Grey Knights - a stunning teaser trailer for Lord Inquisitor, a fan made Warhammer 40K movie. If you ever wondered how a space marine puts on his bulking armor, now you know. The trailer is even more impressive in that it was rendered in real-time on nothing but a desktop PC, and in full 4k resolution no less, nuts.
I tried to sit down and watch Ultramarines, Games Workshops’ official animated Warhammer 40K film, a few years ago. Made it maybe 15 minutes in. It was awful. Like bad 90’s PC game cinematics. Where official projects fail, however, fan projects can be counted on to succeed. And I don’t think I’ve ever seen a fan project quite like this one.
The Lord Inquisitor is an animated film that, a few of years back, began as a labour of love of just one man, artist and modeller Erasmus Brosdau. He put the trailer you see up top together by himself, an incredible achievement considering it blows the official movie out of the water.
It’s since ballooned out to become a planned 40-minute film, and is now the work of a team, including Warhammer 40K authors and helping hands from employees of places like Crytek and Ubisoft
