Nothing can be "final" in modding ;) We need converting a SS campaing to be BT-playable at least.

do the assault terminators have the big BT shields like the sword brethren? or do they still use those old small shields?

i'm sure they'd look a lot better with them.

sounds like a good update. looking forward to this mod

They have old small shields currently.
I've seen this picture before, but totally forgot about it. I'll consider this possibility in future

I sure, Rhino transport is enough for BT. But will wait for what the new 2012 BT Codex will say
