Default HotS Teasing...





No idea what the first one could be, but the second one, if you really have no idea: just compare it to this..

edit: okay, appearantly, the lurker preview was a fake using the very same artwork I've shown.... ><

Saw Mr. Jack's at first sight, lol. Followed him for a time until he got hired by Blizzard (they're using all his fanart lately, he's even in Broken Wide short story with his banelings).

The terran one looks like some medic or engineer. His left hand is definitely wielding a shield.

Btw, where did you get them from? o_o

Edit: Ok, Facebook (though only the terran one is up there)

I've seen them first on the sclegacy forum, but they were originally posted on blizzard's facebook homepage...

edit: Hmpf, but appearantly, I got tricked on the Lurker one... Appearantly, it is really just a fanmade silhouette using the same piece of artwork I've shown.... I took this more as an indication that they followed closely his artwork for it. >,<

Yeah, just noticed (but wasn't fast at editing ).

I wonder how they took the zerg unit, since it's nowhere official to be seen :S.

Also, the fact it seems to be based upon a public artwork makes me suspect it could be a fake .

PS: I start to think the terran unit will be an AOE infantry unit, like a grenadier.

Edit: Ah, ok, so the zerg one was a fake after all .

I think the thing on top looks like a flame thrower. It has the two nozzles.

Medic shield? Grenadier?

Maybe they combined all terran infantry?

I'm not so sure that terran unit is necessarily infantry in a power suit. It could very well be a humanoid robot (or it could be in that nebulous size class where the difference between robot and powered armor is blurred). The legs look way too short to be human.

Eh, I think the legs are fine (also keeping in mind the extra shortness for the gameplay view), since I think he has a rather giant backpack, giving him the bigger silhouette....

Some people believe though, that this is a transformer kind of unit.

Transformed from Hellion, to be precise.

Nonsense :S.

Oh god that sounds fucking awesome. I hated how the hellion replaced the firebat and this would be an awesome development.

Not to mention the toy they'd make out of it would be pretty kickass.

They did, but most of his art used by Blizzard was formerly fanart.

I'm a motorcycle.

Now I'm a cyborg.

I'm sure there's a meme for this out there.

Hellions have four wheels.

I played the SC2 single player story mode over at a friend's house. I have to say, that game was so bad. The first one was incredible, but this new one is just...it's like having a really amazing T-bone for dinner one night, then having Salisbury steak for dinner the next.

Blizzard Entertainment lost it's way, I fear, some time between WCIII and WoW.

Some might argue that they were straying even earlier than that.
