Ok so I don't really need much, but let me explain what I'm doing and you can decide if you want to help me out.

I'm turning chickens into a playable "drop-in" (You'll still have to do a little work ofc) faction. There are multiple reason for this, chief one being that chickens in general is in disrepair and kinda sucks anyway (and I'm tired of dealing with it). Using DAI, we (we being evo people and mainly Damgam) can make chickens far more interesting and dynamic and then make that easy for other games to just drop-in.

I'm also giving chickens a visual kick in the ass as well (that is to say, it's way better than before, but still kinda ~).
Examples:

The problem is the chicken roost. It's literally a ring, with a flesh texture.

Basically, I would like a new model for it. It doesn't need to be extravagant. As far as sizing, figure on somewhere between 6x6 and 8x8 footprint size is what will be used in game. It doesn't need any moving parts.

As an idea of something that might fit the bill to some degree... Zerg nydus worm from SC2 https://i.imgur.com/IYgQvcH.png
Please understand, not trying to be a CB here. It doesn't need to be particularly detailed. It's just that the current model is seriously Wack And it would be nice to push this thing out looking pretty decent. For anyone who feels like an overachiever, please don't make it look TOO good, otherwise the chickens themselves will look awful in comparison lol

I understand that something like this ends up taking time, and if no one wants to bother with it, I'm not going to be particularly butthurt about it. But my thinking was that maybe someone might already have a spare model+tex that would already work. I was actually thinking about using one of Lathan Stanley's tyranid models for it. They are beautifully textured. A little model love and it would probably work pretty nicely.

False alarm. I decided to explore the idea of using Lathans tyranid models for the purpose and the end result was very yes, so, gondor no longer calls for aid.

However, since the cat is out of the bag already, I'm working on a new drop in biomechanical faction using chickens models that should turn out to be pretty cool (we'll see).
