    I'm weak with the animations so please bear with me, however I do think this is an improvement compared to my previous WiP. Can anyone help me with setting animation?

    no man,Khaled,he isn't insulting you,he isn't saying that the terrain is suckish or whatever
    he is just saying,you made it in 5 mins,so it doesn't really counts as a wip,you should spent about 1hr+ on it and post it here then it will be counted as a wip,because that wip is too early too be called a wip,i can do that in 2 mins time,no kidding

    off-topic : why do you guys call something a WiP ?

    darkzxx do you know what WIP even means?
    You can post an empty picture with absolute no terrain progress done and call it WIP.
    WIP-work in progress.

    I'm unsure about the rocks because when I remove them I get trouble with the sky -.-
    I have no clue how to make it look good.

    Any comment on mine? anyway, I really like all of the other entries. They all look good. I would comment myself, but I have a lot of studding to do. Good luck everyone!

    Edit:
    Got some time to write a review for some of the terrains.
    Chilla killa-
    I don't really know what to say. It looks really good, but something bothers me a little bit about the terrain. I really can't put my finger on it. It might be the background. It looks like a rock cliff, but I am not very sure.
    It looks really good, I like the idea.
    Good Luck!

    Idodik-
    It looks really good. I like it, but I think that the night elfs needs some more melee units to fight the orcs. Don't you think? Well, that is just my opinion.
    Anyway, it looks really good , I like the idea, and the terrain looks good as well.

    Edit 2:

    Wip 3!!! Comments, and criticism are welcome!

    I still need some ideas.

    WIP - Work in progress.
    E.g, "I'm working on it."
    E.g, "It's unfinished yet."
    E.g, "A lot of work still has to be done."
    I hope that clarifies stuff, Darkz.

    Heavenblood, I love your terrain :D It looks so fitting to have Treants in it! Perhaps you could do Treants against Creeps - that would be awesome :)
    Also thanks for the criticism, I can't find Night Elf melee units but I'll do my best to search again.

    Error_Trigger - you've got some nice unit anims there but I'm afraid the terrain isn't interesting enough: a battlefield must be more interesting than a flat field of grass!
    Also it looks like you just spammed away with your units and didn't have much of an idea what your were doing yourself.. Sorry if it's harsh but I'd like to see the contrast between the two parties better.
    Again, great anims, but I'm afraid the rest needs to be improved.

    The_Olorin, holy shit your terrain is awesome :O But I can't see the impact of the battle on the environment! Also your people seem to be HUGE compared to the terrain, I'd shrink them a bit, and the musclary units don't make clear who do they belong to.
    Again, great terrain, awesome background.

    since i am asking fladdermasken why the aphla tile won't work,i will work on my terain while waiting

    guys i know what WIP means,but you have common sense right?
    if you post a terrain made in 3 min,whats the point in posting it ?
    it really is pointless,you guys know it,if it isn't,everybody would post a
    1.raised cliff image
    2.added one rock image
    3.added some trees image
    whats the point ? if you guys do this,it would really be considered as spam AND if you do this,the pages can really go up to 50+

    I consider it a WiP since it shows the direction in which his terrain is going and shows off a start, of course if the next WiP or entry does look totally different, this WiP would not be a proove he made it.
    But posting it as a screen to get feedback is totally fine.

    End of the "WiP-discussion".

    Yes,i havent made the impact on the environment yet. Atm just placed units. And they seems too huge, but when you campare then to the door size, you see that they are pretty normal size(exept nazguls, they supose to be bigger). And ye the muscular unit seems too neutral, gona change him.

    Thanks for feedback and waiting for more.

    The_Olorin, those units are a mess, and I can't really figure out who's what and what are they doing. You should remove those glows, they are unrealistic for art terrain.

    Very monotone and boring at the moment, add more tile variation and add shrubs and other natural environment.
