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.

Hi everyone,

It's been a long time since any news was released, and there has been a good reason for that: frankly, there has not been any.

However, I can now reveal that work has been resumed, although at a slow pace. Deathwatch78 has generously found time in his busy schedule to give some time to modding, and will therefore be working on new eye candy for the next version. This also means anything which did not make it into 3.5 will be in the next version. On the other hand, the gameplay element is still on hold due to the absence of boothy_p.

Thank you for your support and patience,

re-download I'm afraid mate. The meshes are fine, but occasional downloads get them screwed for some reason.

I love the attention given to several of the Space Marine chapters,however, I was wondering if you would ever consider doing the same for Chaos Legions.. Perhaps the Iron Warriors??

Or how about the Soul Drinkers, Sarpedon, with his eight legs??

there is some in there already for chaos legions mate, although the most effort is on the cult legions at the moment, and the undivided ones need more love. Got alot of ideas, but also waiting for the new Chaos Codex in month or so for inspiration :)

When playing Dark Angels Race (possibly Space Marines), after you build Machine Cult there is a thin black line whenever it is onscreen that goes from the building to the bottom HUD. Might be a bug.

It is a DOW engine similar bug that happens with all buildings. Not mod related in any mod; shadows glitched in vanilla DOW, yet Relic cares less to fix like aircraft, lag, etc...

Exactly, it's exacerbated by the high camera as well.

No actually, the camera's fine, you just gotta know how to use it. ;)
