I've just submitted my first theme to the game's author. It's another Warhammer 40K Space Marines theme, but with a different colored army and a little mixing up of the unit choices (I was a huge fan of the board game "Space Hulk" and had to have Terminators in the game). While we wait for the theme proper to get added to the main page, here's a link to the image file. I didn't add any new sounds, so just whip up a theme text file and you're good to go. This was designed with the default color theme in mind ... nesat9.png

Making the sprites was easy. The really hard and time-consuming part was making all the silhouettes 1 pixel thicker than the original sprites.

Btw, if you're looking for any ideas for a new game to make, Sean, a game based on space hulk would be fantastic. It's essentially a board game version of the movie "Aliens" only with much more assertive marines. Here's an incomplete opensource version of the game:

UPDATE: I've found a free online hosting service. Here's the download link for the complete skin. Just unzip this to the "themes" folder:

This link will expire eventually, I guess. Hopefully the author will have it hosted by then

I've also fixed up the SKN file so it no longer says at the top that it's the medieval skin
