    A bit too early but nonetheless much appreciated mate.

    Also, the contest span will be a month if it doesn't work, I think we could hold mini-contests instead to see what can work around.

    I grow tired of months long contests since much can happen within a month's span of it.

    Will look into it either way :]

    Voted for Abomination, Cyberpunk, Dystopian, Melee and Prime.

    Cyberpunk, Melee and Prime would be especially interesting for me. All of these three can have tons of details in them and can be really unique. This applies if youre a solid modeller though :D but i like creating ideas even if i wont he able to get them to live in 3D!

    I beg to differ. For instance, Fortress + Minion is one of the leading options. A month can be constricting for those aiming for custom animations.

    Perhaps a month and 15 days?

    There are too many good ideas on this one. :D Hard to vote for just 5.

    I think they could stand to be more defined & explained... Especially something like "Hourglass of Time" (would a single one Contest Theme be chosen for all, or would each contestant pick their own old Contest Theme (i.e. chaos)??)

    A mini-modeling contest is perhaps more apt, given the level of participation that the last contest garnered.

    Please add new themes such as:
    • Lovecraftian - Models that are wiggly, tentacly, bulbous and pulpy, and all with some grossness of slime and absence of red blood and gore.
    • Necromechanicals - Models such as mechanically augmented or embedded in undead flesh and parts.
    • Siege Weapon with Minions - Models that resemble a powerful siege weapon operated by some minions with at least 2 or more.
    • Emotion-Based - Models inspired and manifested from emotions, or physical/metaphysical/astral manifestation of such.
    • Giants - Yes, big towering hulks you can imagine. From element-based giants, forest giants, human giants, statues, and fattened creatures.
    • Ironic Ones - Something that is like a demon who uses holy powers, orc that is fully armored with elven and human features, arcane wizard that has chaotic and fel costumes and powers. Model combination of two opposing forces.
    • Submersible Buildings.
    • Floating Structures - Yes, like Necropolis. That can fly, perhaps.
    • Phoenixian - Any model that is everglowing, everblazing. Could be ground or air. Anything that has constant blaze all over the body, could use different colours.

    Thank you for the suggestions. I've added some to the poll.
    I think Necromechanicals falls under Abomination.

    • Clarified the Hourglass of Time.
    • New proposed span: June 10 to August 20.
    • Changed the maximum votes from 5 to 7.

    Not that I'm against repeating Contest Themes generally, but of all the ones to repeat, why Emotions?

    Sure. Once we get a theme that's not about Buildings. Sorry but these tend to be troublesome.

    But buildings are the bessssssst.

    Also we have so few & *desperately* need more.

    Also they are relatively easier compared to units (flat straight lines vs. organic curves), right?

    What Kyrbi0 said.

    They are the bestest.

    Also, should probably not have included them in the poll then, if that is the consensus.

    Paired and Mythical seem more attractive if you ask me.
