    I found one, hopefully it will work! I've already created some concepts for the model too. All I'll have to do now is the modelling haha D:

    Quick sketch

    Some kind of a portal with chains that connected on 2 worms (hidden/underground in building form) and those worms would drag the thing when they move, probably best for Undead race and the portal could be used for producing the ghost type units.

    In Magos'/WC3, the plant detail gets lost when zoomed out, unlike in Blender:

    In other words, I am fucked.

    One of my previous concepts was a portal with chains too. :D
    I look forward to your entry.

    Loving the WIPs so far; love chains, & very interested to see what the altar-thing turns into/produces.

    For clarification, can we have a flying building as the default and only version? I'm considering it if things go sideways with the stationary ground structure.

    I wanna participate to this but I lack animations skills :( and not sure if I'll get the necessary time but well count me in anyway even though I'm not sure to have a result at the end.
    my idea is a flying insect creature that morphs into a building by landing to the ground and laying eggs (I'm not sure if that counts as a building though)

    Edit : first wip

    I'll go for a mantis like creature

    Brain storming with some designs, got some interesting part that i liked but i ended up not liking most of the shapes... Because i tried too hard to make it somewhat like a worm's head i guess haha:

    [​IMG]


    Then i kind of came up with this, still debating on the shape:

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]


    Trying out the bottom part, trying to get the "underground" part to look abit like a ship... not so successful so far:

    [​IMG]


    The chains would come out from those holes, now my brain is still thinking if it wants 1 big or 2 small worms.

    Ah haha yeah there's a game i played really long time ago that had a flying castle with those hugeee snakes and stuff chained onto it, was pretty cool and i thought it was a pretty nice design :)

    I kinda gave up on the "Ship" part because this is supposed to be a building so if it actually flies up and becomes a ship, it might be too big and looks kinda awkward, i'd just make it floating with some sort of aura or something.

    Trying out with some other things but it might have too many spikes now that'd contribute alot on the poly counts, still need to make the worm(s)

    I liked the ship. :(

    Though they'd make for shoddier defense, I prefer the spikes from the first picture.

    Create anything and make it semi-stationary so we can pretend it's a building. :p
