    The first batch of hover tanks for the 40k mod. As I type they are rolling... errr... floating... off the production lines, ready to kill some arrogant Space Marines ;)



    Falcon Grav Tank (descriptions stolen from the 40k units thread, along with bad spelling...):
    "Gracefull swoopy Tank unit. It hovers so it moves two spaces and ignores swamps and hill and can rebase n' stuff."

    http://www.civfanatics.net/uploads8/Falcon.zip
    EDIT: I forgot to stick the death animation in with the falcon! I've attached it, and it's now sitting at the bottom of this post!

    Fire Prism:
    "Like the Falcon, the Fire prism moves two spaces and ignores swamps and hills and rebases. It is a fairly heavy tank."

    http://www.civfanatics.net/uploads8/Prism.zip

    Nightspinner:
    "Mobile Arty which can atatck and defend are rebase and all that cool stuff"

    http://www.civfanatics.net/uploads8/NightSpinner.zip

    All 3 come with what sounds I could put together. Next up should be another load of grav tanks probs (wave serpent, firestorm, cobra), as I can base them on these guys, and can steal some animations from myself. I released these three now, as they are done, and I don't know how long the other three will take me to do.

    Have fun!

    EDIT: And here is the poor forgotten lost falcon death flic...

    EDIT 2: Fixed .ini also attached for the falcon

    EDIT 3: Fixed pedia .pcxs for all of them (wrong colour depth...) Attached below!

    Not bad! :) Altough i think they should have the Ulthwe Craftworld's colour scheme...
    Are you going to do the Scorpion Type II?

    It's civ-specific. I'm not entirely sure it it worked out well. Some colours I think they'll look odd in, while others seem fine...

    The scorpian is on the shortlist - what is the scoprian type 2?

    I like these units, but more importantly, I wanted to compliment you on your showmanship with that presentation gif. :)

    Exelent, I was hoping you'd release these this week, means I can gauge the required size for the Tau Hammerhead and devilfish.

    These are superb, the attack animations are very inventive. :)

    One thing I did notice, Is there no death animation for the falcon? I often forget to include flicks myself, prior to posting the zip, I hope thats the case. :(

    You're right... errr... there should be one! I'll just poke around on my PC to see where it has got too.

    30 seconds later: Ok, turns out I missedt he zipping directory when I was sorting it all out. I'll attach it to the first post...

    Wow! How did I miss these? These are amazing! :D

    I didn't realise that they were civ-coloured. I put them in-game and I was blown away by the colours! :cool: Your best units yet.

    I've only downloaded the Falcon right now but you have two problems :) In it's INI you miss-spelled the name for the Shruiken .wav sound (which crashes the game) and the pedia pics have not had their colours reduced to 256. I know how it is though - I've done much worse.

    Thanks :)
    CURSES! I have a nasty habit of rushing that stuff...

    I'll... err... do something about it!

    EDIT: Well, my computer says that they are 256 colours...
    Attached to the first post is the fixed falcon.ini. I had another look through the others, and they should be fine.

    Not sure what the prob is with the pcx's :confused: In-game the pics were black. When I checked them out they were in 16 million colours or something. It might just be a courpted download.
