    Apologies for the wait on this one. Really hoped to complete it sooner, but here it is! Hope you enjoy!
    If anyone would like to support me in this project please consider the links below. I work as a contract 3d artist so any donation means less time working for others and more time on Astartes!

      This has the realism of a war film the filming technique of samurai Jack and the attention to detail that only a true Warhammer fan can posses.

      Just want to say, the psychers’ robes look phenomenal. They’re like the unholy spawn of the dragon priests from Skyrim and M. Bison from street fighter.

    This is just great. Keep watching it. So many movies these days don’t have that rewatchable quality. These guys are so badass.

    These might just be the most amazing action scenes i have ever seen, not kidding! The sound is also superb with good headphones and volume at max :) Thanks for this! It is truly a work of art.

    One of the best works set in the warhammer universe. Right up there with the Dawn of War 1 intro :D I keep coming back to this. Thank you!

    This, friends, is why not only are space marines REAL super soldiers, but when something can tear them apart, it HAS to be terrifying

    Okay so I watched this several times over and thought "AHA A CONTINUITY ERROR" at 1:31
    The knife is in the left hand and then suddenly it's in his right with the left pushing the handle.
    So I checked frame by frame. (Using , and . while paused for anyone who doesn't know)
    The *detail* is so perfect. The hand swap is so quick you'd have to look for it.
    This series is an animators dream. This is what I want to be able to do

      BistoNation nice thanks for pointing it out. I hadn’t even noticed that. So many details that people are seeing that I missed. Amazing stuff.

    Impressive, this is the best 40k film out there.
    Just a small mistake at 1:06 you can not see the Marine in front of the Psyker

    The most amazing detail is when the shockwave moves towards the firing astartes and the blast scatters the incoming bolter rounds. The attention to detail is amazing.

    This fanfilm is what should have been Ultramarines in terms of animation quality.
    Shame on you, GW ! Take a lesson on the unofficial films like "Astartes" or "Lord Inquisitor".

    so much care is put into the small details. Things you don't even notice until multiple viewings or someone points it out. Hollywood just doesn't put the care into their stuff like this.

    just stopping in to once again watch this masterpiece and to see if there is any news on whether or not you've been offered a sick contract to make a 40k movie yet.

    With skills like this you will wind up either at Pixar or making advertisements for Nissin Cup Noodle.

    Please make a four part series for each of the factions. I’d love to see what you would do with Orks or Tyranids. It would be nice to have a great tribute video for each faction besides what people hash together from dawn of war cinematics.

    As so many others have said. This portrays space marines exactly as how they should be shown. The scale, speed, flexibility, tactics, fearlessness and their shear might are all on perfect display. I truly hope someone with funding sees this and can make this a full movie.

    I am not sure why, but the effects of the "smite" wave on those bolter rounds @1:03 is oddly satisfying. Also, generally amazing attention to detail. Sound design and visuals are on point. Keep up the awesome work on this!
