This is the first public beta of The Dance Macabre: Harlequins modification for Soulstorm 1.20.

This mod has a long history, starting right back with winter assault. The mod was left abandoned and the assets public released, however it was then revived by a new team who have taken it further towards completion.

Our team is currently very small, consisting of Undirector and fuggles working on the code and with two testers. Where we can we are beg/stealing/borrowing 3d help and Jones1979 kindly helped out on more than one occasion but we lack any dedicated 3D/OE/FX support, which sadly will hold the mod back from being a completely polished. The known issues on this front are small, but sadly currently unfixable. In fact, one of the key reasons for the release of this build is that the current team feel they have pretty much taken the mod as far as they can and so please consider this both a fully playable race mod and a cry for assistance!

We were unable to get completed voice acting ready in time for our initial release date and now this has been pushed back by another 2 weeks, so rather than sitting and doing nothing, we thought we would let you play.

We hope you enjoy this modification as a lot of hard work has gone into it - Let us know what you think and then look out for version 2!

The Dance Macabre Modification adds the Harlequins as a new playable race to your Dawn of War: Soulstorm 1.20 game. The Harlequins are a mysterious faction...

I don't want to spam, however there is in the same mod category for dawn of war a second mod for harlequins called the 'Arlequins mod'(french) Maybe you can exchange each other's work as they have for example an updated death jester model and the rapid flyer venom etc etc just some advice for the first patch or something :)

The mod is really nice, a few placeholders and textures here and there but they feel really new and fresh. However, I can't build plasma generators as there is no build icon for them. I can build a thermo plasma generator but no power gain as there is no icon. Really liking it so far. :) (please help)

I have to say Kudos, you've completely changed my opinion of the Harlequins. Always enjoyed the idea of them and all, but even just as a Public Beta this was stunning in every way. Did have to shut my eyes once or twice with those bright colors but that brought a touch of '40k realism' to it for me.

Are these supposed to be whacked out Eldars in killer clowns fashion? These aliens have an impressive array of everything!

not clowns... masquerade. Its more crazy version than clowns, it draws inspiration from jester outfits (clowns are more of a tame modern day version designed for children)
