It took some time but I am proud to announce the release of the Praetorian Mod!

The Praetorian race is in a solid state and can be played with and against with a fully functional AI.

Currently it is not compatible with objective points mod and thus if you play against other race mods it will not present the correct behavior on the praetorian banner. This is one of the reasons it is a beta.

There will be updates in the future which should solve some of the known issues but nothing significant.
Art assets should remain mostly the same so likely there will be no new units but rather bug fixing and possibly balance efforts if required.

Enjoy this mod and have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

Credits are available in the mod page summary and in a file included with the mod but since their work was so important they deserve to be refered here also :)
Some credits related to the alpha version off the mod by Tempest and are kept for historic reasons.

This Mod is alive! I guarantee it. I am solely responsible for its pause. Mainly for "IRL" reasons which forced me to review my priorities. New models have already been made (implemented in the game) and others are corrected and updated. It is "3D", Animations, "OE", "AE" and Arts works, relatively complex because they impact the gameplay. I have to make sure that the teams that have or will work on the gameplay understand the objectives of my models. The "Structures" are at the origin of the design concepts created by "RT2" and "GreenScorpion" which I reworked to accentuate the visual identity of the faction. I modified the models to build the "Background" of the gameplay and be able to obtain a "build_order" more consistent with this "background".
It's a gameplay point of view that involves only me at the moment, I have to sell my "vision" to the rest of the "team". I'm just one of the "tools" that synthesizes the aspirations of members of the "Men of Praetoria" mod development team.
My personal challenge is "Arts Design" and to get a consistent faction in its gameplay and Background. Unfortunate design choices can easily distort this faction. I favor the "old school" vision of the wh40k hobby. (I am not an expert on rules but I like the old-fashioned scent of old codices.) My Inspiration for my work comes from the official background but also that created by the fans.
There is no point asking questions that will remain unanswered for the time being. I really don't have the time "IRL" to promote the Mod. So I leave this “time consuming” task for the rest of the team for the moment. I only focus on a version of the mod that implements the full potential of the models. The main objective being to archive the work already carried out.
They will have a clean and tidy toolbox to finalize the "build order" and do a "brainstorming" on the deeper "global DPS". This will allow us to wait for the rest of my work for the faction, because I still have many models to make for the faction. (Alternatives to the "buil_order" which will no longer impact the "heart" of the gameplay.)
To understand my motivation, I made the "Modding" support of the "Praetorian Faction", which implies that my work is intended to be exported to other types of gameplay ("Dowpro", "Codex" or "UA" for example). Mod "Men of Praetoria" is dedicated to "DoW / SS" gameplay and therefore does not have the obligation to use the full potential of the models. It is something that I accept with serenity, when I have finished the list of my works for the faction I will study the interest of making it myself a mod.

Sorry if the translation is wrong.

2019 is less impressive on the outside but brings a lot more to the interior mod. I fell behind on my annual report.

Hello to all the brothers,

(sorry for my approximate English)

Superb achievement of the praetoria guard, congratulations to the entire project team, it's excellent beta start. The army is neat, the buildings stick well to the atmosphere, the alliance with the mercenary orc is original.

For the game play, excellent firepower, and the tactic of advancing and then consolidating its position with bunker and medic station make it a nice army to play.

But, in the future will there be a patch ? or the project is dead ?
For to adjust the fighta-boumma so that it is a jump, cat it remains blocked in the sets designer, and this makes it useless. Above all bring faster and more units that can detect infiltrators, because only Afriel troopers have this ability(available in Tier 4) against the Tau and chaos it is impossible to win against their infiltrators at the beginning of the game.

Thank you for all the content you bring to this great game that is Dawn of War Soulstorm.

Peace and merry Christmas brothers
Gen&tik;
