    Snipers everywhere! Vindicare Assassin and Catachan Sniper for the WH40K, which could also be used for a covert and jungle/woodland sniper in another mod, and an urban/artic and a regular police-style sniper. Unfortunately, no sounds for now, but i will hopefully find some suitable ones (or someone posts some here) and post a separate download

    Vindicare Assassin
    Catachan Sniper
    Urban Sniper
    Sniper

    NOTE: I have playtested the Vindicare and Urban Sniper and they were fine, and since the process was exactly the same i ASSUME the other two are ok. if not, PLEASE let me know so i can fix it.

    Cheers and enjoy

    These are very nice. I don't think there are any other sniper units so these will fill that gap nicely! :goodjob:

    There are a few snipers, but not as good, and not so sniperish.

    So they are indeed a very good addition...

    I'll use them one day, when my move reaches the modern era.

    Estimate time : between 6 and 16 years!

    Really cool units! I could use one or two of those in several projects. Thanks man!

    So is the 40K Mod still being worked on? I tried to re-download the pre-alpha a while back but the links seem to be dead now.

    Cheers,

    Nick

    Glad you guys like 'em!

    The mod is being worked on slowly. I've got a lot of units for it on the go tho, so once i start releasing them it might (hopefully) generate more interest

    Not sure i can help with downloading the beta tho

    Awesome work! I could see these being invisible units with a decent and lethal bombard with a range of 1 (unlike other foot units) in the modern era.

    Great job, I especially like the Catachan Sniper. It will be nice to finally see a WH40K mod completed. "crosses fingers"

    Awesome looking units! That is one gap in the unit spectrum that has been empty for quite some time.

    nick0515 (I'm pretty sure it was u, or am I going crazy?) pointed out some games that might be able to have conversions done from 40k universe (IIRC, been outta town for a week, can't remember which game it was); I have yet time to try any of them out; but I might be able to give you a hand LMR!, I will check it out next week and see if any are possible, if so I can try to do some units that you don't have yet.

    Yep it was me. Dawn of War and it's expansions have tons of 40K units. There is also Dawn of War 2 but I've never played that. I briefly looked into it and it seems that there are programs available to extract DoW units to blender and 3ds Max.

    Races in those games:

    Space Marines
    Chaos Space Marines
    Imperial Guard
    Tau
    Orks
    Eldar
    Dark Eldar
    Necrons
    Sisters of battle

    As it is I believe units for the Orks, Space Marines and Imperial Guard are fairly complete in terms of existing Civ 3 units. There are quite a lot of Chaos vehicles done too. The other races, however, have little or no civ 3 units made. Dawn of War conversions could greatly enhance the unit lines for a 40K mod.

    DoW 2 apparently adds another race, the Tyranids.

    If you could find some time to work on some 40K conversions that would be awesome, Tom.

    I wish I had the time, but at present I bearly have time to test CoMM3 and do small amounts of work on my own mods.

    Plus I'm too useless at this kind of stuff. I tried to do your tutorial for converting units from Atlantica Online and failed at the first step as I was unable to run Python. Pathetic aye :sad:

    Cheers,

    Nick
