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!

You can now download some 30k weapon models for your mods.
They´re all delivered in .3ds (Max8) and .obj format with .dds textures (the backpack has a team-colorable .wtp file as well).
Both models and textures are meant for the old Soulstorm, so they are between 300-600 polygons and 256x256 - 512x512 textures.


modelling skills

  • 3dsMax 8 or higher (or anything able to import .obj files)
  • some basic modelling skills (how to move/rescale the objects; merge it with imported troop models; unhide hidden high-poly models if needed; make a skin for culverin´s ammo belt etc.)

texturing skills

  • basically none, just how to make a .rsh from .dds (and/or how to flip it in photoshop)
  • none of the weapons have a .wtp (team-colouring) texture. if you want to make them team-colourable, then send me a PM and I will send you respective .psd file, which makes creating such a texture easier.

modding skills

  • OE, texture tool and all that stuff you need to know if you want to code these new weapons into your mod. someone already made a FX for volkites so with luck you don´t have to make a completely new one...


  • non-commercial - free to use, but NO re-uploads and credit me! letting me know that they will be featured in your mod won´t hurt either. ;)
  • commercial - send me a PM! if I don´t respond within a month, see "non-commercial rules"

Toolstyle Jan 20 2006 says:

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 (20 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 (3 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... :(
