Poll Question:
Best hero model

I was looking around in the table of contents and I noticed that this poll has never been done. So I was just wandering which is your favorite hero model? I mean, I never play dungeon, but the way the warlock looks riding a dinosaur is just awesome.

Responses:
Knight
Ranger
Demon Lord
Necromancer
Warlock
Wizard
Runemage
Barbarian

This was a tough poll to solve, but in the end, I had to say the Demon Lord looks the best. Closely trailing, the Barbarian and Knight. If only the female characters sounded and looked female. Well, it doesn't much matter for the Demon Lord, but Female Knights grunt manly, and all Rangers are male. Thats sexist. I think the Modders are working on it.

It's hard for me to choose the best looking heroes, but I can pick the worst, Wizard  How fast can you travel really riding an elephant? Not even a close contest with Runemage's Mammoths.

Because they are wizards, maybe they are doing some magic to hasten their elephants

But I voted the Knight.  And also I agree and hope that there should be female versions of the models.

Wizard's Elephant owns Dwarven MiniMammoth any day of the week.
Seriously, its more of a overly fat boar than a "mammoth"

It's still a mammoth for the dwarfs. They can't ride creatures taller than those

@sith: I just realized maybe what you actually meant are the Rangers model, not their gender. I take back my comment.

I think the Demon Lords look the best... I mean the whole thick-plate-armour-giant-axe+evil-looking-helmet-with-fire-breath combo does it for them. Warlocks are cool but they look to shemaleish... from the look of the hero he could be both male and female. And yeah we reaaaally need female models... can't be THAT much work. And comeone Knights look reaaally really boring big tin canse on horses... naaaah.

The demon lord looks nice, but Ranger is the coolest! I Love the way they cast spells and the unicorn looks awesome, much better horse model than the knight´s.
The worst male/female hero is the Runemage, it looks quite stupid being a female hero and having such a great beard...

The wizards are nothing spectacular in the sense that the elephants are cool, but the wizard itself appears so small and tucked away. What they should have done, I think, is make him look more arrogant. I mean, there is a sense of superiority in the way he smokes all the time and just seems to be bothered when casting, but the producers could of made him look even more arrogant.

And yes, female counterparts to the models would be nice. No big difference between them necessary, just enough to see that they are...female.

And I hate the demon lord. It makes me think of a pig in armor (reddish, hooves, slightly fat).

The knights are cool because they have their squire near them, and it actually kneels when spells are cast.

The ranger's unicorn has too much gold on it. Come on, it's not a rapper unicorn. But they look nice overall.

Dwarves are too short, but look pretty cool, while warlocks are indeed rather feminine, but also look cool (the lizard compensates).

I think overall I like the necromancer the most (tough I hardly play them). The ragged robes, the schythe worn on the shoulder, the skulls hanging from it, and the horse looks evil too, with the spikes coming out of the hooves and all.

I never perceived the wizard model having an arrogant feel, he's just cool smoking his weed - let's cast something to pass the time

Knights are a bit too simple and cumbersome, there is simply no elegance in them. Tin men..

I too will have to pick the necromancer. Especially the animation when he clenches his fist feels great

Knight: boring, because its just a human with steel on.
Ranger: Better then any other HoMM Model, but still not über model
Demon Lord: They are only cool because they dont use horses
Necromancer: Evil, dreadful and filled with despair. A true necro.
Warlock: I love the lizard, though Raelag's model is the best of them all.
Wizard: It's very good to their theme... But else not really.
Runemage: Hmm? Well, I like it! ... But not the best.
Barbarian: Why did they get something to ride on? They should be running... And they look like the dwarves, in many ways. Like the arm hanging down...

I guess the Necro. has the most feel and good aura about him.. But I think Warlock wins for the more beast looking

Wizards for me. Th idea to put them on elephants is nothing short of genius imo, given the whole eastern, indian theme.
The barbs look nice too siting on a buffalo- a sturdy, strong, tough animal

I like the Necromancer too. The Barbarian is my second choice though.

Hmm..tough choice between Warlock, necromancer and Demonlord. Demonlord is "unique" since he doesnt ride by horse or anything. His tail looks cool and so does the armor. Warlock´s dinosaur looks awesome and scary and I like the cast animation too. Necromancer represent his faction very well. Dead horse, dead man with bone hands and rusty scythe. Necros cast animation is also good. I´ll go for necromancer but other hero models are also very good.

The Necromancer hero model is my favorite. I also like Ranger, Barbarian and Warlock. Others just aren't very good. There is many nice campaign models but tough. There is many things to nag about the basic models but aim not getting in to that

You have to give credit to the knights for having their squire. It's like "look at me, I'm such a bada** I even have some sucker carying my banner for me. How cool am I?"


Oh, and I forgot to mention the barbarians. They look cool. Tough. Probably my second favourite.
