Xhane Contest - Map Editor Competition

One of the five individual competitions promoted by Xhane, the new Community Developer for Might&Magic. Like in lucky_dwarf's challenge the focus of this contest is to create an interesting landscape in the map editor, theme is up to you. It can be an ancient kingdom, a lush wilderness, something more complex like sylvan units laying in ambush for another faction.. The original topic might give some ideas and this might help with advanced eye candy.

The editor challenge will be judged on a number of variables including originality and humour but not limited to them. Cohesion, imagination, eye candy, detail, camera angle, everything counts. They won't of course be graded individually but as a whole. I should mention that I won't give much of a bonus to those who know how to remove unit symbols or add animations, the point of the contest is that everyone should have a chance to win as long as he puts enough effort in it.

Yep. My apologies for not being perfectly clear from the start, guess I was used to the idea since I'd participated earlier.

Is there a set time limit yet? Because I need atleast one month to work on mine, perhaps one and a half if I want to make it really good.

I suppose it would be fair enough to place the deadline on end of July. That should give everyone plenty of time.

Do I get a lower score if my image is without animations, like creature movements and such? I tried adding a few but as soon as I did the first one the editor crashed, I followed Fiur's guide completely but still failed.

Can I try my luck with this one? It is made in the editor after all

Or should I make something similar to the lucky_dwarf's "Eye-candy" thread?

Hexes? Nice But not quite what I'm looking for, it has to be shot within the editor.

Well it is, the models used for the hex grid are placeholder models, which were supposed to be used as Inferno hero's lava path. So they were retextured as hexes. I may even upload the map.
But if that doesn't count, I'll try to come up with something else later.

My attempt at recreating the landscape outside (I thought it looked pretty much like it, and considering my basic knowledge with the editor, I thought this pretty good, might update later on):

I'd say light up the field a bit.
It's so dark.
Looks like it's dead.
