    The Modeling contest #13 was a huge success with 8 submissions.
    So, while we're waiting for judge results for Modeling contest #13 we should discuss about the theme for the next Modeling contest.

    Few themes i find interesting:
    - Doodad pack
    - Music unit
    - Critters

    Post yours!!!

    the Musicians idea sounds nice.

    Everyone should make a musician playing any instrument, :D.

    I say critters. Its both easy and fun. And I have an idea already, too. Oh, and a ranged unit contest could be great as well.

    Ranged unit is too broad a theme in my opinion.

    I saw a really cool Badger creep from OH, so I think, given the current (*cough* exams) situation, Critter's is a great, low-intensity idea. Seriously, they're really simple.

    Then again, if anyone's up for it, a more interesting modelling contest would be cool to see. I disagree that "Ranged Unit" is too broad; you can really do a lot with that one. Or rather, it's just broad enough. :p (notice, we did the same thing with "mounted unit", one of the better Modelling Contests)

    Critters would be awesome if somebody gets to work on an elephant.

    I've been vouching for musician the past 2 times, so I'm still for that.
