Please read the FAQs ( before posting. Thank you. :)

New Races:

 Chaos Daemons
Chaos Renegades (The Lost and the Damned)
Grey Knights
Adeptus Mechanicus
Blood Angels
Space Wolves
Dark Angels

Expansions to the original 9 races:

Faction choices for:

Chaos Legions - 9 Original Traitor Legions and Renegades
Space Marines - Remaining 6 First Founding Legions, and 3 Second Founding Legions
Eldar - 6 most famous Craftworlds
Orks - The 6 major Clans
New units and characters for all the original races.

Installation Instructions:

1. Delete the codex folder and the code.module file in your Soulstorm directory.
2. Download both parts 1 and 2 of the Codex Base Code.
3. Extract both parts to your SS directory.
4. Download and extract Codex 3.5 to your Soulstorm directory.

5. Select “Dawn of War: Codex (3.5)” from the Game Manager.

There is a combiner module file for using in conjunction with the Tyranids (vs 0.51b) and the Black Templars (beta 5) mods included in the extracted folder,
but you will NEED these 2 great mods installed separately.

NOTE: The new races are not the same as other independently released versions, just to avoid confusion. These are the Codex versions, developed separately.

Hey everyone,

Just thought everyone deserved to know what's going on with the mod, since we've been rather quiet lately.

Unfortunately, about a month or two back, boothy had an accident, hence his inactiveness. Fortunately, he's made good recovery, and will return to work when ready. This should be relatively soon, but nothing is guaranteed.

Furthermore, deathwatch, our texturer, is having real life issues (the bane of modders). Therefore, we're unsure as to when he'll be back, but we doubt it will be any time soon.

Thanks very much of the continued suggestions (we'll get to work on them ASAP) and patience,

Sounds like you guys are working pretty hard. Can't wait for the new Grey Knights.

Now, when you say "mighty" do you mean "competent and hardworking" or "Matt Ward" ? I am so on board for the first one.

HI first off I want to thank you for this awesome mod and the work you have put in it.
I want to ask you about stats associated with models. You know, for example that slugga boyz look different from each other, but they have all the same stats. The thing I want to ask you is it possible by any means to change that so the slugga boy who has the most armor has the highest defence/hp stats etc.?

Thanks Dude :)
No mate. They are all the same entity, the look is just defined by the model, and has no relationship back to the actual stats.

Thanks for the reply.
Is this hard coded? I ask because I think this feature would add a lot to the roleplaying aspect of the game. Wanna try a game with this feature? Look up Overlord on google.

Yep dude, nothing that can be done about it. The alternate skins is good for the look, but the heroes system is probably the best you'll get for RPG elements (even though that experience is squad based)
