H2 really looks ghostly, unlike all the rest. And i think Ubival saw way too many Pin-Head movies and liked Peter Jacksons army of the dead in LotR.

its hard between h2 and h5. so different, but both are great.

h5 goes.

the ghost is IMO the most imaginatevly modelled unit in h5. i hate to see them in combat (unreliable as own, headaching as enemy, MISSED! MISSED!) , but the model is fantastic. if only all other h5 units were as pretty as ghosts :(


btw: its really unfair to put h4 huge concept art there. its very different from the in-game h4 ghost and other ghosts dont have concept art with them here, so its unfair.

Hey, it's not the OP's fault the company didn't release the art.

And that's a computer render, not concept art.

It is. See, the render can be made smaller and used in the game. Get my drift?

Thanks for the link Vhilhu :)
And for the H4 concept art: it is not a concept but a bigger version of the unit.

they dont look THAT bad this way.

and h4 ingame ghosts glows so strongly that i wouldnt even recognize its concept as its upgrade or vice versa. if such things had existed there. but including concept art / rendered stuff is unfair towards the h1 and h2 and h3wog ones. as those games never had it.

BUT

has anyone came upon the idea to include kings bounty pictures? i could take some if theyre not on the google image search, i have it on my comp.

Again using the X was terrible,so Y has an excuse to look terrible as well,are we?

It would be nice to include them,but they arent technically part of the series.

And any level 1 creatures you might have in your army run even faster, or they should, at least. :-D

I'm also going with H2, even though all of them have their charm, except the WoG ghost.

Vote H2.

The first two ghosts are the best in my opinion. Actually the ghost from H1 is the only one to give me a chill, but its visual style is a bit under that of H2. Technically, the H2 one is a little outdated, but the idea is great.

I had like ghosts in later versions to look like banshees, white ladies and such. There are very nice visuals to make with them. Unfortunately they've gone a very bad way imo. The one from H4 was close enough, but I didn't like the design at all. The sounds were very good however. The ones from H3 (wraith and that wog ghost) just aren't interesting to me, and the ones from H5 remind me of a bad version of some ghosts in an old cartoon, The Twelve Tasks of Asterix.

Edit: removed pic that has been changed

H2 Ghost.
If my memory serves me right, those were the ones that made that incredibly creepy sound. And they look the best too, I think.

I love the H1 ghost, so I'll go with it..H2 would have to be a very close second, and it was an absolute unstoppable force if any level 1 creatures were around..
