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,

Any one fancy chaos legions or renegades with no daemons in the armies?

So pure Renegade Guard armies, or Chaos Marine Legion armies?

Well it is known that when a renegades dies it summons a deamon. But the idea for choosing restrict option sounds good. For hard core table top players they will love this option.

Well, how about the option to have either. New win conditions to restrict certain units from armies available.
So the choice will be there for those who want dedicated armies, or the rest who like the full lists

I'd be careful not to go overboard with restricting specific units. The wincondition options may seem a little stiff.

That, my friend, is why it's completely optional, and off my default. I wouldn't use it, but i know some people want "pure" Legions or Renegade armies, so they can. Seems to work OK.

Adeptus Mechanicus because they have like 7 units and space wolves because they are one of my favorite factions :D and if you can the tyranids because they are awful {or maybe im just bad as them}

Tyranids seem pretty good to they're made by a seperate mod team.
Regarding the chaos legions/renegade...not really, I probably prefer them as they are.
Hmmmm...just things to make them more unique's hard to think of things..i'm not so keen on the force commander type unit for each one, they seem a bit underpowered (eg. the DA one only has a bolt pistol). The Master of the Deathwing and most secondary heroes seem a bit underpowered too.
