File Description

When I bought Winter Assault, I thought I'd be getting the Imperial Guard as a turtleing race, not a rushing race. This mod makes the Imperial Guard into a turtle race. Almost all early IG offencive power has been nerfed into oblivion, defences buffed, and teching now much harder. I am rather pleased with the way this mod has progressed in the few days I have been working on it. In addition to the IG changes, I also did some balance changes for the Orks and SM factions.

IG Redesign+

The + is for a few changes for other races

Installation:
-If first mod version is installed, delete it's folder and module

-Unzip into main DoW folder
-Use the game manager to activate this mod

Known bugs:
-Imperial guard will raise Ork banners, specificly, the Blood Axes banners - I do not know how to fix this at this point (Has to do with the module)
-Main screen will probably display the marine from DoW original. This is because I fucked up somewhere (AGAIN!!!!).

About:
When I bought Winter Assault, I thought I'd be getting the Imperial Guard as a turtleing race, not a rushing race. This mod makes the Imperial Guard into a 
turtle race. Almost all early IG offencive power has been nerfed into oblivion, defences buffed, and teching now much harder. I am rather pleased with the 
way this mod has progressed in the few days I have been working on it. In addition to the IG changes, I also did some balance changes for the Orks and SM 
factions.

This mod is by no means complete. Theres still balance issues that I need to resolve, and some things I'd like to do.

There are some un-modifide files included, and this is because I didn't feel like going through each one.


To do list:
-Buff mines on other factions
-Continue to redesign Eldar
-Continue to redesign Chaos
-Address balance issues
