The five horseman were pretty cool, but I think S2 can do even better!
Basically, these will be seven new alt avatars based on the Seven Deadly Sins man can perform according to Christianity.
You can read up on the sins here http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Seven_deadly_sins
And perhaps purchasing all of these skins might unlock an eighth one. Which will be a 'pure good/altruist' avatar (Archangel valkyrie, Jesus Martyr or Dante Fayde).
I was thinking about these heroes:
Lust - Succubus (seduction)
Gluttony - Devourer (Endless hunger)
Greed - Soulstealer or Corrupted Disciple (Not 100% sure here, yet. It should be some one obsessed with obtaining something)
Sloth - Balphagore (lazy fat man)
Wrath - Madman (Anger/rage) or Torturer (wrath)
Envy - Defiler (Jealous of the living) or Puppet Master (alt skin is a non-living entity that envies life)
Pride - Artesia (Proud Master wizard obsessed with achieving power)
If you think other heroes fit better please tell me. Some of them couldn't fit perfectly as I tried to keep the avatars on the hellbourne side.
In spoiler: Bunch of Homunculuses representing the seven sins in the anime Full Metal Alchemist.
In the far back: Sloth.
From left to right: Wrath, Gluttony, Lust, Pride (back), Envy (front), Greed
Then a picture for Dante Fayde and a picture for Archangel Valk.

I think that Greed should be Midas, he transmutes everything into gold. I think there's a possibility of putting Maliken as pride also.
art isnt obsessed by power, she joined the hellbourne to bring back her dead husband
great idea though
sig by redeye998
I considered that as well, but Midas is a legion hero unfortunately. And just like the 5 horsemen I'd like to keep the heroes on the hellbourne sides (they are the sinners!)
I was under the impression that Artesia joined the hellbourne ranks because she was an incredibly powerful archmage and that usually results in corruption. I have also read her background information which states that she wants to revive her husband, but somehow I just remember reading that she went hellbourne in search of power when she was just released. Not entirely sure if that is still true or if I made that up.
Looks good except Greed should be Soul Stealer or Corrupted Disciple, Envy could also be puppet master.Lust - Succubus (seduction)
Gluttony - Devourer (Endless hunger)
Greed - Blood hunter? (this one was hard, maybe BH, SS or SR fits this as they are greedy for other peopl's flesh/souls)
Sloth - Balphagore (lazy fat man)
Wrath - Madman (Anger)
Envy - Defiler (Jealous of the living)
Pride - Artesia (Obsessed with achieving power)
And who is the biggest gambler in HoN?
Dude I was thinking about Seven Deadly Sins alt avatar before one week and was about to create a topic in suggestion forum but then I saw your signature in one other topic and I was like :OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO
Pride- Lord Salforis wouldn't be bad but I think that legion heroes will fit in deadly sins too because you know even if they fight on the good side and be the good guys every man on the planet have sinned and has his sins. So blacksmith and Midas fit greed a lot. Also Monarch will fit in Pride role really good too(listen to her lines).

Yeah but I feel all heroes should be on one side (because like the horsemen there will also be background lore). Making the legion team a bunch of sinners just doesn't feel right
Puppetmaster as envy would be great! Because we are talking about alternative avatars here it doesn't necessarily have to be a man holding a puppet. The hero could actually be some sort of puppet / inhuman being itself that is jealous of the real living heroes.
And artesia = pride just feels so right to me. She really has this 'I am the mightiest magician alive, every single one of you is below my level' feel to her.
I'll update the post with greed and envy.
skins must be the homunculis from the anime fullmetal alchemist brotherhood.
The idea is nice and if I recall right S2 did some alts that din't quite lived to my expectations, some were ugly as hell (like pestilence or sand wraith horseman... ugh!).
Of course they can always add new alts the important thing is that they should match their trait, like Succubuss being Lust not only because of her flirty nature and her desing.
Yes she would be a first pick for a Lust skin alt but think that Fayde or Dark Lady might get a shot at it too. Even Empath since... her's are better than Ophelia's.
I also like the part where you mentioned unlockable alts, there should be more of these around and I dig the idea of an Archangel/Seraph Valkyrie (her current alt drives me crazy to top it off).
As hero sugestion I would say that most of what you wrote down are already good but I would give a few sugestions if I may:
Wrath - Accursed (He has some in-game quotes that are related to his wrath but that's not the only reason; he already embodies a sense of wrath in his design and some other things I can't quite explain without writing the possible background of his past).
Pride - Salforis (one of the heaviest sins in my religion, I can't see any other hero resemble. Salforis just fits in this like a glove on a hand. S2 made him a death rider alt and that doesn't fit him since death belongs to Soul Reaper).
Greed - Soul Stealer (what's there to say besides the fact that you need max cap of souls each time you jump in a fight; this hero has possibly the highest creep killing ratio I ever seen in games probably besides Midas. Midas also crossed my mind as a potential Greed alt, but since you like the idea of hellbourne taking the spotlight I just flowed with the wave, though a man that is plated in gold stands out for a Greed alt pick).
I absolutely LOVE this idea.
Yes - Lust - Succubus (seduction)
Yes - Gluttony - Devourer (Endless hunger)
No - Greed - Soulstealer or Corrupted Disciple (Not 100% sure here, yet. It should be some one obsessed with obtaining something)
Midas would be a better choice.
No - Sloth - Balphagore (lazy fat man)
I would pick Armadon. He almost looks like a sloth as is.
Or bubbles. He is a slow talker so it would fit.
Maybe - Wrath - Madman (Anger)
I also think Torturer would be a great choice for this.
No Comment - Envy - Defiler (Jealous of the living) or Puppet Master (alt skin is a non-living entity that envies life)
Maybe - Pride - Artesia (Proud Master wizard obsessed with achieving power)
I would say Jera would fit more. The Proud paladin.
Then as an 8th i say empath.
It's a great idea, but I think the Legion need a little bit more love here. You said it yourself, the alt avatar doesn't have to actually be the hero. Also focusing on the hero's skills might be a better idea than on their lore.
Anyway, +1 to the yes vote.
If anyone could tell me whether it's possible to turn a .s2z into a .honmod, that would be much appreciated.
Why do the S2 employees never comment in such threads? :s
This is a brilliant idea. That succubus is awesome. I want a sexy, good and human-looking succubus, like in that pic. The alts are crap for her. One is red and the other one was limited (and gay).
but u should do that after purchasing all of this alts u get a free alt just like the doom knigts collection
in addition feel free to check out my colletion reveiws are rlly apprecaited
Some artwork can be apprecaited so we can maybe excpect how the alts will look like

To the above poster: You can read the opening post more carefully, I have suggested a free avatar if you purchase all the sins! You can find some artwork in the spoiler.
The thread currently surpassed 85% approval so I applied for an upgrade to tier 1 suggestion
Sloth in the sins isn't literally meaning the animal Sloth but just laziness (the sloth we know today was named after it because it moves so slow and is lazy)
Madman for one isn't mad, he's crazy and they are 2 different things. Torturer would be good for this though.
Pride and proud are 2 different things, Pride is self vanity (loving yourself) and proud is to be proud of someone else, not yourself. Jera would not fit with this at all, Maliken would be better.
There are only 7 sins...................
