Time to laugh! Read this strip made for you on the Website (http://ubi.li/Wa8ET) or Facebook (http://www.facebook.com/MightandMagic) and share it with your friends if you like it!
Also, discover the Orc evolution in the M&M universe, from the first M&M game up to Heroes VI! Check out the Visuals (http://static2.ubi.com/uk/mm/history-of-the-orcs_v2.jpg), they've evolved in an incredible way donít you think?

The Centaurs revolted along with the Orcs during the Orc Rebellion and though some formed independent herds, most joined forces with Orc Tribes, choosing to live near them. Having both thrown off the yoke of the Wizards of the Silver Cities, these kindred souls often share encampments for several nights at a stretch, recounting stories of their shared histories. The Centaurs have remained loyal allies to this day.

The last 2 could have been screens from in-game models too http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_razz.gif

Wow, they looked truly terrible in a lot of the older games! The new ones look great. I'd say they're the best ones yet, although the Heroes V ones give them a run for their money.

That MM2 Orc is so damn funny! http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/88.gif

I gotta wonder why did the H3 Orc turn green?

I for one liked the boar-faced orcs. Heroes III designs are more uninspired than the credit people gives it...

But in Heroes VI they have a lot personality, I can't fault them on that.

I do believe that the reason behind the green non boar/pig-faced Orc's design in H3, is because it was done in spirits with the mass copying or at least being inspired from D&D's units. I never liked the Boarfaced Orcs of the other games but at least I thought they were much prefferable than the H3 ones.

Really funny to see how the orcs have evolved through the years :P However, no one is better than the H2 Orc and it's pose, the best and most terrifying one =P

Yah I think you're right about that. What was weird though was that the original orc (pig-faced design) shows up in the H3 Stronghold puzzle map, despite being absent from the game.

The Heroes 2 orc is definitely my fav, by far! My second favorite would have to be the orc from MM3 though.

I'm looking at the new orcs now, and they look more like ogres than orcs to me. I think the reason why they look that way, and the reason why the Heroes 2 orc looks the best, is because of the boar's head portrayed by the Heroes 2 orc. It fits really well into the character of an orc.

Btw they're supposed to be shamans, and at least not completely on steroids.
