Requesting the making of a mod, though there's nothing I can offer in return. I'm not a moder, and I have none of the things available to let me make them. It's for a guard army, and I need a banner and badge (either one or both if possible). " 'The 99th Hereticus' are a guardsmen regiment ignored by the Emperor when they once attacked an Ork world. When they requested backup after loosing a substantial amount of men and special forces, the emperor declined and set forth more men to counter the Tyranid attack. The 99th Cadian was slaughtered horribly, only the general and the odd troop surviving- but astonishingly, they managed to escape... though all of them had at one time of another gone insane by the long war. There were about 50 of these people who remain alive today and serve as some of the most important troops. But when they tried to return to guardsmen territory, they were rejected under the will of the emperor due to their state of mind, and were accused of heresy. The general of the 99th Cadian fled to and stayed in the shadows of the far future for at least ten years before springing forth again with another troupe... guardsmen and the like who were set for capitol punishment and worse due to their treason and treachery over the years gone by. Man and Ogryn alike had joined him, and eventually the general had himself a large division of stolen war machines and kidnapped techpriests. They took down several other regiments out of bloodlust and sheer hatred, but they are still unrecognized by most and remain for the most part unknown. Like ghosts, they continue to silently ambush and eliminate their enemies, especially their old friends- the other Cadians..." What I need is a badge for my men, as well as if possible a banner. The badge is pretty easy, all I need is a badge similar to the others but reading "99". You can just copy the 9 from the other badges and double it I guess. As for the banner, I'd like it to look hereticy. Maybe just one of the other banners altered to look weathered and worn. Something cool and not too flamboyant. My guardsmen have brown armour and their clothing beneath the padding is like a whiteish-grey, for color reference. Thanks, I know it's an odd request and I doubt anyone would want to do it, but I would appreciate if someone could spend maybe 15 minutes on this for me. -sdpervin
I think this might be better to post in the graphic section of the forums.
Specify, that the badge should be an alpha layered tga 64x64 and the badge a a 96picxel height and 64 pixel width alpha layered tga.
Someone correct if I'm wrong.
Since you're not asking for a mod (thankfully) but merely for a graphic
(space marine voice)hmm... HERESY I SAY!! i should take a boltgun to your face for spouting such. (normal voice) but i think that is a good idea, it would be even better if they had warp twisted armor, or mutations, and the like to reinforce the heretical/renegade look.
well you won't get people to change you the look of the units themselves.
a) not enough modellers b) impossibility to really play online c) all possibly available moddellers are somewhere in mods.
Umm... well, I kind of meant a mod. But if that's a problem I guess I can take the image and ask someone to insert it into the game. I don't mean the actual units, I want to make them look like guardsmen (thought when I start IG when I'm done with Orks as my second army they may looks a bit odd :P). Sorry if my request seems enforcing and rude, I didn't mean it that way. lol
no it's not that. It's just, that there aren't capacities for these request.
A very common thing said about mods in general is don't ask for it be done, ask how it ought to be done.
Or start with little self done mods and progress thus further.
I can't help you too much, since I'm justa mapper and not a modder

:ditto: You can always get 'The Gimp' for free. It is not as easy to use as say photoshop but it will give you the same results. You can also download a tutorial on how to use it from relic forums and then make as many badges and banners as you like

Google my friend, Google. 'tis a wonderous place.
I like the idea and the story. Wouldnt mind making the badge and banner for you, but since it's 4 hours ago the last reply came, I take it, it's too late.
... Still cool idea though :)
