Post your WW2 unit graphics in this thread.
Some "retro"-style WW2 infantry units from a WIP project...
I like these "mini" units a lot. I was using some of your last minis for an updated version of Rise of the Dictators. I think these are even better. They remind me of the 1:72 scale toy soldiers I played with as I child. Now I just play with them on the PC instead
Feels more like moving armies on the board...Megalomania!
I suppose Fairline can post his own graphics, but since I've already uploaded these to CFC for someone else, I might as well post the links. These PNGs have been compressed with PNGOut and are IE-friendly. I routinely clean up the transparent backgrounds, as I always seem to find some impertinent units showing off their pink bits in the game.
In the name of CHURCHILL'S SOCKS! This is a happy day for WW2 GFX!
Pure genius! Gareth is the unrivalled Moriarty of pixels!
I have seen these units before but they still blow my socks off! Great idea to post them right near the start of the WWII thread. These should be more than enough to cover almost any conceivable WWII scenario.
Thanks again for saving me the effort and sorting the pngs out Jon
If there's anything you want fixed, removed or swapped, let me know. All PNGs have been compressed with PNGOut/PNGGauntlet, which shaves about 20% off the size and removes the gAMA chunk (causes gamma problems in IE).
Nope all good thanks. Must get me PNGout again as I don't have it on this comp. Do you know if there's a plugin for GIMP to strip png alpha channels?
gAMA chunk, mate, gAMA chunk . I've got no idea. I know there are plugins for IrfanView and Photoshop. I use PNGGauntlet, which is drag and drop with batch processing, and I drop Ken Silverman's latest version of PNGOut in the \Program Files\PNGGauntlet\support folder.
Lets kick this thread to the front!
A poor & lonely cowboy with his little friend.
Would you be willing to do a couple of artillery units, Tanelorn?
Of course, what would you like?
Great, thanks! I'm looking for WWII Soviet 76mm and 122mm towed artillery. Fairline has done a 152mm heavy gun, so I'm looking for a couple of complimentary units. Btw, his 76mm is an anti-tank weapon, I'm looking for the field gun.
Deal. Id' propose an M-30 for the 122mm piece: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/122_mm_howitzer_M1938_(M-30)
The older M1910/30 is part of Fairline's Red October set:
For the 76mm I'd suggest the USV (Fairline's piece is the ZiS-3 that replaced it)
Sounds good. Thanks.
The easy one first, the USV. I just chopped the barell of the ZIS at 2/3rds and modified the glacis/shield. There is supposed to be a sliding panel there, it is adjustable. I didn't sign it, I didn't really change it much.
Very nice job. Would it be possible to elevate the barrel somewhat to differentiate it from an anti-tank gun?
