Has anyone seen these ingame playable characters before?

The role-playing games (I-X) that started it all and the various spin-offs (including Dark Messiah).

Probably early conception of game or beta.
Maybe you remember picture of minotaurs in gold chainmails on Emerald Island on back of MM7 box?

EDIT:
That yellow "frog" (ImageShack) making me mad.
Here is link to picture if something still will be wrong with "frog".

It's the early game, nothing was final that day. Just something to let the people see what the game COULD look like, here's some footage of the early game trailer...

Well, i don't think there was a so called early trailer for that one. MM6 was the first 3D might and magic game and so they wanted to see how the fans reacted...

Hey that was an interesting trailer. The video's bad quality and the funny floating eye which looked like the head of a minator reminds me of Doom 1 and Doom 2. It looks like quite abit of content was scrapped for Might and Magic 6. Also the outdoor mini map resembled the blue background and white outlined dungeons, which obviously got changed in the proper release of the game so that the minimap was in colour.

Well i could see why. Some of the things just weren't in place. Like the floating eyes in the beginning (where you must rescue angela and kill the queen spider) those just weren't in pace. And also some things didn't work well, like the blue background in the minimap when you are adventuring. IN dungeons it works fine, great that you don't know where to go the first time you play it...

Maybe few things was changed for better, but also many good was lost. I like that round severs and portraits.
