    yeah


    i prefer the term 'tactical dreadnought armor' myself though, because... well, i've worked with those other Terminators too
    Well they are both killing machines, even though the 40k terminator has a guy inside, so what are you exactly working on? Or is it gonna be a surprise?

    Scratch that, is that freaking Terminator armour I see before me?
    It looks like it but Terminators don't have swords, don't they?

    well why not, the 'standard' loadout is ranged weapon/power fist combo or melee weapon/storm shield combo, but variations aren't uncommon; they're veterans, why not give them the weapons they feel they are most effective with?

    Go take a look at The Horus Heresy artbook, there are many Terminators that carry swords or axes, plus if a Terminator Chaplain can carry a Croxus Arcanum(think I got that right) then why not a sword?

    because for some reason my PC doesn't like SVN, like it doesn't like many things; using it gives me a bluescreen

    Edited:

    let's get a better look at this guy





    i still think he should be a bit larger

    :D Great! Thanks for that :3

    Also, one thing about the termie's size: If you wish to be lore friendly, Termies are 10 feet tall. Only 2 feet taller than a normal marine. Any bigger and he may be close to the Dreadnought, which should be 20 feet tall.

    Hmk.... As long as I get to see a bigger dreadie ;3

    Edited:

    *idea* the DoW2 dreadies don't have plasma cannons, twin heavy bolters, etc. just an assault cannon and a multi Melta. Is it possible to MAKE an arm slot using the hand held plasma cannon and heavy bolter from the pack?

    Nice. I would make the stealer a little bigger though. They're actually hella huge for their speed, esp Patricarchs and 'Lords. Might wanna up the phong exp too, just a tad.

    i'm using the shader trick that was applied to Wraith's marines, meaning i have to use a phong exponent texture that's simply a square of bright green; i can't up the exponent

    and yeah i thought it was a bit small too

    Btw I recommended lore mainly because things don't look strange. Termies are 10 feet tall, dreads are 20. Now, the termie is 15 or 16 feet. That's too big for the average marine, and, for fluff monsters like me, will make pictures look strange.... Buuut. That's just pic and lore-wise. Having a termie THAT big would be awesome :3

    Actually you can use a completely normal phong exponent texture. The just green one is a trick texture to get $phongalbedo tint working. (green channel is the albedo tint scale as far as I've been told)

    Yeah, if you want to tweak the exponent, just change the brightness of the red channel of that vtf. Darker means a duller shine and brighter means a sharper one. The green channel controls tinting, where black is no tint by diffuse color and white is full tint. The one included is equal $phongexponent 30 and tinting of about 75%. It gives most metallic stuff a very nice shine in source. If you want to make the phong stronger or weaker, just change the $phongboost number to higher or lower.

    For DoD:S and newer stuff it is, though I'm pretty sure EP2 changed the format.

    Ok, I believe I stand corrected. I think that terminator IS to actual size. By comparison, he's about 11 ft. Sooo epic job on the termie :3
