List of Donators to this mod:

Deuce_Savage who has donated twice already, many thanks to him for his support.

Donation is not a requirement to play this mod when it comes out but it is a very appreaciated courtesy that is a clear sign of support from those that are following the mods progress. Other forms of showing support are equally welcomed.
The development of the mod is not dependant on donations, there is no one else with more desire to play the final version as the members of the team and so although it may take a while to be finished, the mod will someday be finished (unless something really bad happens, let us certainly hope not!). That said if you wish to donate to the mod team contact me through private message.

Despite some silence in August, things kept moving forward and I can proudly say that all planned units are implemented and usable by the AI.

For the most part now the tough challenge ahead is related with art/sounds with many icons still needed and lots of voice recordings needing work to be game ready.

Overall attribute coding is mostly done with just 1 or 2 missing researches and some work still being required in what relates to balance. The AI is also pretty much done except for those researches that might still be added and some minor tweaks for balance purposes.

With that said, enjoy this video of Orks fighting against the Lost Chapter in an AI vs AI battle. Swarm/mob units are the best counter against the Lost Chapter and you can see the Orks really use their mobs of infantry and significant numbers of grot tanks to destroy the Lost Chapter army.


Enjoy some screenshots of the Lost Chapter units.

hey can you make your mod less claustrophobic? i'd like to have smaller units and buildings so that my units don't always get stuck on each other. and make battles more open instead of fighting in tunnels all the time.

i was thinking why can't the space marines have ig as early units?
and could there be gue'vesa for the tau?

The units available for each race are closed and it is highly unlikely there will be any new addition.

The space marine suggestions doesn't fit the desired gameplay and would cause the mod to be "filled with redundant units and tech, casual unfriendly difficulty, overcomplicated balancing, and only for multiplayer".

I would say one of the most complex races is Lost and the Damned with some degree of redundancy but usually not too much (some units are only available when a god specific champion was recruited).
It has a bit more units and researches than the base game for the existing races but not in such high numbers as in TWM or UA.
Orks are a bit more numerous on the battlefield but keep much of their strenghts and weaknesses.
You can still play on singleplayer and lower difficulties should feel similar to any mod based on Advanced Skirmish AI (like most race mods you can play).
Obviously you will have the chance to check it out once it is out which should hopefully be before the end of the year of 2017.

It has some minor modifications, especially on the third mission.
Units added in WA and DC are also a part of the available units but overall it just tries to provide an experience similar to the one you could get in the original DoW.

It is not publicly available yet so you cannot download it.

The aim is to release the mod this year.

I'm glad to know that the mod is not dead. Just to see it makes me want to test it.

I hope good news
