We're excited to announce the Avatar Shuffle! This monthly contest gives the community a sneak peek at some ofthe awesome content that we're developing AND gives you a chance to influence when these new alt avatars come to the Goblin Shop! Below, you will find four pieces of concept art for upcoming alt avatars! It is your job to vote for which one you want to see in the game. At the end of the week, we'll tally up the votes and announce the winning concept art, which will begin it's journey to become a part of HoN.
Once the winner is chosen, it is removed from the pool of concepts and a brand new one replaces it for next month's vote. This means that there's always a new piece of art to check out and vote for. Plus, if you're a huge fan of something that doesn't win, it still has a good chance of being voted in next month! This way, all of the pieces of concept art you see here will eventually be added into the game for everyone to enjoy.
With all that said, here are your choices!
First up is someone you surely recognize: Scorcher. This piece of art has been around for a number of years now and been the subject of a lot of discussion. However, it was never used for anything in HoN and we want to change that! If he is voted in this Shuffle contest, what hero he's used for will be determined in a special way that will be announced after the votes are tallied.
The second choice is one of the original pieces of artwork for Tempest. He's a lot more humanoid than the regular hero and has some really interesting touches that we feel would look great in game! If he is voted as the winner of this contest, this would become a new Tempest alt avatar.
Then we have a piece of art that harkens to times long past in Newerth. Before the current war began, our beloved Maliken looked a bit different and this concept illustrates that he wasn't always AS bad as he is now. If this is voted as the winner, it would become a new Maliken alt avatar!
And finally we have the Archmage. This is another piece of art that has been around for some time but we don't have a specific hero in mind for it! If this is voted to be the winner, we will determine what hero it is used for in a special way.
Which will you choose? Voting ends at 16:00 EDT on Friday, June 1st so get in your choice and support your favorites! Hopefully, you'll get to see them in game soon.

All of them look good but tempest is the most unique, non bipedal and floating purple meatballs. That effect will be so awesome. Scorcher would be number 2 on y list though.
archmage for thunderbringer/pyromancer(different colors skills)
They're all bad :x
And I don't understand how tempest and maliken are different from their normal models (except for mali's helmet...)
SCORCHER!!!!!!!!! aww yeah
YOU HAVE CAPTAIN DIOMEDES. YOU ARE READY FOR WAR NOW. YOU ARE READY TO EXCEL.
Finally, a chance to use old concept art. I always thought that the Tempest concept looks waaay nicer than he does now.
But please, if it should win, at least change the look of his minions, if not all of his effects. Maybe like arcane magic, all purple, that'd be cool.
Old Maliken concept for sure.
Alt suggestion - Steampunk Balphagore:
Modifications - Hats and junk :
No! Make scorcher into a hero! I've been waiting to play him for years but I want him to be the main avatar
Man they're all awesome, where have you been hiding this amazing concept art S2?
YOU NEED TO HIRE THAT ARTIST AGAIN!
I dunno who to vote, i hope they all get into the game soon.
Maliken looks so badass!!! D:
this was not done by me, all is Maniucun`s work from devianart
And btw, that Scorcher alt would fit both Vindicator and Magebane very well.
