No, this faction is almost completely removed from the game, with the only creature Devils being present as neutrals. This faction is postponed to later versions.

And it is not Hell or any kind of hellish concept, so I would advise to stop looking at H3SW factions in the same way as on the factions they replace in H3. Heroes 2 concepts are different, and Heretic is not going to be Inferno.

I was asking, because early concepts of Heretic Faction were based on hellish theme.

So Heretic will have Kreegans from MM6-8?

The Devils (shown on my current avatar) are inspired by MM6-7 Kreegans.

All other creatures are not going to be "based over MM6-8 Kreegans" simply because there are no other Kreegans that those.

The development of Heretic faction favors some pagan concepts from different cultures, which were the ultimate basis for Christian concepts of devil spawn. However, the final form of the Heretic faction is currently unknown and the development is postponed until later releases (2.0), which are also to feature new campaigns and some brand new gaming aspects.

Actually, according to MM9, Succubi are also a species of Kreegan. And most likely Venom Spawns from Heroes IV.

Xeron was Half-Human and Half-Kreegan. His Father was Erathian Knight and his Mother was Succubi(she seduced knight).

could you tell us which percentage of game is finished? or what is missing to put it end.
Maybe you need to animate some monsters or spells in combat, i think you have already all the graphics of interface and adventure objects

In terms of current objectives for v0.8, 99.4% is finished, if that brings the situation any clearer. Time is running out.

I still need to finish the Dervish townscreen and create the preview video. That would stand for 0.1%. Another 0.1% stand for the underground landscape objects. Some other promo materials, some nasty bugs needing to be fixed, some adjustments and graphical assets requring polishment are left. That's how it goes.

And no, our adventure objects are mostly crude and unfinished, and so are the portraits or townscreens, but we don't have time to fix all of them.

Sorry, I didn't read that part about uploading more pictures on Saturday. That's why i deleted my post. But screenshots which I uploaded were taken mostly from old TSW forum and df2, so you can easy find them.

Listen, I don't know about the progress of the Inferno town screen but I'd suggest the Heretic faction from this mod to have a towns screen reminiscent of the Colony Zod from M&M7.

Such strong and bulky reference would not feel good for players who are not familiar with the real nature of the Kreegans. Heroes 2 is a cartoon game with a rather simple concept. For now, only one building might (or might not) be based on Colony Zod in exterior, as well as another one might (or might not) be based on the Hive itself.

There should be plenty of careful and less eye-striking references for those enlightened.

Thank for the nice comments. I appreciate them a lot and glad you found this read interesting

The second and final part of the history of H3SW is now done Link. It covers the year from the release of the public v0.7 beta in 2013 till today where another release might be close. I have also updated the first part (Link) with more material, so be sure to check that again for some rare "artifacts".

Wow! Thank you so much for putting up that whole article and the second part! It was a super interesting read and I'm really impressed that you managed to include so many details that I almost already forgot about.

I'm really thankful for you guys mentioning what I did in the early years for the mod, I was only around 14-16 at the time, but it was a huge part of my life and I spent countless hours It's so funny seeing all the graphics I made back then (some are shockingly bad ahaha). A couple of years later I'm making a living from my own personal art and I'd definitely say the mod helped me to fuel my interest in it, even what I create these days is extremely different.

I can't believe it's been 10 years! I feel so damn old, it only feels like it's been 2-3 years!

All the best guys!

What I created for the Heretic faction a couple of years ago was mainly for fun, I liked the graphic of Heroes 6 so I recreated them in the pixel style, but obviously none of them fit the game plus the lore ahaha. I was just a teenager who wanted to have as many creatures in the mod without understanding the lore or reasons behind it.

The first (real) playable version is coming 2018.


So next version is coming out within the next two months?


I must say that not working for the mod for a couple of years then playing with the changes and additions that the other guys have done was totally worth the wait. I wouldn't have been able to do so much in the last years even if I had the time. I think people need to appreciate that these guys are doing this for free, they have family, friends, busy jobs etc. I honestly don't know how they do it. People moaning when it will be finally released only triggers the people that work on the mod and makes them feel unmotivated so it's better to keep quiet

Hey, Kivo. Nice to hear from you again

Thank you so much for your kind words! It pleases me to know you liked the articles

You played a very important role for the project. You gradually took over for Kalu when he was missing free time to continue the mod, then you added your amazing (even more amazing your young age considered) pixel art to create new creatures, converted and updated the interface and got Kegolo on the team. You made way for the goal that still stands today, which is to expanded Heroes II by using mechanics and features from both Heroes II and III. You and Kegolo released the 2013 public beta which attracted much of the current team to join the project, so I would like to thank you very much for this effort!! I am happy we still hear from you every now and then, and that you like the work we do.

Also, thanks for the nomination Galaad! I appreciate it a lot
