Warhammer 40K Chapter Master

Looks like a cool mod. Haven't played it myself. In fact I have played only Chaos Gate, which as I understand runs on the XCOM Apocalypse engine, or a very precise clone of it.

Interesting, I wasn't aware of that.

I do not think this is Xcom engine,
- tiles have different dimensions (its look like unit is two tiles tall)
- there is not "black map" at beginning
- inventory is handled differently
- allow zoom out
- flying work different

If this engines have some in common then it was very very heavy rewriten.

Yeah. Its uses the Wages of War engine: https://www.mobygames.com/game-group/game-engine-random-games-1996-2000-strategy-engine

They made numerous XCOM clones with it.

The game is full of excitement and war based which carry interest till the end.
