Lord of the Ring Total war style in Medieval 2 graphics.
Current version is 1.3, but 1.4 is around the corner.

You need Medieval 2 and the Kingdoms expansion to play it.
It works on Steam as well, but you need a little rename trick to get it to work. On the none Steam M2 you just press the new desktop icon.
It does NOT remove the ability to play M2 vanilla...

Trailer. (Press HD icon after play. If you dont see it D.click video.)

Install/Download/Main Features thread. (http://www.twcenter.net/forums/showthread.php?t=253976)
(All you have to do is D.click the exes and insert the path to the main M2 folder. Rest is automatic. In the Part1/2 rar. There is a fix as well which you install after part 1 and 2. Then you go to the 3 patches in rising order.)

Steam trick.

1. After the mod is installed. Go to your main Medieval 2 mod folder in Steam.
Default (C:\Program Files\Steam\steamapps\common\medieval ii total war\mods)

2. There you should find the names of the Kingdoms campaigns and the Third age folder.

3. Rename one of the Kingdoms campaign folders to name2.
Example: americas to americas2.

4. Rename the third_age folder to the Kingdoms folder name.
Example: third_age to americas.

5. Start the game via Steam and select the renamed campagin (Americas). The Third Age mod should now start.
Example: Revert the names to play America campaign again...

Am looking at giving 1.4 of this a go, 1.3 is a bit old.
