I had contemplated adding a "race"-like stipulation like I did with the spaceships, but decided against it. Was going to be categories like:

Magic
Mutant
Alien
Tech
Human

but I figured you guys would probably categorize yourself using these arch-types anyway for the most part.

if texturing is not required then is this just a modeling challenge?

If that's what you'd prefer. If you want to texture, please do. Presentation is really what is judged, if you boil it all down. I've seen really well presented untextured models and really crappy presented fully textured models.
