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!

I got this as well, tried using different races but it keeps happening. Not sure if it may be related to the win conditions but I use the same ones as I did in the DC version of FoK so I doubt its that.

I turned on the rule that lets the Ai use the Scar thing at the top of rules and I have played two matches without the problem, not sure if it completely gone though.

Onard, is the Inqusitorial and Dark eldar races available to play?
As when I load up the mod they don't show in the Army Painter or when selecting an army in skirmish.

I can confirm it has both although i haven't played with Dark Eldar so far. They are on the army painter and skirmish menu as expected, maybe something went wrong with your download?

Well I deleted all the files and re-downloaded the mod and they still not there.

Anyone offer any help?

Edit: I think there are a few other things missing for me as well such as Chaos Dreads and the Iron Warrior arty units.

Ok, so I fixed that but I now have another problem. For the SM and CSM (and maybe others, didn't check) all the colour schemes are doubled so there is two of EVERYTHING.
Anyone got an idea of how to fix this or do I just have to lump it?

Got a screenshot of your issue? Feel free to post in your image section. :)

Think I found the reason, in the races sub folders located here: "THQ\Dawn of War - Soulstorm\DoW40K_SS\Data\Art\team_colours"

For example for the double Blood Ravens colours two are called: "Blood Ravens.teamcolour" and "blood ravens_campaign.teamcolour" Whereas another two are called: "bloodravens.teamcolour" and "bloodravens_campaign.teamcolour".

Same with several other schemes, some don't have a space between the first part and second part of their names and the copy has no space or a underscore.

This issue is also reflected in the Badges folder ("THQ\Dawn of War - Soulstorm\DoW40K_SS\Data\Art\badges" and maybe the Banners folder was well. Example: "angels_sanguine_badge_2.tga" and "angels_sanguine_badge2.tga"
