    A Summoning Shrine is neccesary, Fel Orcs are always related to demons, also a building resembling the Temple and Tower of the Orcs in WC1 would be nice, as those buildings match the caster units used by the Fel Orcs better.

    I agree. :p

    Interesting. This raises a good issue as well... Personally, I've always seen the (Jungle) Trolls as a lot less structured & consistent as the other races; their buildings often seem more lopsided or haphazard (some might even say "funky"... :p) in their architecture. The Voodoo Lounge is a great example; not symmetrical at all.

    With that in mind, I think the Human Barracks might be a really interesting base... With a few tweaks. Perhaps it would only have 3 of the 4 corner-towers (and one taller than the other), leaving an open space of sorts (or a low wall... not sure). Moving two of the tower logs closer together than the other would help enhance this asymmetry. See the red lines on the left side.

    Finally, the center. See the blue lines on the right side. This depends heavily on what kind of building this would be (spellcaster, creature, aerial, grounder, basic, advanced, etc)... But I'd love to see a departure from the 'logs-logs-logs' that's all too common (at least, especially with 3 logs forming the exterior. :p). Perhaps some canvas tarps like the Neutral Huts or Beta Lumbermill... OR (ooh, this is good)... This would make a great looking "Swamp Lodge", with the central area made into a sort of "Raptor's Den" (ala Jurassic Park). I imagine a shrunken, re-wrapped Mercenary Camp would look great for this, placed in the center of these columns & poised to unleash lizardy-doom. :p Perhaps even (as the image suggests in blue) turning it <90 degrees so it's less symmetrical.

    Anyway, those are all just thoughts. But I seriously think the Trolls could do with some serious asymmetry to really set them off racially, architecturally, and aesthetically (and, hopefully, it wouldn't be all too hard to make those (hopefully) minor mesh edits). Thoughts?

    I'm afraid I'm not really you're go-to-guy with stuff like that. The Troll Barracks I've made is pretty much symmetrical.

    No problem. I figured it might be a lot to consider. : ) Maybe I'll take a whack at it. Keep me informed.

    Barrens? Interesting. I can't tell if there's team color on that?

    That's hard to say, even if have will be hard to see, Ujimasa are putting them on brown team.

    Anyway, that's good but the Tend could be improved, it's so simple, and kinda of weird to say.

    There isn't much change because I simply gave it a Base, Team Color, Birth animation, and Stand Work animation kinda like what I did the other Neutral buildings before.

    Great job ujimasa.. very impressive
    congratulations
    I have a doubt about the fel orcs.
    do you intend to do to Forge Beta. or the War mill fel orc???

    and for suggestions. I'd say:

    Felblood Elves - Units - Builds
    Mag'har - Builds
    Dalaran Kirin'tor - Units - Builds (Idea of a friend)

    Congratulations again!!

    A Dalaran / Kirin Tor set would be interesting.

    The Harpy Nest is up.

    EDIT: If people want Mage-type buildings, SinisterX and Elenai already got that covered.

    Those are Blood and High Elves buildings, not Dalaran. But there's some Dalaran's buildings somewhere... And the Nest looks nice :)

    This building are awesome, but they so much elf-ish style, maybe you could make more buildings with base of your Arcane Castle. And that would be perfect for my campaign as well. ;)

    But anyway, good work and good luck!
