Steel Legion StormBlade

By the Dark Gods!

At long last the Steel Legion Mod for Relic’s awesome RTS expansion Warhammer 40k: Dawn of War – Dark Crusade has been released.

Steel Legion is a built from scratch multi-branched race mod for Dawn of War. This mod will expand upon the seven races included in the Dark Crusade expansion. This fully featured new race is customizable (i.e. paintable) and boasts a dizzying 30+ units and 9 buildings, many of which are upgradable. An extended A.I. has been included so you may play against a non-player driven Steel Legion race (if you so choose).

The Steel Legion team encourages WH40k:DoW – Dark Crusade owners to give this mod a try, especially online with others. You can read a few more details about the mod and its requirements after the break.

Downloaded the mod, when extracted the mod does’nt run? Some error occured. the mod is .exe it shld be able to run, any clues? :sad:

The mod isn’t an .exe – The extracted .exe is a self-installer. Read the release notes for usage.

Also, make sure you meet the requirements to use the mod. The installer will ask you to point to the DC folder, which is critical.

It will work for soulstorm but when you download it you have to change it from Dark Crusade to Soulstorm. For some reason it changes the other armies names to wierd gibberish.
