the dwarves have allready been implemented in 1.4 database and the hammers as you can see in screeshots actually arent THAT huge ....they have allmost the same size as the axes of "axemen of erebor" but transfered into a hammer version
I hate WOW as well , but IIRC hammers haven been a totaly lore accurate weapon for a dwarf..... BTW thanks for comments
This was our main goal, thank you!
1) Settlements are planned to be added , specificaly for dwarves and Dunland, as for the elves (i think Beorn should answer that , but IMHO ) they probably should have the same regions but respectively divided
Yes i suppose Lorien will be a small faction (facing extinction) with mighty units
2) Mwardens of Galadhrim are equipped with a glaive (plz dont call it pike ) and bow .... So as for battle style, it will be : Stakes/Flaming arrows for the primary bow + 2h elven glaive (as seen in the battle screenshot), ...
unfortunately it is impossible to have them behave as archers & pikemen at the same time....there are limitations as for special abilities!
