    So how many icons it is? 3 or 4?

    I will take on Iron Golem/ Goblin Shredder.

    It has to be in-game unit and non hero.

    That's something what we (Deolrin & I) were trying to point out on the first page... Should be set at a certain number for consistency. (Preferably 4 ability icons, one Hero icon)

    Ooh, I had a Goblin "Warmech" hero planned ages ago... Very excited to see this.


    Uhh, yeah I know. But earth elementals are in Wc3. Granted they go by different names ("mud/stone/granite golem"), but I think we all know what I'm talking about.

    I will participate as well. Good luck to you guys!
    It would be a nice re-doing I suppose, as the result along with the abilities would be a more complete set of icons for the hero; but the contest clearly states "abilities", so I think not.

    It's not a requirement. So it's not.

    So just to be clear, I know it's 4 ability icons for sure as a MUST. If contestants wished to add in a hero icon as well, would they be permitted to, or would those icons be excluded from the pack for rating purposes for the sake of fairness to those who don't want to make said hero icon?

    Also, is the contest strictly turning non-hero units into heroes, or could making a new batch of abilities for an already existing hero also be considered?

    Lets spice it up. Give me suggestion for which unit to pick. Perhaps something that would be usefull for the hive. Like if we didnt have enough furbold icons or something

    This is strictly for non-Hero units. e.g. the Banshee or Footman.

    Four is a requirement. I see no reason to add a fifth icon.
