Well, I expected the models to come out much worse. Although I'm not really happy with the Beholder I think they are doing their job quite well. Anybody have a guess for their racial ability? You can see the gauge in the Manticore screen (along the very upper body of the Assassin).

Dungeon Town Screen

Not enough purple. :P

At least it looks less crowded then others town screens, where one building cover other.

Dragon utopia looks like it should be - majestic and beautiful.

Probably dragons.

Two or one? There's not enough dragon races to make it majestic. Perhaps it wil be a dragon with lower guards. Perhaps not and it will be just shadows of former other dragons.

Gold, green, red ..where they are?

I for one like how this faction has turned out. Sure, it's a bit too purple (quite a bit too purple), but otherwise the artwork and the unit disposition look good in my opinion. It's gone far astray from the patriachic, swamp-dwelling Warlock faction a lot of us grew up with in Heroes 2. They moved underground, turned dark elf. But I don't mind. They still got the Blackies ;). And they are still the dark, badass, powerful magicians they've always been.

Or at least so I hope. Please, let them become the faction for highpowered spells, that's what they do best!
