I do like that they integrated wolf units into the Haven army.
Yeah that's a sweet move !
perfect core lineup with great look
Thay all look fantastic.
looks promising, love the attention to detail and how the "wolf" theme flows on the units while still keeping them soldiers of the empire. Congrats for maintaining coherence between these units and the ones from H6.
I think it would be cool if at some point further on, maybe through a DLC or something, we could chose the skin of the units: griffin, stag, bull etc.
That would be really cool, but I don't think it's going to happen. It's a matter of cash, however. So if a lot of people will declare they want the skins, they will make them. :D
yes please, i was thinking the same. wouldnt it be awesome to choose duchy themes? perfect to think.. but i wonder if we are too optimistic to want that? i mean, this is some serious effort.
It is a bit fare fetched, but not impossible. We are after all talking just about skins and not complete 3D models. A DLC or goodie pack might be appreciated. Either way, it's an idea that the devs should consider... I think it would give a more personal feel if we get to chose the army theme.
Who knows maybe further on...
_Great idea, but I will continue talking about the fact that we choose the units in a ratio of five (5) options for three (3) final choices and so proportionately. That way everyone could vote for their favorite creatures and then the most voted would become part of the game. I was grateful that you have perfected the ability of the server and for providing us such interactivity. Regards to all!
Wow, Haven is going to be really cool this time. Not like in H5 and H6, where they were a bunch of sanctimonious knights in fancy armors.
Ironman-marksmen :) how can i say no to this?
Anyways i always find wolf theme superior to griffin theme. DoC artworks was way cooler to me. I'm glad to see that this also same in H7 arts.
Those guys are like Spartan versions of Griffins. Fierce and charming.
I'd say more "Roman" than "Spartan", but that's semantics. Bottom line, I agree with your position. It's a refreshing change of pace with Haven - simultaneously stripping away the increasingly gaudy aesthetics and making things more badass overall.
The legionnaire upgrade looks great!
I like it very much especially the silverback
The legionaire and the marksmen armour have greek/roman feel to them
i agree very greek/roman :-)
The Silverbacks should have more armor than the Dire Wolfs for two reasons:
1.The Silverback its the upgraded version of Dire Wolfs.
2.The Holy Empire lineup usually wears heavy armor.
I think going for wolfs was the worst choice, any other would be better, simply they never belonged to haven. But if there is no chance for changing them, at least make them look better, as someone pointed out they look like cerberus but just with one head, which is not a complement
It is evident that lots of effort is given to faction "redesign". For some reason old design (even thou loved by fans) is considered obsolete. I hope same amout of effort is given to improving game mechanics.
So, i guess the wolf Duchy is more reliable in their own strength rather than religion and use their emblematic animal in battle as well. This is also seen by the new dress code with the furs etc. It is nice to see Haven changing a bit and paying tribute to the previous additions in the series. Also the return of the sword bearer is also a nice touch. Makes humans much more reliable to themselves. Dunno how the griffins are gonna be replaced if truly they will be absent.
They said once there are no griffins in the common line up.
Instead we have male clerics and female clerics (WOW)
No griffins? sorry but that's a fail :( griffins belong in heroes!!
Griffins are in the game but as special campaign units for Ivan.
So do Wolfes( H1-6) ;)
Please stop repeating the flame war from Elven threads.
@Manutero we still don't know what female unit is so don't be hateful.
im not saying the wolves dont belong in heroes, i just said that the griffins do. had nothing to do with wolves not belonging in heroes ;)
and im not repeating the flame wars from elven threads literally just used it as an example ;) get me ? ;)
As a further point about Wolf Duchy relying more on their own strength, it's noteworthy that one of the Champion options for Haven is a sword-wielding (oversized) human - and since Champion units are an either/or situation, that means that Haven could limit their divine influence to their priests.
sentinels and archers look almost the same
As they should be... they are the back of each heaven-army. So they need a kind of... uniformed armor.
And i don't like the name of the upgraded Dire Wolf "SILVERBACK", silverback is a gorilla not a wolf
Amazing job. Please make angel be a male! :)
And please dont forget to put paladin:)
the angel is male man..
I think paladin will be the current swordbearer's upgrade.
Yes Angel is male this time ;)
Please remove this stupid dogs and give us griffins.
I like the Wolves but agree griffins are needed! Have one of the swordsmen or women ride em!
Good luck. Looks like the whole Haven army has wolf 'branding' on all their armour/shields so I'd imagine they want to continue it with the unit.
Yeah right, especially as it seems it's the Wolf Duchy army...
@jhogan251 maybe have some wolves riding some women?
