One Wonderful mod made for BFME 1. I would say I vote it for the best ever, what the maker added was :

A WHOLE NEW FACTION : The Elves

What The Elven people have

UNITS

Sentinels from Woody End 

Overview: These pure-scout units are purchased singularly, rather than by batallion. While they cannot attack, they will remain cloaked when near trees until an enemy is virtually on top of them. Any stealthed unit within their sight is revealed. Built at the level 1 Mirkwood Lookout Tower.

Cost: 50 resources

Command Points: 3 CP

Upgrades:

None



Mirkwood Scouts 

Overview: The basic unit for the Elven faction. They have extremely long range and relatively fast attack, though their attacks do less damage than the Galadhrim. The scouts also suffer from low health points and armour. Built at the level 1 Mirkwood Lookout Tower. Stealthed near trees.

Cost: 300 resources

Command Points: 15 CP

Upgrades:

Flaming Arrows Banner Carrier



Spearmen of the Havens 

Overview: The anti-cavalry unit for the Elves. They have high attack and health points. They also have a toggle shield wall formation. Built at the level 1 Lorien Barracks.

Cost: 600 resources

Command Points: 20 CP

Upgrades:

Forged Blades Heavy Armour Banner Carrier



Riders of Rivendell 

Overview: The Elven light cavalry force.They are the fastest mounted troops in the game. Their trample damage is lacking when compared to other cavalry, but the have high weapon attack damage (possibly allowing for new cavalry strategies). Built at the level 1 Rivendell Stables.

Cost: 800 resources

Command Points: 20 CP

Upgrades:

Forged Blades Heavy Armour Horse Shields Banner Carrier



Amroth's Knights 

Overview: In contrast to the Riders of Rivendell, Amroth's Knights are heavily armoured and deal high trample damage. However, they are also slower than their counterparts from Imladris and their swords don't deal as much damage as the spears from Imladris. Built at the level 1 Rivendell Stables.

Cost: 800 resources

Command Points: 20 CP

Upgrades:

Forged Blades Heavy Armour Horse Shields Banner Carrier



Galadhrim Warriors 

Overview: The Elite unit of the Elven faction (because I like Lothlorien best lol). They are basically the original Elven Warriors of Rohan with slightly less range but more powerful sword and bow attacks (sword attacks will also be slightly faster). Built at the level 2 Lorien Barracks. Stealthed near trees.

Cost: 700 resources

Command Points: 25 CP

Upgrades:

Flaming Arrows Forged Blades Heavy Armour Banner Carrier


Avari Archers

Overview: A unit only available through the spell book power "Call of Cuivienen". The Avari Archers fire arrows at an incredible rate, though they lack range and power when compared to the Galadhrim. They also lack armour. Stealthed near trees.

Upgrades:

None



Avari Bladesmen

Overview: A unit only available through the spell book power "Call of Cuivienen". Wielding either two short swords or a pair of elbow blades, the Avari Bladesmen are deadly fast and do not suffer from a lack of attack power. Like the Archers though, they have little armour. Stealthed near trees.

Upgrades:

None



Banner Carrier 

Overview: Rather than purchasing a Banner Carrier upgrade for the Elves, you will be purchasing Banner Carrier units that can attach themselves to level 1 battalions.

Cost: 250 resources

Screen Shots:

And for the others factions

Eorlingas 

Overview: With the removal of the Elven Warriors from Rohan, the Eorlingas were put in place as Rohan's anti-cavalry unit. They have weak armor and middling attack, but are greatly improved with upgrades.

Cost: 300 resources

Upgrades:

Forged Blades Heavy Armor Banner Carrier



Royal Guards (Infantry) 

Overview: The Elven Warriors have been removed from Rohan and have been replaced with the elite Royal Guards. They are purchased with excellent armor, and thus do not need a Heavy Armor upgrade. They can toggle between bow and sword.

Cost: 900 resources

Upgrades:

Flaming Arrows Forged Blades Banner Carrier


Royal Guards (Mounted) 

Overview: Mounted Royal Guards are a unit that can only be summoned by Hama and Theoden. They are the strongest cavalry available to Rohan, combining high speed, high armor, and high weapon/trample damage.

Upgrades:

None



Morgul Orcs 

Overview: Larger than Mordor Orcs and with better armor, these orcs are only available through Gothmog's "Summon Morgul Orcs" power.

Upgrades:

None


The NEW Heros


HEROES 
Arwen 

Overview: A rather versatile hero with a good variety of special abilities. She has six different skins when on foot and two when mounted which are randomly selected at the beginning of a game. Playing dress-up has become cooler than ever before!

Screenshot 14 Level 6: Loudwater Fury -A magic attack that damages foes in a small, targeted radius. Screenshots 3-5; Redone

Elrond 

Overview: Not a particularly powerful attacking hero until a high level. Elrond's main strength is his ability to make nearby units gain much more experience than normal. Like Arwen, he has two on-foot costumes. Note: Begins at Level 5.

Cost: 3500

Special Abilities:

Level 1: Athelas -Heals nearby heroes and troops Level 1: Leadership -400% experience to all nearby troops Level 6: Vilya -Knocks back and holds target Level 8: Elven Wisdom -King's Favor with a greater radius and much greater effect Level 8: Power of the Bruinen -A magic attack that damages foes in a large, targeted radius.

Galadriel 

Overview: A very powerful and expensive hero. Even her normal attack has a small AoE. Perfect for destroying enemy bases in the late game. As with Elrond, she has two different costumes. Note: Begins at Level 5 and takes more experience to gain rank than normal heroes.

Cost: 5000

Thranduil

Eowyn

She will use her new model until level 3 where she switches over to her Dernhelm costume and earns an armour bonus. I've also given her a leadership ability; thanks go out to Princess Eowyn and HastyNancingEnt for the idea.

Gothmog 

Overview: I found his model and skin while messing around in WorldBuilder. All that I had to do was give him a skeleton. Since he was an easy-to-create hero (ala - no modeling), I decided to put him in the mod. He's basically a melee-only Lurtz more focused on leadership than his own abilities.

The structures


STRUCTURES 
Elven Castle 

General: Lacking the high walls of the other good factions, the Elven Castle is still a difficult base to attack. With more defence plots than any other base in the game and walls that allow for only four choke points, you'll need heavy siege equipment to lay seige on the Elves.
