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!

About [DC] Veteran Mod with 4 comments by GreenScorpion on Apr 20th, 2014

People should know by now that i am not used to remain in my corner idle when there is something i can be experimenting with. That way i always try to get some experiments done on my free time. The modding experiments represent part of those experiments. As i can't show you things like the bug hunt i've done in the last few days, here is something more visually for you.

Tired of those menus only having the commander as a personalized part, i decided to add a few things. Now Veteran Mod features a WIP customized main menu. What do you think?


Other recent developments

Renegade Champion with army banner
Instead of an approach simillar to a IG standard bearer i decided to try and give renegades some sort of greater champion carrying the standard with its trophies. Any thoughts?

Tank traps with IG building animations
Pretty much i didn't like the idea that the tank traps would be built but with no building animation. This concept tries to address that issue. I will probably have to remove the decal (doesn't feel right to me) but i am thinking of leaving the randomized IG objects in there which would justify giving some cover to areas with tank traps.

Tank traps for chaos with building animations
Simillar concept to the IG already shown but for the followers of the chaotic gods.
Tank traps (environmental object) are from DOW Kingdom mod for DC by Etherdragn.


SM and ork tank traps with building animations
Tank traps for Space Marines with building animations also.

Tau healer drone
Pretty much a tau drone with the capability of making emergency healing operations, using its medical precision laser to close any wounds that might by reducing the soldier's physical capabilities.


Waagh Walls concept
Using the walls that come in Ultimate Apocalypse and a Waagh Banner i decided to create something that could look like a wall with upgradable turrets.


Waagh Tunnel Entrance concept
Based on Rocket-Banana's comment i decided to try and create something simillar to what he suggested: a tunnel entrance system simillar to the one from GLA in C&C Generals. Any thoughts?

Now some older stuff that i would like to show:

Finnally some worse news: Life is really getting from busy to busier and so this should be the last update in a few weeks or even months. Despite of that you can be sure i will be continuing my work on this mod until it is completed. The time that it will take to be completed, i am starting to suppose will be extremely long as my focus on a good gameplay and innovation takes me to corners of DoW modding that can wield awesome results but are not always easy to navigate and so things are done slowly.
As always if you have some suggestions or comments relating to what was shown feel free to post them here.

I don't suppose anyone would be willing to kind of merge some of these mods together? Like the Tau, Tryanid and Dark Eldar mod (maybe Daemonhunters too), just one ones that add a new and above all balanced race. I have absolutely no skill what so ever to do that kind of thing, but I'm sure lots of other people would appreciate it.

Highest Rated (19 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.

Lowest Rated (2 agree) 5/10

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... :(
