Isn't the Gremlin's attack a bit too high? 6? This is as high as a Minotaur's.

Yeah but no repair.
I, for one, am dying to find out what colour they paint Michael's toenails.

A few units here look like some Village People members. I can almost see and hear them starting to dance and sing: "Y M C A!"

The only alt upg that I like more than the original is the Gremlin definately.Don't liek the Djinns the Titans and the gomles.Rakshasas and mages looks ok but really-battle mage sound much much better.

Hahahahhaha lol! Combat Mage, well thought it would be Batlle Mage but oh well, it means almost the same so no big deal. A brown Raksasha? Lol Storm Lord...hoped for Thunder Titan ;p
Like the looks, still I hate how the djinns looks...big hands almost no head and low hp *sigh*

The combat mage looks like an apperentice, since with no spells? I find it suitable, the new raksasha could help with some breasts, but hey you know nival cant do that unless some form for clothing can be done. The storm lord looks fresh, swirling air around him but the djinn looks like a crazy badass clown!!!! man whats up???

The only one I don't like more than the original is the Storm Lord, and yes Battle Mage would have sounded better.

FYI, ability list is up in English at the portal (mightandmagic.us.ubi.com). Combat Mage is listed as a caster (Magic Fist - presumably that means Fist of Wrath - and Dispel), but the stats posted in the forum give no spell points. Storm Lord is listed as a shooter, but the stats give him no shots. Something's off there.

Yeah, that would be too overpowered... what with -10 morale to all enemies and ever increasing stats what army would stand any chance?

Gremlin Saboteur looks decent; Marble Gargoyle...eh? Say what again? Marble. NOT! Is the artist stoned? Obsidian Golem is nothing special; Combat Mage is alright, but again, Battle Mage as a name is 10x better; Djinn Vizier is terrible, yep, the artist must be stoned; Rakshasa Kshatri is a poor name, and the look matches. I agree, he looks like a Pimp; Storm Lord, not a bad name, but his look says Necromancer to me.

All in all, only the Gremlin alt upgrade and the Combat/Battle Mage should be kept as is. The rest need to be re-done.

@Hawkwinter: Everyone knows that the artist is stoned (and should be stoned too ;)).

Just to clarify my earlier post, I noticed I made the "Pimp" comment when I was mentioning the Rakshasa, that actually belonged with the Djinn.

Thanks for the welcome to the forums. :)

Anyone know if there's any chance they'll change the artwork on the Alt's posted so far? I don't know how far along they are with work on the new standalone addition, and I know art content can be time consuming.

I'm guessing Fortress is next and in two weeks from now we'll either see whether Renegades are indeed Haven alts, or we finally get to see some Orcs and their stats.

obsidians special nothing to look at?? For me he seems more powerful than the steel golem in terms of abilities.

I think they look cool. The Vizier is fine, even if I was hoping an Efreet (it would have made sense given the red/black color scheme of the alternate upgrades for the Academy.)

By the way, is it me or does the Obsidian Golem have a vicious smile in the corner of his mouth ?
