    Fortis1... Good to see your unit conversions are coming along very well.

    ...as for converting and using Buildings, if you can convert the Buildings, they can be resized, adjusted and put together for use in the Civ Game.

    Thanks, but the matter is that DoW buildings always seemed sort of strange to me. I will convert them sometime soon anyway.

    Converted Brass Scorpion. Wanted to C'n'P some shooting effects for main cannon but it is closed by claws almost at every frame which confuses me and as I still lack skills in image editing this has to wait... by now.

    Screamer is ready. So if you ever needed a giant flying devilfish than here it is.

    Finally behold the fury of Pus-Cannon!.. Khm. He is twitchy in some directions during attacks but I did my best. Credits for effects goes to Muffins, Quinzy and LMR. Some guns do not fire in some directions because closed by other guns or hull.

    Done Wraithlord. Only 4 animation on of which is simple C'n'P. There was no suitable animation for him going in fighting stance so I screwed the idea of adding fighting attacks.

    Very nice conversions, Fortis1 :) The models look good, and you nicely turned them into flics, but the effects could use more work. Explosions on the death.flc, firing effects, etc. I know it's a lot of work, I'm just giving some useful criticism. Keep it up!

    Thank you, T-mun, I think that useful criticism is better than praise;) But, as I stated several times, I lack skill in image editing and my first conversions haven't had effects at all. Latest conversions have "better something than nothing" effects. But, I guess this is a step forward. So feel free to critisize and I'll do what I can.

    Can anyone advise me a size for Eldar Nightwing? Is it smaller/larger than Thunderbolt or Hell Talon (or any other flier)?

    For comparison:

    Helltalon - length: 20.3m, width 10.4m, height: 3m
    Thunderbolt - length: 14.2m, width: 16.1m, height: 3.5m
    Nightwing - length: 12m, width: 15.4m, height: 4.37m

    But I shouldn't matter much. As long as it's not obviously too large or small

    Keep on converting/creating units, and your skills will improve :) You're already doing very well.

    10th Anniversary of the beginning of WH40K mod development is coming, so I decided I have to dedicate some work to it. So here three Kroot units for Tau Empire unit line. So Kroot part of Tau units is finished in one shot. There are no shooting attacks and Krootox and Knarloc come riderless. No civ-colors either.

    Thanks, guys. There's nothing much I do to make them but it really takes some time and routine work. So I'm very glad to know someone likes it.:D
