Top 10 Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War Mods

As we all eagerly await the release of Space Marine, now is an opportune time to celebrate an earlier video game in the Warhammer 40k series: Dawn of War. Put on your power armor, because we’re going on an inquisition to find the top 10 mods for the RTS that raised an army of fans.

10. Steel Legion – Armageddon

This mod introduces the Steel Legion as a new playable race in DoW, balanced with the existing races. The Steel Legion has unique strategic elements with more specialized units and the ability to deploy more forces to the battlefield.

9. Killteam

Not to be confused with the similarly-named standalone release, Killteam is a 5 player co-op hero defense mod in which players must survive 40 randomly generated waves of increasing difficulty and overcome powerful bosses to survive. 18 custom heroes, new models, textures, and abilities — friends not included.

8. Wh40k Tabletop Experience

Here’s a mod that re-balances DoW based on the original tabletop version of the game. If you’re an old-school wargamer, you need to check this one out.

7. Tabletop Round-up

What? Two tabletop mods in a row?

Yeah. Deal with it. Respect the game’s roots.

This mod was primarily designed to increase the damage values to more ‘realistic’ levels, and includes further balance changes to reflect this increase in damage, such as a doubling of Ork population cap.

6. Tau mod

This mod seeks to bring the Tau Empire to DoW, complete with new 3d models, textures, sounds, and coding. Some say the new units are overpowered, but we’ll let you decide for yourself.

Heh. Talk about your inopportune typos. It’s only about 1/4 as good as Warhammer 40,000.

Thanks for mentioning it. We’ve corrected the error.
