Default Fantasy Friday XXXI - Unique Battalion Formations Part II

FANTASY FRIDAY XXXI
Unique Battalion Formations Part II

Welcome back! Today we're resuming our discussions over Dawn of Fantasy's many unique/specialized unit formations.We'll get to the formations in a moment, but for the earlier information on battalions, check out the Standard Battalions FF or Unique Battalion Formations Part I. Each race has a couple standard formations, applicable to all militant battalions, and each orc and human military unit has a specialized, unique formation that significantly boosts their strengths and encourages a new degree of micromanagement on the battlefield.

This weeks Fantasy Friday may be small but other formations are still in the creation process. So stay tuned for those. Without further ado, we'll start with showing you the unique formations of six units for Part II. Enjoy!

I think the elves have a lot of perks being able to have both an aggressive and defensive stance, should be interesting to see how quickly my orcs destroy them anyways! HAH

Yeah, the elven formations are totally overpowered compared to rest, but seeing the fatigue cost and the time it takes to switch formation its not really suprising. It's easy to destroy or severily maim a enemy battalion in less than 30 secs, especially for orcs.

Those formations look really cool and unique! I really like how they are making a huge impact on the gameplay and aren't just something that's there for no reason other than to look cool. I can really see most of these formations making or breaking a battle very easily.

Nice showcase and look forward to more info next week!

I want to make my own unique formation, i'll call it "The swarm" it'll basically be a mass of ogres with a few dragons overhead coming down to crush the puny elven formations.

Isn't that "The Tank of Doom"? because with "The Swarm" i think of zerg, and then zerglings, and then hordes of goblins.

You make a point, but the word tank just doesn't belong in the orcs linguistic database.
