This thread is reserved for developing the faction lineup.

According to the Ironfist Wiki, the first lineup draft features this list:

Ironfist Wiki wrote:
The faction lineup is supposed to be different from the "classic" NWC Forge lineup with more regards to Might and Magic VI: The Mandate of Heaven and the older parts of the series.
The lineup information can be severely changed in future. Graphic assets are coming later.

  1. Goblin Grunt/Goblin Trooper
  2. Cyber Zombie/Cyber Mutant
  3. Pyro
  4. Ooze (a MMVI creature with some elements of MMIV Ooze Man)
  5. Sentry Bot/Assault Drone (a MMVI creature)
  6. Colossus (a MMV creature, former Xeen Guard)


Graphics are coming soon.

After some thoughts here I'll post some ideas for Cyborg faction's lineup. I was heavily inspired by old MM games and VCMI Forge project (in whose team I am), so... here you go.

1. Trooper

By "Trooper" I mean this guy:



...but with blaster, similar to blaster goblins. Simple yet understandable concept. No copying of other units, but the unit's characteristics are basically the same. The only shooter in the whole lineup.

2. Arsonist -> Pyro





Maybe Gog? But I don't know, it could be any other creature, really. The point is it should attack 2 hexes and be pretty fast.

3. Sucker -> Soul Sucker





Classic monster from MM6. Only flyer in the whole lineup. I think it should have the ability to cast something similar to Forgetfulness from Heroes 3 (same concept as in VCMI Forge). The upgrade should be somehow similar to Cerberus, with two heads and 3-hexes attack.



4. Sentry Bot





Classic droid from MM5 and MM6. Not a flyer, but it can go above the obstacles (but that also means it can't get through the whole battlefield in one movement).

5. Juggernaut





Completely new monster made for VCMI Forge. It was heavily inspired by Annihilator from MM5. Its ability is to regenerate several HP every turn (not like Trolls, but still very unconvenient for the enemy).

6. Colossus



Not much to say here - this is the must have.

PostSubject: Lineup Proposition   2016-06-06, 10:42

Hello there!

I think the main problem with forge in general is that it uses units that seem so technologically advanced, that no other faction could stand up against them. The blasters etc. would propably change the warfare tactics completely, as it already happened in our world.
So instead, I would propose to still make it cybered-up, but make it so that it is comparable to the other factions. I think cyber-swords and such fit better than guns, because if you really wanted to, you could convince yourself it is still just magic.


So here's my proposed line-up (without the upgrades for now):

1. Gremlin - could be fast with very low hp (maybe even 1) but deal 1-3 damage or so


2. Slime - fast and generally weak, but lowers opponents defence like disrupting ray


3. Pyromancer - could be a reliable unit with the 2-hex ability. For the looks, I would not give them the flamethrower but instead they could have some sort of heavy technological gloves on their whole arms that shoot fire, to at least imitate magic a bit. Rest could be similar to male H4 chaos sorcerer.


4. Red Warrior - similar to minotaurs but regenerate like trolls. Could be costy. Also, as the line-up lacks 2-hex creatures, this one could be changed to some big animal-like robot.


5. Enchantress - towns only shooter and flyer (they teleport), very fast, could have no melee penalty and cast random debuffs.


6. Colossus - could be a cross between cyclopes and dragons with about 250 hp, 2-hex attack and magic immunity.




Also I have a town theme that you can check out, it is this music piece, but sped up and edited.
Here you can get it:

Good ideas all around Orothin! I'm something of a Holst fan myself. Smile

The design has advanced quite a bit since this post, and we'll be revealing a bit of it soon. I'm personally super-excited about the planned creature lineup. As a teaser, I can tell you that one of your ideas is quite close to the plan.

That is great to hear!

Later on I could help with graphics a bit, especially with the design.
Can't wait to see the line-up!
