This sounds harsh, and I don't want to be a jerk, but that whip looks bad. It seems you made it in less than a minute. If you have the ageless era, look at the slavers line. You can take inspiration from them.

You can also have a look at here for a whip. It is from Archaic Era made by doofus-01 in another style than the whip from Ageless Era.

you know, with all that effort i am putting into orcish slavers, i think i should someday make a campaign including them :twisted: (the plot will likely be: a bunch (or id rather say, a crowd of slaves) rebel against their orcish masters), like the idea?

Go right ahead if you want. If you are serious, make a scenario/campaign development thread. Make the base of the campaign first before the thread though, since it is impossible to comment a lot about an idea.

just another idea (basically, if a Revenant or a draug meets the one who killed him in his life, his eyes start glowing (P.S. it's not really a gameplay, but more of a storyline idea))

I don't think I need to say that your units look great, you seem to know what you're doing here.
I'm just not so sure about the glowing eyes on the skeleton. Well not the skeleton having glowing eyes, that's generally acceptable, but the way you've done it looks great on the Draug but not so good on the Revenant.

Your attack button and item buttons are superlative by the way.
...apparenly we can't go with it or something.

decided to make a sprite for lvl2 mother mudcrawler (because let's face it, it doesn't have 1.12 graphics, and thus looks really out of place) by the way, feel free to use it (it's not just increased size, but with a few more bits on the back, bigger eyes, bigger head)
here it is:
