    You need to learn British, you old sot. Ace means Very good, or Excellent.

    Actually ... he needs to learn English ;) A much more useful language than 'American', which I'm told uses crotch-grabbing and spitting as the main means of communication :p

    Sorry for taking so long to reply to you Hikaro, been subjection to the torture that is know as living at work! (all of my time off has involved sleeping to recover!).

    Will you be able to animate Blender files, as far as i remember this can be saved as .3DS files.

    At the moment i unable to work on the defiler as the computer that it's on has finally died after years of faithful service!

    Goldflash - there is a older Wh40k pc game that was released a few years back called Chaos Gate it has a scenario editor that using the same tile based system as the civ editor, so i might be able to copy the graphics from this and edit them to .psx images for new terrian, it also allows the creation of buildings.
    I'll try and removed some of the images i did for you to have a look at of my old computer.
    There's a resource sheet which futuristic resources like drums of wire, ammo crates, etc. A buildings sheet with storage tower (could be used as granary), a mining complex (something to increase production) and a think i also had a defiled chapel.
    Could you make a list of what buildings you what making and whether or not you making a generic set of building for every race or whether you what different building for each race (i.e. wraithbone domes for the Eldar, ork huts, tyranid nests?)
    One last question are you including Titans in this mod, as i might start to build a Chaos Warhound Titan after the defiler, and i have a idea for what a Tau Titan can look that.

    Yeah I have chaos gate too. I never really played with the modding side of it, but the music can be easilly exported... I'm not sure if it's legal though. Unfortunetely it only has chaos and space marines, and most of the space marine units have been done by mr Muffins. The tanks might be quite useful though....

    There is a great big list which is linked in my sig. Pick soemthign from there... I would prefer non-Space Marien foot units, however... That list isn't complete but... If smething is pretty important in the table top it probably will be in the mod as well.

    Just voted for an Eldar Guardian.
    Also an Imperian Guards Man is being worked on, or is already done.

    Yeah, I've got about three imperial guard as well as two chaos guardsmen under way, so don't worry about them. :)

    Vote for whatevery you like (including pandas with machine guns), but if you want to pick a warhammer 40K unit try either the eldar or Tau, as these have zero representation so far.

    Or perhaps a tyranid genestealer...

    Heres an idea I'm working on. As I said earlier I think a "road to mass production" is a good way to aproach the tech tree. With that in mind I'm thinking of how to do the early tech tree.

    For main military units I'm thinking of modern infantry by either Balou or the Kinboat one. Both armed with autoguns.
    For defence there is the german machine gunners and panzerfaust from PTW, with the standard civ III rifleman as uniformed voulenteer militia (armed with a simple rifle) the cheapest and weakest unit available.

    I think An imperial colony ship would be crewed mostly by aristocrats, and clergy (imperial preists and inquisitors). For the labourers you would need a group of dispensible workers, the kind of slave labour used in early austrailian colonies. With this in mind I think Drafted convicts would be a nececary part of any military force, as the upper classes would be too busy directing the battle or carying out punishments on thier own men to keep them all in line.

    An exception could be very rich aristocrats with advanced weaponary forming hunting bands, performing hit and run raids on the enemies of the imperium in the aim of capturing trophies. In The spin off game "necromunda" these were the spyras, nobles from the hive spyre who decend to hunt the underhive scum.

    Here's my design for a convict battalion, I've actualy changed the gun to blue, as it doesn't fade in so much.
