    You could make more chapters but however nice job.
    4/5 but I'll give you 5 because others are giving you too low rates.

    Simple and straightforward, quick to complete (took me <1hour) and funny. No-brainer and for relaxing - just the way I like it. Also I didn't encounter a single bug, which is very nice.

    Things I'd improve (update or in future projects):
    1. Too simple and straightforward. Try to add side quests or perhaps some non-linearity or at least aim to make more challenging opponents (as someone pointed out, mission 3 is AFK-completable).
    2. I can't distinguish Frederick form other footmen, maybe make him a bit bigger or give him an aura? Kinda annoying that he doesn't stand out at all.
    3. Since the campaign isn't serious, maybe it's reasonable to add even more humor. I dunno, maybe include Fredricks wive or kids in future campaign? Could turn out to be funny ;D

    Nightmare~

    1. First campaign being easy is a good thing, but I'll definitely bump difficulty up for the next two I'm planning.
    2. I might make him bigger, but an aura is out of the question.
    3. That's actually a nice idea, haha. I'll see what I can do.

    Well now, I think this is actually not worse than Redemption.

    chap1:
    -Kenneth can be attacked
    -just a "kill the units on the map" level

    chap2:
    -why should the Peasants still have the Call to Arms ability if Militia can now be trained?
    -lack of ranged units

    chap3:
    -no siege weaponry. Not even ranged units for attacking, not spell casters
    -why do orcish buildings have blight under them?
    -Frederick has no ultimate spell. I think no hero has such
    -the fortress doesn't really look like a city, it's just wide flat terrain surrounded by walls and trees
    -the downside of the AI is that they do not rebuild. Likewise in the previous level. Moreover the player has two allies and the AI is just one

    The lack of units is mostly what makes this campaign not good though having a weak hero is/leads to an interesting game play mechanic.

    Short, simple and enjoyable. :) In dedication to our cute little footman, whom tragedy befell so swiftly:

    Our good Frederick,
    short in legs, but great of heart,
    brave, though weak,
    vanished in a fart. :/

    Seriously where is he? He can't be dead! >:'(

    Stress-less/relaxing campaign. Not sure what that item the thunder lizard dropped in chapter 2 does.

    I liked how purple (Alice) and light blue (the knight hero) had different army compositions for the final level--- purple being caster mostly, while light blue was mostly melee.

    Fun and short campaign, the 3 missions avaible are very fun, but you should consider make optional quests, the terrain was good except for the final map.
    It has a touch of comedy f.e. Frederick was chosen(by a monkey with rabies), had a good laugh.

    Having a footman as a hero is fun, with normal damage and normal armor of a footman being able to upgrade it, was interesting.

    The end was good, leaving space for another campaign, I'm eager to play your next campaign
    If you already made the new campaign you should change the final text in the mission including the name of your campaign

    Didn't find any bugs
    Played in v1.21b

    Haha, thank you-- don't know if i'll ever get around to doing so.
    The initial plan was to have Sir Leon, a Footman from Lordaeron and Volt, a Footman from Gilneas be set in the Second and Third wars respectively. Same thing happens to them. All three meet up and a fourth campaign with all of them.

    Sounds fun, building a story between those 3, I imagine those campaigns would also have been short

    Btw Is your other campaign Redemption connected to the footmen?

    The aforementioned Sir Leon appears in it as a cameo but that's about it.
