yeah transformers would be a cool thing theres a lot of transformers to pick form.
I would create a race thats even more robotic than cybrans. They would be ex-cybran commanders and civilians who became more machine than man. After the infinite war they saw that Brackman was becoming weak and seperated from the cybran cause. They created their own race and military in their image. After dismissing brachman as a mere scientist that is withering and becoming obsolete they became the Neo-cybran imperialists or NCI. Their leader former cybran nation commander dostya aims to eliminate all regular humans beleiving they should be the future of the human race. Their military would revolve around raw firepower rather than the adaptiveness of the cybran nationalists.
how about a race of super intelligent ginuapigs that have tineeny weeny little buildings a huge tanks that run over enemy tanks it would be awsome "commander squeek please report to your badass butt kiking oversized robot immediatly oh and theres a carrot in it for you" MUHAHAHAH

It doesn't matter now, because Halo Wars is coming out and I have an Xbox 360 to play it! Yay! :Party1:
i would make a bug-like allien race, and the thing to make it reeaaly unique is the how you play it, like, instead of a ACU you get some kind of queen that makes drone that can build stuff, the drones could also 'evolve' into figthing units, (you build special tech buildings to allow new evolve options) and if you want to build experimental units you first need to evolve into a special drone (thats very big, got lots of health but can't barely move nor attack) and then it can evolve into t4 units, like a spider alike thing thats 2 times the size of a fatboy and has a special jump attack, (it standing right outside of fire range, it jumps onto your defenses BOOM, defenses are gone)
it would give a whole other way point of few for this game, because its obvious that a biological race wouldn't have any technology so no shields, no stealth things, no lasers, so in order to make this race give an actual change of survival it needs to have completly new stuff, like units with a dig-in function, buildings that spit accid against incoming artillary and nukes, t1 suicide jumping units, (cheap to make, can run fast and jump at their enemy while they just baraly within fire range and then explode)
also to make it unique, they only need biological mass to build etc which they don't get from mass extractors but from living stuff, (trees, enemies, themself)
just giving my 2 cents here, though it was a bit longer then planned
THE Master Chief: just the cheif, he hijacks enemy tanks, can kill anything and everything. no buildings, units just the cheif as an ACU usually dual-weilds SMG's has SPARTAN LASER for everything else, almost impossible to hit
