    I still want to know what kind of terrain and doodads and unit models will be used and I would like to know how the gun shot effects look.

    In my opinion, we all should start to make more detailed models and skins related to wh40k for starcraft 2. Probably when it would come out we will finished to make meshes and skins. :wink: The problem would be animations as they will probably have they own format :bored:

    When you are used to play Pen and Paper you realy dont need explosions and other flashy things. Its a great thing to see the enemy loosing units in a round.
    Or surviving under the enemy fire. The dices bring the action into the game ;)
    Also the expression of a player when you shoot their tank with an almost impossible move and it will explode.

    Also my 4 friends and me already got atleast 4 armys with over 10.000 points, since we started collecting 6 years ago where a Leman Russ was only 10Bucks :p

    But you are right now the prices are ridicoulous.
    And i think it would be better to wait for SC2 with this mod, because the Physik Engine, i also think killed units in Sc2 will fly into the air and everything.

    I recommend not making any Starcraft 2 models or skins for WH40k, instead i recommend building a large ammount for wc3 because when Starcraft 2 comes out, I'm porting this map over.

    starcraft 2 will be a while off and starcraft 2 might not even have art tools released. And people will still play warcraft3 just not as many.

    Sounds interesting. I haven't really bothered reading all of the posts, but I'm going to guess that this will be a Single-Player map or Campaign. If you plan on making it compatible for BNet, don't count on it. Battle Net's filesize limit of maps is 4MB and not one KB higher!

    This project sounds interesting and once it gets a good team assembled, I will probably look forward to this... after some screenshots are released of course! WE NEED EYE-CANDY!

    It sounds cool, but for futuristic projects, Id only start them if a large portion of models are already available.
    There have been many many 40k mods come and go over the years, so id recommend for something like this best to save it for Sc2.

    Getting together a full team of modellers is near impossible, unless ure really lucky.

    I still think this would make a fine warcraft mod. As starcraft 2 will take a while to get here even another 2 years. And not to mention it will be an entirely different format to try and work with.
