Contestants were to design and model a mechanical creature using their favorite 3D modeling software for the Warcraft III Reforged HD graphics. Their creation could be a mechanized animal, a futuristic robotic being, or anything else their imagination can tinker with! Their mechanical masterpiece should be of a fully mechanical creature i.e. no living organic matter, muscles, no beating heart at it's core. Only heat, magic or steam etc. should power your mechanical creation.
