Than go file > merge and open the files that u allready save ex.unit1

click all and than OK

Click "Select and uniform scale" and Select your model and zoom it

When you will have this click on import animation and import some animation (animation pack can be found in ...\data\animations\pack.dat ,you will need some tool to unpack)

use "select and move" ,"select and rotate" and "Select and uniform scale" to adjust your unit position ,also u can manualy move rotate unit parts with by selecting some parts of that unit.

Next click "8" and Environment and Efect screen will apear now you should select colours for tint and ambient ,i usualy set bout on 99... its personal choise

Now you are ready to render unit-info card , for that just press F9

to save unit-info card go to save bitmap (little flopydisk icon) and save in tga format.

next you need unit card -little one, press F10 and this dialog will apear

put width on 48 and height on 64 and again use "select and move" ,"select and rotate" and "Select and uniform scale" to adjust your unit position.. some parts of the unit should be adjust seperate in order to get better unit card.. and again render and save like previous

In the end your unit cards should look something like this
