Description

I feel that DoW II strays too far away from what it needs to represent. I am an ex-tabletop player, and a pretty big fan of WH40k. I feel they have left out or incorrectly used so much of the content in DoW II that I don’t feel like it accurately represents the franchise in the way it should. What I hope to do is bring many of the inconsistencies (where possible) closer to the tabletop, while keeping the current balance of the game as intact as possible.

Tabletop Mod.
A multiplayer modification.

Purpose of this mod:
I feel that DoW II strays too far away from what it needs to represent. I am an ex-tabletop player, and a pretty big fan of WH40k. I feel they have left out or incorrectly used so much of the content in DoW II that I don’t feel like it accurately represents the franchise in the way it should.

What I hope to do is bring many of the inconsistencies (where possible) closer to the tabletop, while keeping the current balance of the game as intact as possible.

Does this make the game turn-based?

No. What it does do is change squad sizes, upgrades, etc.
I wanted to add the change log to the description, but there wasn't room.
There is a change log (.txt) and a more detailed change log (.doc) in the download.

I really like this mod, especially for Orks and Tyranids. There's nothing quite like the 10 man Boy squads and the 12 man hormagaunt squads.
I hope you make further versions of this because in many ways it's better then the original squad limits.

I'll certainly be updating it on a regular basis.
There's alot more content I want to add, but I need to figure out 'how' to implement some if it, if its possible at all.

I'm also looking for feedback & suggestions on what I've done already. I intend to do regular balance changes every week as needed.

Unfortunately Relic have made it impossible to add new models into the game, so this can not be done. :(

just played this mod and ive really enjoyed it, i do have a few issues with it though i find that sometimes the computer will somehow get stuck together and more and more units will add to it so that there is a huge mass of troops hanging around in the corner. happens most in argus map! other than that its a great mod, keep up the good work!

The AI tends to play retarded on easy or normal difficulty.
Play the AI on Expert, and they are worth playing against (for the most part).

Still... join the STEAM group and play against other players. That's what its made for. ;)

Someone else had a similar problem.
I don't think the .rar resaved as a .zip properly.
I've reuploaded a fixed .zip file, in the mean time, feel free to check the thread on Relic News, as I uploaded it to another location.

Hi, i was rather dissapointed with this mod, although the upgrades are fine and all thatr, there is, on most buttons, the words '$90475 no range' or something like that, this also shows up on my normal dawn of war 2 game, so it obscures upgrades etc. so i cant tell what they do
