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,

Hey guys, just want to clarify some stuff regarding the closed thread.

The thread is ONLY closed due to the bloodletter models using dow2 assets, which have now been replaced. Except for possible the servitor, NO assets have been taken from mods without permission. We even had permission for the bloodletters, it was the Dark Prophecy mod which took them from dow2, Boothy DID NOT know they were illegal at the time and got them from DP.

I have been talking to Heretic (the admin who closed the thread), and the thread should be open soon (at latest Saturday). It was him who removed the links (since they linked to the version using bloodletters).

Because there were using assets from mods they didn´t even had permition to use (and didn´t even gave credit to mods like IDH mod oh nice) and using imported DoW2 models which are considered (good looking but) illegal.

Question is what Codex team will do: Will they remove any problematic stuff (or require base installation of used mods they don´t have permition to use alone) OR simply ignore this and go even more further like some mods here on moddb as well (and maybe find some site which will host their forum aside here on moddb).

oh, questions questions. Well, I'm going to remove the true problematic stuff (3.2 release), ie bloodletters. Honestly, when I put them in, I didn't realise, just thought, oh, they look cool.
But that's the main problem, so fine. fix that. I think I might have used a servitor from IDH. I'll credit that. Opps.
After that, sod it. I knew there was a reason there was no forum before..............

Shodar87 Jun 25 2012, 2:37pm replied:

I fear that it will be not good enough to just remove DoW2 BL. Compiler as Leader of IDH mod last time said that if you want to use his mod or some part of it, you need to have his permition to use them (but it´s still possible to get) and/or use his latest mod as requirement to run your final mod.

Anyway good luck.
Second thing and this time probably far worse is that you are using WH models which only few teams are allowed to use. Getting official permition from WH team is nearly impossible since they aren´t active anymore.

Reason why I´m writing it is to make it clearer why imo RelicNews mod locked your thread with your mod (since all they did was locked thread and removed download link -.-), and what do you have to do to make it open (unless theres more things like this). If you will strip it down or not it´s up to you but I´m sure that you´ve noticed that every mod here on moddb using WH models without permition from team or DoW2 ported models doesn´t have thread on RN.

Thank you. It's locked because if DoW2 content which will be removed.

Shodar87 Jun 25 2012, 3:04pm replied:

DoW2 content was pointed out, WH content wasn´t yet. Just ask RN mods about WH models if you can use them in your mod while giving them credit. Few years ago there was a mod which did quite similar changes like yours just had a less races and was terribly coded/balanced etc and of course it got locked.

For example

Shodar87 is 100% correct, and it will be unbelievably beautiful to be at risk free. Take our advice. ;)
