    I would definitely check out the Extended Greek Mod(XGM) if I was you. Check it out in the RTW Hosted Mods Forum right here.

    Rome:Total Realism for, well realism, RS for Romans and XGM for Greeks and Carthage. Links in my sig.

So, Jeff Beck pops his head 'round the door, and mentions there's a little sweets shop on the edge of town. So - we go. And - it's closed. So there's me, and Keith Moon, and David Crosby, breaking into that little sweets shop, eh. Well, instead of a guard dog, they've got this bloody great big Bengal tiger. I managed to take out the tiger with a can of mace, but the shopowner and his son... that's a different story altogether. I had to beat them to death with their own shoes. Nasty business, really. But, sure enough, I got the M&Ms, and Ozzy went on stage and did a great show."

    LOTR-TW is only for A:TW so FATW is what your looking for.

    FATW covers only men; LOTR-TW looks better but it crashes very often

    The Fourth Age is definatly what you are looking for.

    If you want to try out FATW you'll need FATW - The New Shadow v2.0b (here), the v2.5 patch (here), plus the music pack which can be found in the same thread with 2.0b (it is optional, but we highly recommend it). The mod is also entirely modfoldered, so it won't interfere with your copy of vanilla, or other modfoldered mods.

    Also check out our sub-forum here at TWC.

    It depends on what you want. Do you wish to play in the films, which is accurately depicted by LOTR-TW with a lot of different races and heroes.
    Or do you wish to play in the universe of the books with those races of men.
    FATW has a lot of human units with options for more diverse men, it draws more on the books and is more in tone with the Tolkien universe.
    It really depends on what you want.

    Thanks
    You can buy Alexander:TW and play with both, LOTR is based in the end of the third age, FATW is based in the fourth age, so you can start with LOTR and continue with FATW.
    FATW is in a more advanced stage of development so it's more stable and complete.

    In LOTR you have the majority of the characters present in the movies (Aragorn, Gandalf, Galadriel, Frodo, Sauron Saruman,...) and you can play with orcs, goblins, men, elves and dwarves.

    RTR is focused on realism to a lesser extent than EB, but without EB's excessive scripting, which really slows down the game. RTR also heavily slows down battles and the campaign for more realistic kill rates and conquering speed. The idea is to more accurately simulate how empires grew in real life. Personally, my computer can't handle EB and I hated RTR. The battles were just way to slow for me after playing a couple years of vanilla. So if you like vanilla, you might be better off trying a slightly less radical approach. I play Extended Greek Mod, which is a great all-round mod, but I would definitely try out EB and RTR too see if it suits you.

    Other mods to try are: Roma Surrectum, XGM, SPQR, and maybe Fourth Age total war if you are a LOTR fan.

    All of these seem to fit you're needs (in your first post), although if you want to try SPQR, it is 0 turn, so don't play it if you don't like 0 turn recruitment.

    I love SPQR total war, it brings warfare to an epic level by recruiting up to 9 units from each settlement per turn (dont worry you stil have to pay and upkeep them) It focuses on battles and realisim, it starts in 215 BC with Hannibal having just marched through Italy and devistating Rome, there are basically the same factions from Vanilla, but they all have a dramatic facelift, for example thrace is no longer the apitamy of a horrible faction, you see it often conquering most of the black sea territories, and you often see hordes of Dacians heading south and fighting Macedon. Speaking of Macedon its phallenxes are all now incredibley well balanced. Plus the graphics= arty:
