The Soulstorm: Strongholds mod unlocks all seven Dark Crusade and all nine Soulstorm campaign stronghold missions, allowing them to be played directly from the skirmish menu. Compatibility is included for all vanilla and most mod races, which means that the Dark Eldar and Sisters of Battle can be used on the Dark Crusade missions, blue-on-blue match-ups are permitted, and support is included for the following mods:

  • Black Templars: Kaurava Crusade (tested with beta-5)
  • Chaos Daemons (tested with v1.6)
  • Dark Angels (tested with v2.00)
  • Harlequins - The Dance Macabre (tested with v0.15)
  • Inquisition: Daemonhunt (tested with Soulstorm beta v2.01)
  • RAGE: World Eaters Warband (tested with v1.0)
  • Renegade Guard (tested with v0.64)
  • Salamanders (tested with v1.0.01)
  • Space Wolves (tested with v0.63)
  • Steel Legion (tested with v1.0)
  • Tyranids (tested with v0.5b2)
  • Witch Hunters (Dark Crusade beta v0.2, untested - you have been warned)

Any other new race mods that are released will be added to this list. This should be a fairly easy process, as I have re-coded all the mission SCAR and NIS files to make it as simple as possible to add extra race compatibility.

The infamous Dawn of War narrator's voiceovers have been included at the start and end of each mission, although these can be skipped without affecting anything else.

As an added bonus, I have included three (sort of) new missions, entitled Mannheim Bay, the Suratha Precinct and the Lands of Eternity. They're basically conversions of existing missions from Dark Crusade and Soulstorm, using the Steel Legion and Black Templars as antagonists.

Full instructions on how to get this mod set up correctly can be found in the readme file accompanying the most recent release version (currently v1.32a), including a list of all required and optional mods with download links. I strongly advise that you check it out before you get started.

There is something in scar/winconditions, which stops squads from executing orders. Check in-game seconds from 0:30 till 0:59

I remember, I already had seen such a weird behavior before, but was not able to investigate.

I think it's the Black Templars' auto-reinforce option for Neophytes. I've just tried playing as Templars a few times and it's only done this when the rule is running. I'll make it an optional win condition rather than always-on in the next patch.

Just checked, in my (current state) BT mod wincondition, the auto-reinforceing is started after 60 seconds delay, to allow the Player to spend the initial amount of resources to his primary needs.

I don't know, I see no good reasons for that (mean: do/release the next version).

Looking forward to burn those xenos and heretic, except for honorable fight with Eldar and Tau, with my Sister Of Battle once more!
I am going to kill that Eliphas and his legion for nearly overrunning my sisters just when I have his base
