Edit: Aww, they changed the Widow Mine again.

Edit: I love the new Widow Mine for HotS! [link] Definitely reminds me of my idea of how the Bane Creeper attacks.

So I always liked the idea of the Seeker Missile from the Raven, sadly we don't see it utilized often. So I thought of similar mechanic with this unit, the Bane Creeper. It would use a close range ability that's energy based, that would inject bane acid into any enemy light, ground unit. There would then be a very short moment before the enemy unit (still able to move freely) would explode damaging or killing near by units. It would cause entertaining micro forcing the enemy to scramble to get rid of the infected unit before their surrounding units suffer. It would mostly be a early to mid game unit, most likely with little hp. Of course, the biggest question is why get this unit rather than a whole bunch of banelings? For one, it would be armored so Hellians wouldn't be so annoying to deal with early game. Verse Protoss, it could help reduce heavy Sentry and Zealot armies being able to out range one force field. Mainly, I would like to see this kind of micro early game and help macro Zergs against early aggression.

Tell me what you think : )

That looks like a neat evolution of Defiler.

I'd make it morph from the Queen/Viper and require an Infestation Pit and Baneling Nest. If it'd morph from the Viper, it'd keep Abduct, and if it morphed from the Queen, it'd gain an acid spine attack.
Also, what if that's its melee attack and its ranged is for the tail's tip to open up and shoot acid?

This guy would replace the Baneling right?

That's a good question!

Could imagine it walks in a very creepy skittering movement, for a idle or a "on-guard" animation it could use its back legs to strafe around the target or scuttle like how a scorpion does. Great concept, I was rather disappointed in the zerg campaign unit selection. I wish it was alot more diverse, also explored the concept of Infested terran units even further. I could imagine them acting similarly to Warcraft 3 Ancients but when they are "rooted" in their building form they would look like Infested Terran structures but when they "uproot" and walk they would look more monstrous like your wonderful Infested Planetary Fortress concept ;)
