Voted Heroes 3. It looks just right.
The H1 and H2 versions look interesting too.
H4 looks ridiculous, IMO... Like a swamp-cow... I mean, read the "Crag Hack" Gothrak article and tell me: doesn't it seem likely for that H4 hydra to say "MOO!" ?...
As for the H5 one... those legs look like those of an elephant. Or a rhino. Or a hippo. In any case, something not Hydra.

You and Gothrak must have really weird cows where you live.

Hydra is a snakelikeancient creature, and I doubt thet snakes have legs. Btw they look silly only with front legs....


Have you ever seen Hercules? The Disney-version...there's a Hydra and it has legs. They must have some source material that convinced them it had legs :devious:
It only has two legs, yes, but it seems the tail acts as a third leg :D

Cartoon is just as reliable source as is a video game.

And this is how it looked like to people from 16th century,by wikipedia:

So,HIV is the closest to it.

I'm intriqued indeed but I can't see the pic :S

Can you try again?

EDIT: Nevermind, found it :D
You're probably right when you say that video games are as reliable a source as cartoons, I just didn't think of that and I was just trying to find something to compare with to show that a Hydra has legs :) At least the original kind..

Well, would you prefer this for the hydra?:

We even have full anatomy on it:

Of course, it is a rather small creature (recall studying them in 9th grade biology under a microscope)... :devil:

The HoMaM 1 hydra is almost a childhood memory. It's one of the most memorable things in all heroes games

Does the wink mean you are joking? If not, then I say I am no illustrator. Does that mean non-illustrators should keep quiet (if expressing a negative view)? I fail to see the logic behind such a rationale.
