The Last Days Evil men troops preview

Hello again. :)

This is the second in the series of troop previews. We'll show you more the closer to release we get.
We still can't tell you exactly when it's going to be released, but it really shouldn't be much longer
Here is our main forum: http://mbx.streetofeyes.com/index.php/board,20.0.html

TLD (The Last Days /of the Third Age of Middle Earth/) for M&B 1.011 is progressing nicely. This time we introduce the baddies, The Evil men you'll get to fight with or against…



The ancestors of the Black Numenoreans were Men of Numenor who were corrupted by Sauron and turned to evil. They lived along the southern coasts in Harad and particularly around Umbar, which was not under the control of Gondor at that time.


The Haradrim had dark skin, hair, and eyes. Some wore red clothing and gold earrings and ornaments, and some painted their faces. They were proud and bold people and were among the forces led by the Lord of the Nazgul that attacked Osgiliath at the beginning of the War of the Ring.


The Corsairs of Umbar were a mix of the native Haradrim and the descendants of the Black Numenoreans - who had been corrupted by Sauron and made settlements in the south before the destruction of Numenor. Under Sauron's direction, the Corsairs captured the city of Pelargir on the Anduin.


Khand was inhabited by people called the Variags. During the War of the Ring, Variags of Khand were allied with Sauron. They fought in the Battle of the Pelennor Fields.


A race of Men called the Easterlings lived in Rhun. The Easterlings fell under the influence of first Morgoth and then Sauron, and they were enemies of the Men of western Middle-earth throughout the Ages. They were broad and bearded and wielded axes. A force comprised of Easterlings and Orcs captured the island of Cair Andros in the Anduin and crossed into the region of Anorien north of Minas Tirith.


The wild men of Dunland were swarthy and dark-haired. Dunlendings fought against the Rohirrim at the Battles of the Fords of Isen and the Battle of Helm's Deep.


Hope you like them. :)

This looks awesome. Just curious though: how available will the black numenorians be? There were very few of them left by the end of the third age, so I think they should be few and far between, but quite powerful.

Well, if we had a TLD subforum of our own here, it'd be ok to have several posts in there. As we don't I just have to put them here. If I'd have put all these previews into one post, it'd be a mess. And one per 6 months isn't really spamming the board, is it?

Quite nice, quite nice. I only have one negative comment, not all of the Haradrim will have the same, native African face will they?

Even just one or two more face textures would make the Haradrim greatly less.. clone-like.

Where did you see they only have one?
Even on the picture several can be recognised.
In all there are 5 different Harad faces, and it's not the native "African" one.

A few of those models and textures seem to be of lower quality then I expected. Were the graphics settings just turned down? Perhaps the new graphics options of Warband have warped my memory of 1.011 graphics.

I couldn't quite tell, their faces all in those nice helmets. That's great to hear, though. Props to all involved.
