So I was digging in the animation files and found some interesting things.
So lets play a game, type how many of these you did know and how many suprised you  Idea!



Did you know that:

1) Archer from knight castle is a girl
IMG:
 

2) Mages life source is a gem in his staff
IMG:
 

3) Dwarf uses only one hand to attack down because he has short arms
IMG:
 

4) Dragons are so fat they are rising dust and dirt from the ground when they fall
IMG:
 

5) Bone dragons are actually a diferent, older species, since they have a diferent ammount of fingers.
It is more than that. Since I am myself a fan of dragons: the more fingers/toes they have, the higher the rank, with five meaning imperial dragon and ones with less claws are older, more primal
IMG:
 

6) Centaurs are emo and have only four fingers
IMG:
 

7) Cyclops has green eye
IMG:
 

8.) Elves are designed after robin hood
IMG:
 

9) Goblins listen to metal and they are dabbing before death
IMG:
 

10) Halflings are holding a stone
IMG:
 

11) Golem loses his arms when he falls
IMG:
 

12) Medusa snakes are escaping when she dies
IMG:
 

13) Mummy has a mouth and there is a body inside
IMG:
 

14) Orc crossbow has a really weird butt (stock)
IMG:
 

15) Pikeman loves to sing
IMG:
 

16) Spirite wings are her power source and they glow
IMG:
 

17) Trolls are capable of doing magic and they summon themselves new stones
IMG:

Hmmm, I didn't know 2,6,7,9,13, but most of my life B.M. (Before Mod) I was sure that archer is a man Smile  Cyclops eat too much crystals. Don't be like Cyclops  Razz

5. This is interesting. Dragons in H1 have only 3 claws! Still I think that on Enroth rules Pink  Did you know that... HoMM2 Units! 3584857407

This mummy... I will be wondering, who was this person inside for the rest of my life. I always thought, that it's empty. Necromancers are even more terrible now...

All this pics are beautiful. I can imagine how many people were polishing them to look so perfect and almost noone have seen it. I love such closed discoveries king

Great stuff! Both the War Troll's stone and Cavalier's mis-coloring slipped right into H3SW, but now I fixed it for the next version Very Happy

This is due to the fact that their cloud sprite is recycled from Heroes 1 grey cloud sprite, which appears when the Catapult fires the castle walls.
Spoiler:
 
Heroes 2 cloud is the same, if I recall correctly, and when the hero has zero Ballistics skill, sometimes the Catapult round falls to ground instead of hitting walls. There, a downscaled version of the same cloud is used.

That's because missile sprites are not upgraded like the creatures are Smile The game uses the same missile sprite for both creature versions.

This is interesting information! Also, recently I found out that the reason the knight's horse gets its tail cut off is because it's a Heroes 1 sprite. It only appears in the editor, not the actual game, where the sprite looks very different. Some of the editor hero sprites are recycled Heroes 1 sprites, which is interesting but at the same time makes me question why, lol.

Probably because the editor was made by other developers in the team. There is a seleciton of assets which was probably used as dummy sprites, such as adventure map hero sprites, several portraits (medium size version of Luna still comes from Heroes 1), probably some other heroes may have older H1 backgrounds too.

The editor also can place outdated alternative Graveyards during the creation of Random Maps, with them being unavailable in the standard game/user controlled editor.

There was a mod that re-adds the graveyards, wasn't there?
