    I really like the 4 segement crab motif. I think it makes it look allot more like a Kraken. But feel free to make your own modified model and we can see which people perfer

    Thats not a bad idea. Id like to push towards the fear and awe look you get from say the Chimeran ships in Resistance 2. Just this gigantic alien leviathan hanging in the sky right above you. Tentacles that drap down might help that but im alittle worried if that would overlap with overlord. What do you think?









    I want to propose three different firing mechanics and see which people (if any) people would perfer

    A) Through the mouth Gaurdian style
    B) Tentacle grabs a Broodling from a giant mouth underneath the monster and then throws it like the Sentinals in the Matrix
    C) Large mass appears at the base of a Tentacle, this bulge is pumped/squeezed through the tentacle untill it reaches the claw opening, Broodling is ejected from this opening (like the broodlord is laying the broodling) or fired forcefully from the Tentacle.

    Option 2 would be great! Instead of implying the frail nature of an Overlord (tentacles dangling), the Brood Lord could actually use them for something ^_^

    Besides, I do think that 2 Broodlings flying alongside the Brood Lord, though swarm-like, looks rather... cute for Zerg.

    The broodlins looks perfect. The idea of a not completely developed Corruptor is great, and it really looks sweet. But the brood Lord needs (again) a complete new render. Great effort ffrom you. lets hope Blizzard hear your calling again and get started

    The ratio body/tentacles is prettier like this I think;

    Well, I'd take the sea serpent model, and replace the lower half of it with a few massive barbed tentacles or something.

    Do you mean the back two segments or the underbelly?

    Then it wouldnt look like a flying sea serpent. It wouldnt be able to slither up and down through the air. You cant have a snake thats wider then it is long

    Am I the only one that wants the tentacles to be facing forward?

    The idea being that it flings them at its target and it bursts in to a tentacle beast (though I do like XSoldier's rendition of the ground unit).

    Heh, I wish I were also a talented artist so I could so a concept of what I'm imagining.
