Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War delivers a level of visual detail never before seen in an RTS. Hundreds of units clash on the battlefields of the dark future, unleashing massive destruction through a stunning battery of long-range weaponry before closing in for the finish. Incredible kill animations bring science fiction combat to life like never before, and the gritty future-gothic Warhammer 40,000 setting provides a striking tableau for the chaos and carnage of this grim, dark future, where there is only war!

This is an update on the progress of the Praetorian mod for Dawn of War : Soulstorm. Was it always for Soulstorm? I don't know, but now it is.

Hi!
Is there a mod that brings old balance settings for Eldars, Space Marines, Orks and Chaos from original Dawn Of War to Soulstorm?

DoWPro is probably the closest thing to this.

i got the disc during a garage sale 6-7 years ago since then been playing on/off, never tried to read any books yet, cause there's so much of it i might be lost in that universe. today it changes, as a starter and no knowledge of dawn of war, what book/comics to start?

Try books written by Dan Abnett like the series of Ghost Gaunts (guardsmen) or Eisenhorn (inquisition). I like IG based books rather than marines stories, for example Iron Guard or Baneblade are self-contained and good to read.

Later on you can try the Ciaphas Cain books. They are a rather fun release but you need to know more of the lore to smile at the jokes.

Once you are into the 40k lore you can go to the Horus Heresy books (30th millenium) to understand why 40th millenium is how it is.

Search Eranthis and you'll see some texture and sound upgrades to vanilla DoW.

Highest Rated (21 agree) 10/10

For 6 years now I have been playing Dawn of War. Modding it gave me that extra plus.

8/10 because it is a really good game. I am however ashamed that Relic stopped at Soulstorm.

10/10 because I always experienced something new in it.

10/10 100% warhammer

10/10 for Dawn of War I and Winter Assault campaign

7/10 for Dark Crusade and Soulstorm campaign

10/10 for your epic stories and hard work combined.

So much more could have been done, that was ignored during development.
Betas should of had more input.

Only saving grace is that there is a Modding community with which to complete the incomplete game... :(
