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.

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.

Few questions, comrade-brother Jones: xd
Standard-bearer,Chaplain,Champion,Castellan cannot be attached to a Fire support squad. Why?

What are the statistic differences between Neophytes and their Crusader/Fire support squads Iniates "teachers"?
Since Neophytes are only 5/10 req. points cheaper.

Why the Vows has different prices?
I think that Vows could emphasis more on their unique playstyle,
instead of just few statistic changes,only to be able to get hands on Champion.
Like the four and three paths of different playstyles in Chaos deamons and Dark angels mods.
One of the Vows allows the Champion to suppress("silence") all enemy ability-casters(psykers)?
Dont remember if the Vow were "Abhor the witch" or Accept any challenge" or "Suffer not the unclean"

- Fire support squad have 6 weapon upgrade options, so there is no room for "attach/detach" button and "attached leader" icon.
- Neophytes have less health and bit worse accuracy.

- Vows are made with strict accordance to BT Codex of 4rd Edition. (Detailed description
Vows, in its essence, in any case are not comparable with the choice belonging to the Gods of Chaos or company doctrines of Dark Angels

Are the three maps above supposed to be played on the BTmod? I'm having trouble just finding the maps when I try to play, I even tried to find them on my other mods and no such luck.

No, those are regular maps and can be played with any mods. Just put them properly.
(Probably into Soulstorm\DXP2\Data\scenarios\mp\ , but check incuded readme files before)

And of course, I suggest you to try them with BT mod also ))))

There are music titles, exclusively written by Claymore M.D., and where are "other" musics... I do not want to publish the name of the artist. You can find titles within BTmod\Data\sound\music\ and next use google for searching.

What about BT mod age, the 1st beta was released exactly 01-march-2010, so it is just 4 years of running. There are Black Templars mods before me, and after me, but I have no relations to them. But anyway, thank you for support!

Every last one fan gave deserved 8+/10 at the reviews. So did I.

Now I have question:
That Thunderhawk is appearing occasionaly,providing fire support right?
But what are the occasions?
Deaths of Castellan,Chaplain,Champion,Damocles and Land raider?
Or it works differently?

Occasion: death of the one of Chapter Relic carrier (Standard-Bearer OR Emperor Champion).
So, it is not a kind of "fire support", it is more like "retribution" ;)

Theres only few things that slightly disturbs me in this otherwise amazingly,super quality mod.
First would be little bit too harsh strong german or which accent of units. xd
And the second is too big zoom, which I cannot not used to,
no matter what resolution I try.

To restore original camera, just remove setting file, placed at \BTmod\Data\camera_high.lua

Harsh strong german accent was made on purpose. Black Templars in W40K uses german archetype, german-like names, etc. So those voice actors were chosen specifically. The same, as for Crimson Fists we called on Spanish-speaking actors. More info here

Wow, thank you. A real lifesaver.
Tau has asian accent? I always thought they have some arabian or something accent. xd
Its worth to download them all just to hear those accents :D
Minor third problem is that units speeches are too often, set on too high priority
(like I read it is with Canoness chainsaw in Bugfix mod) and it sounds like they stand behind me, which frightens me to death.
Hmm, I'll try to lower speech volume next time. xd
