      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.

    I just noticed you make the psykers look like separated siamese twins. One is left handed and 2nd one right handed. They wear cloaks to hide it and Thats why they never use both of their arms. Kudos to your dedication to your animation.

    So, one of the battle brothers is named Monos and the Sergeant is named Kohre? Can't figure out any other meaning to these words on individual space marine shoulder guards. Monos can be identified at 0:19 and Kohre at 0:36.

    After rewatching it,i saw one thing that is totally wrong lore by,one of the marines just threw the plasmagun 0:50 .By lore this type of weapon is REALLY expensive and RARE,adeptus mecanicus just fking c@m when they find thomething like that,and given only to ELITE warriors,even if the owner dies from anything,this gun gonna be repaired and stored/given to other one who deserves it,i dont think any of astartes just throws away such a thing

    Cheers for making the most realistic depiction of psykers in a 40k setting. Made them look absolutely lethal, almost demi-god with their abilities. Which in turn makes the Astartes look even more lethal by managing to take them out.

  • 92edoy
    92edoy Před dnem +2

    @Astartes I cannot express how amazing these 2 minutes are.
    After watching it several times, I slowly started realizing that the Astartes had a plan all along, which was not just "we distract the psykers, you go for the kill, brother (I will call him Red Eye just for convenience)", only to be stopped by the enemies' powers. No, the plan was way more complex: the main bulk of the Astartes has to distract the enemies with rapid fire, then Red Eye charges in; however, he is not the one that has to kill the psykers.
    He is the bait.
    That's why he shot with his plasma pistol twice, he didn't want to try to kill the psykers, he wanted their attention. Red Eye successfully got one psyker's attention, and the other brothers kept shooting to force the him to counterattack, thus weakening the grip he has over Red Eye, giving him an opening, which has been stopped by the second psyker.
    At this point the plan suceeded, Red Eye got the attention of both psykers, making them lower their guard and allowing for the last brother (the REAL threat) to lunge for the kill.
    I repeat my statement, A-M-A-Z-I-N-G. The graphics. The combat. The events unraveling in this video. All of them. I hope your videos go viral to such a point GW recognizes your talent.

    I can't believe i've only just found out about this! i also can't believe how perfectly you captured the image of... everything. I've read majority of the 40k books and this is exactly how i visioned the Space marines in my head. Seriously can't express with words how utterly incredible this is. fantastic job, very keen to see what you've got in store!

    The bolter fire rates surprised me here (and made me question how many shots fit into a magazine and where do they carry them, I'm a boring person like that. :D).
    The opposition faced here look like probably psykers, although the only visual suggesting 'warpy' stuff I've noticed were the effects in their eyes. There are also energy tendrils sparking off in other shots, but, well, imperium tech can get very high tier, inlcuding man portable shields, warp energy manipulation and directed gravity.
    Not to say that is a bad thing - lack of random perils of the warp nonsense bleeding off on every move suggests excellent control on the part of the user. So even in the face of astartes they didn't 'push' for more. Or maybe they were made incapable of it? Sanctioned psyker training tends to result in that even before any synthetic replacement / augmentation tech gets involved.
    Also, in the case of the particular powerset shown, it would actually make sense for them to stand out in the open in the middle of a huge empty, flat room, with no real cover or concealment, besides purely cinematographical reasons. Not a lot of fictional work bothers with such things.

    • World is my sandbox
      World is my sandbox Před dnem

      @lipeckih 30 rounds per mag, the replacement mags are lacking from the animation. The psykers are most likely gamma -class or high delta. Weak relatively, but still formidable. In addition the two psykers seems to be related and psychically linked which amplifies their power.

    This is what Space Marines are, and this is why they're fucking awesome. The minimalistic approach to this with their best weapon being a plasma pistol is what makes this entire series of videos amazing. Showing style which gives it all so much substance. The 'binary' anime-like movement in the combat is also much appreciated.
