    Welcome to THW's Legendary Terrain thread. Any terrain piece that we decide is worthy will be uploaded to this thread for all the little newbies to gaze in awe at. A legendary terrain is both perfectly-executed, original and usually sparks some influence in future pieces by newer terrainers. Contest-winning terrains have a much higher chance of being added to this thread, although it is not guaranteed.

    If you've found a piece that you think should be here, post a link in this thread, and I'll consider it.

    Well, MadseN's terrains are quite legendary... but I doubt that newcommers would have any help from them:p.

    I'll look up some pics of legendary terrains now.

    And for the arrangement, let's first post a crapload of good terrains here, and then one of us ordens them in a thread and we request a sticky;)

    Hmm I don't think all of MadseN's terrains are legendary. Maybe they were in their times but now that I look back at them, I can see many flaws. But one of his that definitely should be mentioned is his Frozen Throne picture, that's just pure awesomeness and as far as I know, original (for terrains at least).

    Alright, I agree, lets just look at all terrain showcases, and other terrain pics that come to mind, and try to find the best of the best like, some for great lighting, (why I picked yours off the bat void), good environment, contruction with doodads, creativity, and any other categories you can think of...

    So lets see some pics!

    I'd say anyone of MadseN's could fit in here. I don't think you can find enough flaws to degrade them.

    One or two should be picked only though. Maybe a couple of Voids, and I know Belgarath has a couple pretty l33t ones. Tassadoom for sure. [Death]. Gehjis (spelling?) has a bunch. 2-P, Correx, and Bur. There are some older terrainers that could be added, can't remember names.

    Those don't count too much as terrains ... rather as ... artworks. Terrains have to have some type of landscape with it - hence the name terrains.

    Nah. Terrains aren't "terrains" as much as "terrain editor art". Of course some of them actually do have terrain, it's really anything made in the editor with doodads/tiles.

    Anyways some suggestions are bur's northrend outpost, just for pure originality of using the rock doodad to make a brick (common now but not then) and definitely tassadoom's moss monster for originality too, the rest of his are great but again, nothing that hasn't really been done before. Corexx's robot of course and 2-P's planet.

    It's at WC3Campaigns art gallery. It's pretty recent so it should be in the first few pages.

    @belgarath: How many times must I go over this... it's the top of a hill not the light stopping.

    I know what it ACTUALLY is, but I was pointing out how it looks like.

    I thought it would be a sticky thread with links to the terrains at the first post, not this mess.

    It would be much easier to someone new to find the cool terrains in a neat thread, with all of them linked at the first post. And it would be good to do not be closed, to allow the people to suggest new terrains to the post.

    Maybe. I think Craka's word would be very needed.

    But before asking him, you should do it.

    With your skills, you can easily make a terrain that I would accept to join the thread.

    Maybe, if you are having time, you can make a terrain and post it, and I'll specially tip you in the things I think that could be improved, and you'll also recieve critcism from the other users, to make a terrain a bit better then the ones at your showcase and then I'll suggest it to be at the thread.

    Yes, you can easily do it in my opinion.

    Yeah, a lot of my problem is inspiration, coming up with something nobody has really done before, or just come up with a kickass terrain. I can't find 2-p's planet, anyone got a link, or direction?
