"A travesty has befallen the sacred lands of our God Emperor. The despicable Ork tides have already taken the planet Tern and are now sweeping through the entire system. These foul creatures not only threaten the millions of inhabitants but take the Forges for their own perverse means. Should the Imperial Guard faulter, we shall stand firm. My brethren, it is our duty to cleanse these Xenos in the name of the Emperor. Never forget, never forgive."

- Grand Master Uriel, briefing aboard Strike Cruiser Exheres Venia, Sanctus Sector.

As many of you can see, the 8th Legion team has been striving to complete most assests, mainly models, before the engine is even out. The attitude the team has taken to the task is a direct and serious one. We realise that it does take more than a couple of years to release a good game and there is no sense in twiddling thumbs until the dev tools comes out. However, the team is still lacking in some departments so please do not hesitate to get in contact with us if you wish to help out.

Getting into contact with us can be achieved in several ways. Either an Email or Private Message on our website's forums at 8thlegion.net, or come onto our IRC channel listed in the side panel.

Much thanks, and love, goes out to Ransico who has fixed the media section for all to view. In celebration, we're continuing to show case more high poly renders of the versatile Space Marine Drop Pod and ferocious Land Raider. I would like to point out that these high poly versions now replace the older models.

For those you do not know, the Drop Pod allows Space Marine squads to strike almost anywhere with precision. Able to bring reinforcements in a matter of minutes, the Drop Pod will be crucial for keeping the pressure on opponents.

And what cannot be said about the Land Raider? Arguably the heaviest, medium-sized tank in the known Imperium, it serves multiple roles including Anti-Vehicle, Anti-Infantry and Transportation. The only vehicle to be able to transport Terminators, the Land Raider strikes fear into all the enemies of the God-Emperor.

Check... check.

Hey all,

We have stopped development for fear of coming up with something good and having GW pull the plug unexpectedly. This comes when a fan-based movie project was asked to shut down after 2 or so years of work. The team have also decided not to make Absolution unless it is within the WH:40K realm.

We have moved on to another concept which we will develop to coincide with the MSU contest found here: Modcenter.com

Thankyou for all your interest. We may re-look at this project in the future.

Is this mod alive?
Just wanted to say those are some nice models. Are those mostly high poly models for baking in normals?
I may be interested in joining.

Hey, I could probably help out as a script/coder for this mod. I have ut3 and it would be the first time I do unreal script coding but I can learn, it shouldn't be hard at all, I am a fast learner, I do know C++ tho.
