Heroes VII: Armies of the Light, Part 1

Postby Aemaeth » Sep 23 2014, 16:32

Some spies gave information about a new army for the Holy Empire. They have found blue prints, artworks, and design for some units and animals.
Member of the council can discover the first work on Holy Empire units and see the influence retain to design them.
Those units have new skin, and have more Nordic influence than the past games:
1. Sentinel
2. Legionnaire
3. Crossbowman
4. Marksman
5. Dire Wolf
6. Silverback

You can hardly notice any significant difference between the human units in that link and that's one of the reasons I don't like haven - there's very little diversity in their roster.

"Silberrücken" in german can be used for all kind of a experienced, strong, hardened alpha / pack leader type of animals or individuals. If it is used for humans it conotates metaphorical to the strength and traits of an animal. Of course it could also be used for a dominant gorilla, but it isn't limited to this use.

There were plenty of wolves in fantasy called Silverback already. Not the best name, but also it's nothing new and really wrong.
