I want to create new unit sprites for the Warhammer 40K Armageddon pc game.
Game uses simple 3D static PNG sprites facing 6 different direction for all units. They don't animate in game, just pictures (as shown in link).
If I simply copy already-made sprites and just rename them with my own liking, I can integrate to game easily (with adding strings, sound and animation files etc.). But I want to create my own unique sprites. I know this can be done because other people already did this (I of course tried to contact them through game forums and steam at first but couldn't succeeded, so I wanted to ask here).
How can I make these sprites?
P.S. I don't have any kind of modelling experience, but I'm a coder.
