Funny to see more skull on stonghold heroes than on necropolis heroes... XD
In Ashan skulls are a trademark of Stronghold and sadly for Necropolis it is spiders.
This is funny... and also a little bit tragic.
Yes Pawek, I was ironic.
Necro can have some spiders, becaus it's their godess... but if they could have not ONLY spiders...^^
and I am very sad
Wait? You want Skulls to be associated with Necromancers and the undead? Why would you want a crazy thing like that? Everyone knows the spiders are much more associated with the undead than skulls.
@Mirash-, tough day, sugar? ;)
эт я про пауков
Necropolis are undead! Skull and dead should be for them.

I don't see much sense in it but let it be.
I can see the eyes problem, so i tried to solve it:
A lot better!Thank you very much!
Still I prefer black eyed orcs instead of red color.
Good Idea !
Sempai : Not sure for black eyes. They are already in shadow...
Much, much better.
Well done :)
Najakir, I mean in general. Why orcs should be red-eyed? Do they smoke much weed or something?
@Sempai, Shamans do. After all, how would they talk with the spirits?
I actually like the blind shaman thing, but those spikes need to be toned down
Milets, haha, nice catch! Agreed xD
Worst heroes ever. So many ways how to make them blind and they deside to pick tusks on their eyes. And agree with sempai, black or brown would be much better and natural.
having no eyes, are the special features of those models. you people are just complaining to anything new presented. whiny closed mind bastards.
Because having tusks on eyes is so cool now...
you expected shiny helmets? this is the way of the savage.
I expected smth less redundant
@Cleglaw where do you see ppl say they want shiny helmets. I want these designs simple, not over the top. And besides them wearing masks makes it a lot better. Altho i don't really like the face covering that is going on. There are better ways then what they have done now.
maybe black or brown would be much natural, but eyes of the orcs should be red, demonic blood in veins and so on...
just check the brute:
or Cleglaws avatar
I am not a fun of this demon/orc miture but the (his)story goes there, and orcs in hmm now have demnicattitude :-(
In h5 only upgraded cyclopus was red-eyed.
yep, but now the orc miht heroes alredy have red ones :-(
Not bad. But is there any reason for them to be blind?
And with the so many crags in Asan,few of them will survive,lol.
I can see no logic, but someone can explain?
Articun has stated quite sensible explaination. He suggested that they are blind because their other senses are sharpened. Moreover, they are led by spirits, so they simply do not need eyes.
This explanation is quite poor. IMO they take out their eyes just to "sharpen the senses"? Meh. I don't think so.
Look carefully, there are small holes in their masks, I guess. :P
JedynyHex, ye. Perhaps they are orcish hockey players or smth...
in many shamanic traditions in real life shamans were supposed to have a second sight, according to this tradition they don't need their physical eyes(they are considered a distraction) since they are led by the spirits, or se this world throught the spirit world with their internal sight. Blindess was considered a blessing in many ancient tradition (like in ancient greece, Homer was supposed to be blind in some traditions)
ok I can consider it as an argument.
They refuse to see the skillwheel ;)
They'd be really good if it wasn't for the weird head gear, seriously wtf is that?
Other that that I think they're one of the best hero models in H7, love the woman's lip ring :3 and I'm glad they don't wear armour.
PS. Don't forget about the skill system :)
What that thing at the top of the male head gear/ mask... hair?? on both side of the ivory-like object...
P.S. looking for skill wheel system too
moar spikes! >.<
Yep, the mask is really strange, but why not...
PS : Also looking for new skeelwheel.^^
I wonder how many more stuff (town screen/ Heroes models/ creature models/ Limbic entertainment part 2/ April screen shot) Ubi got in hand before facing the skill wheel problem XD
Orcs are all done now
Well, there are still warfare units and hall of heroes left. And there's Necro HoH and warfare too but I think they're afraid to show it :D
I know it´s noting new, but I really dislike the idea of normal magic for Stronghold. Why not be more creative and create something special for them ? Bloodmagic or something ...
Models - the body is ok, but the headcover is very stupid. I know they are supposed to be blind, but the current "horns" look ridiculous imo.
Yea, and btw .... do you know the skillwheel needs a rework ?
Yup, was quite boring to see in h6 orcs with magic when two previous times they were made such unique and interesting factions. Problem I suppose is that you can re-do h6 without taking a lot of h6 things into it.
We should be used to it by now that when you say "face" there will be something ridiculous that makes hero look idiotic at best. Without the masks this is much more how I would depict might heroes(aside staff-totems). Even overall they would look quite nice without the mask/headress.
At least this time we can see the mouth. Unlike most other heroes, if not all.
What is this, anyway? Masked party so nobody can see the hero's true face?
You are seriously complaining about covered faces? All models have that, and the only reason why is because they are standard models for every hero. It's impossible to make unique ones for every hero in the HoH :).
So yes, it's a masked ball in Ashan, we just have to pretend they are actually uncovered as they roam about the map.
I still think it's better than some heroes with H5 models.
I mean, we saw a succubus as a massive Demon Lord and a female, skinny djinn as a tiny fat Wizard.
There are alternate ways to make the hero model neutral. Even in H5, where both male and female took the same model, yet it looked it could belong to both of them.
Actually, a half of H5 heroes also covered their faces: Knight, Demon Lord, Warlock, Runepriest.
Looked like this in-game---http://tawerna.xgame.pl/h/5/img/u_academy/Academy_hero.jpg
And yet it is still better then Ubi has shown so far.
Where the f*ck is LIBRARIAN!!!
He is the only decent magic hero for Stronghold!
Ok, classes are decent- shaman is classic, others sound cool although I would see Dreamwalker and some kind of prophet
Dreamwalker, dreamwalker... yes! I like it! At least they could add some race-specific skill related to that for the Stronghold faction...
Dreamwalker sounds great idea
Dream walker, unfortunately, is a warfare unit.
We also know there is that albino cyclops acting as a catapult of sorts.
+1 for the Dreamwalker
Meh. I swear that eventually I'll stop saying it, but for me the hero designs are all unnecessarily elaborate. I love the use of war paint, bone fetishes, and totem faces--they set a really cool and suitable tone--but there's just so much of that cluttered onto them.
Orcs, like necromancers, aren't a superficial culture; all this kitschy ornamentation feels out of place.
That said, in overall design and skillsets, Stronghold has my favorite heroes yet.
Y'all are doing wicked work here--just keep it subtle. Less can be more. =D
You wont see so much detail in the game
Moshi,do you know how the vampire and lich redesignes are going? How far have they gone with it for now, how much is left and so on? I'm interested! :)
I want this guy to reappear in Heroes 7 ^-^
+1000. Naadir was epic. My favorite character for H5 multiplayer.
He even has long, white hair and a masked face, both of which Ubisoft likes =D
Not to mention green eyes.
The most "necromancer-like" character, and also very fun with his ghost summoning (and powerfull if well used).
He needs manicure badly. :P
Not so sure that that was hair :P
Freddy Krueger in the world of heroes :-)
Freddy Krueger + Jason Voorhees = Naadir
He was quite good in H5
he is nadir, he is not supposed to appear in everygame(turkish style bad word-joke.)
Naadir means something in Turkish?
No, nadir has an English meaning. Clew was kinda self ironic.

Спасибо за перевод. Быстро и качественно работаете.
У меня такое ощущение или художники перестали стараться и применять вдохновение и фантазию что за слепые герои и наездники на василисках с детскими вервернами где огры шаманы гоблины и жёсткие варвары где они???
добавлю от себя будто назло прям ((
неее Дэн, самые жестокие варвары в Аксеоте)
только там варвар в рукопашную мог вынести целую орду)
Ну так Аскеоткие варвары это сбежавшие из гибнущего мира Энротские)
да, но только в Аксеоте у них "яйца выросли", до таких масштабов!)
Просто в Аскеоте жил Чак Норрис - научил паре приемов)
Просто на Аксеоте кто-то решил попробовать нарушить древнюю этику ведения боев - слез с коня и сам пошел в атаку. И тут оказалось, что армия не особо нужна, можно армию титанов и самому одной пяткой валить. И понеслось.

Aren't those architects that start doing their job?
Maybe, but 'architect' as the defensive class doesn't sound catchy. Certainly not for Stronghold.
I have to ask this devs:
Are we going with the more archaic and traditional idea of the Shaman that he/she is blinded to gain second sight? Is that why all the models are hiding their eyes?
Because honestly, with those bones at that exact location, i can't see how they are ablw to see (pun intended).
Of course if the explanation is that we are going with a more barbaric, or traditional shamanistic society and the Shamans are indeed blind, i can accept it.
No,just the devs were feeling bored and did not make eyes...
Interesting idea, yet I think it is a matter of hiding the facial features so that the generic model may suit to any kind of specific hero... Anyway, while I understand this need, I believe the tribal masks of H6 were fancy and adequate to the situation: those bones are just... I lack the words to describe those, those...
Бедалаги. Зачем им глаза закрыли?
А кто их знает, этих орков))))
Раз они маги, то, скорее всего, магией и смотрят на этот жалкий мир.
Ну, или мысли читают.
О, Нэсти ^^
Они типа через магию на мир смотрят и по этому им зрение не нужно, но мне тоже не нравится.
Иллиданы недоделанные, магией на мир смотрят...
