    Adnim dulg kathuphazgm!

    (which, if I got the grammar right, would mean "Black Nmenreans [are/were] conquerors" in Adnaic ^^ )

    I think the plural would rather be "Kathuphazgn", but apart from that yeah, let the King's Men conquer all that is, for Middle-Earth is rightfully theirs ^^

    Thought -in was plural form only for nouns, not verbs, but I'll leave that to the linguists to sort out haha ^^

    The BNs anyhow were a royal pain in the ass and killed many of my heroic Dnedain commanders - before I wiped them off the map

    Will we see the Swan Knights as they appear in Third age? or will they have a new look?

    Actually here "Kathuphazgn" is no verb but a noun, in this type of sentence structure the verb [are/were] is implied, and only [conquerors] as a noun is present.
    Plus I believe it depends on whether the word has a "strong" or a "soft" inflexion, for instance batn (road) become batni in plural because it has a strong inflexion but karab (horse) becomes karib because the word structure has a soft inflexion.
    So I guess it would either be "Kathuphazgn" or "Kathuphazgni" , but I don't really like how the second one sounds, so ...

    (Sorry it's all gone abit off-topic, it's just that for me Adnaic is like Sindarin for most Tolkien fans, I love it )

    And they definitely deserve to be the toughest sons of biches around, if only that damn script wasn't there to slow them down !!! Still having nightmares about it man (cries in Adnaic )

    But I'm also expecting alot from the Rhudaur hillmen faction, I hope that they can give an interesting campaign as well ^^

    The TATW Swan Knights are clad in platemail and are quite gothic. They are stunning in themselves and fitting their setting, but not what this game aims for. Our 'Swan Knights' are named Belfalas Roquen, you can see them in the third spoiler box above, as well as have been displayed in the Numenorean Kingdom's preview earlier (guess I should ask xHoly make a new one, of some better quality haha):

    Mind you, while they are not look as heavy, in the fray they are beasts of war haha ^^


    @Tar-Falasson
    In you I trust, to me grammar and lingustics is a foreign science

    I dare say they'll deliver just that

    As it been of interest to people before, a screen shot here could be a good opportunity to post a comment on campaign balance




    As is seen in this campaign as the Kingdom of Khazad-dm on VH/VH, we're at turn 250. The arch nemisis Orcs of the Misty Mountains, and their allies the Hill-men of the North, have both been defeated and the war now focus on the east.
    So, what is the conclusion of interest? That there is still great tension and a challenge!


    With a vast kingdom, fueled by rich mines, we can field about 3-4 operative stacks on the offensive, of splendid but expensive Dwarven warriors. Our enemy, Rhn Confederacy meet us with about 10 stacks in total - clearly not a matter of stack spamming, but still an advantage in numbers, in amounts of soldiers as well as in overall strategic flexibility.
    Some of Rhn's armies are bound up against the weakened Rhovanion. But since an Invasion just struck at the Elves of Eryn Galen ("Mirkwood") and Harad taken their capital, Eryn Galen made a cease fire with Rhn, freeing up more forces to assult us.

    Rhn Confederacy is superior in ranged warefare and in cavalry (us having only limited, and much valued, mercenary cavalry), and deploy more siege weapons than the Dwarves currently field, so every battle spell great danger to the frontlines. Indeed, as Rhn now field many of their special units such as Balchoth Sicas, Haerhn Axemen and Khand Infantry, even close quarter combat offer a fierce trial.

    Hope this shall be an appealing thought.
    DCI: Last Alliance is and will be a hard TW experience, no doubt, but also one that should be able to offer you a contest still 250 turns into a campaign, without resigning to stack spamming.
    Victories are important, defeats are dangerous - battles count!




    (Note: some Rhn unit cards are still placeholders)

    Looks good for 250 turns in, already better gameplay than pretty much everything else for any TW game. Personally I would move that region southwest of Umbar to north of Rhun to make it a bit more interesting up there than just the one big region to take and hold, also it will help the CAI out in that area. Plus Harad looks like it could stand to be neutered a bit.

    Edit; Maybe some random raids scripts for Harad's southern regions on the map border from Nomads and southern Tribesmen?

    While I think it seems Harad is powerful I think this is because the AI seems to have issues controlling two far apart and seperate areas as the same faction. They seem to be doing ok in north no doubt thanks to KDs excellent work on Hill men and OOTMM

    Haha, now that's a praise appriciated, alreadyded
    We do not have to move, as we're not maxed out on regions (hmm, unless the intent is to limit Harad further at the same time), but I follow your thought, will take it into account.

    On Harad, it has been slightly tweaked since this screen shot was taken to restrict them some more, but it should also be noted that this screen shot is in the context of 250 turns.
    In the camapign, around turn 50 Harad had managed to get behind Osgiliath and take Minas Anor ("Tirith"), something I seldom seen before hehe, crippling the southern Dnedain defence capacity.
    Still, it took Mordor and Harad another 100 turns, were they sometimes were seriously beaten back, before Numenrean Kingdom's lost all their 'Gondor' settlements. No shame on their behalf thus, and I do not find this unfair. I suspect Tolkien would concurred, haha;

    Anrion did not get help soon enough ;P

    Default Preview: Settlement Models - Part 3

    Preview: Settlement Models - Part 3

    Part 1 is here.
    Part 2 is here.


    ~~~~ Orc Castles ~~~~

    The Orcs of the Misty Mountains and Mordor get some new castles. Dark, grubby and evil, just how an Orc likes it, furnished with life's necessities: filthy tents, troll cages, dungeons, pits and spikes wherever is (or not) appropriate.

    Motte & Bailey

    With only two of these in the mod, these will be rarely seen. Captured by the Orcs some time in the past, they were originally built by some nameless tribes of Men in the Misty Mountains and much of their architecture remains. Years of Orcish squalor have made them a place to call home.



    Wooden Castle



    Castle



    Fortress



    Strat Map





    ~~~~ Credits ~~~~

    Wooden palisade textures (M&B and Wooden Castle walls) kindly donated by the EBII team.
    TATW of course, for the Orc tents, etc.
