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 organized voice scripting and recording process for the entire Warhammer 40k modding community. Follow his work on Revora!
Claymore MD made the stylish trailer for this mod, and also he granted us permission to use some of his music tracks.


This mod requires 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.

Do you plan on ever adding characters such as Chaplain Grimaldus or High Marshall Helbrecht? I really like both characters and I particularly think Helbrecht could be a cool character to add

Indeed, both are cool, but say frankly, I'm against of using Named Characters in skirmishes/regular battles. That is my opinion.
Additionally, for the game, they both needs a super-cool authentic 3dmodels, which I'm not able to make.

Trust in the Emperor at the hour of battle.
Trust to him to intercede, and protect his warriors true as they deal death on alien soil.
Turn their seas to red with the blood of their slain.
Crush their hopes, their dreams
And turn their songs into cries of lamentation."
- "Uphold the honour of the Emperor", vow of the Black Templars

The Achilles-Alpha Pattern Land Raider was the first prototype of the Land Raider Achilles, more powerful and durable than any tank of their class yet created.

This variant was constructed using specially Enhanced Ferromantic Rites, so the hull is able to resist even the most determined assault and is almost preternaturally resilient.

It is armed with one hull-mounted Quad Mortar with frag and shatter shells and two sponson-mounted twin-linked Volkite Culverins.

Howdy there, Captain brother-comrade, how are the Schwarze Marinesoldaten Kapitel doing?
Thank you for newest Objective Points or maybe OP means "overpowered" mod? xd
(I love abbreviations)
Thank you for the new FAQ and tutorials.
I just dont have any idea what "EC" means?
(I really love abbreviations)
And thank you for what you said to Kasrkin, though I wonder what exactly could "changing BT squads blueprints names of some non-corresponding to better fill their role", mean..
Aaanyway as always, good luck. We look forward for some day to BT Beta
(I really really love abbreviations) 6 or 7 or whatever newest version number to come out.
