It sure looks nice, but the wings... look kinda - upside-down, would you agree?

Yeah, the wings are indeed upside down. Also look at the other creature(Balor?) with wings in that screen. That one also has its wings upside down. Both look nice though, so I dont mind.

Oh, right. I didn't even notice that his things are the wrong way round, too^^

Well, I doN#t like it. It just looks... wrohg..
But it seem that everyone has his/her own opinion here - But I sure do hope they turn them around...

Iv noticed on the registration page that the 'angel' is opposite to the succubus, this suggests to me their representing the equal in terms of evil and good, or in other words their the same level creatures. Now i dont think that the succubus is the inferno towns highest creature, so this means either the angel is now not the top level creature for castle or this 'angel' isnt an angel at all, but something else.

Considering the Kreegan are among if not the evilest faction in HMM, I think that was the idea. It just looks too deliberate to have been done for no reason.

Hmm, might be.... Still don't like it :P ^^
Oh, I just noticed in that quote, what typos I made lol^^

@indie85: Well, I guess that they just didn't want to show another creature allready and chose the Succubus because it's female (as their angel is too -.-)...

Well, if you think about it, evil tends to turn things upside down. Like the upsidedown cross and pentagram....so why not wings too heh?
lol...
The upsidedown wings do look wrong. But in my eyes it looks right =) eeeh...something like that.

And you are sure that creature is a "succubus" because...? Whould not be so sure another one is a "balor"...

I think I read somewhere that it is a Succubus - Still, you are right when you say that I might err.

Dunno if there's a Balor on screen2. Did I say so? If, I should do something about my memory lol

we vere told that the creatures in that screen is Succubus, Balor,Nightmare and demon. As far i can see from that screen, there is only one creature that is clearly female. So when a Succubus is a female demon, we can be pretty sure that the creature we are talking about is a Succubus. And i guees the Balor is the other winged creature.

PS: it's good to be evil =D

It looks evil enough....and that's good....we need more evil creatures....Evil is good!!! ( in games only....not in real life )

Oh most certainly. Every game needs its fair share of evil creatures, even the not-so-very impressive ones, like cyborg chipmunks, for instance.

We have more than our fair share of evil creatures in real life as it is. Wouldn't you agree? http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

euh....

for me...

1st level : demon
2nd level : succubus
3rd level : nightmare
4th level : balor

also the angel is 4th level

in the 3rd picture .... balor vs angel ...
the angel doesn't fight a simple troglo!!!
balor must be as high as she(angel) !!!

so i'm considerating angel = 4th ...
so... balor as strong !!!

Well i hope theres more than 4 levels of creatures to a town, 4 creatures per town would be poor.

I don't think that the succubus is a high level creature or that the angel is a low level one:

Either the succubus was the only peice of concept art that would fit lengthwise on the login screen,

Or the designers thought that the winged, half naked demonic woman would make a more effective foil than the devilto the saintly angel. Probably not to be taken as a comparison of power.

The burning horsie with a pun-for-a-name stronger than the she-demon? I'd guess the opposite.

One thing that the NWC artists did great was that with some lvl1 creatures they really hit the mark and made them look weak and pathetic. None of the demonic creatures has weakness written on them the same way as imps had, so I'm hoping there's at least one creature that's lower in the hiarchy than all the infernals in the picture.

I agree. The Inferno should have at least one creature that looks weak. I think most of the time in Heroes history the creatures looked roughly as strong as they were in truth. So my vote is definitely to have at least one "weak-looking" Inferno creature that *is* weak. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/25.gif However the creature should still have its uses - it's no use if the imps are completely useless like they were in H3. Especially if the imp is on its own and doesn't have an upgrade.

(One exception was the H3 Crystal Dragon that "jumped" back every time it got hit even though it had a massive 800 hitpoints. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif However the H3 weak recruitable creatures certainly looked weak which I why I think the centaurs/centaur captains looked stronger than the imps, gremlins, pixies and gnolls.)

Four levels only? I agree, it's so poor. About the wings, maybe the wings are at this position because the creature has just descended form the skies. The other creature, the balor, hasn't the wings upside down, perhaps it seems to be this way, buy maybe due to its four-legs position (on the other screens seems to stand high).

To me it just looks like she is flexing her wings...
But then again, the last time I posted this message (2 minutes ago) it rejected my post for some reason :/
