I just noticed this a few days ago, when you pick skirmish and then go to chose the map you should notice that there is a tiny pictuare near the bottem right hand side of the screen. On this pic there is a squad of guardsmen and a sargeant with them, the sargeant is holding a plasma pistol! This must mean, since the sargeant never has a plasma pistol in the game, that earlier versions of the game had him with a plasma pistol which means the guard might have had at one point, a plasma pistol upgrade! Now I know that this isn't fasenating but it is kind of cool!
i believe that one of the IG mods has it enabled along with power swords and fists for commisars
There's several things in DoW that are included in the models but disabled through the unit stats. Like Hypnotoad said, several mods are making them available again.
The orks had a ability which involved the plane that drops off the structures that grots build droping bombs. That would have been a great ability for the big mek.
For the game at the beginning of it with no mods, the Imperial Guard Sergeant has no plasma gun upgrade. But there are mods that allow things such as this.
yaa, i was kinda dissapointed when i first got WA and alot of upgrades like powerfists for veterans and lascannonns and flamers for tanks werent included. is their a mod that adds new weapons to the basilisk or leman russ (i no they have one for the sentinal already) cus having a speciliased force of leman russ demolishers would be cool , o yaa!
