Movie Marines - bringing you a fluffier Marine.
Movie Marines aims to convert Space Marines and Chaos Space Marines to their god-like fluffy counterparts, whilst still remaining balanced. To do this, all squads (Except Scouts & Cultists) have been reduced to 1 man. Heavy Weapon Marines have been made into their own squads. Vehicles have been all but removed. Commanders have been turned into one-man armies, taking up a large amount of squad and support cap, and capable of taking down Relic units with little to no assistance. And almost every thing has had it's damage, health & morale increases by anything from 200% to 1000%.
Of course 15 is the most Marines you're going to get in one team. And when outnumbered 10-1 even the mightiest of giants will fall.
Single Player Chaos Lord seems to have borrowed the Tau Commander's texture.
Computer doesn't use new units.
Marine & Chaos squad cap is now 30 max, and 8 support cap. To prevent rushing with these impossibly 'ard gitz, researches to increase Squad cap require higher tech levels.
If the Daemon Prince is created from a Sorcerer, Horrors will increase in damage and lower in cost, whilst Beserkers increase in cost. If it is created from the Chaos Lord, then Beserker's armour increases and thier cost decreases, whilst Horror cost increases.
Possessed Marines are now actually created by possessing Marines. Possessed Marines will munch though any non-vehicle thing, but constantly lose health due to instability. (Possessing animation's a little crappy)
Horrors have low health (compared to marines), but regenerate extremely fast. When broken this regeneration is turned to a negative number.
Anything with a knockdown effect will greatly aid towards killing Movie Marines.
Get them Power Fists as fast as possible, they're now extremely good against vehicles and you lack anti-tank in early tiers.
Kraks can kill light vehicles, like Vypers instantly.
Plasma Cannons pwn all, including your own men.
The Closer to Codex mod, for creating the Chaos Terminators, Venerable Dreadnought and Marines with Lascannon, Meltagun and Plasma Cannon models, effects and code.
Corsix, for making the Game Manager usable in DC and allowing the files to be included with people's mods.
