True that. While I don't think there should be significant difference in size between creatures, so far in H7 they aren't iconic (so you can identify each creature in an instant) nor their sizes make sense (golems smaller than humans...really?)

They really need to work on that



can we let them know? or create a fake rumor that even our cats are displeased with the size of some units?

Is it just me or those Golems look like a Space Marines from Warhammer 40k? Especially with those symbols on their shoulders, they just miss their guns.

Maybe Gargoyles have a passive that decreases the speed of adjacent enemy units? Maybe the hero had cast a slow spell? We can't know. But I'm pretty sure this cannot be a melee champion unit's walk range.

What a lot...

First you people want to see units in scale. When they make a human sized Golem you criticize it's size

I for one must say that this screen gave me a nice feeling: this game might actually have a nice atmosphere! I don't know, there's something in the terrain, those gritty colors etc. It gives me a nice vibe.

I'm not a fan of Swordbearer, but he actually fits into this "human" look of Haven. I think this new look comes from the fact that there was a lot of critique about H6 Haven being too "radiant".

PS: Golems really look like Space Marines from Warhammer, or Marines from Starcraft if you like (which were inspired by 40k if I recall). Overall I like their design...

Don't you think that swordbearer prepared to attack two stacks of the gargoyles at the same time because they both on the red squares?

We pretty much know that, even before this picture some of the guys came to conclusion that Swordbearer has sweep attack(I don't know how, but I think that it is said in combat-log in one of those pictures), I know that I've been reading that in some of the Stevie's posts.

Mmmm, models still feel to small to my taste.

Agree there, we barely see them

The swordman in adition to a name change (crusader like old school heroes?) needs to occupy just 1 squares but make that sword shine like crazy and the guy have some divine aura around him.

If the deal here is that he's a powerful chosen warrior that wields a sword, make it look like that sword could tear a city apart. There is no needs to make him occupy 2*2 squares, he just need to look imposing and threatening. As others said, right now he could pass as core.

There isn't even a need to change the model, just add particle effects and change some textures and that is.

Wouldn't these graphical changes (baring the size difference) make him more like an Angel? Making him glow with some power sword sounds like he would be even further encroaching on Angel territory to me, just missing the wings themselves. Isn't that what they are supposedly trying to stay away from?

I think he is fine, look wise. I wouldn't mind him being 1x1 or 2x2, since 2x2 would allow him to attack even more targets, but 1x1 would let him reach areas other champs couldn't.

+1 I like this Haven line-up pretty much because it looks badass crude medieval instead of Holy-Blazing-Glory. As for the name change, I'd really go for Berserk, though he'd need a bigger sword.. Though I'm starting to get used to really couldn't care less about the name.

I think the Swordbearers occupied only a single square in the sample game. I hope they're just playing around with it.
They will make a badass champ unit, and their upgrade can have the shining white sword. Call them Crusaders and they'll be fine.

As for the academy units, I'm not impressed. I don't care much about the gargoyles(I'm like the harpy direction, but they look lame), and the Golems certainly need to appear bigger with that kind of design(which is again, pretty meh compared to H5), even though they shouldn't be 4square units, since they would clash too much with titans.
