The newest (February 2012) Beta-4 mod build public release is uploaded.

The Beta-4 is focused on the race more smooth tier 1 start. Of course, numerous other balance fixes, models updates, bugs eliminations are in-place:


- New (lightweight) Tarantula Senty Gun will replace Heavy Bolter Turret emplacement
- Castellan passive ability to return control over R-Zealed Crusaders finally works as expected.
- Skull Probe is a "flyer" now
- Skull Probe invisibility research restored.
- Emperor Champion resurrection health percentage reduced.
- Emperor Champion "Abhor the Witch" vow's ability now properly restores Psyker's abilities, when they came out of EC's AoE range

- Squad CAP "increasing" redefined.

- Some weapons stats (incl. Land Speeder Typhoon Missiles) revised (more damage against low vehicles and aircrafts).
- Heavy Bolter and Missile Launcher weapon's options for the Command Squad.

- New mod feature: Techmarines can slow repair Rhinos and Landraider while embarked.
- Damocles Command Vehicle bring new bonuses to its owner, so its req. cost increased also.

other minor fixes:

- Small AE-code and OE-code enchances/fixes for Sword Brethren Squad
- Standard Bearer's candles fire vertically on most actions Posted Image
- Initiate's model cloth part properly smoothed (not a Melooo's omission, just was a result of my own inaccuracy)

Nothing can be "final" in modding ;) We need converting a SS campaing to be BT-playable at least.

do the assault terminators have the big BT shields like the sword brethren? or do they still use those old small shields?

i'm sure they'd look a lot better with them. Forgeworld.co.uk

sounds like a good update. looking forward to this mod

They have old small shields currently.
I've seen this picture before, but totally forgot about it. I'll consider this possibility in future

I sure, Rhino transport is enough for BT. But will wait for what the new 2012 BT Codex will say
