This is a total conversion mod in order to adapt Dawn of War 2 to Space Hulk, the board game developped by Games Workshop.
What is a Space Hulk ?
A Space Hulk is for any masses of ancient, derelict starships, asteroids, and other assorted space junk drifting in and out of the Warp that eventually merges into one massive form, ranging from the size of a small moon to a large planet, which drift through the territory of the Imperium. Because a hulk may contain bits of lost information or technology, or hostile life forms that pose a threat to mankind, the Imperium often sends teams to search for and secure these entities. The hulk may not stay in real space for very long, eventually slipping back into the Warp, so retrieval operations must be rapid and efficient.
The Space Marines are the perfects warriors for cleanse the Hulk, and among them, the Blood Angels are the best.
How to play ?
This mod /!\ is not /!\ a campaign mod.
So create a multiplayer game.
Two types of winconditions, with different gameplays are added:
Space Hulk Reloaded is a remake of the board game.
It's a TPS-like where you control a Terminator in a squad of 5 Terminators (so up to 5 humans can play in coop).
At the start you choose your weapons, then the game begin and you move with the keys or right-clic, and aim with the mouse.
As it's a remake, you'll meet some heretics, orks, tyranids, deamons...
Maps are original, with their own objectives.
In practice, you'll need to select "Space Hulk Reloaded" wincondition, select a Space Hulk map, invite your friends if you want...
If you take the slot 1, you'll be a Terminator Sergeant, very effective in hand-to-hand, and you'll choose between a Thunder Hammer and Storm Shield, lightning claws, or power sword.
If you take slot 2, you'll be a heavy weapon carrier, with an assault cannon, an heavy flamer or a cyclone missile launcher.
Else, you'll be a normal Terminator, a good choice, because he can heal you, instant-reload your weapons, make you invulnerable if the number of ennemies is to high...
Example of gameplay:
The goal of this way of playing is to adapt the original board game to the gameplay of Dawn of War 2.
With Original Space Hulk, you'll revive the campaign of the Sin of Damnation througough the twelve orignal missions.
You'll also control the original Terminators:
Lorenzo Deino Zael Goriel Valencio
Giddeon Noctis Omnio Scipio Leon
So, the player in slot 1 is the terminator player, and the other the genestealer player.The mission start by a little briefing and the history of the mission, then when both players are ready the game start.
It's a nervous and fast gameplay, because the genestealer player can see all the map whereas the Terminator player has just a radar...
Example of gameplay:
After six months, a new version is released. I've been working such a long time in order to bring you this new update, but the result is here: Space Hulk Mod 1.3.1. So, what's new ?
