I have been working through the Necropolis campaign and at one point found myself in possession of an opposing town with a lot of creatures ready to be hired. However, when I went to the Hall of Heroes to hire a hero whose skills would match up with the creatures, I could find no way to hire a hero from a faction other than my own.

During the campaigns, can you hire heroes from opposing factions in Heroes VI?

I have no idea about campaign, but I know you can in custom games just by picking them from the hall of heroes. – Mr Smooth Nov 4 '11 at 15:28
@MrSmooth - does the list of heroes just scroll left to right in that case? Or is there a faction button somewhere on the screen (that I might be missing)? – au revoir Nov 4 '11 at 15:33
It just scrolls left to right, with arrows to click to see the ones that don't fit on the screen. – Mr Smooth Nov 4 '11 at 15:46

No, I don't believe there is. I would suggest using a hero whose innate skill is not creature related (either something spell related or a non-combat benefit).
