen when you've fought through their ranks... ;)

well....
I think a mismatch in the childobject will do ;)
so that the summoned horde, which is the childobject, doesn't have the same units as the main does :p
or...
it contains, say RohanRohirrim_Summoned, but in the Ranks, it's RohanRohirrim.... something along those lines ;)
