    Really unique and good looking model, but for some reason I do not find it useful. No offense.

    Awesome model, definitely deserves a 5 from me!

    It may also be useful for my map.

    I almost thought he having two rocket pack on his back.
    But finally disappointed because animation transfer just simply cant make wonder animation like flying with rocket pack.
    If there rocket packs just for decoration 'll be a waste.

    I know they aren't rockets but man, it would be useful if
    that two buildings has animations. But the model itself is indeed useful
    as it is.

    I really have to say there are several very nice models coming out of this contest but this one is my favorite right now. Because it is both simple and impressive and it reminds me of the theme very much.

    now, i found this model extremely useful, since i have this long time idea of making a chess race for map i'm working on. then, whole chess-theme competition came out of nowhere, and now there is plenty of good models all of the sudden. this one i particularly like, since it's low in size and uses internal textures

    But propblem is he not using for anything except decorection.
    If you should make thing like not any golem can wear there towers, only The Rook can using them to smash enemy or fire a magic blast from them, it'll be better.

    well to be honest, that War3/TFT magic vault humans use as shop doesn't do much either..

    but you're right.. maybe they could be rotated forward and spun quickly for some Gatling-gun-like magical barrage spell.. (Both in alt and normal modes)

    EDIT: but that's to the maker, methinks :>
