This mod refields all the units from Rhinoz Mod v2 (see below), and adds Landspeeder variants. WARNING ! This mod is NOT balanced ! It is not meant for competitive play ! It is destined to modders who might want to add units to their mod. It is not THAT unabalanced, though, so can still have fun by just playing it. Warning #2 : there are some small errors in the ReadMe, and a couple of graphical glitches in the mod. Nothing serious, though. Credits : Many thanks to Goldo_O who modeled the Landspeeder, and to Thudmeizer who took the time to build an AI just for this mod. May they both be praised. Description :
DoW's Landspeeder hasn't got anything to do with WH40K's basic Landspeeder. Actually, it represents a unique Landspeeder : the one belonging to the Grand Master of the Ravenwing. This mod allows you to field closer to Codex landspeeders.
The Rhino now has the possibility to be upgraded with a Storm Bolter for combat against infantry, and reinforced against damage (giving it a damage resistance a little above the landspeeder).
The Razorback is a light support tank whose main role is to transport troops and deliver them in the middle of the fight. It can transport single man units (characters), scouts or Space Marines squads (available at the marines barracks) It has twin heavy bolters, efficient against infantry, that can be upgraded to lascannons or a Multi Melta(at tech level 3) It is not as resilient as the Predator and cannot sustain prolonged heavy fighting, but is cheap and quick to produce.
The Vindicator is a heavy assault cannon (available at tech level 3). It has a big gun, very effective against buildings and vehicles. It is not very resistant to damage, though.
Tornado Landspeeder : armed with a heavy bolter. The heavy bolter can be upgraded to multi-melta. An assault cannon or a heavy flamer can be added.
Typhoon Landspeeder : armed with a heavy bolter and a missile launcher. It can fire a devastating missile volley. It cannot fire for several seconds after that, however.
Damocles command tank The Damocles command tank holds ultra powerful sensors that give precious data on the battlefield conditions. It detects enemy units at a much greater range tban any other Space Marine unit, even those enemy who try to infiltrate the Marines' positions. It maintains a link with nearby tanks, giving them coordinate data allowing for an increase in precision and damage. It also sends static that blurs the enemy's machines' spirits and lower their damage to Marines tanks around the Damocles. Last, but not least, at tier 3, the Damocles can start a cartography protocol, its sensors revealing a huge portion of the battlefield for a limited time. This allows to see where the enemy units are, but also to deepstrike units very far into the enemy lines. Be warned, though : this tank is extremey fragile !
Deathwind support Drop Pod. It is much like a classical turret, but it can deep strike via Drop Pods on any visible spot on the map. They are available at the Orbital Relay. They have the same cost as classical turrets, but occupy 2 slots in support capacity.
To build new units : the servitor now has one more construction option. Click on it after tier2 and you can build a new Adeptus mechanicus building, where the new units will be available (except the Deathwind turret, available at the Orbital Relay).
