Best-looking Unit - Poll

Post by Sangel » December 8th, 2006, 7:30 am

I've assembled all seconded units (ie, which more than one person thought cool). There's definitely been an expansion in the numbers of awesome-looking units in the game since last time this poll was run!

And so, in no particular order, the candidates are...

I refuse to vote because you left Sorceress off the list... :?

I thought you were taking nominations (so I mentioned units that hadn't been mentioned before). That was more like a first round of voting then... (and yes, you're missing some main contenders!)

I prefer the Elves, and at which, I think the Elvish Hero looks the best so far. I used to like the Elvish Champion, especially Wayfarer's version, the new one just seems to normal to me, nothing to special.

Interesting that the Soulshooter is currently the leading candidate.

I was actually the lead contributor for that design, way back when. It started with a brown hooded cloak, but evolved through the efforts of several artists into what it is now. I always thought the dark, hooded skeleton was an excellent look. :D

I abstain. I can't shoose just one.

It's certainly getting harder and harder to pick favourites with the increasing quality of the art, that's for sure.

I vote for the entire Aragwaithi faction, they're probably the finest pieces of art I've ever seen on such a small scale.
How can they not be on the list?

Because we're working from mainline only. It's hard enough picking the best-looking units from mainline - imagine how hard it would be with all the excellent user-created additions!

Hero and whole Wose line.
Voted for Hero - but Woses also catch my eye. Big progress - mainline is two laps before (almost) any user-made faction.

I voted for Ranger because while all the units look good, the Ranger looks good in the way I want her to ambush me sometime when I am out walking in the woods. You know?
Don't go to Glowing Fish for advice, he will say both yes and no.

So you want to get punctured with multiple arrows and then have your jugular cut?

Masochist.
