hey guys and gals, :cya: i was wondering if there were any Iron warriors skins for chaos? i've looked on here and [EMAIL="Skins@hiveworldterra"]hiveworldterra[/EMAIL] but i cant find anything. It just seems to me that it would be quite easy to do, as all it really requires is Chevrons/hazard stripes, and i happen to know Gimp comes WITH a custom brush that does those... not sure about photoshop though. are there any out there, of either Marines or vehicles? I would do it myself, as it seems simple to actually do the Skinning bit but i just cant get the mod tools to work, besides the map editor.
Revenge was here.

wellfor a start you dont need the mod tools to create skins all you need is either gimp or photoshop. use iboards texture tool to get the choase marines skin thenit should split it down into 5 files then take one and open it with either of the 2 softwees i mentioned. And it is not easy trust me.
ok... sorry that i assumed it was easy, the only skinning i've ever done was for Jedi academy, and that was pretty easy to do, i'll have a look for the Ibboards texture tool and a Tutorial to do it myself, Sorry for presuming it would be easy :(

Actually it should be more or less the same as skinning for jedi academy.
You just need to unpack the textures from the sga and convert them with the texture tool. After that, you can normally open them in photoshop or gimp.
Right, i know this is major threadromancy, but i thought it would be a good idea to post it here rather than a new thread. i actually, unlike most people, took in people's advice, and i have learnt to Skin, forced the Mod tools to work through giving them a new .Exe so they now work, asked around on the HWT forums (Ibboard is awesome btw, he helped me so much) I am making a complete Iron Warriors Chaos race reskin, to be released in packs, An infantry pack with all infantry, a HQ pack with the Hq units, a Vehicle pack, and a Building pack. all units are having chevrons placed in various places, the chevrons are quite simple, i just Select an area and fill it with the Chevron Prefab, and then Convolve the area to remove the Pixellation, but the effect is overall good. just in case anyone thinks i wont see this through, i currently have the Marine (right shoulder Chevronned) Defiler (leg plates chevronned) Predator (various places chevronned) and the Troop building done, and this only took me 4 days, (not the whole thing, the learning took 3 weeks ;)) so expect this to be released on Dowfiles and SkinsatHWT in between a week and a month, i have a very random schedule, i could be doing a skin every few hours, or one a week. nonetheless, it WILL be done, and Every unit in Chaos except the Cultists and Heretics will be modified.
