0 comments by Luthorian on Sep 12th, 2013


Due to the recent wave of "Mod dead!" and "When is the release?", we decided to release a small article to explain what's going on at present with Men of the Emperor.

This is not the same mod that started in March 2011. The original team has since dispersed and went on to do their own projects or left modding altogether, as of March 2012 the team consisted of team leader ☢SRB-CausesOrange☢, mapper RaZzOR_334 and modeler Chompster with the recent arrival of Luthorian as exporter and coder. With his arrival, it was decided that all old assets from the previous team were to be discarded and the mod started all over again with a new story, new factions and using only models created by our team (which you can find in the gallery).

As such, the current Men of the Emperor: Burning Horizon officially began in March 2012, with the team members written as well as a few more that have since joined to help with other duties, sadly none of them involve texturing although there have been a few texture artists that offered their help with specific models.

We have plenty we want to show you in-game, we just refuse to show untextured models outside of renders. So once again I welcome the help of any texture artist that wishes to help us bring Warhammer 40K into Men of War. Until then we won't be able to release any content for our watchers but work will go on all the same.

So do we :)

We do plan to, but focus is on IG and renegades for now. Afterwards if we have them we'll do SM stuff.

We're focusing on our own made regiment, the 113th rifle, for now for the campaign. All other regiments aren't important for now.

We'll add some skins like the Cadian 8th and maybe some others and eventually we hope to add more unique regiments like DKoK, Tallarn, Steel legion Elysian etc. but those are really far off unless we get the required talent to join the team.

If, for whatever reason, we do end up not being able to work on the mod anymore, we'll release everything we have up to that point. Might even add assets that aren't in-game yet for people to add themselves.

but yea, we're trying our best to get something good for you guys to play with.

Mod looks amazing from screenshots! Well done!Don't care how long this mod takes to be released but long as you make it as good as I'm sure you are I'm willing to wait. Good work looks really good

I wish I backup-ed the accident test release stuff that once came up. I really liked fighting with the guardsmen but Men of War ate too much space on my harddrive.

Poor memories :/

Are you talking about that release a long time ago with the dawn of war models? As I don't recall any accidental releases since luthorian and I have taken over.

And if so, that's the "old" mod. We've completely done away with all of that and started over.
