I think its a great idea that the evil factions are getting versatile statue structures. Mordor have Sauron, Goblins have the awesome drum and isengard will have the white hand.

How about some ideas for good faction statues? I know they are fine as is, but it would be nice to see some difference bar the actual model itself.

Maybe in how it functions... Moria Drum should have a power (like the fortress) called 'Drums in the Deep' or something which boosts allies nearby and gives fear to enemy units. It could have an animation of a cave troll banging on it, or even a Goblin drummer... :lol:
Sauron statue should give MEGA fear to nearby units as well as morale boost to allies...

Problem with statues is that they just sit there and provide morale boosts and that's why I want a bit more versatility... Maybe the elven statues could release a flood (too cliche IMO and already ebing used with Arwen AND Elven Spellbook) or 'hide' nearby units + structures? How about that? You could hide your entire base by dotting these 'magical' statues around your camp. The structures would probably work like a normal stealthed unit, but when the enemy comes within touching distance, the structures become visible? I don't know how it would work really, but what do you think?
Ignited into the world in a flash of lightning, it gleams faintly in the heart of its mother, wood. It begins as an ember, a mere wisp of heat and colour. Its chance of survival at this critical moment is minute, yet it fights on, against the unforgiving cold, against the depths of night and against its mortal enemy: rain.

Some of these things are already being worked on... We're starting with the Moria Drum, and then we'll see... My thought is that we'd have a troll bang the drum, as a power, and that would give Call the Horde to Moria, and you'd be able to spawn loads of Gobbos in no time! :crazed:

If this works out fine, we'll probably do something to most other statures as well...

I personally think the statues for Harad and Rhun should be of Lorgan (Rhun) and Suladan (Harad).

Or they could be of a Dragon and a Mumakil.

Or they could each be of a different species of Serpent

Or they could be of a Drake and a Scorpion

I don't think all statues would necessarily have to be idolizing someone :p

Harad has a rather fitting "statue" made from Mumak tusks and a flag blowing in the wind. It looks good with animations and all, and I won't change it =p Atm, Rhûn has the Sauron statue, but I envision a sort of dragon vorship thinghy later on...
