I believe it's all included in the Relic dev kit, which can be found on dawnofwar.filefront.com. Try searching for << Relic Developer's Network Tools >>.
Relic is full of tools, though. :rolleyes:
To make new models you need the mod tools (they contain an exporter) and you need 3DStudio Max (yes, the program that costs several thousand dollars for a license). Only 3DSMax has an exporter to convert its model in to game models. I think searching "mod tools" is more likely to find results on DoWfiles.
As for texturing, you need my [color=blue]Dawn of War Texture Tool[/color]. Relic's mod tools assume that anyone wanting to texture will be doing it at the point of exporting the model to the game, and so don't include a stand-alone texturing app.
This question has been asked before, and the answer is located inside the FAQ I created. *sigh*
Cheer up, you'll get used to it eventually. Stickies and FAQ threads mean very little to a lot of people and they think it's less effort to just ask rather than looking ;)
Yeah, I've realised that. Ah well. It saves typing answers out now, I can just post links. :D
