First of all, what is the 'Codex mod'?
Codex mod is a modification for the Real Time Strategy game 'Dawn of War: Soulstorm'. Pretty much, it adds a vast amount of new units, upgrades and features to the game, for example the 'allies' win condition, which enables you to, depending on your selected army, to select an ally to help you on the battlefield. You will then be able to purchase a selection of units from that race.
Furthermore, we have introduce certain legions for the original Dawn of War of the races (Chaos, Space Marines, Eldar and Orks). A legion is selected, and you can then build special units depending on the legion chosen, such as a Librarian squad if you chose Blood Ravens as Space Marines.
Why is Codex mod different to other mods which expand the game?
We believe that we have a quality not reached by many other mods, for example some our Grey Knight textures (thanks to deathwatch78). In addition, our special features offer a type of play style which no other Dawn of War mod can match.
Are there any new armies?
Indeed there are. These include:
Chaos Renegades (The Lost and the Damned)
