Default Dawn of War army painter custom schemes

Hey everyone.

The army painter on the first Dawn of War is quite restricted in what you can do with it. I've seen a few sites on the net that have modders who manipulate them so they can make custom schemes and allow new layouts. Is anyone who post here any good at that?

I ask because the Iron Lord marines I collect are black torsos, arms, pads etc, but with red legs. In the original army painter thats impossible to do because the primary colour does the legs and body as one. Just wondered if anyone here has created custom colour layouts before and could make me a scheme so I can play my beloved Iron Lords in game.

Thanks for reading

Wasn't sure of too many myself but have had a little search in an attempt to help you out and this website looks like it could be quite good. They seem to have a lot of mods for Dawn of War with a lot of mods focussing on the Army painter. Whether or not any of them do what you want them to I don't know, but worth a try

Dawn of War Mods.

The 'Uber Painter Mod for Dawn of War' on tge second page sounds as though it's exactly what you're looking for but as I have no experience with DoW mods I'll pet you be the judge of that :

Uber Painter Mod for Dawn of War.
Uber Painter Mod for Dawn of War v1.1.

Either way I hope this has helped to some extent.

Unfortunately not. Custom schemes require editing of the texture/team colour files themselves. No one does modding on that scale just on someone's request.
