Well, it's a bird. We know this bird. It's a Persian word for something like a roc --> yes, the giant eagle like birdie capable of lifting elephants...

I'm kinda dissapointed about the non-upgraded Rakshasa. It looks like some kind of freak. In older version I saw a Rakshasa in two versions: green and blue legged. I think they should leave it that way, a bit diffrent from each other like two hand non-upgraded --> four hands upgraded etc.

ThunderTitan: I know that, I'm not that stupid. I see some of her "atributes" that make her a She-Raksha. I simply don't like how the unit looks...or does she...come to think of it, after seeing her on a screenshot, she is not a bad unit afterall! :P

The genies look more like they could be used as tops. Just remove the feathers, turn them upside down, and spin away!

So it's no longer Djinn-Djinn Sultan but Genie-Master Genie? That's ok.
Hmm...What do the women think about the male Rakshasa being the upgraded version... ;)
It seems as though the female version has higher initiative though (may be a misprint).
This is definitely an instance where Nival could have made the upgrade not a no-brainer. The female Rakshasa could have been a magic user, while the male could have been a fighter. A bit stereotypic perhaps, but it would have been more interesting at least.

With those googles the master gremlin looks pretty cool, but where is his plane?
Instead of Giant-Ttan, Colossus-Titan was much better.
Save the Giant name for a huge barbaric humanoid in the expansion ;)

Yes the Colossus-Titan was cool. Generally they've ****ed up the names; Djinn was far better then Genie, and for Rakshasas: Rani (Hindi: queen, a wife of raja (rajah)) and Raja (Hindi: king) - this was GREAT!!!
Cheers,

Where's the Genies head?? All I see is two nipples and the feather....

And the Rakshassa upgrading from female is male is nothing unusual. Males are stronger than females.

1) Someone who's betatesting please tell me... how to gargoyles move if they're in that position?
2) Do iron golems really have a crack in their heads?
3) All I can see from the Genie is a hat with a red feather... I sure hope that's fromt the text being placed over it...
4) Giants' and Titans' hair looks... interesting... :|

On notes? My ass!!! No they fly, gargoyles start to fly when they want and just keeps still to hide or when just tired ;P

Hehe just noticed, the Titan looks like a very masculine version of Duke Nukem, he only need a pair of sunglasses with immunity against light spells =D

@DemianLucifer (krecu se kao sifonjeri sa krilima veruj mi)
They move in a funny way, like wardrobes with wings. :P And why Genies do not have head? They put theit hat on shoulders, and earring on hat? Some creatures are really funny.
