Hey guys, some of you probably know me just as "That guy who bitches a lot" but surprisingly i also make simple 'mods' for lack of a better word for Dawn of War 2, now that the Retribution beta came out i got some shiny new toys to play with so i've decided to make an announcement here simply because i've seen a lot of people didn't like certain things in Retribution, at least one which i know was a surprise for everyone.
All this mods are compatible with Ranked games, your opponent however will not see the difference unless he has the same mods:
Chaos Rising Guardsmen:
This mod simply replaces the Retribution guardsmen with the CR Guardsmen, ie only Guardsmen and Heavy Weapon teams are affected.
Imperial Guard General with Commissar's Hat and Cigar:
Whiteshield's Hellgun replacement:
Replaces Stormtroopers, Whiteshield's hellgun replacement replaces hotshot lasguns with the hellgun.
Death Korps of Krieg Pack:
Freebooters for MP:
I'm sure the lack of Freebooters in MP was a shock for everyone in the beta, this mod simply replaces the models and textures of the basic Orks of DoW II and CR with those of the Freebooters from Retribution.
Edit: So as we all know Relic has added the Freebooters to MP too, well the difference between Relic's and this ones is pretty simple, this ones change the whole race, ie you cannot choose from basic orks or freebooters, second this ones are team colorable and third this one have rank unlock, Relic's start awesome looking, this ones get awesome looking as you rank up.
Ork Boys Red Eyes:
MagpiesRavens got this hat from the Inquisition, the Inquisition has no records of this:
This one is obviously a joke but the space is reserved for the future return of Diomede's helmet
Space Marine Packs:
Black Templar Pack:
This little mod gives the Plague Champion and Chaos Marines the blighted bolter by default, in other words, they always have that bolter. Enjoy
A simple reskin for the GUO.

Instalation is very simple, you simply download the .sga file and place it in your \GameAsset\Mods folder, if there's no Mods folder create it. This folders can be found under "Valve\Steam\steamapps\common\dawn of war ii - retribution beta\"
All this mods are only compatible with Retribution and should continue to work once the full game comes out, they're not compatible in any way with DoW II and CR.

Note: Official thread is a bit of a mess since most of my pictures are down, ask any question there and i'll answer though since i wont answer big questions here as dictated by the rules of the section:
With all that out of the way, enjoyQuestions about modding or specific questions about the development of a mod should still be directed to the Heretek Cabal.
Existor has been kind enough to make portraits that are also ranked compatible for this stuff, you can find his thread here:
