Sorry, no. Not if you're running it on Steam, anyway.

@Kalingan forever.

1. We'll look at them, but the deathwatch are still being worked on so are still being improved.

2. Nope, we're not taking anything from dead mods.

3. Possibly, but probably not in the near future.

4. That's for us to know, and for you to find out ;)

5. Possibly, but Catachans ect. maybe be another race rather than a doctrine, but we're busy with other things for the time being.

Hmmmm....ok, but i'll only tell you one unit: the servitor ogryn bodyguard.

3. What DT said, but there is more drop ships available in 3.3.
4. That's code for we haven't decided yet, Same with AM to a limited degree ;), but some DP stuff is already in there!
5. DT is correct, except for what's been running through my mind recently. Depends what works really. But they are lacking a bit, all I'll say until later updates

Kaliganforever412 Jul 24 2012 replied:

3: Dropships, you say? As actual, controllable units or just something similar to drop pods (possibly with weapons) that deploy your troops?
4: And yeah, I know that there's some DP stuff in the mod already, just wasn't sure how much would be put in all told.
5: Kay, understood. They'll be updated after Adeptus Mechanicus, I would assume (since they were in second place for the vote and all that; or are you doing it differently?)

And so you say one unit has been revealed. That implies that there are multiple. Any chance at all of seeing any Legio Cybernetica stuff in there (do they even still have that in actual 40k, or was that all pre-heresy?) once they're done? Can't wait to see it.. Adeptus Mechanicus was always so cool looking.

For the Emperor!

Just similar to drop pods at moment (no weapons, balance) but allows for more flexible deployments (guard, tau, renegades).
Yes there will be more, both for AM and chaos, but how much, when it's finalised, DT will announce :)

Hum diddly dum... Well! It's a great mod, but mebbe I can make a few suggestions?

First of all, on the topic of the Deathwatch. They have the lovely pauldrons of said organisation, but didn't the Inquisition Daemonhunt mod team make up the Deathwatch veterans with embossed pauldrons and specialised bolters? If so! Do you think they would let you use them in conjunction with the current, amazing textures? (This is, I believe, a modified version of said pauldrons

Two! Are you ever going to add the good old stalwart Arbites from the Witch Hunters mod? If so, will they be inquisitorial henchmen or generally available to all Imperial factions as a cheap line unit?

Third, are you going to be adding more flier units? Thunderhawks, Valkyries, Thunderbolts, Chin-orks..? Anything like that?

Fourth, what other units are you going to be adding, might I ask? Thunderfire cannons? More titans? Possibly some of the troops from the Dark Prophesy mod (beastmen, daemon princes, ect)?

And! Are you going to be adopting any doctrine systems for the Imperial Guard like you did with the Space Marines chapters, Chaos Marine Legions, ect. Some examples might be, I dunno, Armoured, Infantry, Airborne, or maybe different regimental types if you ever make them (Krieg, Catachan, Mordian, ect). That'd be real nice to see.

And can I ask what the Adeptus Mechanicus is getting next?

I wish I knew how to mod 'n' such. Ah, well. If I could help in any way, I would, but it's still a great mod. Hope you could use some of these suggestions! ..Somehow..

the deathwatch model you are talking about has no random shoulder pads has one only and the models we are using I modified to have up to 8 or 10 chapters and I am in the process of learning how to add parts so down the road they will have what you are looking for Cheers!

and it only has that weapon loadout, no upgrades, or assault variant blah blah. They were actually in the mod in the early days, but not very workable.

*Shrug* Just wasn't sure if you could pull the silver pauldron off or something, I have no real experience in any of this so I didn't know. They still look great, though!

...And one more thing. Bomb squigs and bomb servitors - Could you tone them down, or remove them, or at least make them cost something so that the AI stops sending them at me 20 at a time?

Hope you can, 'cause it's really aggravating for my army to be completely decimated by a unit with a blast radius so wide that as soon as it's in view I'm inside of it...

I wouldn't suggest a change on the ai stop spamming these things, more or less give them a different strategy and make them blow up relatively easy in ranged and melee.
