While adding Black Templars as the separate race, this mod does not change the original gameplay style of Soulstorm and compatible with others race-mods. The mod brings Emperor's Wrath upon His Enemies, the Black Templars Chapter, whose zealous space marines prefer close combat over ranged warfare.

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
