    AyeKantSpel & Debode, LOL my bad! XD Fixed my post. :p
    Skycraft, The rain is too heavy in my opinion, and in contrast to Adiktuz I like this camera angle. However it has to be tilted or panned a little to the left since the area of the second bandit isn't too interesting, but there needs to be some piece of him to be seen behind the first bandit so that he wouldn't be alone in that fight. :O As for the slope where the bandits are coming from it's boring as well, I'd suggest more texture variation and even a bit of environmental doodads.
    Also there's a GIGANTIC rock near the houses and people like me don't have any idea what the hell is it doing there. In addition to that I suggest to make the farms larger so that it would be more realistic (and if not, more comfortable to the eye), something I can say for the paths themselves and the props in the main fight... It all looks too small and misproportunized for some reason.
    And are those footmen burning?! If the weeds are supposed to be burning (for whatever reason) make the fire smaller and more exclusive to them.
    This terrain has a lot of potential in my opinion, but there is work to be done before that potential will be fully revealed.

    oh yeah, the correct thing to do with the camera was what iodik said (I was unsure of the term so I said change the camera angle)...

    anyway,

    It shall be complete when I find time in my 'oh so busy life' to do so! Don't you worry!
    Thanks for feedback.. o.o

    Edit: Adiktuz, those are some crazy elementals.
    However - the terrain.. looks.. empty and scratched.
    I mean to say that those crop-looking things going down the hill, just look ugly imo.
    But I don't know, I'll see how you play this out. ;]

    Just so you know that's quite possible if you have burning material that's strong enough, but in this case I guess you're right.

    But it's Warcraft land, logic is not required ;D

    Edit: You may want to hide your beauty.
    Nice and neat for a first WIP, I hope to see more awesome potential bloom out of it.

    Looks like the planes of oblivion, with the towers and bridges connecting them. Cant wait to see the battle.

    @adikutz nice, I like the spell effects.
    @Skycraft I think they are gods, there's only 3 of them and like 200 bandits!
    @tleno very nice, for a first wip it has some awesome potential.

    may consider participate, but if i choose to create something looking like after a battle, will i then need units, or is this all about the terrain?

    If you had bothered to look at other entries you'd have seen that each one of them includes at least one unit... The minimum requirement by the rules is two, one against another.
    @tleno: Awesome buildings, but if you'll look in the middle you'll see that the sky cuts in quite roughly. Doodads and units that you could insert will probably make the transition much smoother.

    Idodik, next time read what he asked. Yes you dont need units if your doing after battle scene. You just need terrain to make it look like after a battle.

    what Infinate Answers said.

    To express a battlefield of two parties, which is required you do not need units, but only to show a battlefield. How you do that is up to you!
