Yes, for both. However, if playing multiplayer, the other player(s) have to be running exactly the same version of the mod.

I died of laughter when I saw Slaanesh's unbalanced Ponies tear up everything I had as the Grey Knights. I died of laughter even harder when my Throne of Judgement went up against a Brass Scorpion, got executed by the Brass Scorpion in a fashion so funny, that I couldn't help but laugh for the rest of the game and proceed to lose XD

The throne's default animation and pose were on his execution while the brass Scorpion proceeded to fling it around with one claw like its nothing and throw it half way across the map XD

First, download the 3 parts if the mod:
Part 1
Part 2
Part 3:

Then, extract all three, at the same time, into your Soulstorm directory.

Finally, download the 3.2 update:
and extract it to your Soulstorm directory. Click 'Yes' if asked if you want to replace/merge any folders/files.

If you want, you can also add the Black Templars and Tyranids by following the tutorial here:

Black Templars mod:

BT mod patch:

Tyranid mod:

Hope this helps.

NOTE: Please read through the install instructions for Black Templars and Tyranids incase any extra downloads are required. If there is and you have troubles, just PM me.
