Heroes of Azeroth (Heroes 3 Warcraft mod)

Being a fan of the Heroes of Might and Magic games I got inspired to create a map in Reforged by looking at the awesome new models the Blizzard devs have created. I’m a 3D/Technical Artist by profession so I probably geeked out a bit more than I should have over the new models. Nonetheless, I noticed almost every regular unit has an “upgraded” version and that got me thinking how perfect that is for a HOMM type map. So I started working on this a few of months ago (as soon as the World Editor for Reforged was available), and this will be my little tribute to the Warcraft universe. – Ghullie (mod author)

I’ll release test versions as soon as I can, but there’s still much to do! Meanwhile I’m open towards suggestion on what people would like to see in such a map. That’s it for now & thanks for showing interest. – author
