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!

Iron Within, Iron Without!

Just a quick rammble, and tell me to shush if need be.
Have you guys thought of asking the nid mod team to "merge" with you guys, as between you lot, you could make this mod even bigger! and with ALL the major races in the 40k universe!

During every Skirmish games I've played (30+) my game crashes back to desktop every single time with the "Please submit Error Report" messege. When I run in multiplayer it runs fine.

Is anyone else having this issue, or have a solution? Or did I miss a big "DOES NOT WORK IN SKIRMISH" messege?

Thanks, and GREAT mod! Love it to death.

it's a common problem - i get it aswell - there are some erros that have yet to be ironed out - online game play with real people is very rarely affected -

you can play any race and this problem wont occur- but effected races are as follows


you can fight agaisnt/ally with every other race available - and still play as chaos orks and tau without it crashing - but when facing of agaisnt one the computers ai gets confuded easilly as it doesnt know how to cope with the new options- so expct a crash to desktop or CTD when facing such races
