Swordman Evolution

It was a bit difficult to create this evo poll, I was about to include the paladins from H1 and H2 but then the paladin from H5 wouldnt fit in since he ride a horse. So I decided to go for the lower tier knights.

So which strong, gentle, princess saving metal man will prevail? :-D

H1

H2

H3

H5 (not updated pictures!)

Voted the H5 Squire btw, the updated ones looks much better but couldnt find a fitting picture of tha' guy. He looks just what a heroic knight should look like. The colors are well fitting, nice looking shield, sword and the helmet is cool looking.

My second place goes to the H3 swordman and crusader. They look realistic but not the style I was looking for.

The H4 Crusader have a weird helmet and no shield??? 3rd place

H2 and H1 share the last place. Pixel and paper doll short said...

I'm not that big on not being able to see their faces, and I happen to like the simple, straightforward style of HoMM I&II. Voted Master Swordsman.

Voted H4 crusader. He looks agile, and so much more like a knight.

Voted: Heroes I Swordsman

He's kinda looks a little goofy, kinda looks a little scared, not too fancy and brings back such fond memories.

I also really like the Footmen & Squires in Heroes V but I knew they'd get lots of votes, while the lowly Heroes I Swordsman wouldn't … so Heroes I Swordsman got my vote.

Voted H5 Footman, for no particular reason. All of them are good.

Voted for H4, but h3 crusader is on the top with him.
i only picked h4 one because he's more powreful
Love them both, and their counter strike!!!
H5 is way to slow to do something and i don't like the design either.

All of them pretty good. But still, my favourite is H4 crusader.

I voted for the H3 Crusader. He is, IMO, the coolest Swordsman of them all :) .

Voted for the H4 Crusader. Actually, I wasn't a big fan, but it grew on me a lot. He also looks cool when he raises his sword in the air.

H3 Crusader isn't too bad, but I don't like his helmet (bucket-head FTL). I really would have voted for him, if it wasn't for the helmet.

The H2 ones are drawn well, but they feel too basic. H1 Swordsman looks slightly worse.

The H5 ones have oversized swords and shields (and war boots?!), which make them look like midgets. And apparently the H5 Footman forgot to change his pyjamas.

H4 Crusader - he's got the best set of armour out of all of them.

Just a shame that without a shield he doesn't have a huge two-handed sword.

H2 Master Swordsman would have to get my vote. I like the armor alot, and the shield is pretty awesome, too. Plus the "clinking" noise they make is much better than the rest, IMO...

I don't think that the h4 crusader can be considered a swordsman.It resembles more the paladin\crusader unit from the knight castle in heroes2.

H2 Master Swordsman for me the others are basically a travesty with the exception of the HV Squire

Damn.. can't remember if i voted or not. Anyway, right now i'd vote for the H3 Crusader if i could, for some reason i seem to like trashcan helmets.

Another tough choice,but I had to pick HV squire as the best one.The HIII crussader and HIV crussader come on a close second.

H3 Crusader

Was thinking about the H4 one, but I like this one better.
