By the way, this is the latest version of Rivalry's four-mission teaser. If you're a judge for the contest, find the contest version in the contest thread (link). If you're NOT a judge, or you are and want to check up on how the campaign's going, this links is for you!
As many of you are aware of at this point, StarCraft: Rivalry intends to offer a complete "expansion pack" experience via a new campaign for each race. Like StarCraft: Brood War, my campaigns will offer each race new units and heroes, and the storytelling within the maps will introduce and integrate these new units and heroes much like Blizzard Entertainment's expansion pack did. Here's a list of the new units and heroes, along with their respective descriptions. Note that, unless the unit or hero is marked with an asterisk (*), it may be removed, replaced, or otherwise modified. As always, I might add more, providing the limitations of StarCraft's engine doesn't beat me up too badly in the process.
That's about it. Let me know what you guys think.
SO. Been a while since I updated the thread. Three more songs are up there, as well as the Protoss teaser from before. As far as units go, everything appears to be working fine, but certain units will definitely have to be nerfed and buffed for balance reasons. Expect more on this after the campaign runs its course of development.
The units I've decided on are as following.
-Casan Screamer (morphs from Hydralisk ; available in current version)
-Mutilator (morphs from Larva ; not available in current version)
-Asphyxiator (morphs from Guardian ; not available)
-Demolisher (trains from Barracks ; available)
-Duster (trains from Factory ; available)
-Mastadon (trains from Factory ; available)
-Scimitar (trains from Starport ; available)
-Immortal (trains from Robotics Facility ; available)
-Clarion (trains from Robotics Facility ; available)
-Reptilian (trains from Stargate ; available)
I know, I know, Terrans have one new unit more than every other race. Don't worry; I'm going to do my best to balance this out properly, and if a unit has to be cut from melee play so the balance can be stabilised, it'll happen.
Screenshots (or video) of the first Protoss mission (as in, the introductory mission) should be on their way fairly soon.

Balance is gonna be really hard.
Well, the good news is that screenshots are required to stop people from posting threads for maps that they haven't actually started yet (as in, maps that aren't in production). Posting videos of the map actually fulfills this requirement better, so if you don't want to include screenshots then you could probably remove that section entirely
I would contact Moose or Ahli to make sure then, but it makes sense to me that videos of the map prove the map is in production better than a screenshot would. The stickied thread on the subject seems to make the intention of the rule pretty clear. If anyone tells you you can't do it that way, make sure to ask them for a reason, because as far as I can tell there shouldn't be one.

Only if it's Auto-Erotic Asphyxiation
I think your fixation towards making unit names by adding suffixes to verbs is ruining the zerg's names.
Though I understand that it is to stay true to the naming formula for SC.. It's probably a better idea to think of something else....
like.. for example.. Hellkite, Bloodkite, Hellscourge, Bloodcrazed Guardian or [insert adjective] Guardian.
Unit names like Demolisher and Scimitar also ruins terran aesthetics..
but w/e... the worst offender is Asphyxiator.. lol
Three new tracks are in the OP. They replace the first three Zerg tracks. Much better, IMO.
Zerg soundtrack's been fully replaced. Obviously I'll have more tracks for them, but at the present that's all that is available.
