    Download 'the Gimp' at the tools!
    When u use that u can make a layer that is transparet, when u use the eraser tool, the backround is transparent (Alphaed)

    BuT! You have to remember that u can't alpha out whatever you want becouse then it will become "holes" in the unit when u "put the skin on"! If you f.ex. alpha out his torso it will become a hole there, and from some sight views u can see the grount trou the legs! But to take an other ex. you may alpha out weapons to make weapon less units or just aplha out a little bit of it, and make a new form on the blade f.ex ;)
