Just an Overlord by Mr--Jack Just an Overlord by Mr--Jack
A bit late putting this one up, the story's been out for a while now, BUT!

Check it out here
Just an Overlord
It was supposed to be an easy assignment: take a squad of recruits out to the ruins of Tarsonis, make camp at the abandoned Ghost Academy, and play war games for a few weeks to prep the recruits for combat. With Kerrigan out of the picture, the zerg are just mindless animals, hardly a threat to Dominion marines... right? As Meatbag Squadron is about to find out, even the supposedly most harmless zerg can be a terrifying enemy.

A wallpaper-sized version is up on the SC2 site, as well.

I really looooove the painting, just want to ask... shouldn't the marine be in red?

I have nothing to say if it's about the harmony of colors.. but..

Please don't beat me, I didn't mean it...!!


LOL who cares, we all love this.

....Just a Marine....

I think it's pretty clear to anybody that those silent giants can be just as dangerous as any other member of the Swarm, in other words a efficient killing machine.....

By the way has anybody ever wondered what the Zerg would be capable of they could their Psionic potential in a more active manner than just to communicate with it?

They still dont. But they dont have to. They can control other Zerg. 
Their called OVERLORDS for a reason. Their basically field lieutenants, but not on the scale of Broodmothers, Queens, and Cerebrates.
