Team Thudmeizer proudly presents the Blood Angels modification for Dawn of War: Soulstorm!

The Sons of Baal, The Blood Angels, were the IX Legion of the original Space Marine Legions under their Primarch Sanguinius. They are particularly well known for their bloodthirsty nature in battle.

The gene-seed of the Blood Angels (and its successors) is still capable of producing all nineteen organ implants that facilitate the transformation of a normal man into a Space Marine. It also has the unique quirk of vastly extending the lifespan of the Space Marines of the gene-line, and it is not unknown for a Blood Angel to live more than a millennium. The gene-line, however, is also affected by a dreadful flaw, which makes its brethren susceptible to the Black Rage and the Red Thirst.

The Red Thirst causes warriors to suffer an unusual bloodlust, instilling them with a thirst for the blood of their enemies.The Red Thirst is so overwhelming that the Blood Angels forget their noble heritage and completely lose control over themselves. It is not unheard of that Blood Angels squads abandon advantageous positions to engage the enemy in hand-to-hand combat. More often than not, these assaults turn out to be so devastating that unprepared enemy forces are simply swept away.

When a Space Marine is overcome by the Black Rage he is reborn in a world of anger, hatred, fury and nothing else. As well as Sanguinius’s memories, the Blood Angel is touched with a small portion of his unearthly power, boosting his strength and vitality to superhuman levels.
Rather than face a slow, insane death, Blood Angels will form those who have newly succumbed to the Black Rage into a special unit known as the Death Company. They paint their armour black, daubed with red crosses, signifying the wounds of Sanguinius, and are usually led by the few Chapter officers, notably Chaplains, who are able to communicate orders to these lost warriors. They are then sent out to perform the most dangerous assaults, hoping for a quick and honourable death in combat.

This mod was first announced back on the 11th November 2004 - and it's fair to say that any mod that spans this period of time has hit difficulties and this mod has fallen inactive at least twice, if not more. The old team are gone, but Team Thudmeizer got permission to continue, however our OE assistance had a crippling HDD failure and so there are clear graphical issues (Moriar, Death company, other units missing animations and forcing their utility.)

This Mod has two branching tech trees featuring the Might and Wings of Sanguinius along with the famous Heroes of the 3rd Company and a twist on the familiar SM playstyle - your units are very powerful in melee, but also bezerk so use caution!

Sorry guys, no such plans.
It's the same with all Race Mods.

SoulStorm is the latest instalment of the series, so...
Plus it is VERY cheap nowadays, and you can get it and enjoy all the additional features.

Thanks for the answer.Yeah I know that it's cheap but for some reason performance drops a lot on Soulstorm while DC has no such problems.Not sure what is causing it probably optimisation..

Just loaded and played this mod (after some disappointment with DoW3) and I really like it! I have my own BA table top figures and really enjoyed the detail in the models. Great work was done here!

Hello brother Stevocarty!

Well... In fact the public build of BA had many things changed from the last "internal" build I had access to.
For example the Oath researches I had added were removed... And some other minor design goodies that - as I see it - were actually "boosting" the faction's flavour and feeling, further differentiating it and making it distinct :)

Can you please join our Revora Blood Angels thread conversation?
Thudo is discussing about making modifications and we DEFINITELY need your approval there!
See, there are the vehicles brother Fedor created, AND we have brother Kekoulis that may be able to fix all remaining minor 3D issues ...
