This mod brings the Black Templars Fighting Company to DoW:Soulstorm game.
Black Templars are zealous marines that prefer close combat over ranged warfare.
Being added BT as the separate race, this mod does not change the original gameplay of Soulstorm.

Mod team:

Me, aka jONES1979 (AE- ,OE-, AI-coding, voices post-processing)
Skinnie (AE-coding, FX-es)
Melooo (3D models, AE-, OE-coding)
Claymore MD (music, video)
Shodar (testing)


The mod based on models made by Melooo, and also reused his gameplay ideas about how to implement Black Templar's 'close to codex' style.
Also this mod utilize some other FOK/POK assets, like updated sound effects and FX-es. THANK YOU, FOK team, you are Best among DoW1 modders.
This mod would not exist without helps of Skinnie.
Glorious Thudmeiser, who organised voices scripting and recording process for the entire Warhammer 40k modding community. You can follow him on Revora.
Claymore MD made a stylish trailer for this mod, and also He granted us permission to use some of his music tracks.


This mod required DoW SS Advanced AI ver 3.2 mod to play!
This mod is for DoW:Soulstorm only. Tested on both CD/DVD and Steam versions.

The main conceptual change of upcoming BTmod beta-6 is:

- NO MORE PERSONAL TELEPORTERS for Terminators squad.

(Let's return to W40K fluff from relic's DoW non-backgound ideas)

jONES I thought terminator's had personal teleporters in fluff? In the HH books their teleporting all over the place...although it was always from orbit. Maybe thats what you mean?

Yes, that is not personal teleporters, but "deepstrike" teleportation by ship's huge teleportation device, navigating by special devices or by huge pre-calculations.

If not to mention very few rare arecheotec devices, in fluff, only Grey Knights utilizes real *personal* teleporters commonly.

Yes, Heroes WINCONDITION will be supported, but I don't sure about how "soon".
Mr. Fuggles did all the job, but time of next release is unpredictable.
