    Awesome. I'm not sure if I'm up for it, as the theme is quite the challenging one, especially for a mere beginner like me. Although if I will indeed join, I'm quite certain I'll make a model edit, as I didn't really try modeling anything non-attachment in Milkshape yet...

    I would like to join in, but I think I can't make anything epic.

    So, can I be the judge :grin:?

    I shall join and my creation will be so epic, so utterly incredible. SO COLOSSAL. That the very foundations of the hive shall tear itself asunder at the mere though of a kickass model of such magnitude. YE BE WARNED!

    Have I told what titan-sized humanoid I'm going to make?
    No? Good. I'm not telling you until I show some progress.

    OH GOSH YES..

    So, being as how the theme is what it is, can I make a colossal structure? It doesn't just have to be a biped unit does it?

    Because, I could try modeling an entire medieval city.... ;)
