Alpha 8.79 Features
  • New Missile Launcher model for the Chaos Havoc class. The Missile launcher was modelled by Clay_more. It will continue to work the same as the imperial version, the primary attack firing a wide area frag missile and the secondary attack launching a Krak missile that does more damage in a smaller area.

Tweaks
  • Tweaked the details of how the Narcathium works as an offensive weapon.

Balance
  • Buffed Terminator resistance to bullets and bolts from 0.2 to 0.52.
  • Nerfed Dreadnaught resistance to bullets and bolts from 0.55 to 0.159.
  • Buffed Dreadnaught resistance to fire by applying it's general armour modifier after accounting for the general marine resistance to fire.

Future Plans
The CSM missile launcher was the last chaos weapon waiting to be implemented. I think i'll spend a couple of weeks polishing up before we can test a release candidate for Beta 9 and make a big hurrah about the Chaos marines.

The plan is to move on to work on the space marine scout once the CSM weapons are in-game. Then update all the marine chapter packs support the scout and the chapter specific battlecries Bulwark has already recorded. Adding a new playable class will mean that game balance will almost certainly need testing and tuning.

Once those are done I look forward to taking EX out of Beta and making public the version 1.0 release.
