My second map set in Svarog Sector. Its 4vs4 map, and although big, it can be quite fast. I suggest you use troop transports asap, but you can play without...

Hi EVERYONE..I love this Mod but I would like to share a suggestion to the artist and moders that did this marvelous piece of art and entertainment.Please if you guys keep enhancing this mod, I think it will be nice if you can work on the scale for all other races as you did with the Templars and it will be nice if you can adapt the Templars dreadnoughts to the other Space Marines race or adapt the ones from fire storm over Kronus to the mod , so The Land Riders and The Predators. Anyway as I say before you guys did an Amazing and outstanding job with this mod. The Music is also beautiful and perfect. Keep it up and keep them coming ! May the Emperor Bless the soul of all the creators of this mod. Thanks a lot guys !

As I remember, I had carefully adapt sizes of all vehicles, dreadnoughts, speeders for all vanilla races long ago. And also did it for Inquisition and Dark Angels mod races.

Yes you right..I was inspecting the other Units ..but not the Templars..those are perfect ! ..and yes I notice the scaling ... the Land Rider is bigger so the dreadnoughts and many other units... but it will be real cool if you can add to it the Land Rider with the Marine machine gunner on top for all Marine for the Chaos and all others races ...but matter what..your mod is a Pure art...I am very impress with the music during game so Epic... so The army is the most good looking army painter I have look so should be working for Relic...for real ! I am a graphic designer with plenty of experience working for an advertising company down here in the Island of Puerto Rico...and I know what is good quality and what is mediocre...and you my friend are a pro as a 3d designer...the details of those Templars are outstanding you did excellent ...KEEP IT UP AND KEEP IT COMING !and Thanks for sharing with all of US such an amazing creation ! God BLESS YOU BRO ! and THANKS a LOT !

Thanks for reply and good words, Charlie Chill!
But I should note, that most used models are from FoK/PoK mod and was made by Meloo and HorusHeretic textured by Fleshp0int and Buz. We are big community here, who became a contributors for BT mod.

I was playing this mod the whole weekend and I have became addicted to your Black Templars. I played for almost 24 Hours and was no able to stop but to go to the bathroom and ordering a Pizza. This Mod is very well done. The Texture of the black templar models and all the details on them are Outstanding, so the game play , so the introduction movie and the new background display for the army painter. The installation was very simple too. I have play all the others mod out there and this one next to Firestorm over Kronus for dark crusade and the Kourava one for Soul Storm have become my Favorite mods so far. What I love about this mod is that it let you play all the skirmish battles as a Black Templar with the original game engine of Soul Storm and bring a lot of life to the original Dawn of war game. The voices of the character with the Germanic accent are great so the new special effects for all the explosions and weapons .Your mod look very professional to me. This mod IS A MASTERPIECE ! please keep me inform if you make a new one or if you bring new updates to this mod. May the Mighty God Emperor Bless the souls of the Makers of this mod forever ! Keep it up and Keep them coming !
