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!

Firstly there is an updated installation tutorial for anyone who has been having difficulty getting started with the mod:

Secondly, there are two gameplay videos, showing a Grey Knights raid into the Thur'Abis Catacombs and a Vostroyan Firstborn assault on the Dussala Precinct:

This is in addition to all the older Strongholds videos on his channel. Although they were created using out-of-date versions of the mod, many are still well worth a look. The full playlist can be found here:


Of course he also has videos of vanilla Dawn of War, other mods like Ultimate Apocalypse, plus a host of other games. Check them out here:

Figured I'd ask around if anyone is experienced with Dow1 modeling. My project is in need of some model editing and I'd like to rely on someone who can import a working session of a model for me to do uv and texture work. It will help break some limitations.

The first we need to ask: Are you good in 3d-modeling? In animating?

Start with Corsix Mod Studio. It supports all DOW 1 games, and is quite easy.

Hi everyone, I've created a new subreddit, it is dedicated to Dawn of War 'One' and its expansions.

https://www.reddit.com/r/DawnofWarOne/

For those who wish to focus on DoW 1 and not other DoW title(s).

Is there a mod that expands the base races that I can use with unification? I asssume that UA and Titanium won't work, so any other besides those?

Highest Rated (23 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.
