COMPETITION 11
If you are going to enter please state so in this thread.
When Competition X was being made 24k and I talked about what it should be, one of the ideas that sprung up was creating your own SC2 unit.
THE UNIT CAN NOT BE IN EXISTENCE ALREADY.
Any of the three races, you can attempt to draw your own Xel'Naga if you wish.
Any powers.
Any whatever.

The image can be computer generated, or made with traditional media.
A panel which will include myself and two others will meet and decide the places of First, Second, and Third.
Prizes will consist of +Rep from all competitors as usual but First place will be able to pick the next competition (although it has to be approved, First place winner may also decline to this)
DATES *IMPORTANT*

Start Date: June 17, 2008
End Date: July 1, 2008

I'm curios are there any preference's as to how the unit is displayed? do you want animation, still art? will concept art do? or is this a free for all make what you can and post it up competition?

Regardless i get my new pc here soon and will be able to photoshop again finally so I'll give this a go soon.

There is no preference to how you display the unit, any form will also do (still or animation), and concept art is pretty much where you want to be with this (although it is not necessary). This is a free for all as all competitions are here.

I hope this helps!

my submission - its a larvalisk! its a ground unit that moves slow like a larva but it can fly very fast in short distances (costs 1 mana to fly per second and has a max of 10 mana (can fly for 10 seconds)), it has the ability to burrow if researched, and it can attack ground and air but only while it's flying (stinger), and it has the ability to morph like a larva. the larvalisk is an upgrade of a regular larva.

Very early picture of the unit I am working on.

I call him the War Zealot. Basically he is an upgrade to the Zealot unit. Just like how Hydras can turn into Lurkers, Zealots will be able to evolve into War Zealots. You'll be able to get the upgrade from the Protoss Forge.

In this form he loses his shields, however he is at peek physical condition. This enables him to run faster, leap from platform to platform, and grow another pair of arms. The top ones have plasma guns which enables him to not only shoot ground units, but air units too. This allows him to either target a single unit with all four arms or just use his top hands to shoot air targets, and his bottom for melee combat. The bottom ones are just like the classical zealot with the laser blades. Unlike most of the other Protoss units, he doesn't strictly rely on advanced technology hence he wont be wearing a lot of body armor. :smile:

A long way from done...but either way...introducing the War Zealot

Actually Archons didn't even cross my mind when I came up with the War Zealot. I just like how zealots look so I figured I'd go from that and I ended up with the idea of a "Uber Zealot". Even so, the War Zealot is a little power boost and does not require two units, so he can still be useful.

I'm curios can this both attack mid/long range with pistol and attack physically at same time, or, can it attack mid/long range but can attack physical (either disabling the other) ?

Regardless nice work so far, discouraging me from submitting my response, although i might just shop it up a bit and see how things go.

War Zealot

- Created when you upgrade a Zealot.
- The Upgrade is available at the Protoss Forge.
- Abilities include a second pair of Arms, Leaping, and and overall increase in damage level.
- Once you upgrade to a War Zealot, you cannot go back, which means you can't create an Archon.
- The War Zealot's damage is somewhere between a Zealot and an Archon's.
- The War Zealot's HP is greatly increased. However at the same time he loses his Plasma Shield.
- He can attack Air Units and Ground Units simultaneously. The catch is the ground units have to be near enough to use the Laser Blades.
- Though the damage might be between an Archon's and a Zealots, in order for this to be true, all four arms have to target the same unit. Which means if he is using one pair to target an air unit, and another to target a ground unit, the damage is split in half.

Meh, I suck at drawing. Now get off my back. Here's my entry.

It's an Infested Stalker. It is a Zerg unit and is produced when a Hydralisk and Queen are close enough to a Protoss Stalker.

~Has all the capabilities of a stalker (Being able to teleport short distances in its view) in addition to being able to burrow like every other Zerg Ground Unit when researched.

~Shoots w/e the **** the hydralisks shoot out of its Flowerlike cannon in replacing the traditional plasma cannon that the normal Stalker uses.

~Uses tentacles to enroot single ground units in place. Uses 1 Mana per Second. This unit has a total of 50 mana, with an additional 25 mana if trained in the Hydralisk Den.

This is my submition.

It is a Terran SCV Defender.
http://i160.photobucket.com/albums/t192/KrAzYkArL1000/SCVBETTER-1.jpg

It is created when you upgrade a SCV.
The upgrade is found in the Engineering Bay.
To use this upgrade, a SCV must build a missile turret on itself.
This unit can now only attack air units using its rockets and Yamaka launcher (back weapon and shoulder respectively).
The unit can still mine, but cannot mine while attacking.

The upgrade cost 75 minerals for each unit.

Another upgrade for the SCV Defender is the Slowpoke Beam.
http://i160.photobucket.com/albums/t192/KrAzYkArL1000/SCVBETTERWITHSLOWPOKE-1.jpg
Once equipped with the Slowpoke beam, the unit can no longer mine.
The Slowpoke beam cost one mana, the unit having fifteen mana total.

The Slowpoke beam upgrade cost 9,001 minerals to research, but once researched, every unit that upgrades to a SCV Defender automatically becomes equipped with a Slowpoke Beam.

So, I had five minutes to spare, a laptop with Paint, and an idea I thought was good. The picture came out ****ty because I had to use a touchpad for the mouse. I may have an updated awesome version tomorrow, if it isn't too late.

Oh yeah, the Pikmin do stuff too... and the SCV Defender lurks on Final Destination. He also converts other units.
