I am working on a total conversion mod for HoN, set in the Warhammer 40K universe, which I named Heroes of Warhammer 40K.
My intend is to create new heroes from various races with abilities, items, creeps, maps, etc taken from WH40K. This will make a complete new game.
Thanks to my past modding experience on Dawn of War 1 (I took part for years in diverse mods such as Witch Hunters, Armoured Company, Splinterfleet, etc...
I have many contacts and friends still within the DoW1 modding community and working on major mods and I am confident I will get help and support from them. When their mods will be finished, which is soon now, these friends may move to HoN and this project. I should be able to get animated skinned models from them that we would need to import into HoN.
I am already working on the game design :
- listing DoW mod units and their corresponding models,
- listing abilities, items, etc in the fluff
I would take care of :
- Game design
- UI and icon design
I would like to make a team made of dedicated motivated HoN modders to quickly start this mod. I need 3D guys, game designers, coders to make this true.
If you are interested by this thrilling project, don't hesitate to contact me either in this thread or by pm.
There is no such thing as innocence

Hey PogS, I should be able to lend a hand in the 3d department. Might have some divided attention at the moment with uni but I should be able to make myself useful.
WoW, AWESOME! I hope to see some Taus
Oh ****, my signature just vanished with Scout :/
Sounds like a great idea, I'm not far enough into coding experience to help you but I hope this gets done.
I'm saying this because you might only need a bit of scripting and the map editor to do what you want or you might need to use the SDK. Since we don't know much about either one and your project is kind of vague for now, I will wait to give an official response.
you know that games workshop is kind of mad on any products regarding their universes if they don't get paid, and that your mod will be shut down fast once it's released, don't you?
There are a couple general rules of thumb:
1. If you include something from the 40k universe, it has to include everything from that universe. Thus you can't put a Space Marine in HoN and leave the rest of the game as it is. You have to convert the rest of the game to the 40k setting. I'd imagine S2 have something in place regarding their intellectual property.
2. If you add something into a something set in the 40k setting you have to remove everything that is 40k related. For example, you can't make up your own race and put it in the 40k setting. If you're making a 40k modification it must contain races and units that already exist in the game rules for Warhammer 40,000 or the background fluff for that game (or the related Specialist Games like Battlefleet Gothic and Inquisitor).
I'm currently up to my neck in RL work and also managing a couple of DoW mods (really need to get moving on the Dark Eldar and the Battlefleet Gothic Total Modification), PogS, but add me to your team. I'll start looking at HoN code and how it works; I'm a novice programmer so hopefully I'll pick up the basics quickly. I did with DoW I

confused as to what you guys are doing here, is this a 40k complete reskin of the game? like everything in hon would look like warhammer? or is this going to be a completely seperate map / game?
if it were a skin pack that changes everything in hon, that would be amazing. id even offer my help any way that i can for that.
Tell me if you need some sound design.
that sound so ****in good what u are planing to do
I were planing to make a "Dream" Hero in WH40k Universe, cause im playing WH for about 12 years.
When I have good Idea's for Heros/Skill etc. then i can shared them with you guys.
Just if u want to
