The HoMM V manticore looks like it's been pieced together hastily, and not very well either.

I went with the HoMM III manticore, its colours are much more fitting than the scorpicore's.

H3 manticore looks nice :) H5 is not that special, kinda ugly really, like they hated the maticore and were willing to screw it up big time!

Voted H3 Scorpicore, I missed several of the H3 creatures in H-IV, so I was happy to hear several were returning in H-V. Then I saw the H-V manticore and well ahhhhh.

Voted H3 Manticore

I like the color scheme better than the upgrade.

Out of the three candidates, I chose the H3 Manticore. I like the colour, the tail, oh well... I like the unit's overall design. Scorpicore is way too red, in fact it looks "unnatural" (if you can say that of a fantasy based creature anyway). Although I like Scorpicore's special ability, the unit loses points because of its visual appreance. In plain words: the colour doesn't quite fit and somehow the teeth look like visit to the dentist's might be in order.

Heroes V version of Manticore is just plain ugly. And it looks like it's from a class B Hollywood production called Revenge of the Alien Monkeys: the Movie.

H3 Manticore gets it. Considered the upgrade, but decided against it. H5 was out of the question.

Voted H3 Scorpicore.

The H3 Manticore looks too much like a real lion and the H5 manticore looks like a piece of crap ^^

Scorpicore looks "unnatural" like someone said, and that's what a fantastic creature should be. Even if it's just a red manticore ^^

Yeah, the H3 Scorpicore is really cool too (so what's wrong with red :-D ) … anyhow, it was a close second to my vote for the H3 Manticore. Both are great looking creatures.

Good point. H5's face, reminds me the ugly and disturbing pocket-dogs.

Voted H3 Manticore, purely on its looks cause I've never played H3. Some might say it looks a bit too much like a lion and I agree to some extend but I still prefer it over the others. I think we can all agree the H5 one sucks big time. Even though it's a fabel creature it's just too weird! Like a circus freak :disagree:
