    Now this one is very impressive.

    First two are as cool as expected for the contest but im still wondering if anyone will come up with The Dark Portal with illidan staring at you inside the fog.

    Got some time to put down a couple ideas, guess I'll join.
    Here are some WIPs, I don't know which one I'll pick as final entry, or if I'll actually be able to refine them.
    I'm counting both units and doodads towards the 20 limit.

    Those are some pretty cool scenes, Arrr. If you pick one a polish it it could be real cool!

    I especially like the creativeness.

    And that's some really nice sandstorm effects Avahor, you really managed to make those units
    shine as much as humanly possible. It's just a shame you didn't use better looking models.

    Do, please do!

    Interesting development, also, a tip: The green selection circle for the camera is visible.

    Try making another camera off-screen, and then select it after you've set the angle, then
    that circle won't blemish your shot. Or, alternatively, set the camera and then go to the
    doodad pallet, and instead of using V you press S and K, then the sky and fog will show
    and you don't get the "Game View Settings" up in the corner.

    I couldn't get time to generate new ideas, but that's it!

    Anyway, this is my entry. Nothing is changed from the previous WIP.

    Good luck, guys! :]

    In @Neruvatar 's defense I think ZangarmarshHutV1 is making it seem like there are many doodads being used.
