OG Queen by Mr--Jack OG Queen by Mr--Jack
So, during initial development on HotS we did a push to revisit the couple of BW zerg units that didn't make it into Liberty already, and I worked up a couple of concepts for the missing beasties.
The Queen was an interesting one, since we did technically have a 'Queen' unit in SC2, but one that bore very little resemblance to the original version - so this time around I stuck pretty faithfully to that iteration.
The final version (modeled by the much-esteemed *PhillGonzo) had the front webbing removed, which, as he puts it, "effectively made her look a bit more sinister and less like an umbrella."

Man, I remember these. They always looked like they had big, rouge lips too. Nostalgia aside, the new ones are a great improvement.

Impressive concept, but the original Queen is a unit I will certainly NEVER miss, waste of minerals that she was. Still, it would have been nice to see Phill's models animated.

I think she's available in the editor in HotS, looks pretty cool flying around.
I definitely miss it too; maybe not from hardcore multiplayer but broodlings were definitely pretty sweet and there was nothing quite like stealing someone's command center :D :D

If this queen still be a flying unit, it's surely looks like a parachute ;P

I thought I were going to see this old school queen in HotS, even waited through all the game for abathur upgrading the queen to this one :(

yet I don't lose faith to see it in Legacy of the void !

I was hoping that the infestor would get a chance to evolve into either a defiler or a viper, and mutalisk would get the guardian back
