I wondered once if Heroes 2 characters have any resemblances with the real people.
Here are my humble finds, many of the people are Russian so you most probably may not know them.
Feel free to post your similarity if you find any! Wink

Archibald - Mikhail Boyarsky



Roland - Leonid Kuravlyov



Corlagon - Antonio Banderas



Carlawn - Scarlett Johansson



Zam - Valeriy Meladze



Ergon - Kirill Käro



Lord Alberon - Dmitry Medvedev



Viscount Kraeger - Christian Bale



Celia - Nina Hagen

Yeah, both of them are famous Russian actors of soviet-timed movies.
That's why in Russia Roland and Archibald, especially Archibald, are often remembered by the names of these actors. lol

I forgot where I read it, but I recall that the hero portraits from The Price of Loyalty are based on Cyberlore Studios employees.

I recall reading that somewhere too. It would be really awesome to have these base photos, because this info surely belongs in the Heroes 2 Museum compiled by me.
Just like Sir Mullich is based on David Mullich in Heroes 3, and George Almond was a base for Inteus.



As an update, here are more finds from DF2 community.

Vesper - Leonid Yakubovitch



Vesper - Armen Dzhigarkhanyan



Thundax - Dave Mustaine



Atlas - Dwayne Johnson



Alamar - Marlon Brando as the Godfather (on this image - collection figure, not a man)



Jarkonas VI - Robert Downey Jr.



Charity - Angelina Jolie as the Maleficient



Rialdo - André René Roussimoff, "The Giant"



Sarakin - Christopher Lee as Dart Tyranus



Solmyr - Kevin Sorbo



Kalindra - Lucy Lawless



Gem - Renee O'Connor



Brother Brax - Ian McDiarmid as Dart Sidius





In addition, standard Might and Magic VI characters also remind Xena (Lucy Lawless) and Gabrielle (Renee O'Connor):

Yeah. Perhaps that's why I'm so obsessed with Carlawn all the time. There will be an HD fan art of her, I swear. lol

Now we know from which land Morglin Ironfist came to Enroth Very Happy I wish that one day true kings will return to Enroth and Poland. Without them, something has irretrievably gone...

Close enough, but it's not Roland, it's obviously Archibald, the only true king!

Another kind of funny similarity, something I never noticed since I barely played h1, but someone shared this on the internet and I found it funny, looks like Minos is wearing Nomad boots. Very Happy
