The mage upgrade looks cool. The colossus upgrade looks ill.

Some of these are really good (e.g. Mage)... and some really bad (e.g. Genie).

That colossus looks like a ghost. Silly. Like the djinn, though.

To think I actually hoped for a better gargoyle. Figures...
I, for one, am dying to find out what colour they paint Michael's toenails.

That Gremlin looks just coooool.
And I like the Gargoyles a lot, anyway (since they - imo - are fittng to the Academy theme), but that one beats the other two.

If you had a huge stack of gremlins, would you really waste a turn to sabotauge an enemy siege engine, with the possible exception of the catapult?

I'm liking most of their looks, but come on with the Collosus/Titan upgrade. That's just pure laziness there!

The mage upgrade is pretty sweet.

Most of these look good, though the Storm Lord and the Marble Gargoyle aren't much to look at. The mage upgrade looks good, and hopefully the Djinn Vizier will have better stats (perhaps augmented by all that jewelry) to go with the new look.

I hope this Rakshasa Kshatri still has the Dash ability. I just checked it's stats and they still only have an Initiative of 8.
The Obsidian Golem is even faster than she is.

They look cool, except for the Djinn

And, I thought the Rakshasa is going to be a female! 8|

i like the golden theme. but why is the golem "obsidian" if it looks golden, while obs gargoyle looked green&black? and "combat mage", that sounds übercheesy.

The Storm Lord does not seem to have shots, so it is probably a melee creature (although the preview in a Russian magazine seems to suggest he can conjure a storm or something to that effect).
