    For the record if you do make the hellgun as a bodygroup, remember to separate it from the backpack. Which could be useable in itself as a functional bodygroup.
    Clearly you know what's up, I was thinking about doing that as well as making the body groups for the back packs to the Heavy Bolter and Plasma Cannon for the Space Marines.

    Just another note as I am working on the Space Marines at this moment they are going to have a TON of combinations thanks to all the miscellaneous doodads from single player (purity seals, iron halo, etc). I think I already have about 1500 possible combinations (with body groups alone) and I've only ripped about half the content.

    Necro is doing most of the heavy lifting now, I showed him how to do some shit with compiling and whatnot, but in the end, I'm just going back to fix all the smooth groups, bake normals, and do physics. He discovered how to rip the models, and he's the one continuing to rip them.

    Actually there should be a bit more. Since most of the named items have their own texture albeit use the existing meshes. Mostly the case with weapons - though some armors as well.
    Would have to check the SGA's out myself.

    Likewise the most bodygroups should be with the Orks, marines and CSM, eldar do have some but not a lot, and tyranids usually don't get much more beyond skinfamilies in higher tiers. Equipments is still a functional bodygroup.

    They're so badass, they strapped two earthshakers together and made a minotaur. Double awesomeness.

    i like to think bloos models make a sense of competition.
    makes things interesting
    relax dawg, srsly. kno' wat i'm sayin'?
    it'd really help if you said "yeah we're doing bodygroups" instead of bein like "ok lol default grey standard hurr durr 1 variant ya k?"

    Edited:

    and no if i was trolling you'd probably be raging more than you already are
    im just going to say can you please not talk about bloos on this ^^ if he releases them thats fine and dandy but id rather wait for these ones

    1:am i correct in guessing that these will be rigged to the hl2 skeleton, made playermodels and maybe npcs? (possibly with custom animations for the space marines)?

    2: am i wrong to suggest at least a few sweps?

    3: if npcs are made they should
    a: have randomized body groups
    b: have npcs that fight in race mode (marines kill necrons) and organisation by colours( green chaos marines and orcs fight red chaos marines and eldar)

    2: No you aren't wrong to suggest SWEPS, but I wont be making them.

    Yes. Though I don't know when.


    Updates on everything else:
    I started working on the texture groups and hit a big problem, with the amount of body groups I put on the model it increased the amount of materials required and apparently the model compiler will not allow me to create a model with more then 32 materials. So I will just be releasing each skin as a separate model, since it would probably take me a month to redo the UV maps onto one super map. (though after release I will gladly compile additional models for people that make really nice skins) The plan right now is to release the space marines, dreadnought and predator with 1 or 2 skins (in addition to the grey, most likely Blood Ravens and Dark Angels.) within a week.

    is it possible that you release the instruction or i'll PM you for the instruction on how to extract the dow2 models? I have no plans on releasing them, they are just for case studies uses. i.e. Game assets - Modeling.

    Yes but not all of them because their are too many. Basically there are 4 main armor types then just a ton of extra doodads, widgets, and thingamajigs that go over it. I've ripped and added on about 1/3 of that extra stuff from the single player.

    In my GENUINE OPINION, I feel that the Space Marines are cool, but compared to the guard, they are PUSSIES.
    Space Marines:
    Wear the equivalent of an Abrams tank's frontal armor
    Gun that shoots MINI-ROCKETS THAT EXPLODE
    Power Swords.
    IG:
    Cardboard armor
    Flashlights with mounted toothpicks.

    Both win in the end, but who had the harder fight?
    Who sacrificed more?
    Mr.Walking Tank, or the ordinary man, drafted to fight for the Emperor?

    Space marines are the best of the best of the best, compared to imperial guard who win through numbers. One Space Marine is equivalent to about a hundred ig. Although...that changes depending on chapter...1 ig is equiv to 30 dark angels...

    Correct except for it being an endoskeleton. It's solid inside. (No need to be an outer skelet when you think about it as opposed to a dread or khan since there's no body in it)

    well you are right with the guard spelling ^^ ty for correcting that and well fair enough on the space marine being pussies but space marines in the comics are mostly sent in to the hardest missions :P but thats comic books for you and well if you look at it this way Chaos are unstoppable they are only able to hold them back but sooner or later chaos will win :P but what do i know :D

    anyways i didnt want to argue with you i just wanted to ask you to stop talking about bloos and thanks for the info :D

    Space Marines are the super soldiers of the Imperium, they are the finest warriors the Imperium of Man has to offer, they are sent into the most hellish warzones that no mere guardsmen regiment can fight - they are the elite forces and protectors of humanity, Guardsmen are the backbone.

    I'm a guardsmen player and fanatic, even I can admit Space Marines are far superior, read their fluff.
