    Ok, I converted GK dreadnought and more to follow.

    I want to change Eldar units this way:


    Support - Support Platform
    Assault Infantry - Fire Dragon
    Walkers - Wraithlord
    Elite Infantry - Wraithguard
    Stealth - Striking Scorpion
    Field Artillery - Nightspinner
    Special Weapons - Avatar of Khaine
    Champion - Autarch

    Naval Transport - Eldar Transport
    Naval Warfare - Dragonship
    Naval Supremacy - Wraithship

    This will significantly reduce the amount of needed units. Only Autarch, Farseer, Phoenix and ships are left to do this way.

    Actually, I want to add later other eldar factions - Harlequins, Corsairs and Ynnari, but not now.

    After looking at IA13, last IA index, I came up with following list for Renegades and Heretics:

    Settler - Dark Servitor
    Worker - Slave (I will use Firaxis graphics, probably)
    Starting - Cultist
    Infantry - Traitor
    Tactics - Mutant (aaglo's Mutant for Fallout mod)
    Mobility - Traitor Rider (I cannot convert this one but can use some placeholder, like Tom2050's Dread Knight)
    Mobile Infantry - Traitor Chimera
    Support - Big Mutant (another Mutant for Fallout mod by Aaglo)
    Assault Infantry - Ogryn Brute (convertable) or Plague Ogre (Monster Zombie from EFZI2)
    Fast Attack - Traitor Hellhound
    Walkers - Traitor Sentinel
    Elite Infantry - Disciples (Jin Roh unit fits perfectly)
    Stealth - Stalker (there is no such unit in WH40k as Infiltrator, but Marauder Stalker is a closest thing. Just a rename)
    Heavy Support - Traitor Russ (already working on it)
    Siege - Traitor Basilisk
    Field Artillery - Defiler (actually RG doesn't have defilers, but they use other demon engines. It will be OK)
    Special Weapons - Chaos Spawn (convertable)
    Heroes - Rogue Psyker
    AA - Traitor Hydra
    Super Heavy - Brass Scorpion or Plaguereaper (I don't see any reason not to use these, as Brass Scorpions are common among Renegade Guard)
    Champion - Apostate Cardinal (convertable)

    This is it. I plan converting Traitor Russ firts.

    I made a Default animation for orbital bombardment and thought, that every faction needs their own cruise missile-type unit (at least, race-wide).

    Here are my suggestions:

    Imperium - Hunter-Killer, Deathstrike (Imperial Guard only)
    Chaos - Doom bolt, or some other spell (I will search through Tom2050's spell library if I find something apropriate)
    Ork - Grot Rokkit (already have one)
    Eldar - Psychic Storm (another spell, I even have ideas what to use)
    Tau - Seeker missile

    Nukes:

    Imperium - Vortex Torpedo
    Chaos - Warpstorm
    Ork - Rok
    Eldar - Eldrich Storm
    Tau - too philanthropic to use them

    What's your opinion? Somebody? Anybody? Please?

    Decided to start making the interface. Started with a military adviser.

    Interface looks nice, keep it up! The only thing I'd change is a commissar instead of guardsman.

    The interface of the main adviser and adviser on science. Maybe someone knows how to change the awful pink font color?

    Ok, I finished magic units for space marines and chaos. It leaves just a bit to finish their lines.

    What really concers me now (besides leaderheads and navy, as always) is fate of Chaos Rhino made by Quinzy. The problem is only LMR has files, AFAIK, and he wasn't around for almost two years.

    Maybe, someone can contact him or give contacts to me? I really do not want to make a conversion of a unit, that is already made.

    Oh that's a shame LMR isn't around. I don't have any way to contact him. Hopefully he will be back soon!

    Good news: LMR sent me Chaos Rhino, and it works fine!

    That's great! Does LMR have any plans to come back to unit making or the forums? Not that I soend much time here these days.

    I'm really glad you are keeping this mod giing though and finishing all the unit lines! Thank you!

    Absolutely mind-blowing that people are still dedicated to working and contributing to this project over all these years.

    Have any folks here played Warhammer 40k Gladius: Relics of war, its as if Warhammer 40k and Civilization had a baby, except that baby is missing its limbs because the game doesn't have that many factions, terrain, or unit types yet, but it gives off a good impression of a hidden gem like this mod?
