Hm... Apep has become Wadjet? Curious... I've heard of Wadjet as being a snake, not an alligatoresque creature.

Valkyrie is a mythological being of Norse origin...said to take warriors to Valhalla when they died in battle..their chicks with helmets that have wings on them

I come from under the hill , and under the hill and over the hills my paths have led. And through the air. I am he that walks unseen. I am the clue-finder, the web-cutter, the stinging fly.I was chosen for the lucky number.
I am he that buries his friends alive and drowns them and draws them alive again from the water. I came from the end of a bag, but no bag went over me. I am the friend of bears and the guest of eagles. I am Ringwinner and Luckwearer; and I am Barrel-rider

Well, a quick search of Wadjet with Yahoo, and consultation with Spined Scythe's Egypt God(dess) List confirms that Wadjet is a cobra goddess that protects Lower Egypt. I thought she had replaced the Apep since it's not on the list, but in was in the screenshots two weeks ago.

Dude... you really should read all the replies (especially when they are less than 10) before posting. I preview first 'cause it'll show if a new reply was posted while I typed.

The cyclops is Greek. I voted for the phoenix, it's an Egy unit, and it's on fire.

Wadjet might just be a name change, it might be a graphics change too, or it could be a totally new unit. I'm guessing it's not since it's the only addition to the list of MUs, and Apep is the only one no longer there, so it seems more likely that Wadjet is a change of Apep, not a totally new unit.

Wadjet looks like winged cobra.

Quoted from thawky, long ago:

Snakes? Probably.
Winged flying snakes? Probably not.

You sure Wadjet had wings? That's the first time I've seen her depicted with wings... maybe it's some combination of Wadjet and Nekhbet (which, being a vulture, explains the wings)?

Often shown as a rearing cobra, she was a protector of the pharaoh, ready to strike and kill his enemies. She was also depicted as a woman-headed cobra, a winged cobra, a lion-headed woman, or a woman wearing the red crown of Lower Egypt. She was often shown together with Nekhbet who was in an identical form - as a snake or woman - or paired together with Wadjet as a snake and Nekhbet as a vulture.

I voted for the Phoenix, it's my favorite unit for the moment (well-animated, flying with attack ability, satisfies my pyro element ).

I voted Valkyrie, cuz I hope they will make it into the game, even if they aren't yet. I would rather have flying valkyries than flying crows for the Norse.

How come gullinbursti, hydras, and krakens aren't on the list? There are probably more that are in AOM that I have not mentioned, but if hydras were on the list, I would have definitely voted for them.

Just to clarify my post, I never said gullinbursti, the hydra, or the kraken were ever cut, they just weren't on the list. And now that I ithink about it, Pegasus, Odins crows, and scorpion men aren't on the list either.

Anyone from ES want to clarify why these specific units weren't on the list?
