After so much time in the pipeline(we could say,ate least two years),the Imperial Fists mod is finally released!


With completely custom models and mechanics(which focus on the defence,as it is the best offence),the Imperial Fists mod has nothing to be jealous of the other high quality mods!

Whenever you prefer to hold into your base and turn it into a truly mighty fortress or unleash Ancient warmachines upon your foe,we are sure you will not be left unsatisfied.

Using brother Gambit_1's Unification patch,you will be able to play to play the Fists alongside the other standalone race and of course,have them in a heroic defence in the extremely detailed Last Stand mode!

Or,you can have them participate in the Campaign strongholds,using brother Kasrkin84's Strongholds mod(which works in tandem with Unification).

And before I close,I would like to personally thank the following people,because without their help,we wouldn't have the mod here:

  • Gambit(as per usual),the master of coding who relentlessly (re-)coded the entire code and AI to optimize and finalize it.And ofc,for his Unification support.
  • Fuggles2k for being the reason the project was revived.
  • Joazzz for supporting the team with his talents(thank him for the great Fellblade warmachines).
  • Fedor_Russia for allowing free use of his mod assets(especially the Predator,which became the chosen style for the rest of the vehicles for this mod).
  • Fragjacker for providing essential technical support.
  • Dontask4470 for responding far and beyond the call with the sound design.
  • And lastly,to Hugh Tamlin/Piggo,whom alongside Thudmeizer,pretty much salvaged and saved the voice over project of this mod.

A more detailed credits list is included in the main page as well.

And we that out,we hope that Dorn's Children will be a very pleasing experience.
Have a good one!

Bugreport, or not. Because I don't quite understand...
I learned Primaris upgrade and it did nothing. Let's choose ordinary marine squad. They were still the same. And if you try to summon the new one - they still the same old marine, not primaris.
Is this upgrade in development or is this a bug?

standalone version is no longer developed.
all development is done within the unification framework.
Also means the individual race pages get checked very infrequently by any one.

But it sounds like it's working as intended.
There is only a single primaris squad in IF: Sons of dorn.
No race except ultramarines will have a full primaris dedicated branch. Everyone else has 1-2 units.

In the thanks I see that they appear Land Speeder, Land Speeder Storm adn Bike Squad. I have not been able to find them within the game. Are there any special conditions to be able to use them?

If you’ve been away for a while this might interest you: The Unification mod comes with the Imperial Fists built-in, as well as 16 other races. Combined with goodies such as new vanilla race content and new game modes. You might wanna check it out :)

Lexandro D'arquebus has to die before you can build the venerable dreadnought. I think the idea is that he comes back in dreadnought form. I'm unsure if any other characters can fulfil the dreadnought criteria. I don't think so, but I might be wrong.

Hey, I've noticed there is voice actor listed for Land Speeder Storm, but I could not find any in game. I s this for feature content? If so, could you share any sneak peak?
