Experimental shop is an adventure map location, and commonly known as one of the creature banks. It is guarded by 40–160 Iron Golems. As a reward for defeating the Iron Golems, 1, 2, 3 or 4 Giants will join the hero's army. The more Iron Golems there are, the more Giants will join.

The guards are divided into five stacks of 8/16/24/32 Iron Golems (red hexes) and attacking in alphabetic order from A to E.

The hero's troops are located in blue hexes 1-7 (a tail hex for two-hexed creatures) accordingly to stack positioning in the army. But if the hero has less than 7 stacks, e.g. 3, they will be placed in hexes 1-3 no matter how they were placed in the army.

Though war machines are not available, the infinite shots effect of Ammo Cart is active.

Slain enemies do not respawn (should the hero retreat or be defeated).
