Here are a few good mods that I definetly suggest for those new to the LOTR: Battle For Middle Earth genre. If you look in the right place, you'll find diamonds among the rock! :D

Hero Mod: This is a great mod that adds lots of new features to the game. The most obvious, and largest change, is the addition of several new heroes, and hero abilities. Some of the new heroes include Isuldur for Gondor, Sauron for Mordor, Ugluck for Isengard, and Haldir for Rohan.

Mordor Sauron (retextured)

Cost: 2000 (The One Ring costs 10000) Health: 5000 Melee Damage: 400

Special abilities: Dark Lord (Leadership bonus to nearby troops) Fear of Sauron (enemy units fear Sauron) Power of the One Ring (massive damage to surrounding units)

Description: Sauron initially costs only 2000 but without the One Ring purchased at Mordor citadel his special abilities are locked, he cannot attack anything, and his armor is very weak. Once the One Ring is purchased (costing 10000), he becomes unstoppable. However, Isildur's Narsil attack can take him out of the game permanently by one hit. Nazgul (x3)

Cost: 4000 Health: 2000 Melee Damage: 100

Special abilities: Screech Fell Beast (toggle on-foot and fell beast) Black Rider (toggle on-foot and Black Rider) Khamul the Eastering (leadership bonus to nearby Easterings, Khamul only)

Description: Nazgul can be seen as lesser Witch-king, but he can ride a horse from the beginning of the game so he has better mobility. Nazgul can ride on a fell beast once the spell is purchased in the spell book. One of Nazguls is named Khamul and he has a leadership ability which influences only Haradrims and Easterlings in Mordor. I fixed the weird animations of my mounted Nazgul, such as paper-like legs, that were seen in v1.2. Witch-king (the model is slightly modified)

Cost: 6000 Health: 3000 Melee Damage (Sword): 150 Ranged Damage (Mace): 200

Special abilities: Screech Witch-king of Angmar (leadership bonus to nearby troops) Morgul Blade (poisoned Morgul blade attack which weakens the armor and speed of the target for 10 seconds) Use Mace (toggle sword and mace) Fell Beast (toggle on-foot and fell beast)

Description: Witch-king is a very powerful hero unit. His mace attack is very effective against normal units but his sword will do more damage against heroes and buildings. Poisoned Morgul blade attack will make it easier to hunt enemy heroes. He can ride on a fell beast once the spell "Breed Fell Beast" is purchased in the Mordor spell book. Witch-king has a set of new voices (send forth all regions, I will break him, slay the wall, etc.). One thing that needs to be paied attention is do not try to duel Eowyn :) Isengard Ugluk

Cost: 1100 Health (Rank 1): 1000 Melee Damage (Rank 1): 60

Special abilities: Uruk-hai Captain (Rank 1, speed bonus to nearby uruks) Carnage (Rank 3, identical to Lurtz's carnage) Supper (Rank 5, heals nearby uruks)

Description: I made Ugluk by modifying the model of Lurtz. Ugluk can be seen as lesser Lurtz because he cannot use a bow. However, when he reaches at rank 5 he gets a heallng ability ("Looks like meets back on the menu boys!"). It heals less amount of health and has narrower range than Aragorn's athelas. I also gave Ugluk a coule of voices of the film. Sharku

Cost: 1100 Health (Rank 1): 600 Melee Damage (Rank 1): 50

Special abilities: Warg Captain (Rank 3, leadership bonus to nearby warg riders) Train Warg riders (Rank 6, grants experience to warg riders)

Description: Sharku is very vulnerable compared with other heroes. He is especially weak against arrows and he only has 600 health at the beginning so you have to be careful at using him. However, once he is paired with warg riders he will give them a good leadership bonus (rank 3). I tried to give him new voices but unfortunately I couldn't find any usable voices in Two Towers. Rohan Haldir (reskinned)

Cost: 1700 Health (Rank 1): 800 Melee Damage (Rank 1): 40 Ranged Damage (Rank 1): 50

Special abilities: Toggle weapon (toggle sword and bow) Wounding Arrow (identical to Faramir's) Captain of Lothlorien Elves (Rank 5, leadership bonus to nearby Elven Warriors) Summon Elven Allies (Rank 8, summons a group of third age Elven Warriors)

Heavy Armor (Rank 5, changes his armor from Lothlorien cloak to golden armor of Helm's Deep automatically).

Description: Haldir is an only hero that I created for Rohan. This Haldir is more updated than Haldir mod version 1.2 found below. He also has a set of new voices. He changes his appearance automatically when he reaches at rank 5. He used to summon a group of second age Elven Warriors in v1.2 but now he summons third age Elven Warrirors instead. Gondor Isildur (reskinned)

Cost: 3000 Health (Rank 5): 1800 Melee Damage (Rank 5): 110

Special abilities: Prince Isildur (leadership bonus to nearby troops) Sonic Blade (Rank 6, powerful sword skill) Narsil Attack (Rank 8, special ability against Sauron) Last Alliance (Rank 10, summons an army of second age Gondorian soldiers)

Heavy Armor (Rank 5, changes his armor from Lothlorien cloak to golden armor of Helm's Deep automatically).

Description: Isildur is the best unit to kill Sauron. His Narsil attack can take out Sauron instantly, but he needs to reach at rank 8 first. Narsil attack is not really effective against other units/heroes/structures since the weapon takes longer time to fire, so use it only against Sauron. I personally like Sonic Blade skill. It's completely my imagination skill but it looks cool. He becomes able to summon an army of second age Gondorian units when he reaches at rank 10. They appear as two combo hordes, and they can be splitted into fighter and archer hordes. Gil-Galad

Cost: 3000 Health (Rank 5): 1800 Melee Damage (Rank 5): 120

Special abilities: High King of the Noldor (leadership bonus to nearby troops) Glorious Charge (Rank 6, Gil-Galad gets great armor bonus butt becomes very slow) Vilya (Rank 8, use the ring of air to attack enemy) Last Alliance (Rank 10, summons an army of second age Elven soldiers)

Description: I spent prolly the longest time on Gil-Galad than any other heroes. Unlike Theoden, Gil-Galad's Glorious Charge does not influence nearby units but only himself. Vilya is a powerful magic attack which throws three wind-shots which bursts when they are hit. He can summon second age Elven units: Elven Heavy Armors and Elven Archers. Like Gondorian units, Elven allies appear as combo hordes and they can be splitted into heavy armor and archer hordes. Elrond

Cost: 2000 Health (Rank 1): 1000 Melee Damage (Rank 1): 50 Ranged Damage (Rank 1): 60

Special abilities: Toggle weapon (toggle sword and bow) Herald of Gil-Galad (Elrond gets more experience when he is near Gil-Galad) Greater Athelas (Rank 4, heal nearby all friendly units) Arrow Wind (Rank 7, identical to Legolas's)

Description: Elrond didn't have any special abilities in v1.2 so I added some. Unfortunately I didn't have time to create sort of original abilities, so I just gave him Athelas which is better than Aragorn's (it should be), and Legola's arrow storm.

There's a basic overview of the new heroes added, check out the site to see the pics!

Middle Earth MW: Another great site with many awesome mods, particularly the Clord's AI mod, which greatly enhances the intelligence of your enemies. I recommend this mod as a defenite must for anyone who's out for a real challenge in Skirmish Mode, or the Campaign.

Middle Earth Center: Yet another good site, home to many mods, skins, and maps for BFME! Here, you can find many good maps, along with blood mods to make your game a bit more gorey! :evilgrin:

I'll be adding more specific mods later that I find, such as Rhonavian Alliance, for example. Happy Orc Hunting! :D
