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,

Just thought I'd say my piece; icons, unit descriptions and unique voice sets are crucial to a professional looking mod. If several units share a voice set, a unit is missing some descriptions or it has a shoddy icon then it brings the feel of the entire mod down dramatically.
Love the mod and looking forward to the next release!

Er, yeah, totally agree dude. Working through them (icons and descriptions) slowly, er voices more tricky......
Got alot of the hard stuff done, now for the boring time-consuming 'polishing' :)

Isn't this an existing vanilla issue around DE and transports?
Anyway, fixed that, the Dais can't transport! Solved!! :)

LOL. Not 100% sure yet, but the aim is for 3.3 end of the month/early August. I'll confirm, when I'm sure we'll hit a date.

Hmm far as my opinion on the DE, I'd go with wait and go for the Ghosto! It would be nice to put them on the same level with the other armies and lets face it a fan or not their 5th edition codex has turned them into a bit of a force to recon with. Which will add to a unique opponent to fight against. I've thought about doing some coding and all for them in my mod (one of my wife's fav armies) if I actually accomplish anything worth while, I'll be more than happy to send it over to you to use.

What I'm thinking about working on. 1)like use their soul snatch ability, but they most have like 5 to 10 souls collected to gain experience like from heros. Thats about the closet thing I could think of doing to give them more like the power from pain ability they have. 2) have them more of a hit and run fighting style, since they are raiders

Sure mate. PM me with any ideas, or anything you got, and we'll see what we can do. Won't be in 3.3 release, thinking a bit further now the line...
And the 5th Edition codex is very good, and a nice base to work from :)
