    lol I think Harald might have something to say if a judge enters and awards themself the winning entry :p

    It might sound a bit random but we didnt want to go for one of the obvious, well known choices like Lordaeron or Tyrs Hand, Stromgard has a lot of history within the Warcaft World and you can chose between whether you want to represent the ruined or restored side of it.

    Here's abit more detail about how we will be awarding points and selecting a winner:

    - Atmosphere: What kind of atmosphere and feeling does the scene create? This is where use of fog and light effects come into play as well as the overall color scheme of the picture.
    - Creative use of Doodads: Has a variation of doodads been used and how creatively have they been employed to produce the scene? This is where thoughtful placement and original use of doodads is recognised.
    - Overall aesthetic of the scene: How well do all the facets of the composition come together to form the scene? To what extent does the terrain faithfully represent the target brief?

    By imported terrain you mean custom tilesets?

    Thats very easy you just find the custom tileset you want, the Hive has some you can chose from, then import it into your map using he speficied path and it replaces the standard WC3 tileset.

    Example: TerrainArt\Northrend\North_Ice.blp

    This replaces the Northrend Ice tilset, custom tileset here:

    No, I meant a building unit, let's say Town Hall, and give it the Locust ability, that would make it unclickable and invulnerable like a doodad while keeping the team color instead of being black because it's actually a unit.

    TLDR; Can I use units?
