Ered-Mithrin unit remodel suggestion

Hello felow Edain mod players, with this topic I am suggestion for a new take on the
visual aspect of the Iron hils alied sub-faction, the dwarves of Ered-Mithrin.

The inspiration for this suggestion came while i was browsing some WETA Workshop concept art of dwarven armors for the Hobbit trilogy. As soon as i saw one concept i immediatly thought that it perfectly fits to the monster slayer dwarf aesthetics of the sub-faction.

The key improvoments  that this redisign offers are the folowing :

-Concept based on WETA Workshop designs for this unit will perfectly fit with the looks of the main dwarf factions as they are also based on WETA designs . ( The looks are similar but still different enough, for example : iron hills helmet compared to this suggested design, both have sharp edges and a more to say blocky look,they are similary fashioned but still difrent in shape, compared to the curent ered-mithin slayer helmet which is more round in design and is quite different compared to the weta dwarf helmets )

- The added facemask of the weta concept art visualy displays why the slayers have imunities from elemental(fire, ice... ) and poision sources. The facemask, together with the whole armor represents dwarven ingenuity in overcoming natural hazzards, it protect the wearer from direct jets of flame, from frostburns and posible animal attacks that would attack weak spots like eyes or the neck.
The curent models have a standard helmet and long beards, which is fine if they would face regular infantry, but as specialised dragonslayers their unprotected heads combined with long beards make them look ill prepaired for facing firespiting enemies and dont visualy represent their imunities.

- The axe/hammer weapon can be made into a 1-hand version, one side use for slashing and cutting of limbs of smaler beasts like spiders, wargs or the ocasional orc and the blunt one for breaking bones and skulls of thick-skined and more formidible monsters such as trolls or drakes. Its dual design further enforces the monster slayer theme as it is more parctical to simply rotate the shaft in batle when the situation requires it, rather then geting your second weapon out in the heat of battle.

Im not sure if i had properly linked the image so i attached the WETA concept as a backup for people in orde to see it.

I do agree that the Ered Mithrin Dwarf armour doesn't really suit their purpose as monster slayers, especially that of Dragon slayers. So yeah you got my vote :).

Like it, I support it too, But I think it would be nice to have them as Elite Unit with Veterans of Khazad-Dûm.

Ered mithrin are already a really recent unit, you have my vote but I don't think they would change them so much little time after the first one

Well if they would consider updating the Ered-Mithrin dwarfs they could combine it with the update  of Thorin the third,which they mentioned once so they could make a dwarf mid-patch like they usualy do between bigger versions of the mod.

I too agre that the Armor and Shield and basically the Designs of Ered Mithrin Dwarves while awesome in their own right doesnt fit for a Dwarves who fight Drakes and MOnsters on daily basis,and fighting them is their main strengh! :) And whiel I do support the idea like whole I want to suggest another alternate design for them like whole! :)


I think this Armo like MOdel and Design,Color and even Mask and all ift perfectly for those kind of Elite Dwarven Unit. :) Hope you guys like it.

As for the Team they have a lot of other stuff to do and the Ered Mithrin Dwarves are good ,so there is no rush for anything...when they want if they want they can do the changes I hope :)

That looks like an awesome design Dain! I especially like the whole armorset, since they need to be very heavily armored to combat against the Dwarves. I'm not sure if Edain will ever change the Ered Mithrin Dwarves, but if they do I hope they will use one of the two proposed designs, or perhaps even a combined one xD.
