I think the Fortress is good because the creatures are cheap and you can build the Wyverns early in the game giving you a huge advantage.
Your Wyvern powerstack will usually be bigger than any other town's. You can also double build the Wyverns very easily and add even more to your powerstack.

Fortress is built for defense tactics,and not very good in offense.example in offense tactics are barbarians with plenty of reasons and demonstrations.If fortress creaures are compared to those of other castules,the town has an advantage.In this point it is strong....For me a weak town on this matter is necropolis:

skeleton vs. gnoll
0-1
walking dead vs.lizardmen
0-1
wight vs. serpent fly
1-0(though it has regenaration ability)
vampire vs. basilisk
0-1
lich vs. gorgon
0-1
black knight vs. wyvern
1-0
bone dragon vs. hydra
0-1

Due to the necromancers,necromancy ability,and the towns built for survival+very good heroes are all part of necropolis's strong sides!        One of the best towns in h3 meaning number 1,2or3.Fortress has no really improved abilities,except defence and controlling it's own troops,same for the barbarians,who are expert in attack.Has,a very good chance of defeating it's oponents in early games.....wyvern building can be built in day one,if have luck and having lizard den built.Or selecting bron with basilisks is a alternative as well.

Comparing the chaos hydra with other level seven upgraded creatures is a topic too.
the chaos hydra hasn't good attack,but good defense.Low-medium damege..what helps the hydra is it's multi enemy strike.Hydra still can be defeated by archangel,titan,black dragon,ancient behemoth,and maybe gold dragon.Ghosts dragons will die in front of the hydras even if manage to age them..archdevils have no enemy retaliation,but so does chaos hydra.the attack and defense of archdevils are with almost ten points bigger than chaos hydra,but damage is almonst the same,health of hydras are with 50 hp more which is usefull,and think hydra wins.
Fortress looks a bit bad on level 7 creature matter as well.

Heroes of fortress havnen't got spell orientation,as tower,dungeon,necro,inferno,rampart heroes.Neither do stronghold,or castle,though they are might castles,and very good melle units.
Creautrea abilities are very good used in battlesragonflies weaken the enemy ebery time,Basilisks might petrify enemy,mighty gorgons can kill their enemies without dealing damage just by attacking,Wyverns might poison(underpowered ability,but helps) and hydras can strike more enemy stacks at once!

Fortress HAS good abilities in every aspect of the game,but doesn't excell in either of them such as Dungeon,Castle,Tower.Defense is one thing fortress is good at,and maybe it is the thing it is best at....Still fortress isn't the weakest.

Can't really say Fortress is my type of town, I usually play it when I want to experiment, or try something new. It has some interesting units though, and as someone said, Tazar makes for a nice hero with his defence and all, especially considering that fortress heroes tend to get a lot of Defence anyway.
