so I've been playing vassal 40k for a while now. But with the new tyranid codex out I've noticed that there are a lot of new units that i won't be able to field.
i don't think that there is going to be a update because i don't think its possible to download anymore.
so i look upon you guys, do any of you know a place to get new pictures of units or how to make my own. (i know how to add new units just not the picture that is used to represent them)

Vassal got a C&D from GW.

This pretty much killed it.

You will have to make the sprites yourself or find someone out there who is, here's a quick rundown (http://www.thepainteddragon.co.uk/forum/index.php?topic=1400.0http://www.thepainteddragon.co.uk/forum/index.php?topic=1400.0) or demo (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=728AgOlKMcI&feature=related). Used to be a few people involved with Vassal over at librarium-online.com, haven't looked into it for awhile though so not sure what's going on anymore.

It's a program that allows you to play through the internet with other opponents. Multiple "modules" or game mods would be loaded and could be played. The 40k vassal mod would allow you to "see" a 6x4 board and some buildings on a 2d surface which would allow you to move your units (2d sprites) and do other things such as measurements and dice rolling. All in all it was another way to play 40k, but without the actual need of models, buildings, board, etc...
