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.

Hey everyone,

Just thought everyone deserved to know what's going on with the mod, since we've been rather quiet lately.

Unfortunately, about a month or two back, boothy had an accident, hence his inactiveness. Fortunately, he's made good recovery, and will return to work when ready. This should be relatively soon, but nothing is guaranteed.

Furthermore, deathwatch, our texturer, is having real life issues (the bane of modders). Therefore, we're unsure as to when he'll be back, but we doubt it will be any time soon.

Thanks very much of the continued suggestions (we'll get to work on them ASAP) and patience,

Afer testing I have 2 bugs to report and a few suggestions:

A bunch of pink icons and units always freeze when using doombolt ability.

I would suggest to add the rest of the which hunter models and replace the vanilla sisters; Replace the Gray knights buildings with the ones from the Demon Hunters and Which Hunters mod and add the units from the Demon Hunters mod; To replace the old custom stompa with the new and add the bomb squig ability to the tank bustas.

Hope I helped. :)

And just wanted to ask what are the future plans for this very awesome mod? :)

ok, for the icons, I'd just need to know where? There's a section in the forums tab for bugs, so that would be cool there.

Future plans, er dunno yet, near future, just improving and tidying up the races already in, maybe new units, new tech gameplay things....

I'm not going to be taking building and units out of DH or WH I'm afraid. DH is an active soulstorm mod, and the knights where done to match current codex, and not really infringe on what the DH mod had tried to do.
Er, lets keep away from the whole Witch Hunters bit, and replacing sisters with them. Lots of reasons why not on that.
Thanks dude,

This mod is the best and my favourite. Mr Boothy_p, what do you think about another version of this mod with new regiments of Imperial Guard?

From what i've heard he's staying with the races that are in at the moment; a new imperial guard regiment would require much work, plus, except for Catachans, they're all relitivally similar to either Steel Legion (which you can download and add) or Cadians.
