Alright everybody. I am a newbie in modding -in DoW at least, I've spent hours and hours modding other games such as Fallout 3 or Rome/Medieval 2 Total War; though that's not the matter here- and, I must say that my experiences with Corsix's mod studio and the Attribute Editor were pretty unsuccessful -even though I tried to follow some of the tutorials. I'm not yet accustomed with those tools at all, but what I'm looking forward to create is really not a big deal and I think it would be quite easy and really quick for someone who has a lil' bit more experience than I have.
Being a fond of the Thousand Sons Legion, and now that Rubric Marines models are available in some mods over there; I'd just like to add them to the Chaos faction as the exact equivalents of average Chaos Marines, being also recruitable in a Chaos Temple, with the very same stats, cost, upgrades and weapons (bolter, heavy bolter, plasma...) -thus the gameplay would remain unharmed- so as I could make them the base units of my chaos army when I am in the mood to sack in the name of Tzeentch. I could just download one of the mods in which they are included of course; but every such mod I know is just not at my taste. I am also aware that there is a Thousand Sons mod being developped -but firstly, I don't have the required Soulstorm add-on, and secondly, well I just don't like having to wait more months while I'm pretty sure I could just add my damn beloved TS by myself with, of course, some precious help.
Ideally, my first idea was to create a "whole new" TS faction, a faction that would actually had been pretty much the very same than the Chaos one, only replacing average marines with rubric marines and obliterators with terminators as well as the heroes with more "TSish" ones. It is however far too difficult for my pretty much inexistant skills yet. So unless there's any easily faisible way to accomplish such a thing, I'd just focus on the first part.
I do have the required model, and I have tried some things with CMS and AE. There's a tutorial which explains how to add units to a faction through CMS, and, well, I have even failed to clone Chaos Marines, without even trying to add custom models.
Therefore, it would be really kind from anybody skilled to quickly explain to me how to achieve my goal, as I've been willing to lead true Magnus' marines to battle for a while...
By the way, I apologize if such a question has already been answered to, or if another tutorial could teach me everything I have to know in a clear way. I do have looked for it without result...
Also, english is not my native language... I'm sorry for any mistake or incomprehensible sentence I have made in that post.
