H7 Necropolis Lineup

Postby Kalah » Jan 23 2015, 17:00

The first part of the Necropolis lineup has <a target="_blank" href="https://mmh7.ubi.com/en/blog/post/view/necropolis-line-up-reveal-p1">been revealed</a>.

The developers have chosen a traditional path, going with <b>skeletons</b> and <b>ghosts</b>, but also <b>spiders</b>.

One can only speculate as to whether this means more traditional creatures will appear; the lich, the vampire and the bone dragon come to mind. Let's wait and see.

I am ok with the spider, but the skeleton looks terrible.

It is supposed to be an expendable unit which comes in hordes, not some cool creature with hero armor.

I don't understand why Ubi can't just give the team a larger budget/time so they don't have to recycle so much material from H6.

@Avonu: Thanks, although that story was definitely not on the blog's first page while I was typing our story.

Anyway it's confirmed, then, that the liches, vampires and bone dragons will also return.

The lower units are lacking, but the top-tier units are pretty good.

Christ, what is up with the faces of all these things;
The vampires look ugly as sin with the lower part of their face all swollen up combined with the monster chin, and the liches aren't even part of the skeleton master race.
Urgh. I would much prefer "Prince Arthas" to those vampires, since at least Arthas doesn't look like a grotesque prettyboy-nosferatu reject.

At least the headless warriors look great, and the lamasu look fittingly eerie - although I still don't like their face.

I respect that smug look on fancy bones up there. :proud: It would be so great if Homm art had that kind of special character.
