I found a really fun thing to do!
step 1: build the Inquisition Landing Pad allied structure
step 2: choose the Ordo Xeno
step 3: acquire a squad of assault marines from the landing pad.
step 4: begin reinforcing.

conclusion: enjoy having a squad with six librarians.

Hi I found a couple things which I think might be bugs:
1. Commissars attached to conscripts can't execute
2. Heavy Weapons get lascannons before autocannons

1. That's good! Commissars are understand that conscripts are just conscripts. They are future of regiment and should be well cared, not "executed"!

Conscripts are just not worth the bullet/energy spent to shoot them :P

Hey guys I'am new here and have been enjoying a ton of mods! However I've been having trouble getting the Codex mod to work. All the models for every single unit in every race that the Codex mods includes, appear as large pink boxes! I've download and extracted the all base files at once into the Soul Storm directory, and then download and extracted the patch Codex 4.0 on top of the base files as directed in the tutorial. I have tried deleting the mod, re-downloading and reinstalling it at least 5 times with nothing but pink boxes showing up each time.
What am I doing wrong here?
Is there a new version WinRAR I'am not aware of that the will extract the files with no bugs?
Is this mod not compatible with the Combiner mod or any of the race mods? (I have the Steel Legion, Chaos Daemons, Tyranids v0.5b2, Dark Angels, Space Wolves, Renegade Guardsmen, Inquisition : Daemonhunt, Salamanders, RAGE: World Eaters Warband, The Dance Macabre - Harlequins, and Black Templars betta 5)
My objective points SS is updated with the 2015_08_24 released version.
I also have Dawn Of Skirmish v3.20 SS AI Mod installed too (Used with the Combiner mod).
I use Windows 7.
Any help is greatly appreciated! I really, REALLY look forwards to playing this mod! Thanks!
