Not being far in the game i didnt see a lot of creatures but my favorites are the archangels, the paladins and the archdevils. I think the archangels are great because they have style ( their sword is super cool) abd they are powerful but the most cool thing is to resurect dead units. They can also move far. Although you can only use this ability once you can ressurect any number of units (1k marksman). The paladins are cool, they have the ability to heeal units they can go far and they attack good plus the armor lokks very good. But the most cool ones are the archdevils. They are so well done. They attack pretty good and they move far. The only inconvinient with these three is that they take 4 squares on the tactic mode grid. But they still are pretty cool.

I just love the way mages , when they get shot with a ranged attack , brush their sleeve like it was nothing

i like:

treants - look cool, much better than beta, i really dont understand what people have against them. -edit: they do move a bit too fast though-

Gargoyles - first of all, not everybodyhates them. i dont actually love them, but i think it looks pretty nice and i appreciate Ubi taking such a risk in designing them like that. a little bit of originality never hurt anybody.

Black dragons - they rule!!!

Devils - look pretty good, although i would make some changes.

Demons - i dont really like the art here, but the animations are great. they just remind me of a small, red, flaming King Kong.

Lich - gotta love the liches!

Angels - A guy in a hood with wings. awesome.

Rakshasa - very cool guys

Djinns - i cant believe some people actually dont like these guys. they, imo, are the coolest looking guys in the game. they deffinetly top the list.

Unicorns - actually, i think they tie the Djinns in the #1 slot. they are just beautiful (even though they looked better in the beta)

Skeleton Archers - they just look good.

Personally i'm a huge fan of most all of the desigins in the game except for that of the Emerald Dragon! The Green Dragon looks so wonderful. So why in the world does it turn hideous upon an upgrade? Anyone else thin that the Emerald Dragon needs to be prettied up?

Hmm...must be the Wights or the Liches. Both ones look excellent.

The Wraith is laughable - sort of a disco version of Wight. :D

Forgot to mention the djinns breakfingers animation and sound. Like they have too much magic stored in their huge hands and fingertips or just softening them up before they use their sword. A funny and a bit arrogant "Im ready" pose showing that "Hey yeah I may have big hands but watch what I can do with them,holding a sword, cast spells..." :D

I also like djinnis! Its odd how so many people like this strange design.

One thing... I think it would be nicer if the Inferno units would be more humanoid. Devils could be like in HoMM 4. Succubi i dont like at all, they are too monsterish. How can you call it the Hall of Temptations? No mortal would be tempted by a monster(a few maybe).

Mostly becasue they have a small head and a big hands.

The male and female djinn heroes damages this statement abit since they look like the genies in previous games.

Djinns are kind of odd. Still ok, I guess.

But there's also one design I particularly dig - the Gargoyles! They're hilarious! They look so...noobish. :D

Ammm...they are demons,so no,they dont need to look more humanoid.And succubi is a temptress because she uses magic(polymorf and charm).Of course no one would fall for her if she was in her true form.

I find djinns hilarious in their current form, but hey, they're other-dimensional beings and we cant expect them to look "normal" in the same way as we percieve the notion of normality.

Yes! i hate the emeralds! they are so ugly! ok, i can live with the fact that their ugly, just like gargoyles, but they dont even look strong! i mean, the green dragons, i actually really like, i forgot to put them in my list before. they look like really buff crocodiles with wings. you can just see the power within them. but the emerald dragons, well, they're all skinny and stuff and look really weak and, once again, ugly! i think i wont upgrade them just because of that. if someone could make a mod that would change the models of the emerald dragon with the one of the gree dragon and vice versa, it would make me very happy.

Somewhat agree on that one, the emerald dragon looks so thin especially its neck. Also I dont quite like the shape of the head either. But the rest is nice.
