Stronghold Hero Mount

Postby Kalah » Feb 11 2011, 9:00

The mount ridden by Stronghold heroes. I have to say: one of the best things I've seen since the announcement. A proper, sturdy, realistic horse, with ornaments inspired by Aboriginal and Mesoamerican cultures.

It's nice, but I would prefer a sabretooth. I think it would fit better.

Except for the part where cats are probably not build for being mounted...

Interesting how they're 45% zebra... i guess the centaurs aren't very picky during rutting time.

A zebra/clydesdale?

I think a rhyno or boar would have fitted them better. ..or no mount at all really.

As you know, all H6 mounts are HORSES. I like it. Hated those stupid H5 lizards.

Yeah, you tell this to He-Man. :P

... and to the Wolf Riders from H3...

I personally, prefer variety and am thinking this feature would be cooler than a horse.

I'd prefer different mounts ...

Ornaments. Not too many of them, this time. And at least they're not the horse's own, like with the Inferno creatures.

They hit the front legs, thus spurring the animal on by itself. :D

Indeed, but will you say that the wolves are also fit for riding?

Hmm, I am starting to put hints together. Lot of female units, no faction that has practical appearance -> Ashan is not in war at all, but it is Blood Moon Fashion Show. The fifth race is the Calvin Klein faction!

More agile for one, and can bite somones leg off in close combat. Doubt they are too good as mount though. Then again in fantasy game, looks and design is what matters.
