dwarfmaster,
That would be cool. My entry is my first attempt at terrain. It's so big and has taken many hours so far. It would be nice to work on a smaller piece.(O_o)

I have an idea that might work. It's kind of a theme (I suppose).

Modularity: You make three pieces that can function as independent pieces of terrain, but also work together as a large piece of terrain just as well. It would take a little more planning than most. But I like the idea of adaptability for terrain.

I am thinking something like modular barrier walls sort of fortifications, but it can be more of an open interpretation than that. This aspect makes it even more interesting, everyone can apply their own twist to it.

Maybe video game themed? Or a crashed vehicle of any type.

Some themes I'd love to see:
- Middle-age/dark-age stuff
- A horror in the dark
- 'Is this the real life, or is this just fantasy'
- Magic
- Sonic boom (destructed/loud/ruined/exploded/about to explode stuff and such)
- A light in the dark
- The end of the tunnel

will probably come up with more later.

Broad term, but, think walls covered in recruitment posters, waagh totem, commissar/preacher podium/pulpit, chaos shrine w/ human sacrifice chained to it, ethereal speaking platform...Anything that'd be seen as a motivator.

Just what popped into my mind at a whim.
This reminds me of the first mission in SC2, I'm sure you could think of a great space marine piece for this :D

what about after battle? How an area looks after the very fight or battle.

Another thing that might be interesting is haunted houses.

Hopefully they haven't been done yet but I'd like to see a swamp theme or a winter/arctic/snow theme.

Maybe a bit of combination of the above suggestions: Building reclaimed by nature (or equivalent).

"Tumor is just plain retarted. Tuomir is cooler than that" -jackmrnorris94
"Tuomir has proven his brilliance in this scenario" -The Airman
