The Dwarf Holds (TDH) is a mod for Electronic Arts’ The Battle for Middle-Earth real-time strategy game. The game originally shipped with four factions – Gondor, Rohan, Mordor and Isengard. This mod adds a fifth playable faction – the Dwarves of Erebor.

TDH originally started out as the Rhovanion Alliance mod, started when BFME was released. That project was eventually cancelled in Spring 2008, and a new, more realistic vision was set to put the mod's assets to good use.

The Dwarves are a fully functional faction, with new units, buildings, castles and a unique playstyle. We have done our utmost to make sure the faction fits in with the vanilla factions in terms of completeness and polish. You will find impressive new effects, detailed animations and a lot of things that you probably wouldn’t notice – unless they weren’t there.

In addition to the Dwarves, we have also modified each of the original factions a great deal – new, higher detail versions of almost every unit and hero have been created so that they don’t look out of place beside the forces of Erebor. There are also many new units, heroes, powers and gameplay options for these factions, as detailed in the manual, as well as a vast array of new maps, including the fortress of Erebor.

Should this still be in beta mods or released mods?
Do you count the release as a beta or full version?
