Horus Heresy - Operation Istvaan

Total Conversion Mod for DoW Soulstorm

User Posted Image

Perhaps the most brutal military operation troops traitor Horus and his followers. Operation "Istvaan" - the former is my secret project that contains a lot of content from the Awakening of Evil, but some of the same values ​​as their mod. Mod weighs about a gigabyte, and belongs to the category of a total conversion. As they say, want to see the new units and events Heresy - [b]play the mod [/ b]. Honestly, the gameplay mode is more suitable for BFME2 Rise of the Witch-King. That is a lot of magical abilities in units, a variety of units and heroes, many new effects and there are no restrictions on the wearing of additional weapons. NO Primarch and the Emperor too. If I insert them into events, it will be a terrible imbalanced, since those have a whole arsenals superpowers. Therefore limit ourselves to some of the heroes of the book series "Horus Heresy". Of the characters will be elected Andrew Ornatov (Colonel Urslavik) at Loyalist, Boas Kommenus, Zar `Kel, Aximand Horus and Abaddon. The rest of the characters a little weak. Even Nathaniel Garro not really a superhero, but as the book Flight of the Eisenstein - he's an old lame Space Marine, for attack and armor lowered. Vardus Praal in Istvaan also a hero rather weak, but it compensates for the weak hero Istvaan powerful knights and Singers War. In short, play around and see everything. In the mod of all four playable races, the campaign is not available, and the other races too.

Four Mod races:
Traitors Horus
(A bunch of disparate units of the Imperium, witches, demons, traitors Guards tehnobarbarians and fallen Space Marines, Chaos Traitors one word)

Kingdom Istvaan
(Mini-race of mod, has only one building and several units. Most interesting units is knights Fagarash and singers of the war. As for the other units, it is ordinary soldiers)

Imperial Loyalists
(United Space Marines and Imperial Guard with new units, heroes, powerful artillery and new effects)

(Watchers on the books of the Horus Heresy - are robots, once created human beings and rebellious. Here in mod its only retexturing necrons with new effects, so playing only on request)

Link to download the mod:


So far, there are some bugs with icons. Maybe in the future they will be corrected, but not now, because a lot of the work. There are some bugs with the animation, but very few of them. And the rest of you can play.

I liked this mod so far however as someone else once commented it would be nice to see the Horus Heresy as a full campaign starting with Horus's appointment as war master and following his fall as depicted in the book series. though i can see it being tricky to do cut scenes with believable voice acting and cinematic. however you might be able to get help from the animators working on the lord inquisitor project if they have time
