After a long break due to a breakdown of the original team, we are merging the Purgation of Kaurava and Firestorm over Kaurava modifications. This modification is the result of that merge and will STILL be Firestorm over Kaurava.

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!

I feel your pain. I've been putting off actually buying Soulstorm pretty much since it came out, dreading the day when this mod would eventually move away from DC :P

Just want to let you guys know that I'm more pumped for this mod coming back than any triple A budget game in the near future. Any more details on features or changes you can toss our way to tie us over until release?

I'll be doing more of these featurettes as I get to grips with the other races.

While a lot of the art may have been seen before, I am doing this to give new players a preview of the mod and an idea of how it works!

Aw man, this makes me happy in my pants :3

A few random questions, however, being a major Chaos player in FoK:

1. Will the upcoming versions include more demon options? I was kinda bummed that the only demons that were available were Daemonettes and the defaults in the original, as I love me some Furies and the rest of the Slaanesh hordes.

2. I noticed a lot more options in the recent screenshots. I'm assuming that there's gonna be some God-specifics in there, but are most of the 'generics' available no matter your chosen mark, tech tree permitting?

And finally, something that's not Chaos related:

3. GW changed the entire Dark Eldar aesthetics during the time you guys weren't working. Do you plan on, when you hit the Dark Eldar, converting them into the new aesthetics, or will they be sticking to the older designs for ease of modeling/coding? I'm more curious either way, and if it's the former, I will be both impressed and amazed at your patience.

Now if you excuse me, I got the sudden urge for a round of FoK, time to boot up Dark Crusade. :P
