Here are some interesting aspects of the patch- A new army painter interface- Adds another trim layer, but it also makes all the eyes red (Except in the preset armies) for any of your personal creations. Persistant Decals and Bodies- Now you can litter the battlefield with craters, blood splatters, and dead bodies. It doesn't apply to any vehicles or commander units. The main menu has been tweaked a bit as well. The thing that I really hate the most is that many of the DOW mods have been broken in 1.4, and they won't work (The guys assured us that 1.4 wouldn't do that like 1.3, but I guess that wasn't true) This patch will also be contained in WA, for those of you who aren't able to download such a big file.
