All hail the Omnissiah!

The public Beta of the Adeptus Mechanicus Mod is available now for download containing a fully playable new race for Dawn of War Soulstorm with a very unique playstyle!


admechss


The priests of Mars, followers of the Cult Mechanicus have arrived on the battlefields. Driven by their quest for knowledge rather than for conquest, the Explorators are here to recover lost technology, but will fight to the death in this cause. Their love of the machine means that the Tech-priests utilise advanced technology in their weapons and automatons and revel in upgrading the weak flesh with mechanical augmentations.

Arriving in a mobile base, which is both production plant and fortress they use powerful automatons to assist them, however these must have their databanks refreshed by coming into contact with a listening point, or being rebooted by a leader else they will grind to a halt and need to be recovered.

Explorators are highly mobile, moving from site to site and do not use more than the minimum of buildings, so their listening posts are unique in that they can be used for research or defence. Further, they can convert incoming requisition into power with their matter converters.

Truly, the Adeptus Mechanicus have arrived!

Where does the Visitor concept come from? I can't find any description of the unit online.

Hey so i got the mod to work and tried it out and i love most of it but there are a lot balance issues i notice. So first off, they seem good mid game but there early game and late game is horrible. Now all the infantry feel fine and all the vechiles are great. Now with early game, they dont seem to have any ways with dealing with rushes. A fix to this would just to add bolter turrets. That alone would fix it.
Another issue is all the upgrades feel way overpriced. None of them made any significant changes to my army, even the later ones. So cheaper upgrades would be nice. Also i couldnt find any real use for the servo skulls. They seem like a waste of points to me. My final issue is their final unit and mobile base is just bad. Like the lvl 2 units are just straight up better than the final ones.
Finally, admech should have titans. In lore, they make all of them. They should have titans.
Thats my review so far. I have no issues with anything else in the mod.

I agree, I have however noticed my units feel squish and can't really fight back that well, but that might be me

Is there to fix the green turret atop the listening post? Otherwise this mod is perfect.

That's good to know I hope the mod gets slightly updated as well ad mech are fun but they don't have many vehicles I've tried to do diemos peninsula with them in the strongholds mod and their lack of vehicles makes it difficult to get passed the blood pulses as admech are not immune to blood pulses so I can't keep my vehicles running as they need to be near my leader to stop them from breaking down
