We also got to see the upgraded Griffin and it really looks great IMO.


Yep agreeing with this. Any doubts I may have had about the Griffin's armour are taken away.

The Haven trebuchet is pretty cool 2. The metal bits are cool, if slighty flashy. All the iconography makes up for that.
There would only be one thing that would make this the pinacle of perfect coolness: Catapult crew.

I was getting a little worried that all catapults would just be different colored "holes" put on racially coherent "things"...a red hole and a green hole...sort of fearing a white hole and a brown hole (yes yes i see the references myself). Perhaps it would have been rather expected, since the game is beeing made by black hole...and what some of you call "Ubi hole" so I...ehm...

And the rider.. why doesn't he have a cavalry shield?

After a quick search on Roman cavalry shields I think it's pretty alright.

Lol that made my day

Alright, I promise that the remaining two are not about holes.

Haven units looks great! Love the sun rider and griffins! Can't wait to see the Stronghold catapult, since Elvin hyped it!

Haven Catapult looks solid. But the Necro catapult is pretty sweet, kind of reminds me of the Daedric Siege crawler from oblivion (If it was green). Also, the Lamassu and the Necro hero look pretty awesome too.

But the Sun Rider... what is this thing in his right hand? A ballistic missile?


That is actually a pretty standard knights lance. The kind used in jousts. Lances of that size were a sign of wealth.

Sun Riders are missile silos
A trebuchet that trows glowing horses that trow crudaders that trow ballistic missiles of DOOM! ( not as good as my first one)
It is proven! Crusaders DO fire missiles

See that explosion in his hand?

Yeah, I know what it should look like, but it's too unlancy for me. The rider and the horse look good otherwise. Overly detailed, but good.

My guess? Big globs of necro plague gunk that eats away walls. Like acid, only it makes you get the bubonic plague as well, if you survive.

I too am a bit pleased with the upgrade Griffin's look in the game.  The helmet still looks a bit ridiculous, but its much better than the concept art.

I LOVE the Haven's catapult.  And as someone suggested, it could be even better if it had some troops that came with it and operated it

The ground still looks kind of flat & bland, and the Necro walls rather flimsy :-/   Hopefully that's an un-upgraded defense for the Necropolis.

I don't think the different catapults only throw something different, I think (and hope) they also have some very special abilities that makes them very different from the other.

One could create special (I still call them disciples taken) spots on the battlefield, the other could do mass area damage, the other could spawn new units, the other can move around on the battlefield, another one can shoot spiderwebs that create a sticky area that slows creatures down, yet another one can create obstacles such as the lava-based inferno catapult.

I also think the Ballista is cut, they just created this thing to serve both the catapult and the ballista;s previous jobs, they can target the battlefield AND the castle walls of enemies.

I also hope they somehow merged the ammo-card and the healing tent into one tent-like unit or something like that.


I was thinking the same too. As we saw nothing of them yet and the different catapults now who look ready to deal some damage to enemy creatures as well, makes me think that other war machines did not make it. That would totally suck. I'm still getting this feeling that the game is shrinking.

just woooooooooow at the lamasu and upgraded griffin, awesome & beautiful!

the heroes look so underwhelming compared to the creatures

and is it only me that thinks the sun crusader looks absolutely ridiculous? the human looks like hes nearly twice the size of the other humans, the horse looks like it gonna die from his weight and the lance looks ridiculous

The Sun Rider actually reminds me of a Space Marine on a horse. The iron halo doesn't help very much either.

Him looking twice the size of other humans is probably just perspective. I think he looks good. We'll have to see him from another angle.
