Shades of Darkness Animations

The official Facebook page has released a video containing animations of some creatures from the upcoming H6 expansion <i>Shades of Darkness</i>. Some of them are quite funny. I draw your attention particularly to the lurker "ballet dancer".

<i>Shades of Darkness</i> is due for release on May 2nd.

The alternate animations were amusing and perhaps they should have left them as Easter eggs like Old Man Jack nwcoldman in H-IV.

@Jeff: all the "funny" animations are in the game. They trigger if you spend some time on a battle screen without playing... :)

Maybe you should also have made something like those to happen when players hit a special secret code or something. ;)

@Marzhin:
I wanted to say that, but it really takes a long time for these animations to fire. Yes, they are there, but there could have been a trigger button, as Kalah says.
