It fills me with joy to see this mod still being worked on. It also makes me think Alf and his team should be damn proud that relic had decided to do dark crusade and soulstorm (along with the SoB team and necron boys) based loosely around the success and interest on the mods they've been working on/created. Kudos to you all lads. I look forward to the end results. Btw hope this community remembers who I am LOL.
Oh we do alright. We had some DE discussions back in the Tyco days fer sure.
That was back when I only existed on the DE Forums not this one though so hmmm......
Actually I was keeping an eye on practically every mod's forum since inception or hear of. I'm directly involved only recently on thud's behalf due to my good work (on paper, at least) on the HRMod.
All heil Gygax.

Thanks again for all of the hours of fun you have give me.
I'm involved via Thud and Alf because of my insane work ethic (as in if I'm not involved in at least 2 mods I'm doing something wrong ).
And I've heard of Blackfang and the older guys because I followed this mod since I got into DoW (so a coupla years now).
I am an Iron Warrior! Iron Within, Iron Without!
If he was on the Dark Eldar forums I would remeber him.
Sorry to be off topic here, but overmind just to refresh your memory, I was there at the very beginning with Alf, Tyco and Triceron and we orginially created the Dark eldar forums between us all. If you go and search one of the old Dark eldar threads in relic forums, you'll find a number posts by myself and tyco about it. How long is it now Thuddy? 1.5 - 2 years ago?
Thought you sounded familiar.
I do remember you.
Too long, brotha.. too long..How long is it now Thuddy? 1.5 - 2 years ago?
That's ok, I'll get right on it. I think I might have a slightly more advanced version of the mod on my pc in terms of OE coding and suchlike. (did a little more visually for myself after i ran out of time, but forgot to upload it :-S) Will check it out later on tonight after I get home from work.
Well this is a MAJOR deal having you back aboard since you helped Tyco back in '05-'07 with DE assets. Now with a website and private conferencing we can spring forward quickly.
Great to hear things are moving again guys, another mod to look forward to
Okay, you mod team guys who I didn't see on MSN, check your Inboxes
EDIT: Okay, just overmind then
BUMP! Sorry for the double post, but here's a few screenshots:
The Kabal of the Broken Heart (thus far):
The big guns:
The backbone of the Kabal:
The leader of the Kabal (a few texture issues, these will be fixed):
Who are these? Very sneaky little guys
The mod is now DC compatable and the tech tree is being converted to match the other races. In the near future: Hellions and the new Dark Eldar HQ!
woot! This looks really great - glad to see that you're pushing past the SS demo. Don't see the texture issues on the kabal leader - they all look very clean and consistent.
My SCAR proves my worth!
They sure look better that the SS ones...
The skulls on the spikes appear to be missing their texture (despite the rsh actually being in the folder an' all), I'm looking into that now.Don't see the texture issues on the kabal leader - they all look very clean and consistent.
Woah! Awesome screenies Gorb .
UBER COOL!!! Thank you guys....I don't know what to say....every day I check this forum and all the sites I know for cool mods.Keep up the good work.If you are looking for a beta tester I your guy.Will the first beta be a public beta???(please say yes!!)...and can you tell me when can I get my hands on this??
You can not change your fate.YOU WILL DIE!
Great to see you guys in game, keep it up, mods are always better than paid teams
Hi people, good to see this mod still moving forward. Thanks for your dedication all!
I think these are great models. Especially the leader of the Kabal looks good! And a nice looking Talos in the background!
Yet another mod to look out for. The modding community is really awesome for this game.
Thanks for the update Gorb. It's always nice to see some public activity in this mod.
necron mod was almost done, but when relic came nothing came from the md
same thing happened with the dark eldar
Darck eldar is not dead, we had an update with creenes a few days ago.necron mod was almost done, but when relic came nothing came from the md
Necron mod was nowhere near completion but regardless Relic did them absolutely 110% justice especially since the late Relic-employed C-L-R was with em. Necron in the DoW franchise are at peace --they are complete.necron mod was almost done, but when relic came nothing came from the md
Dark Eldar will have IronLore's and Tyco's original variants to offer.. thats two. Gorb, The Guardsmen, Overmind, BlackFang, myself, and other 3d team members like Kasker will ensure the community's own DarkEldar offer a TT-approach to those massively evil but quick-as-flight buggers.
well the SS Dark Eldar only lack the "grotesques" and the Wytch Lord
everything else is pretty much there evin wargear-wise
the new screens look very good, a little better than SS....
I remember this mod used to have some super -waRp beast as a relic unit which loked very cool in the screens
well if the alternative will be as good as the WH mod than there is still reason to look forward for this mod
Oh yeah, the Warp Beast Predator, yes . . . . .
No, I don't know what you're talking about
And whilst we're on the subject of units, here's more spiky:
wow.. coo-coo-coo-cool skeletons.. cant wait to kill em..
Not Kings or Gods. Only men.
Slightly cooler than a noob.
Hehe good work you guys. Glad to see all those models are getting ingame.
In regards to the warp beast predator, I think Dr. Grim still has the original model and texture.
Pics of it found here:
Best of luck!
Bier en tieten
Warpbeast files delivered to Grob mins ago. Good Luck.
I so da*n love the Dark Eldars.Please do not understand me wrong if I am saying that the last 3 weeks all I played is the Soulstorm demo(day/night).Can some PLEASE tell me when will the first beta be released???
The internal beta release hopefully isn't that far away. I'd imagine the public beta (assuming we release one ) won't be long after that.
Oh, and what could this be (WIP)?
Well, y'know, clicky to see . . . .
Cool Gorb! wonder what it is, I know forgeworld stuff inside and out and that sure as hell aint one of them! Nice to hear the progress this mod has been making.

Well... looks like a bomber equivalent of a Raven... something quite the antithesis of the DE ethos, so it must be even more twisted and nasty
We look to the heavens so that one day our children may look back towards home.
Without internal beta's, the gameplay would be absolutely atrocious.
Internal builds (from pre-alphas to betas) serve the purpose of bughunting, testing the 'smoothness' of the game, balancing the 'forces', checking that the tech-tree responds to the view you have of the mod etc...
It's a mark of quality from the modders and of respect to the community that they do not just release an untested, bug-ridden product.
You're pretty close there . . . more information will come in timeWell... looks like a bomber equivalent of a Raven... something quite the antithesis of the DE ethos, so it must be even more twisted and nasty
guess you missed your "before SS* deadline =P
Still! keep going! it would be nice to have a propper dark eldar race with what their buildings should be like. and by the why... wheres ALF? starting to think all the modders are on holiday, with him and the main witch hunters mod people being silent n all...
set the worlds ablaze
Yeah, we kinda missed the deadline, sorry folks. I've been really busy of late, but things are definitely moving. As a few people didn't quite like the Hellion models, we've been working on producing new, more TT-styled Hellions, and also have been updating the icons for the UI
To make up for me missing the deadline, have a pretty picture instead. This picture represents the final little coding obstacle (that's been bugging me for a while now) all sorted out and working

Okay... lol... I'm on the mod team and have no idea what is with that picture......
look! incubis! or are they archons... or what...? I'm really confused about dark elder commander units :P
either way, yay! Are they going to have different gameplay from the DE in SS? Because then it'd be like Dark Elder civil war

Oh I think this community is REALLY gonna love whats coming from this mod team.. its quite impressive..
Okay... lol... I'm on the mod team and have no idea what is with that picture......
They are indeed Incubi, they were featured a few posts back. The Farseer is a stand in model for the Drachon, we already have an Archon model.
As for the shiny aura around the Incubi, that's down to a squad leader ability. The Infiltration on the other hand . . . . well, let's just say there's a reason why the Drachon is attached to that squad
Righto, apologies for the double post, but this is an IMPORTANT update.
All mod team members who read this thread, visit the forums STRAIGHT AWAY. The Internal Beta for Soulstorm with the accompanying AI from Thudo is LIVE.
EDIT: And have no worries, following some internal tests we will be looking for a few beta testers. This mod is now SOULSTORM only, I'm afraid. The code is good for both Dark Crusade and Soulstorm, but the AI is Soulstorm-only.

Actually no. I can easily put it over to DarkCrusade within a minute.AI is Soulstorm-only
