    The breastplate looks almost exactly like Isildur/Elendil's from the film. Not the decision I would have made if I was trying to establish distinctive visuals for each race. But that's just me.

    One reason I don't really like having a cultures with heavy focus on cities and etc is because if your army is using different equipment, you have any idea how much harder it is to equip the army?

    Standardise equipment solves this issue alot. M2 TW can get away with units with different armor is because the medivial age don't have a standardised army to speak.

    That's why it's usually harder to field a large army in the medivial age as compared to the roman era.

    Elrond never wore a breastplate in the movies. He's right, it looks like Elendil's (and later Aragorn's at the coronation) breastplate.

    Are you going to add more kinds of spearmen and swordsmen? Maybe change the Elven Spearmen to Noldor Spearmen and add Mithlond/Lórien Spearmen and Dismounted Rivendell Lancers? And maybe add "Lindon Champions", wielding dual blades
    Elves will definately be my first campaign, I hope they turn out as awesome as it looks like

    Elrond did wear armor in the first movie, in the prologue(the last alliance of men and elves).

    It looked a little something like this: http://www.alleycatscratch.com/lotr/.../Elrond_sk.jpg

    But that isn't a breastPLATE. Besides our point is that the ones in the screenshots look like Elendil's. NOT Elronds. Combined with the Gondorian helmets and upper arm armour it feels slightly odd.

    True, because the actuall armor looks somewhat like leather, and then theres the chain link mail. I have a question, when will this mod release? I have rtw and was going to get MTW2 then kind off fell out of intrest with the games until i found this site, and now i use the SPQR mod for RTW. I may get MTW2 just for this.
