The Haven units fit in the theme of Fighters of the Light God and Protectors of Ashan. I doubt Angels would ally themselves with crappy units like peasants (as in H5)
If you read the way the Haven is described on the Facebook preview :
The Haven nobles are excited when they hear that a Demon invasion has been prophesized. This is the chance for them to demonstrate their superiority to all other factions for the first time in history, by brilliantly and courageously shining in the exciting battles about to come. Their empire is ready to take place as the legitimate defenders of Ashan.
It makes sense that they have good looking and shiny units.

Which is most likely why the Haven is the dullest faction through all the HoMM. Too normal, too basic, they had nothing special except the Angels.
So far, the H6 Haven reminds me a lot of those Warhammer Empire or Bretonnian armies - which is far more interesting than the crap Haven we've had since Heroes 1 with its super peasants. I want to see more units like the H1/H2 Paladin and less like the ridiculous peasants.
