News Update - 100322
Hello, you unfortunate followers of a slowly developing total conversion!

I'm finally getting around to posting some actual updates today, with sparkling new pics on top of that!

The state of the mod is that it's progressing really really slowly (curse you shiny new games!), however, I've got that map done that I was working on, man.. I didn't realise the amount of time it took making urban maps.. and it's not even particularly big either (1v1 map), now I'm just gonna try slapping it ingame and see if our massive imperial guard structures will fit in the zone I left open for building placement. And then I just might release a first version of this God-Emperor forsaken mod! (probably pretty unbalanced and buggy though).

And after that we'll see where I go, probably make some easy traitor guard/chaos units and add some kind of anti-tank infantry or a Leman Russ since there's currently nothing that can kill tanks except for the grenade launcher that you can upgrade your guardsman squads with (which is temporary obviously because they shouldn't be that good at killing armour).

And also, relating to the whole resource bit of the mod I thought I might mention that we're going without tiberium (obviously), and each faction will have a different type of building that generates resources or "Faith" as is the case with the Imperial Guard's "Shrines of the Ecclesiarchy". Chaos will have some sort of mobile taint generating deployable vehicle that spreads taint around it and weakens enemies who walk on the tainted ground (if we get that far), using the tiberium growth code.

Anyways, here's the pretty pictures of the Imperial Guard UI v0.9 (still a few buttons and cameos to replace) and at the same time it also shows a bunch of Basilisks both in deployed and undeployed mode (the second picture is the latest version of the UI (notice the slight difference in the button icons for structures and stuff).

Until the next update,
Emperor Protects.

Yep, it's that time of the month now, news update time.

I've done loads of skinning, so we've got a bunch of things to show you this month,
the months to come might be less visually beautiful in the new model department but
we'll see what we can manage, we will likely be showing some more civilian props that will be
in the map Cal is making right now.

At the moment I'm at hard work making new animations for the Basilisk since the
original ones were completely psycho. (you have to agree that's a pretty damn good reason)
And they should be done in a couple of days.

That makes the Imperial Guard basically done, in the model/texture department anyway
but they still need hulks and craploads of 2D stuff sorted like a command bar and cameos.

Still can't tell you a certain date we'll be releasing our first uber-alpha version, but we're still
getting there, slowly but surely. :p

For now, enjoy these screenshots of the ingame Departmento Munitorum, Hellhound and
Grenade Launcher guardsman.

Until next time,
Emperor Protects.

Alright so it's been a "couple" of days and well the space marine i wanted to show you still isn't
ingame nor has the basilisk crew been fixed yet this is mainly due to an unfortunate turn of events
leading to the purchase of Super Smash Bros. Brawl (best game ever btw.)

Needless to say work has been somewhat stalled because of it.. it should pick up some speed
in a few weeks tho.. (hopefully.. i repeat.. awesome game ^_^)
So yeah we didn't manage to put it ingame yet but that doesn't mean we can't show a render to you.

Also i mentioned I'd post some more Basilisk pictures and for what its worth here they are
(again without animated bits mind you). And as a bonus I decided to slap in a render of some
of our Civil models aswell.

Shouldn't be too long before the next update.. but until next time, enjoy these screens and..
Emperor Protects.

Yes, yes we're still alive..

It's been like 2 months since we posted anything, but work has been done in the dark
but it has been slow work, really slow, considering we have only one texture artist on
the team right now and loads of models that are just waiting for a paint job,
that's why I'd like to see any people interested in helping out email or pm me
(you can find my email on moddb or on our forums)

Anyways, I did mention that work has been going on in the dark didn't I?

Well what's been done is we've gotten the Basilisk ingame albeit without any of it's fancy
animations we've made (two guardsmen crewing it, doing crew stuff), ran into a snag
when we tried to export it so we had to remove the crew for now until we can purge the
filth that is keeping us from doing the Emperor proud.

We also decided to throw in a screenshot of the new improved normal map on the
chimera treads.

Also we should have some space marine related news along with some more shots of the
basilisk coming up in a couple of days..

So until then, enjoy these screenshots,
Emperor Protects.
