While we are still working on development of alternative creatures, some creatures are getting outdated. Since few of them will be remade from scratch we will be sharing them as we did with dryad in case someone would want to use them in their mods. It only applies to defs which is no longer to our standards and differ a lot from final version.

Here is one of my first creatures, illithid. I am bit ashamed as it was one of my first models I did few years back when I was still new to 3D, but maybe someone wants it.

Happy modding

Thank you!

That quality level seems to match up the one of the game, at least for me. Not only it will overshadow the rest of the units, but you would ve finished a lot more instead of constantly raising the quality cap level. anyway, good job as usual! i cant wait to try out the final versions of what's being planned by the polish community

i was never a fan of the original h3 angels; they never looked right, to me. being that the kreegans aren't actually from Hell, it doesn't make sense to have angels in the game(and even moreso, a hatred between the creatures. you would think an angel, of all creatures, would KNOW if a creature was from Hell or not, lol. and thus, logically have a reason to hate them).

i'm curious to know what the human replacements have, ability-wise. they obviously can't have the same abilities as the archangels(resurrection), so i wonder how that powerful attribute will be replaced. will they still give +1 to morale, as well?

Actually aren't angels ancient robots made to fight Kreegans? Thus why they hate them.

Actually they aren't. They are no robots or cyborgs. In fact they are wizards' experiment much like minotaurs, beholders and cockatrices.

The problem is that you have the Ancients' Universe first introduced with Might and Magic RPG's where you have creatures from Dungeon and Dragons RPG System but with different origin and than you have Heroes of Might and Magic games which are Might and Magic Mythology in essence with Earth Mythology as coverage. The result is a bit messy.

Edit: They are experiment of the Wizards of Bracada and if I'm not mistaken, the source of the information for there origin is Might and Magic 7. Also the Shooting Star is in Enroth and not in Antagarich (this is the story of Might and Magic 6). Maybe the Kreegans landed also in Antagarich or they moved there from Enroth (most probably the later but in both cases its not clear how they missed the continent of Jadame). Most of the Guardians are actually cyborgs with maybe the only exception for which I know of The Oracle of Enroth.

PS: Now I will try to find the source information for Angels origin and then post it here but it will take some time.

actually bear in mind they are probably cyborgs or at least something outlandish enough to give a fantasy genre purist a heart attack (source: NWC interview), bear in mind they only appeared in Erathia mysteriously after the Kreegans fell down in their shooting star (source: Long Live the Queen) so they are actually not a creature of the wizards or an invention of them unless the ancients are a Wizard cheers lol

Well considering this: http://mightandmagic.wikia.com/wiki/Guardian I'd say it's pretty sure they are probably an artificial lifeform.

Quote:
"Guardian" is an umbrella term used to refer to several variants of the Ancients' servants. Generally, their only universally common features are their sentience and technological origin (...) were built to facilitate physical defence aside from other tasks - they resemble mortal races, and appear to scar and bleed when harmed.


And here http://mightandmagic.wikia.com/wiki/Escaton it specifies "He was sent to Jadame to destroy the world because of a rumored Kreegan attack." -
The name itself is a reference to christian mythology of the End Times so the association with angels is not a longshot at all: www.miapic.com/diccionario-escaton-eschaton
Not to mention the "Sword of Judgement" and all that, which is know to be ancient's technology...

hey mate that's great albeit bear in mind I have all of the text of MM7 in a folder here and it has zero lore of the angels that I can find, the only bit of any lore about angels in those games is in MM8 with the angelfeather cloak lol

also bear in mind that what is most probable is that the shooting stars also fell in Antagarich, the text hints there were multiple shooting stars, one which fell in Blackwoode and the other one fell in Eeofol (source: Nether Gods and Armageddon Blade) cheers lol

sorry for offtop btw, to not distract Nephretes amazing work let us go to the lore thread cheers lol

You might want to double check your own sources, Stevie.

So the first thing you think of when you see that quote from JVC is that the angels were cyborgs, not that they weren't. Alright.

I am sorry, but could you move the discussion elsewhere? This topic is not about angel's origin in Might and Magic. I would prefer to hear thoughts on paladin I've shown recently.
