From those high-quality scans that were available, I cut out and created "renders" of the polished models for the Corruptor, Mutalisk and Ultralisk.

Here they are:

Looks pretty good to me, but it remains to be seen how they'll fare when viewed from behind, especially the Ultra, that looks like it has a really big rear.

Mutalisk looks great.

Ultralisk looks great, but the blades are too shiny/slimy.

The Corruptor, the spines are also too shiny, it makes it look like a plastic squeezy toy. Also, it is probably just the angle but it looks too 2D to me.

They're all awesome! Though some have slim or shiny parts on them. Other than that. They are great.

The cutouts look pretty good for using a brush to clean up the edges. But I recommend using the pen tool (if you have pshop) & zooming in so that you can clearly see each individual pixel - it produces much cleaner results.

All around awesome, in my opinion!

We must obtain those photos at all costs! Men, let us coordinate our efforts and coerce sc2pod into revealing these photos which were otherwise available. Or at the very least ask nicely...

I say we storm their headquarters and hold them all as hostages along with their families!

What? They don't have a headquarters? I guess we'll have to settle for a very firm eMail :(

I'm probably going to be in the minority here but I really liked the old, craggier Corruptor. Here's a side-by-side comparison:

There seems to be less drastic changes to the Zerg than what we saw with the Hydralisk and other units previously. I'm imagining they're just eliminating the wooden-looking armor in favor of some slimey gooey surfaces and calling it good.

Beta's acomin'. I guess they can spend time to re-invent the units down the road.

As for the Corruptor's simplified texture, it looks like they're trying to make it easier to catch key details from far away. As nice as the hi-detail bumpy skin looks up-close, it won't show up very well from far away, you know. :)

Not a fan of the mutalisk mouth tusk things.

I may actually like the old look to the corruptor. It looks more menacing and 'craggier' as peasant mentioned

I’d like to see another screenshot of the new Corruptor before I make my judgement- it’s not at the best angle to see it all properly.

What were those 4 new screenshots? Did anyone save them? If so, upload them at imageshack and link to them here, please! =D

It would really be appreciated.

They're up on the appropriate unit pages now :)

I still don't like the fleshy/wooden look on the ultralisk tusks, they don't look menacing enough. They look like sharp pieces of wood, like broken furniture or something.
