Warhammer 40K: Dawn of War.

I’ve recently downloaded and played the beta for the game, and for a RTS, it seemed that the developers got this right.

Anyone familiar with the Warhammer 40k universe will be glad that there is light at the end of the tunnel after the shaky release of Firewarrrior based on the franchise. Although it’s a beta and bugs do exist, it’s the first RTS to really utilise rag doll physics (and copious amounts of blood, which can be switched off for the minors). When things go boom, people start to fly.

You wouldn’t believe it, but it actually uses a similar engine to the one used in Homeworld 2.

Here are some screens. The flaming guy is the Eldar Avatar (aka The Bloody Handed God) The other’s are of the Bloodthirster, a near invincible Chaos Daemon summoned into battle.

I'll try and get some of Space marines, but windows update started and killed everything.

Yup, dl'ed the beta (took 9 hours on this damned 128k) and cant keep my hands off it. Even in beta form its very refined and fun to play, then again from relic i wouldnt expect anything less, they have produced some fine games.
