UT40K: The Chosen

Although 40K players and other Mod Teams may not have heard about us, we have in fact been going on, for quite a while. The fact that a ModDB page was never set up for us has only just been brought to light.

We are a small but dedicated team, devoted to bringing the universe of Games Workshops Warhammer 40,000 to it's full glory, using the Unreal3 engine.

While we have been toiling in the shadows, we have actually managed to release a Number of Public Betas over the last year and improve on them with each upgrade.

We are devoted to remaining as close to the publish code rules as we possibly can, and plan to continue this until development is completed.

We are attempting to offer all races of the 40K universe for players to choose from, and will be implementing as many troop, weapon, vehicle and environment types as humanly possible into the game.

We are currently a very small team, but we are exceptionally dedicated.

It should be noted that with the release of the UDK, we are performing a port, of all models, textures and game play functions as quickly as possible allowing us to create a stand alone game so UT3 is no longer needed to enjoy this project.

We have setup a steam community group for fans and testers alike to make their opinions heard, and also to aid in the online aspect of testing. If you wish to join it, check here.


Instead of posting a "Help Wanted" bulletin, I will say this here. We need all the help that you can offer. We currently have a team of around 6 members all doing their part, but a lack of specialists means that progress at times can be very slow. We ask that you be committed, that you are a team player, and ideally you can provide an example (or several examples) of previous work, although this is not mandatory.


Go to our downloads section and find the latest build version. Afterwards check out the Beta Testers section of the forums to give us any feedback you think necessary for the good of the project.

Things are looking good! I am very happy you have eldar :D I was sort of disappointed that a few of the eldar models aren't complete but then I saw the beautiful falcon model and was satisfied. I am very glad you have included some rarer models like the war walker and the vyper jet bike :) I'll defintely have to have a go at this mod :)

An Eldar player at heart i see, yes i would just love to have more Eldar characters in game but i'm not that good at doing characters so they would look really crap.

Just to keep the Eldar fans happy, hopefully i'll have the Hemlock and CrimsonHunter in game with the next release though i'll have to neft the speed to stay in the map, still also unsure how to do the Hemlocks main weapon but we'll see.

In all honesty I highly prefer the night wing and pheonix bomber but the crimson hunter will be cool, now is there a way I can help with your skins? Because I cant make the skins themselves maybe I could make some sort of template for someone to run off? Eldar wise? I'll be going off my 40k eldar models if that helps, could even use my colour scheme I don't mind

that sort of thing is part of the basic modelling workflow nowadays, the guy that has done the 2 aircraft has already made some very nice textures, most of the other content is done.
I try to avoid the Forge World content they look nice but some how don't really fit in the history of W40k, plus quite often Citadel then release the same thing but with a better design, check the SM Razorback

Oh I see yeah, what specifically do you need help with? Because I am not sure how things are exactly done or what your plans are but I may have some way of being able to help.

the main thing needed atm are Eldar Character meshes plus their weapons, to be honest coding the game is a big problem which i personally can't resolve i have to rely on code borrowed or give be others.
atm i'm sticking with the UDK system but will be porting to a future engine when it become available to the public. this evolves making sure any new content will be compatible for future usage, basically triangle count and texture sizes
