Hey all

I don't have a particular big update today, but here goes.

Veterans of Minas Anor
When the Great Gate of Minas Anor lay broken before the Host of Khôragan and the lower levels of the city burned, King Eldaravir realized the futility of further defending his City, and ordered the Captains to gather the remaining citizens and defenders of Minas Anor so that they could collectively escape across the passes of Mount Mindolluin towards the vales of Lossarnach and into Lebennin. Now, these Veterans of Minas Anor make their stand on the west bank of the Celos river, refusing to allow the land of Lebennin to fall like Minas Anor did.
They are the basic spearmen unit of Gondor. You can find other pretty nice descriptions of units by Matias here.

"The shite's blue!" you say? Well yes. I've overhauled Gondor so that pretty much all units now apply for Housecolour. And the great thing about it is that all of them look great in many variations! Even pink!

And for all, behold the beauty of Matias' awesome Rhûn buildings; In-game!

Hope you enjoyed some in-game screenshots for a change!
That's it, take care!

This is what came to my mind when I read your fan fiction text.

Excellent work Lauri! My only criticism is that really, the Gondor armour skin could use more for highlights/shine. I'm sure you already know this, but it comes across very flat.

Very Good I really like the models and the story seems fitting for a new campaign and house color looks great also and might i ask what "host" has gathered if not only Easterlings ?

I see the watchtowers are still hatchless.

I thought the Haradrim were at Ithilien holding the rangers off from coming to Minas Anor's Aid and if you are making a new campaign I'd love to help :smile2ap:

Yeah, those are apparently the old towers. I'm not even sure if the new one's in-game, or if I haven't gotten around that yet :p
And a Host may be just Easterlings too you know, it doesn't have to be two different factions. But as far as I remember from the old pieces Matias wrote, Haradrims mostly dealt with the Rohirrim while Rhûn took care of Gondor. Either way, I'm sure they helped eachother out a bit. I mean, taking Minas Anor\Tirith is no smal feat :p

edit: as for campaign; No, there won't be one. Even though I would love to have one, I would have to wait until basically everything was done before starting on it. If not, I could risk gamecrashes and what-not, and have to start over. And if I were to complete it, it will probably take a few more years.. And then I'd be sick of it all :p

Ok I guess would be a long march from Harad to Rohan but it's your guys' story but the mod seems to be doing well at the moment and if you'll decide to do a campaign i can help once i'm done with my campaign maps :)

Yep, or ships, up the river Anduin.

But I don't recall if Matias made any changes to that part..
