    Creep Warlords
    Upgrade a creep unit to a top tier instance of itself.
    Further details on what models you can work on and what you can do with them in the rules.


    [​IMG]
    • No submission may violate any of the site rules.
    • If a submission does not follow the skin submission rules, the creator will be disqualified.
    • Your submission must be posted before the deadline. The post containing your final submission must also contain the following:
      • An in-game screenshot showing your submission in action.
      • The file(s) in the appropriate format.
    • You must show at least one unfinished preview of your submission, before the deadline, as proof that it is yours.
    • Your submission may not be started/made before the official launch of the contest.
    • Judges may not participate.
    • Teamwork is not allowed.
    • Textures must be no larger than 512 pixels in any dimension when submitted as final entry.
      You may work in 1024 (or higher), but the texture must be resized down to 512 pixels on equal dimension textures when submitted.
    • Your chosen unit must be an existing WCIII model and you may not edit the model in any way.
    • You can not change the race of the chosen unit. You are supposed to upgrade the unit of your choice to a top tier unit.
    • You can not make a skin for a unit whose model is not found under Unit/Creeps in the MPQ and turn it into a creep race.
    • You can not make a skin for a unit that is not found in the Neutral Hostile category of the Object Editor's list of units.

      If you are not sure whether your entry can be considered a top tier unit, or otherwise complies with the rules, don't hesitate to ask.
      Better to ask a so-called stupid question than to be disqualified.

    Think I'm gonna find time to join this one.

    Personally I'd define a creep as a unit that appears under the Neutral Hostile unit Pallet in the world Editor though, considering several Campaign units with obvious ties to the playable factions are found under the creeps section of the .mpq (night elf warden (non-hero), night elf sentry, high elf archer, Sylvanas, high elf dragonhawk, etc.)

    The issue is that Neutral Hostile also includes demons, even though they have a different tab in the MPQs.

    I thought that would be easiest as well initially, but Dio informed me otherwise. Both have their flaws and I'd rather just go with this than list every unit people are allowed to texture.

    Demons only play the roll of creeps in WC3 though. And their species can't be changed by the prompt, which only leaves the demoness, fel guard, fel hound, doom guard, and infernal as demonic units that are creeps. Satyr and Faceless are basically demons to, and their still classified as standard creeps. If demons is to much of a problem (considering there were 2 demon-themed contests already) than I'd say omit them from the pool of available models, but including campaign units strikes me as more of an issue. Nothing about the High Elf Archer really says creep, and yet she is under Units\Creeps\HighElfArcher\HighElfArcher.

    Models under the "Creeps" tab in the MPQ that do get used as "Neutral Hostile", in-game. It's slightly ridiculous, but I think it cuts down to exactly what's needed.

    I'm definitely joining this. I'll be doing a centaur, I think.

    EDIT: Dang it, there's no reason doing a centaur, when Redshift already made an awesome one, that could easily serve as a warlord. So... I guess I'ma do Furbolg instead.

    Solidified the rules and adjusted them to rule out campaign units.

    .. and please, guys, don't try to find loopholes, I'm sure you all understand what this is about because it really couldn't be simpler.

    The head and shoulders are a little funky, but overall the wrap is pretty straight-forward and easy to re-skin.
