    I find it kind of humorous that it is Orc vs Fel Orc.

    What you've done so far is brilliant Azurot. It lacks a superb background to go with it however, my focus being mainly at the empty horizon.

    Would you mind elaborating a tad more on exactly what "Backing definition" is?
    Personally I find the empty horizon fitting for an ocean. :p
    It makes for a very contrasting feeling between the dense jungle dwelling horde and the open barren ocean dwelling naga.

    Wow. Those Hooded things remind me of what I can picture a Myrddraal from the Wheel of Time novels looking like almost to a 'T' except that they don't have a matching evil horse.

    What are those, Ring Wraiths?

    Man, if someone made some models, I'd totally do a WoT RPG.

    We could use Gargoyles for Drahkgar. Gray Men could be Villagers, and so basically, we'd only need Trollocs, Myrddraal, and maybe Ogier, I haven't searched for them.

    I could make it so the classes are Aes Sedai, Asha'man, Aiel, Borderlander, or Seanchan.

    Fame and Glory await in the Blight for those who are strong enough to survive it!

    You have too much randomness in your picture. It's basics are good, but for example dungeon rocks and barren trees in a city/village terrain don't fit at all.

    1. Remove the barrens rocks.
    2. Remove those trees in the right in the background and add mountains instead, 2-3 layers also behind the city.
    3. It is still very flat.
    4. Make those tiles less random, remove the desert like tiles.
    5. You should make the houses smaller in the city and add more of them.
    6. An army would be cool marching at the city.
    7. Add another sky PLEASE. Fogged for example, and make it night IMO and add clouds.
    8. Why are the city's walls blue? =/ Make them more greyish.
    9. Also remove the barrens trees.

    This should improve your terrain a lot if you do everything I've listed here. Good luck.

    Yes yes this is going to be a big noob question but does anyone know how to make a wall like a half circle? so that you can make a round wall

    What exactly do you mean? If the model is square, you will have to arrange them facing various directions, so that it looks circular.

    Well, I'm sure there is a circle wall in the UTM, but its more of a tower then a wall. You can place that or make the walls go like this:
    ..\
    ...\
    ....\
    ..../
    .../
    ../

    Goolygot, keep in mind that the terrain needs to be taken in the middle of a battle or after one. Your current WiP is taking place before the battle, so it doesn't count.
    Also despite the terrain itself being flat and monotone the camera and the arrangement of the units on the wall is amazing. You just need to make your environment more interesting.

    I don't see what's wrong with before battle, Morbid, I say you allow it, it clearly has to do with the battlefield theme, it should count.

    Yes, I allowed this since I counted it as during the battle, see my explanation before.
    However I will update the first post to clarify this.


    RULES UPDATED!!! Please check the first post!

    Note: This are only details to clarify a few things and do not influence the shown WiP in any negativ way! So everything that has been posted yet is totally fine and goes along with the rules!
