This map lets you defend the Mini version of Minas Tirith by a hoard of orcs. But in this case macemen. Your enemy for this siege is Duc Truff since he is the master of macemen. There are over 1000 macemen which you will have to defeat to defend the city of Gondor.
Note: I porposely didn't make the walls of Minas Tirith perfectly round because I wanted all the archers to get a chance to fire.
IMPORTANT: Allthough this map is marked "Siege" you will find it in the "Invasion" section of Stronghold.
Just did one of these LotR sieges, and now I'm doing another. This one looks to be good as well, but unfortunately it falls flat on its face :( Let's see why....
The castle, at first glance, looks like it's going to be pretty defendable. You enjoy yourself using catapults at the enemy, shooting with archers... the macemen start attacking your walls, get through the first barricade after a little while, then.. oh, whats this? They are all running to the bottom of the screen! They run *straight past* 4 walls and straight up into the keep!?!
Your walls have gaps in them at the edge of the screen. Try adding cliffs at the edge or something to stop this. It's all nicely done but nothing without playability.
Impossible to defend. Basically.
The fortress looks nice. The men are well set out. It looks cool. But maybe add some cliffs or trees or something down that hill.

Just a big hill. Add some eye candy.
Nothing great here. Try adding something a little extra.
