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.

Yes it is. a bit obvious wouldn't you say? :P

And yes, we hope to have space marines in eventually. But we're starting with the imperial guard and chaos renegades.

Hmm ... so just out of curiosity ... so will the space marines retain their actual toughness as a somewhat walking tank (perhaps a bit of over exaggeration) or will they have their stats lowered due to balancing and such?
I mean ... it would be a shame if it was so ... this means should they exist in this mod of course. :)

Sorry for the late reply. We'll try and keep Astartes as close to the lore as possible and balance them out by lowering their numbers. only if really needed we might balance them out a bit, but expect them to brush off plenty of fire and barrel through lines of enemies.

The guys when the MOD will be released? If the mod is dead then throw off the fact that there are.

Its only been a month since the last update and you assume its dead? Have some faith..

And no we don't have a release date. For anything. If you want it sooner, then as I always say, join the team and help it go faster.

Regarding balance, we will be making it as close to the canon material as possible without sacrificing too much balance between the factions.

In an hypothetical example, a renegade player should be able to take down a Space Marine using his basic infantry and proper use of special weapons.
