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.

Melooo/yooo has been very generous in allowing the two modifications to merge and baz4431 has been heading the recent team reorganisation!

Expect more news as we progress; a Soulstorm version of the modification isn't that long away!

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!

I love the mod - it's undoubtedly the best way to play Dawn of War.

That said, I have some questions about the Imperial Guard's infantry units.

As far as I knew (and I could be wrong, I haven't been 100% keeping up with the Guard - (Astra Militarum?) - recently, but I thought that standard Guardsman Infantry Squads could only have one special weapon, and veterans could have three.

What happens in the mod is that Rifle Squads (who I assume are basic guardsmen) and Veterans can both have four special weapons a squad, but only two of any type.

Also, what's the logic behind calling Guardsmen Infantry 'Rifle Squads'? In the codex, they're called Guardsmen Infantry as far as I know. I think Guardsmen Infantry were the basic, Guardsmen Veterans were the improved ones that took one troop choice to take each instead of fitting into a platoon, and Grenadiers were the veterans with carapace armor - I can't remember, but I'm pretty sure that there were two other kinds of veterans. One was stealthy, and the other were demolitions.

Not only that, heavy weapons squads seem to have four teams, but in the codex, they had three.

Finally, are 'Mech guard veterans' supposed to be Armored Fist squads from back in 4th edition?

Just though I'd bring that to your attention, but otherwise, I absolutely LOVE this mod. Fantastic work - it makes Dawn of War into what it should have been all along - a faithful recreation of 40k in real time. Wonderful, wonderful, wonderful, etc.

Rifleman squads were an experiment in deviation of the codex since a single special weapon and a single heavy weapon in a guardsmen squad aren't very synergetic.

Following on the above, heavy weapon squads got 4 teams to make up for the fact the basic IG squad could no longer take an heavy weapon themselves.

There is a veteran guardsman squad with stealth already, also packing snare grenades. Both them and the grenadiers with carapace armor get the demolition charge and melta bombs since they cost resources to activate. The devs decided it wouldn't be worth it to have a third veteran squad for that.

Mech guard veterans are simply grenadiers that can be taken in platoons if you take the armored infantry doctrine, which is still in development. Like the tank doctrine unlocks the top tanks and infantry doctrine unlocks the more exotic infantries like conspricts and ogryns.

Thanks for the critique!

Quick question for those who play the Inquisition race. Might be me but i've noticed they seem to take damage from their own turrets and listening posts. Anyone had this when playing the Inquisition?

Regardless, solid mod and i look forward to seeing what else it has in store.

Never mind. You need to build generators in order for them to work, which is pretty realistic :P

I'll say it again, best mod for DOW, better than UA!

This mechanic was removed in the latest closed beta. It confused too many players.
