    I don't think we are allowed to use WoW animations for modeling contest. That would not be alright after all.

    This. The disparity in detail would lead to a tremendous advantage if WoW meshes or animations are involved. Merges and transfers are restricted to classic.

    Are we limited to one entry? I have 3 variations now :p

    I'm also gonna make a WC1 orc Temple with the custom meshes from the altar, that will probably be my final entry and the same stand work animation (with the blood pool).

    Indeed we are. :) To avoid confusion about your bundle, please use both the internal name and file name to indicate which one your entry is.

    That's what I thought. I think I'll make the Temple my entry though.

    Entry: Templo Mayor

    Status: WIP 1, (building mesh is done "awaiting export to milkshape", details like winged serpent statue and blood basin on the way)

    Short Description: my own interpretation of the Aztec's main temple/pyramid.

    Lore and extra words

    Lore: The "Templo Mayor" was the main temple of the Aztec’s religion, dedicated to the rain god Tlaloc (blue) and their patron and god of war Huitzilopochtli (red). In their mythology the gods sacrificed themselves to create the incarnations of the world, so the Mexica people had to do constant blood sacrifices (human and animal) to sustain their gods. Over the centuries tens of thousands were ritually sacrificed on this pyramid, ¡definitively a bloodthirsty building!

    PS 1: I am not an architect nor an historian/archaeologist, and my goal is to mix fantasy elements and legends with the historic building. My own interpretation if I may.

    PS 2: this temple was expanded at least 7 times during its centuries long life. If I got enough time I will try to make it a 3 tier building so it can work as a Townhall.

    PS 3: I'm not Mexican, although I lived and worked on that country for almost a decade. Their culture is delightful, and I hope to homage it at least a little.

    Parameters used to design the Aztec building (engineering software, not the best for warcraft models, but I use what I got licenses for)

    That pyramid is definitely exciting for its Troll potential! Would love to see it as a 3-tier Town Hall.

    Hard to tell what's going on; is the skeleton being summoned? As part of a Work animation?

    It's a spell animation. The skeleton is just floating up and down a little bit, while blood is poring out and flowing down into the trough. The left one is with an additive filter on the blood, and the right one without.
    I think I'm going with the right one. Gonna upload it soon, I think it's finished (unless I have another idea for an animation).

    I prefer how the right one looks for sure. Also - nice concept and nice execution. I suggest you look at the top of some of these rocks and wrap them a little better though.
