    Edit: The original creator has been hired on by GW to continue the project and contribute to others. As such the originals are no longer available on BGfix, the project is now on Warhammer Community. Links have been updated. I'm not sure how this news will affect the future of the project, but I find myself feeling pessimistic. I hope I am wrong. Either way, this video will remain up as long as I am allowed to and I have added a mega link for this edit at the bottom of this comment and the description.

      @Aethenthebored All true. But not applicable as I understand it? This is still an orginal work. As such it enjoys copy right protection. Weather that work has been commercialized is immaterial. This has been part of international copy right law precident for over a century. License to distribute and trade mark are separate issues. And that's up to GW to pursue or as is the case, not. Of course copy right protection is also up to the creator to pursue. So this is all clearly a moot point at this stage. Even so, I think you raise some interesting legal arguments and I could very well be mistaken. I shall research more. Thank for the insightful comment.

    • Aethenthebored

      @Maximum Bacon "fair use doesn't cover it." But the license it was released under does. Creative commons license allows redistribution. Further, compilations have long been protected under fair use, specifically in cases like this where neither the original nor compilation were commercial products.

      @SteampunkNord Truth. Things changed. Obviously. More importantly the Astartes channel doesn't care. That's the main thing. I get we WANT this. My argument was never that it wasn't amazing. My argument was that wanting something doesn't give you right to it and that fair use doesn't cover it. But hey, we got it. Author doesn't care and GW hasn't put a strike on it. Win, win, win.

    • SteampunkNord

      @Maximum Bacon This super cut is the only way I can watch this, aside from the ocassional memes that come up using this animation.

    • Kidd's_Realm

      @TheChach Hope you're having a wonderful day!

  • Vhailor

    Good thing you actually have made a full edit mate. The soundtrack is far better on the original version. I understand that GW wanted to avoid legal suit with the original soundtrack but hell, it sounds fierce and brutal. At least, you provide me with an excellent back up and thanks for that.

    The movement and flow of the camera starting at 4:23 is spectacular. My favorite part is where the Astartes gets a pistol shot off inside of the shield and almost impales the psyker with the knife (4:55) only to be stopped by the other psyker. The intensity of this engagement is the masterpiece with the coolest zoom shot at 5:02.

    Does anybody know if these guys are supposed to be from a specific chapter? I was thinking since they're all dark grey and the only logo I can see is the imperial skull on the pauldron that they might be deathwatch, but if they're deathwatch their other pauldron should have their original chapter paint still. I can't think off the top of my head of any chatpers who's colors are dark grey with a golden skull.

  • VillainousMuse

    I still can't get over how bad ass this makes the Astartes actually feel. There's an entire ship to be taken and cleansed, how many do they send? 6.

    • VillainousMuse

      @Yuri DeKhed *Blink blonk* Do you... get your jollies off by being a condescending asswipe? Just curious because it's the only reason I can think of that someone would behave like this. I mean, you do you but could you do it somewhere else? Also 6 is not an odd number for Marines, as their combat squads are typically between 5 and 10 depending on their needs. 6 being a number between 5 and 10, I feel that assertion is not out of line. Especially if a combat squad is joined by a unique character/hero unit ( 5+1=6 ). Soooo... uh, yeah. You can stop getting your testes in a twist over a minor miscounting now.

    • Yuri DeKhed
      Yuri DeKhed

      @VillainousMuse strange then that of the thousands of comments there are on these videos you are the only one to count that there's six and he just happens to state that there are six when quite obviously there are only 5. And if you have been a fan for 10 years you'd k ow that 6 is an odd number for marines, they have always (until primaris arrived) been in 10s and 5s.

    • VillainousMuse

      @Yuri DeKhed No, I have been a fan of Warhammer 40k for over a decade and a half. I do not require someone to explain to me something like this, I was merely commenting on how it accurately represents the threat that a single Astartes poses to the denizens of the galaxy at large.

    • Yuri DeKhed

      @Yuri DeKhed Huh, apparently I miscounted. Could have sworn it was six, only five tho. Hm. No need to be a total dickhead, regardless.

    I can't believe I'm just seeing this now. This... Hell, this is the best Warhammer related video I've ever seen, if not one of the best sci-fi video ever. Hell, it doesn't even contain one word and it left me breathless the whole time. 13min? No. This had to be 3h long. The music. The camera angle. The sound effects. The brutality. The realistic harshness. You can feel nothing has been watered down. You can feel the dreaded futuristic world. You can feel the raw power. You can feel the Warhammer universe. This.... This is perfection.

    • Vedarough

      Games Workshop has already redone the series in 4K but different sounds and music. In my opinion, they ruined it. It was 11/10, now it is 8 or 7/10. Difficult to notice but it doesn't give the same dark and dangerous feeling the original series gives me.

      It is unlikely. The author said he will work for Games Workshop (the company that owns the franchise). He wrapped it up in pretty words but the community feels he was given a choice of either surrender his work or face massive fines in court. Games Workshop has already redone the series in 4K but different sounds and music. In my opinion, they ruined it. It was 11/10, now it is 8 or 7/10. Difficult to notice but it doesn't give the same dark and dangerous feeling the original series gives me.

  • Ninjareaper357

    This is easily one of the best animations I've ever seen... This looks better than pretty much any game cinematic as well. I love the feel of this, no unnecessary dialogue or background music, and the suspense is phenomenal (4:37 and 10:10 for example). Amazing is the best word to describe this as a whole.
