Archer evolution

Postby DaemianLucifer » May 16 2006, 21:21

Ive decided to give you an evolution where HV has a chance of winning the poll.So,which archer do you like best?(just archers,no marksmen in here).

NOTE:I think these evolutions would best fit in the screenshots thread.Do you agree?

It never occured to me before, but the one in H3 had a crossbow, so he's not really an Archer, is he.

Also, you might want to use some ingame footage/picture of the H3 and H5 ones:

Done.And next time use photobucket or something like that for pictures that wont show instantly(its so tedious to open them,even for me,and I have a pretty nice connection).

Blame AoH. It did show on thir site though. Changeing the url seemd kinda pointless afterwards. I did only put it there so you could use them.

Well, my dictonary lists Willhelm Tell as an example of an archer, so I think the term can be applied to any kind of bowman.

Voted H5. He looks a bit fat but he looks good. I guess it's just the armor :D

Loved the H2 archer...I know it's not as good graphic-wise as the others, but whenever I think of an archer, it's the H2 one..

Well, as long as we're not discriminating, why not list a pic of the crossbowman from Heroes IV?

As mentioned before, the archer from H3 is actually a crossbowman - and was included.

You forgot the rule DL, you have alredy made two other evolution polls, the Gargoyle and the Titan one, let other members make their own too. Only one evo thread per member remember?
And each week there can be a new thread if not in that week, two the next week.

No one mentioned that rule,you just made it up.And I wated long enough for someone to make a poll in this week,but since no one did,I did it myself.

Oh,and congrats on 1500.But no presents for you,since theres no official praise thread :devil:

I dont see why the same people shouldnt make evolution polls. I think it is nice that someone else does it and messes with all the picture stuff.

Btw voted for Heroes V one. In my opinion there is no big difference between archers and crossbowmen so they could easily all be in the same poll.

Well that is the point of all those evoulution polls.I did this one since no one wanted to,and it was about the middle of the week.Id like for someone else to do the next evolution though.
