The mod aims to incorporate fluff from the novels and otcreditsher media to Dawn of War while keeping balance in mind. At the moment here are the current changes I can think of throughout the 5 or more years of modding:


* New maps.
* Reworked mass for units, that way you won't see a huge unit like a Terminator flying due to a grenade.
* Reworked FX for some units (Blood Colour, etc.)
* Implemented Wargear System.
* Implemented New Army Painter System showing almost all units.
* Tons of graphical fixes (textures, fx, etc.)
* New units of course.
* New races: Tyranids and Renegade Guard
* Merged races: Races from other mods merged with existing races. (Example: Black Templars and Grey Knights merged with Space Marines, Sisters of Battle merged with Witch Hunters)

Major Race Advantages aside from tons of new units:
Imperial Guard:

*Defensive Fortifications - The HQ and Infantry Command gain significant bonuses when fully garrisoned.
*Hold the Line - Infantry near buildings gain a defensive bonus to ranged and morale damage.
*Artillery Superiority - Basilisks now use the Earthshaker round as its main weapon after Full Scale War. Two new artillery abilities added.
*Doctrines - You can now choose between two regiments. One is focussed on Mechanized combat while the other is on Infantry combat. Different Infantry models are utilized for choosing a certain regiment.


*Dexterity - Infantry units near enemy troops lower their accuracy. Accuracy lowered depends on three factors: Basic Accuracy Loss, Elite Accuracy Loss, Commander Accuracy Loss. (Example: Guardians (Basic) engaged in close quarters will lower enemy accuracy but Banshees (Elite) will further lower their accuracy. Commander units will greatly lower the accuracy.
*Stealth - Eldar now have researches that allow infantry and vehicle units to infiltrate while not attacking enemies while near a Webway Gate.
*Enhanced Webway - Vehicle units can now use the Webway Gate to be transported across the map.
*From the Craftworld - Eldar squads come out fully reinforced but Eldar buildings are limited and reinforcing squads are more expensive.


*Marks of Chaos - You can choose between the 5 Marks of Chaos as well as 4 Traitor Legions. Each Mark has a different specialization so choose wisely.

Space Marines:

*Doctrines - You can choose between 4 different Doctrines: Codex Astartes, Legiones Astartes, Daemonhunters and Templar Crusaders.

Dark Eldar:

*Dexterity - (Same as Eldar)


*Mass Resurrection - Necron units can be revived across the entire map when the Necron Lord uses his ability. Necrons no longer revive by themselves (unknown bug that manifested over the years causes it to crash if enabled)
*Necrodermis - Necrons are now properly represented by their ability to repair themselves at an alarming rate.


*Teleportas - When a research is complete almost the entire ork infantry army can teleport across short distances.
*Bred for War - Orks heal at an alarming rate. Orks regain more health in melee combat.

Sisters of Battle:

How will you make the renegades? Will you make them like Vraks Renegade Milita with tons of heavy equipment or a random Revolution with mutant rabbles, angry workers and traitor guard elements?
