    I did some Button, most were requested by some folks.

    Maybe they are also of some use for others, so i decided to open this post!

    Use them any way you want.


    Here are the Fantasy Units:

    Some of those are from CIV III and some are from Graphics made by others for CIV III.
    If anybody wants credit for something just say so, because i don´t remember which ones from whom!

    !!New!!
    Some promotions:

    Most are based on promotions that were in the first release of the Warhammer Fantasy Battle Mod (link in my sig. ;) )
    If anybody wants higher levels of those promotions (or completely new ones!) just PM me.

    Can I make a request for some buttons?

    I need the following for a Mod I'm working on (I don't have the ability to anything graphical or modeling, but I can edit things, so I'm completely dependant upon others for the material I can work with). And it's a long list of buttons I need :(

    Biplane
    Biplane With a Bomb being Dropped (different color biplane)
    Biplane flying off a Carrier
    Biplane With a Bomb being Dropped (different color biplane) flying off a Carrier
    Original fighter button made to like like flying off a carrier
    1950's era Jet fighter
    1950's era Jet fighter flying off a Carrier
    1950's era Jet bomber
    1950's era Jet bomber flying off a Carrier
    The Stealth bomber button with a red radiation symbol added to it.
    Cruiser
    Aegis Cruiser
    WW2 Style Aircraft Carrier
    A Modern Destroyer
    Ship 'o Line
    Man 'o War
    Privateer
    Trireme
    Nuclear Sub
    Medical Transport (transport button with Red Cross added)

    Of course, if someone could write me pm or post a could tutoial that any idiot like myself could follow (specifically saying what programs I need etc) i could do it myself and save everyone the trouble and then post my work for anyone to use. :)

    Start by downloading The Gimp. It's an open-source (free) image editor like Photoshop. There are tutorials on their site or on GIMP Talk. Do a Google search for the DDS plugin which will let you edit and save DDS files.

    I found it this weekend but haven't had a chance to play with it. I'll be able to tonight (can't fricken wait until tommorrow when I get internet service at the house). After that, do I just pick an image and make it a certain size saved as a .dds?

    I found it off of a Jethro Tull fansite and loved it. I have no idea what it really is other than like Duke said, a Pied Piper or Ian Anderson depiction.
