I voted for the H5 upgrade [well H5 anyway]. Honestly I think it's a toss-up between H5 & H3.

H5 looks better to me but H3 did "more with less".

The "crusading" unit of castle from Heroes III is the one that gets my vote. It's a solid unit with good stats and has a nice ability: Strikes Twice! I can never stress that enough. You can't go wrong with these guys. Also, you got to love that helmet with feathers on the top. It's so fancy. :D

You know.. the HoMM I&II Paladins and Crusaders count as swordsmen too

and I would have voted for one of them, but instead, HIV got my vote

oh come on! the paladin/crusader from the first two HoMM games is the same thing as the crusader in H3 and H4

also, champions have nothing to do with them

Maybe, 'Vindicater' must be 'Vindicator'?

No offence, just a thought about possible typo.

I voted for Enrothian Master Swordsman .. because classic Swordsman can't really be without Kite Shield and fully cladded in armour, and wears medieval visage-less helmet

Image

Nival's basic swordsmen look very less-protected, nor having any "imperial" feel. give them a gothic helmet and voila!

(did i stick too much on Roman Imperial stuff?)

Vindicator is also cool. (horn is... i think.. dedicated to the true form of the "Evil"versions of Queen Isabel.... Biara in disguise :devil:

.... for swordsmen in Heroes4, Does King Lysander has a good mindset? leaving out shields from swordsmen and telling other units not to bear shields? (but everyone except monks wear chainmail at minimum level of protection, at least Palaedrans are better protected than Erathians hehe:p )

You have not played rpg games it seems.

Do you know what is a greatsword and what is a longsword?

I like the death scene of the H4 Swordsmen. Sticking their sword in the ground then keeling over. Sweet and funny.
But I like the H3 Masters. Just wish they had a better sound when battling other than the clanking.

And so is the Swordsman from the first 2 games... that's why we use the level instead of the look.

H4 Crusader for me. :)
The armor looks really cool and these are pretty though as well.
