Yeah its cool but the ultramarine chant gets a little bit reptiteve after awile.
I prefer to play with dark ambient from Cryo Chamber on the background or some 40k ambient like "Ecclesiarchy gothic litanies".

To some, this may sound like cheating the experience, but I also feel the Emperor/High Command wouldnt send just scouts to an outpost to defend a planet. Is there a way to modify so that when you get your armor delivered after choosing strategy, you get 4 (so more like a real squad) and after choosing a strategy, can you still learn the other armors? Cause two guys wearing Devastator armor in an 8 man tactical squad is common.

But you can manufacture more armor. It is not too deep in research tree.
And yes you can craft all other types regardless of strategy choice. Assault armor is hardest to unlock i think(chaos raptor needed).

I restarted and realized I made the error in shooting down all the enemies. If I waited till they landed, send drop pods in, I can get some adamntium and promethium every now and then and maybe not lose a lot of guys....maybe

So awesome that new factions are still being added. Looks like you beat Chaos Gate 2 to playable GK lol They do feel OP at start but thats a good thing imo, something that the SM kind of lacked until end game. The requisition system does make them feel more rare and valuable which is a nice change from feeling like IG fodder

Havent played much but it seems like you wont be able to change up the weapon loadouts until you promote them and get different armor? Or will all armor ranks have locked in items?

Speaking of weapons, any thoughts on rebalancing? Last time I got through the base SM campaign with heavy bolters and lascannons that you get early on and there wasnt much feeling of progression. Dont know how much inspiration is taken from the tabletop (which i admittedly dont play) but when i looked up the stats out of curiosity (on wahapedia) there seemed to be a LOT to work with

Cosmetically, love the DoW voices; the armor color seems a bit more like White Knights though :D

Looking forward to what you have in store for Deathwatch, thanks again for the great mod!

Can anyone explain how the order of troops in the chimera is decided? I know that each vehicle holds 8 slots but looking at it now the ninth guy in my list of troops is somehow in the fifth seat on the first ship. Being able to preview the deployment order is nice except since the troops load without their gear it's still complicated to plan your order.

Hey all, I am playing the guard campaign for ROSIGMA and I researched the topic for spawning the final mission.  However, it's been over two months in game and I haven't had anything fire.  How do I start the final mission? 

I am having waves of enemies showing up all over and a new UFO literally pops up every 5 seconds.  Even if I do nothing for an entire month it still takes me 10 min just to speed through the alert windows.  If I really do have to wait, is there a way to reduce the number of missions that spawn per month?  Or at least the number of UFOs?

Fly to the Himalayas and keep your craft there "Patrolling" you should find the final base...then use the final craft (for IG Gorgon) to go there...but Gorgon...best way its to build a new base next to the final base...transfer there the Gorgon + squad + gear and do a short trip...because when I tried to move across the whole continent...well those endless spawns of UFOs destroyed my Gorgon and my 15+ fighter craft where not enough to protect it

Ok, I just did it and it worked!  Thanks, there were no hints that I needed to search for it.  The base idea is great too since I'm drowning in UFOs.  I appreciate the help!

No hints at all?  :)
It's on the second page though, entirely possible to miss.

Upd: Searching for enemy bases is a good idea in 40k. Will help with your "number of UFOs" problem.
