    Oh darn, I was pretty sure my model was good. I was trying to make the most serious and useful model possible, but i guess i failed.:goblin_cry:

    not a serious entry? are you kidding me?
    :ogre_datass:
    You guys are obviously all jealous because shaman can model way better than ya'll. and faster too. I cant even imagine how long it took him to make that from scratch. Personally, i cant imagine anyone beating that model. Perfect use of ingame textures, amazing high-poly detailed mesh, and as always, great particle work. this thing is going to be in 1st place for sure, you just wait

    :O! Don't you dare talk like that about Shamanyouranus's model! It represents the world as it is, this model should be included in all maps, and in all games, and in real life, and in Starcraft 2! You all are just another horde of jealous maggots :ogre_rage:!!!!!@@!!@3@!!!111!!!11!!!!!!elevenelevenoneoneone!1!
    His model is... beautiful!:ogre_love:
    If you like it...:ogre_haosis:
    If you hate it...:ogre_frown:

    Actually, he copied all the body meshes from the existing ones. :ogre_hurrhurr:

    No, but, I think, it's one awsome idea, and the fart spell is totally ownage :ogre_hurrhurr:

    Yes, really. The new one looks too futuristic compared to the rest of the tower. And the 'roundness' kind of bugs me. It doesn't fit.
    But that's just my opinion.

    The Cannon Tower has a similar turret, so I don't see what the problem is.

    I just did some brainstorming/sketching now about a good tower idea...

    towers2.JPG
    this could be an armadillo morphing/uprooting/burrowing tower that attacks melee when uprooted (armadillo bites) and attacks ranged when burrowed (energy ball gets energized by nature's energy and shoots energy bolts yay)

    towers3.jpg
    I like this one a lot, its concept is a goat-skeleton based creepy tower that spits inferno-like fire by its mouth, I'd probably try to make a low-poly version of my Fetish interact with the tower. Facing could be a bit of a problem, but maybe I make a spinning neck :)
    I want the fire to make sense, not just be "magical". So I put a cauldron there. there's gotta be a way to blow the fire coming from the cauldron ahead thru the skull.

    nothing special about this one, it's just a twisted wizard towerish thing :ugly:

    A good tower idea... As far as I can see it is three, but the second one looked best.
