Post news RSS Legiones Astartes faction: the grand plan

Ever wondered what this mod could be? The kind of ridiculously OP units that will be implemented? Here you can not only find some of your answers but more questions.

Posted by on

The Legiones Astartes faction will be structured as a generic 30k SM faction with a variety of infantry, light, heavy and super-heavy tanks, skimmers, Knights and Titans, all here to provide different methods to annihilate the enemy.

No shiny images to reveal the content yet, but a huge damn list for the different buildings that will be placeable, and the deployable forces per building. I've also included detail on the available weapons, addons and internal squad capacity for certain buildings and units. Also, while the list is more or less complete, a few changes may come in the future.

A few questions i want to put forward.

1. Will the Catapharactii termies have force fields, considering they have hidden shield generators under their huge pauldrons?
2. Any possibility of seeing some Dark Angel exclusive goodies such as glaives armed with vortex cannons, terminators armed with phosphex incinerator cannons (Source: Angels of Caliban) or stasis missiles?
3. Any chance we'll get to see the void shield generator as a late-game fortification?

This is truly a huge undertaking, especially for one guy. I wish you the best of luck and feel free to take all the time you need!

Its always a pleasure to answer such questions:

1: It is planned for them and praetor terminators to have extra shielding, indeed.

2: While I'm glad to add extra mysterious weapons for vehicles, all weapon slots for infantry are already taken just with the standard weapon range. Perhaps I can rewrite said weapon range for the praetor termies to include more legion-specific weapons.

3: Technically, they are already in my internal list of features, along with some other mystical stuff. I'll just have to find a way to implement them properly.

Any chance you will implement some custodes weapon like Arachnus Storm Cannon ,Iliastus Accelerator Culverin ... and the warlord-sinister as “hero” titan ?

The stormbreaker is a different name I gave for the older variants of the Fellblade, which are based on the baneblade chassis (a few exemples: Bit.ly, Bit.ly , Bit.ly ).

Some custodian weapons will most likely be wargear for commanders or max tier upgrades.

As for a hero titan, it could be an interesting feature, but for much later.

List update 12/08/2020:
- Changed the organization of the vehicles units in two buildings instead of three (thanks to UI tweaks);

- Some vehicles were merged, thanks to addon upgrade system;

- Removed the Dominus Bombard and (potentially) the Praetor Assault Launcher in favor of the Arquitor and the Mastodon Super-Heavy;

- Added the missing Warbringer Nemesis Titan into the Titan gate unit list.

Hi there this sounds awesome, have been getting together all the pre Heresy badges for Dawn of War 2. Some am sorting myself and some have found on downloads. If they are any help happy to hand them over and you can have a look if they might help. Have got all the legions covered. Most based on Forge world versions. Am still working on them. All the best

Thats an extremely interesting offer. I'll reach you in PM once the mod gets to the final stages.

I guess you could add the new Warmaster heavy battle titan to the titan gate list, it's between a Warlord and Imperator in size and power.

I've seen it, interesting piece. Once I have a new preview to show, the list will get a heavy update, which will include the Warmaster Titan.

Update 02/02/2021:

-Added (more like readded) Destroyer Squads as a Heavy Support squad variant, wielding devastating zone weapons. They will not have a morale bar, at a certain cost;

-Added the Warmaster Titan in the list. More details later;

-Slightly more details on commanding Centurions, with a list of combi-weapons that will be available;

-Changed weapons lists for a few vehicles and walkers, also added new weapons (no mentions of the plasma fetish will be made);

-Added branching system for late tier units, so you'll have to choose between Heavy Tanks, Knights or Titans. Tough choice;

-Added offensive/defensive branches for the Defence Post;

-And other, more or less minor thigns, feel free to discover the changes.

A few questions I want to make.

1. Could the Praetor infantry line have some unique wargear, loadout to make them distinctive from the standard legion infantry ?

2. Could make force weapons work as both melee and ranged weapons, like it can shoot warp magic like fireball, lighting, ...  ?

3. Each advanced branch unit has their own building or they replace the standard one in the legion manufactorum ?

4. Since a lot of custom plasma weapons are being added, will other types of weapons like melta, las, grav ... have some custom weapons too ?

These question come out from my own curious , hope you don't mind, wish you best of luck in developing the mod

1: Will do;

2: There are already a few force weapons in the list;

3: They have their own building, while the legion manufactorum is universal;

4: If I get the inspiration for them, yes.

Update 16/02/20:

-Added some new weapons into the list, such as hellguns, multi-lasers, melta cannons for Deredeo dread and stormbreaker or seismic cannons;

-Made some weapons exclusive to praetors;

-Added Saturnine Terminators ( expect a design similar to this: I.pinimg.com );

-Teasing legion tactics, and legion specific unit choices / aesthetics. First version will only have generic legion, however.

I have a question : judging by other comments, cataphractii terminators will be more bulky then Tartaros. However, Tartaros are the melee ones, which means they will take more damage, while cataphractii will be staying behind. I find that a bit weird, but maybe I just don't use melee units right.

The confusion comes from the fact that bulky doesn't always mean better armour.
Infact Tartaros termies have better, sturdier armours compared to cataphractii termies, which allows them to soak up more melee damage, but the latter have an energy shield that absorbs ranged damage better.
Thats how I decided the melee/range specialization, and I hope it will allow you to understand my reasoning.
Also, Praetor terminators (which are both ranged and melee) will have ornate cataphractii armors.

Oh, now I see! I suppose Tartaros, being the more advanced armour, has better materials and overall quality. Makes sense then. Saturnine still best tho:)

Update 26/03/2021:
-Remade weapons lists for Warhound, Reaver, Warbringer, Warlord and Emperor Titans. Added the new volkite weapons, a whole lot of carapace weapons and some other goodies.
All titans in-game will receive complete remasters (sorry if you liked the current models) to include all the weapons and receive new styling for some.

Weren't there actually enough space to house all weapons on warlord, for example? I saw in one of your videos that it had 3 lines of upgrades, and 6 weapons total on the model.

There is just enough space to host all the new weapons. Current weapons choices take a lot of space due to the separated shoulder options, but this will be compacted.
It will take a total of 19 spaces for all new weapons. But certain might be deleted if they are too redudant gameplay-wise.

Question about Legion Tactics: When choosing specific Legion, would you make a standalone new unique units or change the current unit to become Legion unique units

Infantry and commanding squads will be replaced according to their legion specific equivalents (if they have one), praetor contemptor dreads ( standard ones too sometimes) and leviathan dreads will get new armours according to their legion, and commanders will be replaced by named characters.

A couple questions:

1. I have noticed that in the list of legions "Gladius Imperator" is listed, i have never heard of them, who are they?

2. Are Primarchs going to be added?

3. Are Custodes going to be featured in any way?

Good luck with the mod, it may be the best i have seen.

1: They are my homebrew legion that represents the second legion. More may be told about them in the future.

2: Not for the moment, perhaps in the far future.

3: Since I don't want to overshadow the Custodes mod being developed by the Unification mod team, they won't make an appearance here.
