The Sylvan Elves are beautiful! (AND scantily clad, too! :P)

Acedemy is WEIRD... The Titan looks like Energy Elemental (where's the helmet!?). The Gremlin came right from the movies - with the addition of a musket! I, for one, am fine with it. But the Obsidian Cupboard is the strangest piece of artwork so far! Stranger even than the new Genie... (what's with its face and hands!?)

boo8412, not so. The guy who did the scans said it did stuff like that for other factions too. Like for the inferno it did the succubus. So It is just a cool looking unit not level 7

No druid is not lvl 7 unit just because it has the biggest picture on the page, since necro has a lich as the biggest picture in the magazine.

my bet is lvl 7 unit = green dragon, upgraded = gold dragon.
as always.

havent seen the other scans but it was worth a shot anything to get rid of the mirror images of dungeon and sylvan. I'm fine with the elves vs. dark elves but dont make the troops the same but with different names how about some originality something DIFFERENT

maybe a gun is better than these balls/orbs/spheres/whatever. After throwing one, they immediately had a new one. Would look even worse in 3D than in 2D.

Didn't really look like a gun - looked like a horn of some sort. Though why a gremlin would need a horn is beyond me.

Could you perhaps restart the poll on the left side of the page? Now, that all creatures are known, people's opinions may have changed a bit. Personally, I would no longer vote for None, as I did, but Academy. For me, the name doesn't fit the creatures...

The Academy creatures are bizzare, I can't think of another way to describe it. The Golem looks like a genie, the Genie looks like a floating torso and the Titan looks like a Salvatore-style Drow. Do you think Academy and Dungeon are allies? ;-)

Oh, I forgot - The Gargoyle looks like a weird paperweight.

At first I thought the dendroid soldier was just a bunch of leaves, but I copied the artwork to my computer and lightened it in photoshop, it has the face around the waistline, very bizarre but cool, I think.

Visit Sir Charles' site here: http://home.houston.rr.com/thepliskepag ... n%20forces

He's usually very good about updating his site promptly. Unfortunately, he's having to deal with hurricane issues right now, but he managed to post the new artwork.
