The older Space Marine armour, which still sees some use in the 41st millenium (mainly the helmets) is available for you here in the Mark VI Armour mod! Notable changes are to the armour's shoulders, and helmet. The helmet is in the classic 'beak' style, which will gain appreciation from many people, I assume ;)
Remember, this mod will NOT work on Winter Assault OR the 1.4 patch! If you have upgraded to either, this mod will not work for you. Ideally, it works best on 1.2, but mod creator Mudflap has stated it is also compatible with the 1.3 patch.
Mark_VI Space Marine Mod V0.01 by Mudflap http://games.groups.yahoo.com/group/nurglings/ This is for all those old school Rogue Trader fans out there. This presents Space Marines in Mark VI Armor. The model is based on those great plastic box sets with pointy nose marines. The model was developed by BoredPilot and Kendo for the now defunct Horus Heresy Mod. With Compiler's help they let me have their model and texture. Thanks to all those guys for making this possible. I rigged and added biped anims to the model to make it live in the game. I also made Kendo's texture teamcolorable. I have also added my own original model of the Mark VI rocket launcher. It is inspired by those plastic space marine armies circa 1992. It has a pointy nose and rocket magazine that sticks out the top. Now the space marines look just like my old tabletop army. It works best in DOW version 1.2. It works in 1.3 but the army painter model is too small. Mod Installation: To install the mod, unzip the files into your Dawn of War folder. The files will unzip into a folder called "Mark_VI" All the files, except the two needed to start the mod and this readme, will unzip into this folder and have been designed not to affect your core W40K files. After you unzip the mod go to your "Dawn of War" folder and doubleclick on "Run_Mark_VI.bat". This will start the mod. Then go to skirmish mode and start a skirmish. Play a space marine army. They play just like regular space marines. Have fun.
