Ice Bolt magic/ranged attack(*Research being done currently*) - Summon Guards: At the beginning of a battle, level 1 guards will appear in any empty spaces around all stacks of Santa Gremlins; type of level 1 guard is the faction of the owner hero, and the number of guards in each stack is equal to the number of Santa Gremlins they are protecting; the Level 1 guards can only retaliate; once the Santa Gremlins have been destroyed, they take on the qualities of a normal unit - Give Gift: There is a small chance that Santa Gremlins will give their owner hero a random artifact after the hero wins a battle
Soul Gatherer: enemies killed by Ghosts in battle become Ghosts themselves and are added onto the attacking stack - Immune to Fear - (*Ghosts cannot be recruited from an external dwelling; they only appear in a demolished town after six days)

Tips
Santa Gremlins are a unique blend of creature. To help these funny guys get into the Christmas spirit, stay away from units with the Breath Attack skill such as Firebirds or Black Dragons. Besides that disadvantage, Santa Gremlins are effective ranged units. They never run out of ammo because their attacks are part magic, and they come with free guards that can serve you if the stack they are guarding is defeated. Don't try Teleporting them though; they are rooted to the spot until some walking space is made.
Ghosts are not as dangerous as they used to be, but a large stack of them is still a warning nonetheless. But, if you cannot get a decent sized group of them at once, I suggest on using a different creature instead, or attack a creature that has used its retaliation for that turn so there is no risk of losing any.

The Fire Messenger is the most offensive type messenger because of its high Attack and Damage. It has good Health too, so its uses are fairly widespread, but it would be best to stick to the basics in most cases.
Earth Messengers are more defensive than other messengers, but that is about it. They are just as slow as the other messengers, so this leaves Earth Messengers as the least useful of the four because the extra Defense does not rival the stat bonuses the other messengers have.

Tips
Air Messengers, while not having particularly high stats, do get more Speed than the other three messengers, which gives them a slight advantage over their slower cousins.
Water Messengers have some extra Health to help them stay in a fight. This qualifies the Water Messenger as second best, only beaten by the Fire Messenger. Because of the Health advantage, Water Messengers can melee and defend ranged attackers more effectively than the other three messenger units.

Tips
The Gorynych is a combination of a dragon and a hydra, making it extremely formidable in any combat situation and against any enemy. It has rather low stats for a level 7, but good Health, and its special abilities well make up for the low stats. Use the Gorynych's No Retaliation to hit stronger enemies for good damage, or decimate some ranged enemies all at once. It can fly to escape from danger or cause some. Despite its imperfections, the Gorynych is probably the closest thing to a perfect unit.
The War Zealot is well named. A small increase in Attack and Speed and a decent boost to Health makes the War Zealot an even better ranged attacker than before, and now allows it to melee more effectively while resisting hostile spells. The War Zealot basically has fewer chinks in its armor than the regular Zealot does.

The Arctic Sharpshooter is similar to a regular Sharpshooter, but more efficient against other ranged units. This is mostly because of its Air Shield, which cuts all ranged attack damage against it in half. The Arctic Sharpshooter is slightly more offense-oriented than the other two, and is also a little faster.
The Lava Sharpshooter can take on melee attackers much more effectively than the other two can. Its Fire Shield makes melee attackers take damage while they attack back with No Melee Penalty. Its also a slightly more defensive Sharpshooter than the other two. Not a bad mixture of abilities, huh?

Tips
Hell Steeds are quite interesting creatures with their fire-based specials, low Attack and Defense, but good Health and Damage. Whenever Hell Steeds attack an enemy, the ground is set ablaze, dealing additional damage to all units in the Fire Wall. This is especially useful against ranged enemies, who will have to move to get out of the Fire Wall to prevent them losing extra health, and therefore lose their attack for that turn. Another useful time to use it would be when a hole has been blown in an enemy wall during a siege. Have the Hell Steeds attack anyone coming out and the Fire Wall will pop up, forcing them to take damage if they come out.
Nightmares are extremely dangerous to level 6, 7, and 8 units because of their Improved Death Stare ability. This allows them to kill several units in a stack after every attack no matter how strong it is. Nightmares have rather low Attack and Defense skills, but their damage and Health make up for it in tough battles.

Tips

Tips
Sorceresses are rather strong units. Like Enchanters and Faerie Dragons, Sorceresses can cast spells. But Sorceress spells are mostly 'debuffs', which means they lower enemy stats and hinder their combat ability, instead of the Faerie Dragon's offensive spells and the Enchanter's 'buffing' spells. The number of Sorceresses you have determines the spells they can cast and the strength of those spells. Also, the Sorceress has a ranged attack, so the magic spell effects occur as part of her ranged attack, similar to the Evil Eye attack from Heroes 4.
Werewolves are an average creature, with all average stats, but good movement. They can move far, hit fairly well, and sometimes turn targets into enemy Werewolves. On the days of the full moon, Werewolves lose control and attack the stack nearest to them on the battlefield.

Is that a bird? Is it a plane? NO!!! It's a Dracolich!!! Dracoliches are my all-time favorite creatures, but not without good reason. They get five ranged attacks per battle, all at very high damage, and they come with a Death Cloud splash to nail living enemies. When they run out of shots, or feel like taking the frontline, they can randomly block any melee or ranged attack aimed at them and receive no damage, but are still free to retaliate. Besides being lightning fast and having extremely high Health, Dracoliches lower enemy morale and have some magic resistance. Even the Azure Dragon better watch out when one of these big guys comes along.
Sylvan Centaurs are a stronger version of the Grand Elf, with slightly higher Attack, Damage, and Speed, though the Sylvan Centaur is not an original upgrade, but a special WoG script allows them to be made from Centaurs and Grand Elves. They can deal more damage to enemies, and they just bring a little more diversity to the Heroes III World.

Great "expansion" WoG folks, BTW

Yeah, but that's the beauty of it. Its amazing what they made just using parts of units already in the game. Its still very difficult to make a new creature for the game, no matter how you do it.

Well, I don't like these new units. They're just recolors and mixed versions of old ones! Except those Emissarys.

Campaigner, please keep in mind that many of these units were created several years ago when WoG first appeared, but they've been left in for backward compatibility (some maps and campaigns use them, for example). Some of the more original units (e.g., Sorceress, Werewolf) appeared in 3.58f. Any new units that appear in the next WoG release (3.59) most certainly would NOT be recoloured existing creatures. :)

Good ideas, really. But recolored units are a cheap way to add stuff and not approved in my book.
