You sure it isn't just because of the two patches we got? Yesterdat and today? The patches reset the module file.
Can you do a helmet for the warlock at level 0 30 and 60?
I think you can inspire you of the WSE helmet.
level 0 a wick on the helmet, at level 30 a badge on the helmet and for 60 i don't have idea.
an other question, it's to change the other part of the heros?
for exemple change the body of the warlock...
and this will affect the ranked mode?
and, can we change the icon of the personnage such as the force commander?
for example change the actual Plague champion by the plague marine icones?
or the warp spider exarque icon by the warp spider icon?
I wish my FC was a mutant with two heads so i could use the chaplain head and the captain head.
Nice, i had no touched the Farseer in TLS this gives me a good reason to use her
Anyway, preview, Master Warlock armor.
This guy looks like he'll kick your ass in half as soon as he sees you. Which is a good thing right?
hey, i downloaded the first FC helmet and it worked find, nut when i try doing the other helmets my computer says I either have to find a program to deal with the files or save the file. What should I do?

Problem is that isn't both online and offline compatible though, right? I play ranked quite a lot, and I play offline too - which is why I prefer your mod.But like i said, if you like playing off line you can grab the Epic Wargear mode and get the rank 60 for all your units
Anyhow, if you at least ad a basic helmet for the Farseer, I will be quite pleased. It is nice to have incentive to get the higher ranked gear, but unfortunately it seems to take me a long while (mainly because I jump around with race selection too much).
I was wondering if you'd consider giving the Kommando Nob a "heavy battle gear" type of look. Maybe give him more plating, and a horned helmet (the Nob leader horned helmet perhaps), and some extra armored bitz.
Overall though, i'm really looking forward to more Ork and Chaos additions to your mod. Orks because they're awesome and I play them the most, and Chaos because they have so much potential visually.
By the way, I love the new Warlock armor. The shoulder pads look really great. Is there anyway you could make the Seer Council, Warlock Commander, and Squad leaders look different?
Shuma! I need your expertise. Codex Edition needs Chaos Termie heads and we need a Chaos Lord head, that is separate from his termie armor! Can you help us in the Emperor's name?!?! Release is right around the corner! I am just doing the cosmetic stuff now.
Well then i'm afraid all i have to say is that i don't plan to make the rank 60 wargear available just like that, that'd be cheating , besides if you want the rank 60 wargear so bad it's not even hard to get it and still be able to play ranked.
You'd just have to rename some files, for example the steps would be as follows:
Use Corsix's sga reader 2 to open Gameart.sga(chaos files are in 210data or something)
Extract the race's model files and textures located in race_eldar(or _marine, _ork, _tyranid)\troops_wargear\armour(or heads)
Move the _epic versions of armour and wargear to the _common folders
Change the name of the _epic armour and textures to _common
Pack the .sga
Done. You now have rank 60 wargear for all your units and it's online compatible, i however don't plan to do this but someone may want to do it, or you could do it yourself and release it as your own mod, it wouldn't take much time to do it considering that's just copy pasting and renaming stuff and if you or whoever wants to do it has any problems they can ask here in this forums, we're all helpfull people.
And i haven't forgotten about the Farseer's helmet, she's next in line after the Warlock. As for the Orks, i have some ideas for the nobz and the Warboss didn't really think about doing anything to the kommando but we'll see once i get there.
And unfortunately i can't make the 3 warlocks look different from each other withouth breaking online compatibility.
What are you trying to open? You don't need to open the .sga files, and the .module file should be opened with wordpad/workpad or whatever it's called, if you don't have it(i think everyone has it though) then use notepad.
There's nothing new on his back, just 2 gems on his backpack and a different texture for the backpack, but that's not even noticeable from the pic so... what?
Well Chaos IS next after Eldar and i just have the Warlock, Farseer rank 0 helmet and Banshee Exarch to make so yeah i can, i think i can finish the Eldar today.
Now, onto bussiness. The Warlock has a graphical glitch when you upgrade his armour, don't know how to fix it withouth messing around with rbf files(which would break online compatibility) so i'll release 2 versions, one that's just the new helmet and one containing the new armour.
Ok here's the deal with this guy, for reasons unknown that make no sense to me, his armor has a graphical glitch when you upgrade Wargear.
When you buy one of his armors this adds another mesh and texture in place, this is not noticeable when looking at him from above, but once you zoom in it is noticeable and ugly. So since i have been unable to fix this and i believe it's impossible to fix without breaking online, this guy has 2 versions, Master Warlock Armor and Helmet and just Helmet.
Here you can see him in all his glory:
This version, contains both the Armor and the Helmet:
As always, drop the .sga archive in Gameassets/Archive and modify the .module file to load him.
And this version:
(same instructions as above)
Contains just the helmet, which makes his rank 50ish armor look like this:
So there you go, now i'll go make the Farseer's common helmet and the Banshee Exarch, enjoy
And, can you do other helmet for the archonte?
one for level 30 and one for level 0?
I haven't been on the forums lately but I always loved coming to this thread to see what other sweet ideas have been put down and by George! when I saw the Lv 60 Farseer and the new Warlock my eyes nearly popped out...
fantastic work Shuma! really just amazing
I can't wait to merge this with Codex Mod
I don't really see a reason why, the Warlock is pretty much perfectly done. I just changed the rank 60 because i know a lot of people hate the antlers, other than adding a small teardrop or something to the rank 30 helmet i don't think i can do anything for him.
Perfect, Predator's are badasses.
That sucks about the mesh I like to zoom in and look at my newly helmeted units
Well the default Warlock is pretty well done anyway. Anyway, here's a helmet for the rank 0 Farseer, the file contains the rank 30 and rank 60 armour too:
Rank 0 Helmet^
And like i said, the other armours and helmets are in there too:
So just replace the old file and edit the module file as usual, unless you like the ninja mask, then you don't want this file. Anyway, you can get her here:
@ shuma: I just think that we can add a badge on the helmet and change a little the armor of the warlock lvl 30.
Perhaps in the future, for now i'd rather finish with Eldar and move to Chaos. Anyway, preview for the Banshee exarch:
This is her Rank 0 armor, it uses a modified epic banshee helmet, with some texture changes and a small addition of armor to her face.
For the rare helmet i plan to give her Hegscream, Hegscream is the Helmet Banshee Exarch's use, ie, this:
However i plan to base it on the artwork since the miniature also sucks ass, and for her Epic helmet, well, that's a surprise but i'm sure Eldar fans will like it.
looks pretty good
when i saw that hegscream i instantly thought that was a squid stuck on the banshees head. But thats what i think , if thats what ur going to do for the 2nd armour upgrade cant wait on the 3rd upgrade ^^
Well Heg scream is done, no in-game pic unless someone uploads a replay of a Eldar player between rank 22 and 52 using the Bansheee Exarch, meanwhile here's a max picture:
Only the middle orb glows, the other 4 are just those bumps Eldar are so fond of putting everywhere.
Working on the epic version now.
Beware the Banshee's call indeed.
I still have some adjustments to make to the textures, but that's pretty much how the epic head will look. I'll upload her tomorrow. Oh, and if you were wondering the eyes are not Teamcolorable, they're just green.
And it should be pretty obvious on who she's based.

Well Necrons and Eldar are from the same time, it wouldn't be surprising if they had simmi- ok that's bullshit, they're as different as day and night, but she's based on Jain Zar or whatever the name of the Banshee Phoenix Lord is, i'll upload her after i fix some issues with the texture, for some reason her hair glows like a damn rainbow when she moves.
Epic , as always.
I managed to get your helmets in game.
They can be used as wargear too, you just have to change the icon patch from :
C:\Program Files\Steam\steamapps\common\dawn of war 2\GameAssets\Data\art\race_marine\troops_wargear\heads\force_commander
C:\Program Files\Steam\steamapps\common\dawn of war 2\GameAssets\Data\art\race_marine\troops_wargear\heads\forec_commander
It must have the same number of letters as the previous one.
The helmets work like a charm.
Awesome, and i'm sure some of the future stuff i plan on doing for Chaos and the Marines will be of interest to you
Probably not, there are some for the Marines but that's because they're simple. If no one wants to do portraits i may give it a shot at the very end, but considering that even Relic's portraits don't look like the units half of the time i don't think it's a high priority, for example, look at the Havoc's portrait that guy has a bullet belt on his chest in the portrait but that's not the case in-game.
Anyway, the 'Shee Exarch is done, took a bit longer because i forgot to make her Campaign Helmet, thankfully that's pretty much just a case of coloring the texture. Anyway, i love making comparision shots so here we go:
Comparison fromfor the Banshee Helmets, the Rank 0, 22 and 52 Exarch helmets and the 3 common Banshee helmets, and...
Side view, also, this is her Campaign's helmet:
Obviously, it's not team colorable, neither the 'shees or the Warp Spiders from the campaign are team colorable for obvious reasons. Anyway, you can get her here:
Instructions are the same as always, drop the .sga in Gameassets/Archives and edit the .module file accordingly so that no numbers repeat, for new people the instructions are in the OP, enjoy
Excellent as always .
Could I request that when you get to orks you give tankbustas the rank armor relic made for them(its basicaly them with the komando mask) but for some reason decided not to put in multiplayer?
Maybe, we'll see although i do love that Ork mask. Anyway, Eldar Master Pack:
Includes the Farseer with the rank 0 Helmet, the WSE, the Banshee Exarch and the Warlock's Master Helmet, get it here:
Instructions are the same as always.
Dur, wrong link give me a sec.
There. And now it's Chaos time.
This is for the DoW2 Codex mod, but it will be released here too for the public, still wip obviously.

loving the grey knight like helm for FC can you make more modifications to that one like giving him red eyes and having the jumpack that you promised for him
My Face is my Shield!!! My CURRY is my Sword!!!
Using the Cyrus and Thaddeus helmets, will that also equip the helmets in MP for the Scout and Assault Marines sergeants?
Thanks Shuma, now I gotta try and install these puppies haha
You still have them in the module file? Relic's patches reset the module file.
Shuma very good work with chaos terminator!!!! , but you can add a skull crest on the forehead of terminator , like this
Is more chaotic
And can change green eyes with red eyes if you have time
I second the red eyes.
The eyes ARE red, there are pictures in the DoW2: Codex thread of the guy in-game.
Could you do portraits for the helmeted librarian and new helmeted force commadner? In-game portraits and portraits for the squad tab, as well as the ones for the commander select screen would all be appreciated. Great work so far!
Is there a way to have all races helm active or can you only use 1 race at a time? Reason being, when i installed the Eldar's my SM's helms were no longer in game.
Will you be releasing more customized armor for sm like the "Heresy" armor from sp for tacs?
Definitively. I do have an infinitely long list of things i plan to make.
