Has anyone thought of making a mod for the Tanith? I've read Dan Abnett's books about Gaunt's Ghosts and I am amazed by the stories. They're one of my favorite war/Sci-Fi books. I mean, like make a small group for the Tanith First-and-Only. Mainly focus on recon and hand-to-hand combat, as well as ranged (Snipers). If you've read the stories before, it'd be easy to make a storyline similar to that if you wanted to. But I think that it'd be awesome to have Stealth Commandos being able to hold their own while infiltrating enemy territory to take it over or something. Comments on this? I have to leave, but I'll try to read up.:)

There is no mod based on that but if you are to make a mod based on that then you might run into some issues Ok here is the run down for anyone making a mod (i read this some where on relic fourms)-You can not blend 40k and somthing not related to 40k togather or else you would get the boot for your mod. You would have to make a new game altogather, meaning that anything (race weapon vehical) added to the current 40k game would be revoked. But if you were to just remake the whole game (or not anything 40k related in it) then it would be ok. Also, you need to ask permission of the people who made watever the mode your basing this off of.

I haven't heard anything about a Tanith mod, but I would guess it couldn't be very hard. As long as you had a good coder, an animator, a modeller, and a texture artist. There are very few units the Tanith actually use, so that leaves room for more specialist units and abilities. I wouldn't mind doing it, but I'm already working on a few mods, and there is currently a drought of team members (more specifically coders, as the rest can be found from Thudo). And Kendall, you really should know about what you're posting about, especially if you're going to say there can be legal issues.
