I don’t know if this has been proposed before, but I’m a little disappointed that you haven’t updated the skin of the Khazad-Dum veterans yet. For example, If we take a look at the helmets of these two units, then we can see that the CaH helmet is better looking than the helmet of the Veterans:

http://www.moddb.com/mods/edain-mod/images/veterans-of-khazad-dm#imagebox

http://www.moddb.com/mods/edain-mod/images/create-a-hero-subclass-wanderer#imagebox

Could it be that the helmets of the CaH contain too many poly’s, and that it could be the reason that you haven’t used them for the Veterans? I nevertheless think that you should give the helmets a bit more detail.
Furthermore, it is obvious that you used this art for the Veterans and the CaH model (and it’s understandable, because there weren’t many pictures or art that you could have used back then as references):
https://s-media-cache-ak0.pinimg.com/736x/0c/29/5a/0c295a7619c1542df452a00c34b6e30a.jpg

The problem is not the armor itself, but the issue lies in the colour of the Armor. It’s too blue, although the actual colour is grey:

http://media.moddb.com/images/members/1/762/761504/the-hobbit-dos-dwarf-armour-erebor.jpg

In the last picture you can see the whole image of an Erebor soldier, and when you compare him to the recent version of the Veterans of Khazad-Dum, then, armorwise, you can see that there is quite a bit of difference between them (for example, the soldier in the last picture has a shorter skirt than the Veterans you made, although you did a far greater job at the CaH model). I hope that I’m not asking too much of you, but the current Veteran model doesn’t have the awesome quality that your other models have, and that disturbs me a bit :P. I also translated this post into German and posted it in the German forums, so that everyone in the forum can give their opinion on this matter.

Hi! I've cut some some sounds for old Bilbo's english voice, which is still missing.

Hope you like them!  :) They are downloadable if I did right.

Well,
very nice but it wasn't necessary. xD
There is soundset for Bilbo, but there were some technical issues with implementation.
I suppose that for the next patch it should be fixed.

Is it just me, or dwarven infantry looks really dumb?
- Firts, they have no shields. This alone made me fall into a stupor. How can dwarfs have no shields? It's like Celts without claymores!
- Next is their armor. Now i fully understand you wish not to do iron hill - style armor for them. Got it. In fact, i did not much appreciated this design myself. It is like... so generic dwarven dudes. I almost felt that i have already seen it somewhere. It does not feel unique.
But still. The iron hill infantry at the beginning has nothing on them. Literally! After upgrade they finally get some chainmails. Wouldn't it be more logical to give them chainmails at the start and then upgrade it io some sort of plate armor? This is really nowhere near like dwarves to let their troops enter the fight with no armor. Neither does it contribute with them being actually quite a durable units.
Erebor goes even worse, since after update they get not even chainmail but... gambesons? Really?
I do not mean to offend anyone, but they really look like hobos. Is it like it should be?
P.S.
Men of Dale swordsmen dont have shields as well.

I wanted to ask the Team would it be possible to change the Color of Durin's Cape ,I mean at least to my taste(it is personal opoinon I guess) it doesn't suit him so much,the Green Color I mean,I think Dark Red or Black/Pale Black would be better for him! :)
That at least is my opinion and I was jsut wondering if there is a chacne to change the current Green! :)

Greetings from the Iron Hills! :)

I have watched some replay and saw how mighty looks when ram (which pulls battlewagon) hit enemy with head, so maybe would be nice to add knock back effect to this ram's attack against base infantry units?
What do you think about this? :)

Old Bilbo is REALLY not fitting for Erebor faction ^^

 - What relation does he have with them ? He probably doesn't know Gimli, Thorin 3 and Gloin. Furthermore he never went to Erebor after the Hobbit story, so it's a nonsense.

 - You made him with the same stats than young Bilbo. Huh ? Old Bilbo is "old", he probably can't kill one orc xD


Please make him a mini-hero for Imladris faction, it would be much more fitting  :P

And for the new scout hero of Erebor... perhaps a non canon new dwarf hero ?

He doesn't know Gloin? Now, that's a gibber. But i forgive you this lack of knowledge. ;)
At first you must know, that Bilbo met king Dain, and 5 alive members of Thorin's company settled in... Erebor. So, Bilbo have great connections there.

He wanted to travel again to the lonely mountain (remember?).

Well, we talk about gameplay and balance, or? So we should keep the balance between the scout heroes, that means Bilbo's strength should be as equal as the rest of the scout heroes - like the younger Bilbo.

Zitat

Imladris has already enough heroes. Additionally, Imladris scout hero is Gildor.

Who should be the new scout hero for Erebor? If you have a great suggestion, share it with us. ;)
