but I'm not

They're a bit too colorful for my taste, but if they're vicious and nasty I'm fine with them. I wonder what their abilities are.
As for being on water only, they look like they're partially immersed into it. I can't imagine how that would look on land, I hope they won't be hovering awkwardly or crawling like the coral priestess.

is it me or the rightmost mermaid looks like she's singing? (maybe she's just yelling )

Notice that the mermaid was on water in Feb as well, so this neutral we'll only fight on water...

The screenshot looks a little wierd...why are orc troops running towards the mermaids? Is this in battlescreen or a movie clip...cos it can't be on the adventure map..

Probably a movie. The goblin is using his "fun animation".

And yes, they totaly would fit the Sanctuary faction better then the Spring Spirit.
Call em Ningyo and stick em in there, done deal, nobody would question their "appropriateness" for the faction.


I would. Seriously, what link is there, other than water. Both like water, but that's not explanatory enough to make Mermaids fit into Sanctuary.
And where I would certainly not protest the scrapping of either the Spring Spirit or the Ice Maiden, I don't think that shoehorning in a Mermaid would make it any better. I would prefer another Naga, if I am honest. And You'd have to jump through a lot of hoops to explain away the fact that fishy Mermaids are actually reptilian Naga.


The link to water is enought to put them into the sanctuary,I mean there is also no real link between nagas and creatures like kappa,fishmen and the yuki-onna,except for the fact,that they have something to do with water(ok,the yuki-onna only has something to do with frozen water).
Those Mermaids would have fit better into the faction.

The goblin is obviously trying to impress teh ladies with stone skipping.

I like the colors. I wonder if your units can enter shallow water to attack them, because that does look like a battle screen to me. Alternatively, perhaps they are melee units and have to come on land to attack you.

Haha pathetic, i'm losing fate in the team day by day now, but isn't a suprise to me they go for such a simple and boring name, they should get inspired by something different than 8 year old girls playing with Arial and barbies with glowing glory hairs.


Ermmm, so you think they are pathetic because they are named as what they are and not as something else. Because sirens are bird women, not fish women. I understand another creature like the Coral Priestess not named Medusa as the other creatures because a)she is not evil b) medusa  in myth is not a race, is an individual, the (3 persons) race is called gorgons c) the gorgons dont even look like that, they look like HoMM4 one with bronze wings (Damn you Clash of Titans). The Cerberus one is super dumb though

I gotta say I kinda agree with Nightterror here.
I mean, just look at the new ghost for instance:

H2


H4


H5


H6

I just preordered H6 on Steam.
Now I didn't really think about it but I ordered it here at work. Of course I won't be playing the game at work though!

Will I be able to download the game on my home PC when it becomes available? Or will it be an issue?

Also, will I still be eligible for the Beta?

1. Yeas you can download it wherever you like as long as you login with your user on Steam ... but you should read some STEAM FAQ
2. Yes you are ... but still got to wait for the Beta date to be announced

Well, it certainly beats the H4 mermaid:


H3's closest equivalent is the water elemental, which did look pretty cool:

No problem glade to be of help.

On the Mermaid mater i think that the will appear in mixed neutrals on the map and won't be just exclusively for the sea, also in the first screen shot from a couple of months ago they looked to be on the sea shore which in my reckon can be reached by a terrain walking hero ...

  Regarding the name and the looks  ... it's ok there ware some better alternatives for naming but this works to.

Wouldn't an H6 siren be an harpy/fury with different wings?
Also, if the mermaid isn't a different creature/form of the creature we saw Friday, that means Water elemental and Light elemental will look different too.

Nagas and the other Sanctuary creatures are a faction based on their relation to various eastern/asian cultures, not just water. Nagas originate from Hindu/Buddhist mythology, Kappa are from Japanese mythology, Kirin is from Japan/China. It's all very tied together from those cultures wheras Mermaids are more of a Greek thing.

Music and the voices making of video.

I liked it. Anton actor reminded me of a friend of mine (probably cause of the same attitude and eyebrows). Whoever the goblin guy was, I'd invite him to a party ^^

And the music, so epic it be!

Looks like I'll have to buy the soundtrack at the very least.
Or rather, search for it on YouTube when that time comes.

Also, it's official: Goblins are the comic relief and I'm still confused about the name of Svetlana/Sveltana
