A long time ago, a vet modder named Grimnar42 released only internally two Chaos mods: Iron Warriors and Death Guard (Nurgle). Shin also released only internally an Emperor's Children (Slaanesh) mod. Catwell continues his amazing work on his KWE project (Khorne) so thats not covered here.

All three, Iron Warriors, Death Guard, and Emperors Children will be featured here for beta testing. It was Grimnar42's dream to see his projects cleaned up and released and now that is coming true.

The progress report on the Chaos mod projects is as follows:

IronWarriors and Death Guard
- All code, UCS, AI, icons, taskbar = 100%
- 3d work = obviously is not entirely done but its entirely salvageable. We're still using alot of Grim's old work and other good placeholders.
- Voices = will require some creative speech writing but this will be undertaken shortly.
- Beta progress = Ready for testing!

Emperors Children

- AE code = UnDirector with the help of ChaosReigns has drastically updated the EC build/tech tree so that is going in-game now.
- UCS, AI, icons, taskbar = based on above will be updated to be in-sync.
- 3d work = mostly done by Shin, Stranger, and now handled primarily by Catwell. We have made significant strides in this regard!
- Voices = will require some creative speech writing but this will be undertaken shortly.
- Beta progress = Not ready for beta as of yet. We have an internal build but with the new build/tech tree we are redesigning it.

What we need?
Testers, 2d artists for icons and taskbar, voice scripts, animators, and OE experts.

Private mod forums coming REAL SOON!

Thanks everyone!

Because im Nurgle (every nerd has lil bit o nurgle), these are dedicated to Death Guard:

Chaos Lord:

Ready:
"I stand ready."

Attack/Go:
"Embrace the end!"
"Your soul is mine!"
"Vanquish the weak!"
"Pitiful!"
"In Mortarions name!"

Idle:
*grunt*
"What now!?"
"None, shall survive"
"Terror!"
"Death!"
"Be afraid!"
"Victory draws near"
"Death to those who oppose us"


-----------------------
...some examples

So...could you tell me little bit about Death Guard units and such? I mean it is easier to write when you know who you are writing to.

There is lots to read up on them online.

Golden Horde know about them as well to give you an understanding. However the unit list will be provided in the private dev forum.

I suppose I should sign up, I am the master of all things Chaotic.

Although I thought Death Guard and the Iron Warriors were under the control of Heretic (from RelicNews)?

Both Heretic's Iron Warriors and Death Guard are separate mod projects from Grimnar42's originals. Heretic did get a sneak peek at them a year+ ago but since then both plus other Grim projects have been utterly and massively improved and now in closed beta.

I do not know where Heretic stands in terms of level of completeness with both his projects but I fulfilled Grim's original '2007 wishes that his IW, DG, LotD, and 13th were to be done and beta'ed based on his original vision.

Hey thudo,
first I wanted to thank you for what you're doing for the DOW community. I really appreciate your commitment. I mean, man, your're almost everywhere :p
I also have a small question. Which of the mods presented here are going to feature new buldings?

I'll try to get to people -- I am currently overwhelmed right now.

Currently, IronWarriors has a new building. Others might follow in due course.

Ugh.. no no... I just said: IW is the ONLY Chaos project here being represented on this site that currently has a new building. In future, that could change.
