    And what about returning Grey Knight back to Infantry and setting Psilencer as tactics? Or psilencer to support and psycannon to tactics. I don't know which is better.

    To fill empty spaces in unit lists I suggest such changes for Imperium and Chaos:

    Imperial Guard

    Starting- Guardsman
    Infantry- Shock Trooper
    Support- Lascannon
    Promethium - Hellhound
    Fast Attack- Banewolf

    Witch Hunters

    Mobility- Seraphim
    Mobile Infantry- Inquisitorial Chimera
    Assault Infantry- Dominion
    Fast Attack- Repressor

    Flight - Lightning Strike Fighter

    Daemon Hunters

    Tactics- Psycannon
    Mobile Infantry- Inquisitorial Chimera
    Support- Psilencer
    Heavy Support- Assault(?) Dread Knight

    Flight - Lightning Strike Fighter

    Space Marines

    Promethieum - Heavy Flamer
    Flight - Landspeeder

    Flight - Stormtalon

    Chaos

    Promethieum - Chaos Flamer
    Fast Attack- Defiler
    Flight - Fury
    Field Artillery- Forge Fiend

    For ork I suggest to move Gun Trukk to generic field artillery and give Lobba to Wild Orks.

    How are you making these units, mate? Are they made in poser? Are the models available freely somewhere?

    After a little over a week with Easter holidays in the middle? Don't worry, you're not being ignored. Modders have lives.

    I think the original unit lines made by goldflash were based more on what units were available at the time, so since no one had made a space marine w/ flamer, he didnt bother adding it in.

    My thoughts

    Thanks for replying)

    I agree in general. We should also think about units usefulness. There are a few units that upgrades or options to anything.

    The fact is that imperial troops are weeker than inquisitorial. Since mobile infantry is fast variant of basic infantry, inquisitorial variant should be more powerful. We can even use the same model for both variants. Only stats will differ.

    Just do not think it will makes sence in Civ)) Player can spawn 1000 Dreadknights if he wishes)) But Grey Knights do not have much vechilces (at least I could not find much). We also can move orbital bombardment to field and arco-flagellant to siege of Grey Knights.

    Lobba is just to "wild" in my opinion to be used by standart orks. But, I guess, there is no other way.

    I'm trying myself at unit-maken. I hope I can make at least some placeholders when I learn more. So could you please tell me what units are you worknig at the moment or going to make. So I will not touch them?

    A lobba is a type of kannon, like a mortar, not a catapult

    Keep an eye on the first post, i'll start updating that with things that are WIP

    (Came here as soon as I saw your pm)

    Soul Grinders can come in a number of colors and shapes, so what you do is up to you. Personly I prefer them blue, but whatever color you end up with is fine by me.

    I think the head you chose make it look a bit like a Skaven unit. If you can find a head that's more demon-esque or monster-like that would be great, but I understand you are probably limited by what's available to use?

    The sword look pretty good to me already. As does the rest! :)

    Yeah, i'm using one of kinboat's trolloc heads with the ears removed. below is a comparison shot with a gw soulgrinder: i've added horns, some piping and a few more fangs to the top of the mouth to try and make it more daemonic. Need to find a way to beef him up too

    I can easily do multiple versions of it: one like this (red w/ civ colour on chassis), blue (blue w/ civ colour on chassis), and civ colour (civ coloured body w/ grey chassis). It'll just take a while to render.

    At the moment i'm using three defiler models, two pdms and a trolloc head, plus all the fangs are props and there are quite a few of them :crazyeye:

    The improvements you made to the head are awesome.

    Multiple version would be great. :)

    Bugger me, I hate being right :p

    Took ~48 hrs to render the first version of the Soulgrinder. The only reason I'm not 100% sure is that for most of the renders I left it going while I went to bed or work.

    I'll have a preview up soon
