Today's news feature is bringing people up to speed on the Forces of Chaos in DoW40k: Firestorm over Kaurava!
The artwork, and a lot of the code behind it, comes directly from Melooo's efforts while involved with FoK and his own mod; Purgation of Kaurava. Squads gain visual upgrades as you unlock specific researches! What you see is here an Iron Warriors-themed force with not a lot of research unlocked!
Later on in the game, I chose the a siege-based Trait (Iron Warriors in all but name) over the Zealous Trait and my Chaos Lord and Chaos Marines changed to something more . . . Iron :) Conversely, the Zealous upgrade takes your Undivided force more in the direction of the Word Bearers . . . in all but name.
This allows you to create your own custom Chapters and warbands, but still get the great gameplay of the Traitor Legions of Chaos!
The current internal build is quite polished; Mirage Knight is doing excellent work behind the scenes. Our aim is to get it as refined as we can through internal testing, as the game mechanics aren't solid yet.
Check out our Images gallery for some previews! More screenshots to come when I get time!
Iron Within, Iron Without!
