    Looks sort of like a goblin or at least one of those that got twisted from Bhall's fall.

    Okay, i havent noticed the Kurios with Lamias. What Lamias are you referring too? Itd be very cool to think the snake-men lamias are the ones referred to here and are part of Kurios armies, although ive played Kurios before and have not seen any cool snake_people. Am I missing Something? (and if Lamias are not in fact included, they might not be a bad idea for recon)

    Lamia are going to be the Kuriorate arcane line.

    The model was amde by C. Roland, but has not been animated, and thus we have human mages for the Kuriorates for now.

    Kobolds aren't rat people (Unless your talking Warcraft...). But little lizard men, with light armor and short bows, agile and quick, running through streets, towns, forests, anything you could think of.

    My vote is Kuriotate cat-people and Sheim rat-men. They could fight.

    I'm pretty sure Kael shot this down and said that Kurio recon was going to be human...

    He said that he would prefer they be human, but that other members of the team like the half-beast theme more than he does and if the art team makes the good graphics a non-human recon line he would go ahead and include it.

    Why people allways links Kuriotates with Sheaim? The only thing which could connect them is Cult of the Dragons, but the reasons for accepting it is different, just like everything else. Also Kuriotates aren't opposite to Sheaim (I think Kurio is opposite to Dovielo and Sheaim to Elohim).

    End off-topic :) I add my voice to smal ferret-like creatures for Kurio.

    i think its because the sheim (well the veil) represent entropy and the kuriotate represent creation

    hmm, I think entropy is Infernals sphere and Sheaim is dimension.

    A completely new race, the Boobaria. They are pairs of Boobs kept afloat by long forgotten magic, and made sentient. However, due to the lack of eyes, they don't have any visibility range. However, that isn't a problem because whenever an enemy attacks, it deals no damage to the Boobaria, and has a 25% chance of being converted!

    Unless they are attacked by the Svartalfar, in which case the chance is only 10% of 25% = 2,5%:lol:

    Rat people: I would not like but I rarely build much recon. Tolerable, but only barely. Don't call them kobolds please.

    Halflings: A perfect excuse to wipe out the Kuriotates. Ever since I read LotR I have had an irresistable urge to slaughter all hobbits/halflings at sight. Not that I ever tried to resist it. "Wipe them out. All of them."

    Humans can be their melee/archers. Definitely not them.

    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    I voted for hotties. But of course I have my reasons. Perhaps lower combat stats but a chance to convert living units before combat, no harm done to either. If it is clearly unbalanced, you might make it an offense only trait so they can be killed easily if unprotected. Obviously they could not convert females, but only the Svartalfar army is predominantly female so it is not much of an issue. Loyal(ty) units should be immune rather than die.

    Alternatively you might give them appropriate (aka whatever you like) terrain adjustments and a charm person like spell.
