It's interesting looking at that first pic and seeing some of the dwarven units we have coming our way.  Looks like their is an axe thrower and dwarven cavalry riding bears.  And I can't tell if that one unit in front is a giant or if it is a high lvl dwarf that is a "large creature".  I'm guessing the wolves will be a new neutral unit, although I could be wrong and they could be part of the dwarven faction.

Yeah, I was worried how the mammoth was going to look too.  I think it looks pretty damn cool.

That does look good. I'm glad to see a new neutral too, being the wolf, and a promise of more much needed neutrals. I'm glad to see the "Dwarf Cavern" terrain too, I guess it'll just be new terrain for subterrainian since I read that there will be no alternate locations beside above and below ground.
It seems to me the dwarfs are going to be pretty good competitors despite lack of variation. It troubles me to see they have very little range/and speed, and no flyers. Well from the looks of it anyway the magma dragon can't fly, and if the dwarf mages can shoot that'll be 3 troops with ranges.
I'm intrested to see what these new specials "we've never seen before" are going to be. I think it needs to be something critical. As an after thought...with a hero casting rune spells and a rune casting unit won't that be alot of wasted resources. Then again in late game it won't be so bad, especially if it's mostly wood and ore like it looks like.

Agreed, this has been a good day news-wise. Also 15 new campaign missions doesn't sound bad at all. And the caravans will return!

Thanks for the tip,the post has been edited!I also tried using but the pictures are too big and cumbersome.
I took a look at the screenshots and I noticed a few things:

In my second post there is a pic of a 15 lvl runemage with stats 8 8 3 4.It looks as if dwarves focus on attack and defence,probably on attack more since this combination has not already been picked.Not much need for normal magic since runes don't require knowledge and power.

The renegades look red and bloody.Darn I'll have to disable my red Archangel and priest mod!Maybe we can reskin the originals for single scenarios?I also wonder if there is any difference stats-wise.

Magma/fire dragons have firebreath so they can probably attack more than one units.

The new fashion dictates that animals trained for war get cool armors too

The red clad dwarf guys are probably berserkers and either:1)are using a rune 2)have a cool rage effect The last one seems more plausible.http://www.the-genies-lamp.com/images/h5_images/expansion/Image9.jpg

As usual there are 3 large units the dragon,the bear rider,the big runehammer guy.At least they seem so.

Seeing as there are no fliers one should be indeed be able to teleport as rumoured.

'In combat, a list of Runes appears above the ATB Bar, and they can be cast at any time before a stack's turn. However, they cost resources rather than mana points.'http://www.heroesofmightandmagic.com/heroes5/heroes_v_expansion.shtml Sounds like a nightmare for necropolis with the rune of exorcism into play(1 sulfur per rune but in late game...)

Finally there may be many dwarf units but the faction looks far from dull.Promising to say the least.

The rumor was one unit could cast lightning and telaport, and it was supposed to be the level 6 unit or the Thane/Warlord. I think the Warlord is supposed to be the same thing as the "Acestral Guardian" that was proposed on a fan made Stronghold, as in he's kind of like a guardian spirit, so I could see telaporting there...but lightning is unlikely it seems the castle is very fire obsessed.
I dought the bear rider telaports (and btw: The black bear armor looks pretty cool minus the helmet as it's very imperial griffen)
Maybe the fire dragon but it does look like it would to me. I could see the magma dragon pulling it off cause it seems more elemental.
On a side note, I very much like the the fire dragons apearance, although it looks somewhat out of place. It also saddens me becuase now I have to scrap one of my favorite characters I was designing for my swamp fortress concept as it looked very simular only green and with weaponry.
It's all good though. Oh, and we should all know that the complaining will never stop... I'd like to be in denial and consider it constructive critism or wishful thinking.

Thank you for the many pics, vlad.  You rock!  I'm very happy to see not a single ice spirit or ice avatar around.  Very glad to see that previous list was completely fictious.

First, thanx Vlad for the amazing shots.

Then, to address your post WilX - don't mistake the two different sources of information. The Level 6 Teleporting / Lightning using unit does indeed refer to this line-up, and I see no reason not to believe that it'll be the Thane who is capable of attacking two units at a time - after all, notice how he holds that giant hammer in one hand and has the fire-effect on the other.

Seing how the Magma Dragon is very unlikely to fly, and the same being try for the Rune Mage, I find it very likely that the Thane will indeed teleport.

And don't bring in any information about the Elder Guardian, that is completely unrelated to this line-up - but it is correct, that the Warlord and Thane will also be large units, and thus larger than ordinary Dwarves.

In one of the pictures you can see that Dwarven hero's skill points are mostly devided betwean attack and defecne - that might make them a good counter against Heaven.
