Thought for the Day: Thought begets Heresy; Heresy begets Retribution.

The servants of the Imperium have not been idle of late. The greenskin "Waaagh" is growing in magnitude and becoming a major threat to the subsector. This report includes images of a convoy ambushed by a greenskin force in the desert, losses were high for the commander was unaware of greenskins in the region. Convoys moving through the desert are advised to do so with greater caution, the greenskin invasion is perhaps more significant than we had feared.

The commander, though attacked unexpectedly, still performed admirably in forming a passable firing line to meet the three Ork Killa Kans that charged the ranks.

The Imperial Guardsmen were no match for the Killa Kans in close combat, but proving the power of drawing the line, the Leman Russes cut down the Ork walkers.

The front of the column was annihilated immediately, but the Sentinels performed admirably under fire, ultimately succumbing to Ork missiles.

The second firing line was still forming when the main wave of Greenskins hit them, if not for the superior skill and training of the Kasrkin, the line would have broken much sooner.

User Posted Image
Many brave guardsmen died for the Emperor, but the vile Orks were ultimately driven back.

User Posted Image
The Orks are very fond of grenades and explosives, whilst they may be of limited effect to vehicles, en-masse they pose a threat, and to infantry the weapons are devastating.

Be vigilant in the coming green tide commanders.

I actually fixed 1 of the bugs in the final release, the gun on the Leman Russ turret wasn't moving only the turret, so I downloaded the first release, to see if the gun turned with the turret and sure enough it did, so I took those files from the first release and exchanged them with the faulty files in the newest release, and sure enough I fixed the turret gun problem. :P (feels like a modder XD)

It sure was fun working on this, but the game is just too old now, and really, the amount of time it would take to correct any issues outweigh the benefits it will have.

On the positive side, I learnt a LOT working on this, and I'll be taking what i know into new projects, as I'm sure our glorious God-Emperor Boomerang Python will :P

i agree, i would really like to see this mod completed, although the chances for that to happen are very remote. I even got 1 of the tracks of this mod on my MP, the builder music, my favorite
