I guarantee you the Faceless will be the Champion Unit. The Black Dragon was already introduced as a boss in vanilla (Final campaign level with Blood reputation). It is highly improbable that they will come back as weaker Champion Units.


How about a little bet then?

That was a little different. Cate was a dragon knight and could transform into the avatar of her Patron, in which case Malassa's avatar.

will there be new neutrals? if that wouldn't be cool!! the only ones that come to mind are neutrals in previous games, like halflings and nomads maybe ,since the wizards do exist in deserts, mummies or zombies (blasphemy that there are nowhere zombies to be found and ghould do not count)!

I don't expect anything, but what I would really like to see is Black/Dread Knights, at least 1 kind of oldschool dragon, any of the Academy or Fortress(H3) unit, Devils, Sharpshooters, Enchanters/Monks (at least something similar), Trolls and ofcourse Efreets

Nice to see an expansion! do we get the dungeon and tower? I hope to see new neutral creatures too! But most of all new creatures that never appeared in previous homm games!

Where are the thunderbirds and bone dragons coming from btw? never seen them in the games?

If all the creatures are going to be purple In going to be really ashamed. I hope the creatures will be different in colors too, but still fit well together. Looking in the artwork thread at their designs, it doesn't seem so...

The Thunderbird and the Dragon came with Pirates of the Savage Sea and Danse Macabre DLCs, respectively.

Well, this is my bet atm...for core, elite and champion units (from the top and down).

I think the assasin will be the might hero initial class. The shadow lurker and "matriarch" will be ranged and as a whole im guessing a lot of poison and crowd control. Fast, hardhitting units with versatility but lacking in numbers and defence. Probably quite expensive like in H5.

Sure would miss the hydras though...and i would personally like it if the dungeon faction as a whole went more "lizardy" without stealing the look from sanctuary. They should at least ride little dinosaurs like in H5

A little note for those who do not actually own the compendium, so cannot read the annotations.
The Matriarch Properkheldar proposes is actualy a Hero. Namely the Shadow Sorcerer(or in this case Sorceress).
Also, I highly doubt Minotaurs to be core creatures. I've said this in the patch discussion, the Compendium states, though not is so many words, that Minotaurs are on-par with Centaurs, which would make them elites.
The Dragon shown, is Malassa or an avatar of her(like Cate) so likely not indicative of what Mortal Dragons look like.
And the lady Dark Elf with the rings, may not be a unit. That is the artwork of the introductory page. Most of which feature heroes, some of them feature units and still others feature LeDroit artworks.

Haha. No, after looking into it more, I think I can acknowledge the possibility. After all, Dragons have always been the signature Dungeon champion.

The lady with the rings looks like a bladedancer so I think she could be a unit. Remember that the bladedancers are witches too (or at least in name). I do think that the matriarchs will recieve an "update" to heroes, perhaps the Asssassins or the Riders too. My bets are in two dark elves plus scorpicores, minotaurs, beholders, faceless and black dragons

Bladedancers are male. And I'm not seeing the word witch in their name either?

Just a thought: Since Haven had Glories (which were like Light Elementals), and Sanctuary had Spring Spirits (which were like Water Elementals), I would consider the possibility that they would reuse the Darkness Elemental model for one of the Dungeon Elite creatures.

I sure hope not. Unless they managed to make it look awesome and be original, I would not want that to happen.

They kinda did. The lower part of the faceless look quite a bit like the darkness elemental. That's irrelevant though, because the model reusing in the vanilla game was a budget thing.

the Sisters. I said bladedancers because, well, they're dark elven bladedancers, that's like in their lore.

IIRC in H5 there was a one of those map buildings where you fight a bunch of sisters and it said something like "the witches guard their treasures here"
