Looks like GW are on course for a really interesting new angle to their business. I really hope this is the start of something special. This could really go some way to bringing new people into the 40k hobby which is always great

So a trailer for flying through space?

Hey now, I will have you know that I would happily invest in a Truck Simulator: 40k Edition.


People like to whinge and moan about "the good old days," when things "were cool" and now somehow aren't.
One would think that this energy would be better invested in pursuing things one finds more to one's liking.
Then again, common sense doesn't seem to be all that common.

Personally, the Thunderhawks in that trailer looked way too big in comparison to the Imperial Capital ships.

Looked pretty disappointing. I dont like the tone of color that they opted for, at all. Just not a great style.

 

If you compare it to Astartes... that is just so much better in every way.

Astartes is completely beyond the monetary capability of GW at the moment for anything of similar length.

I like the new Angels of Death trailer. Looks very impressive but there are some things that need correction: Thunderhawk trailing smoke in space (it is space, otherwise there would be visual cues of flying in atmosphere at high speed) and bombardment cannon shooting lance strike. :facepalm:


Eh I can live with that. Normally there wouldn't be sound or proper explosions in space either. Real space battle would be incredibly boring to watch but it's a movie that's supposed to entertain us, not a simulation or documentary.

I think I will wait and see before passing judgement. It does have a very black library feel to what little of the story we have seen though.

Trailer seemed a little too shakey-cam for my taste, but I'm definitely excited to see where the project goes!
The hyperrealistic Sister and Astartes head though...now that has my attention.

This looks promising but I don't think the red splashes work very well.

Hot damn, that trailer is engrossing, enticing and intense. It’s everything Ultramarines wasn’t.

Really looking forward to this, whenever it hits.

Not impressed. Felt like they were trying way too hard for a Frank Miller/Sin City look, plus shaky cam, bad physics with Lego ships, and blah voice acting.

You hit a point here I've not been able to articulate.
Nearly all the critique I've read has been on style or tone, which I have no issue with.
Suspension of disbelief is a subjective concept, for some its easily broken others, like myself, can blindly make it through egregious errors and find enjoyment regardless.

Of all the things going on in this trailer the ship destruction threw me out of the video like explosive decompression. It was precisely Lego like. Where is the super structure, the internal beams and system of bulkheads? The entire midsection of the ship simply fell apart.

Once the initial shock of that parted, I was back in.

I like the detail on the characters, the motion seems clean, the desaturated effect is interesting, hopefully not over done.

So far, barring that ship scene, I'm excited to see more.

It's been just over a year since we were back here, and WarCom have just dropped a new trailer for Angels of Death. It's very arthouse.

Yeah, this is looking pretty good. It'll be interesting to see how many episodes this will be and what sort of end run time, but I have a feeling this could be quite an engrossing story with a big finale when the Hive Fleet we saw in the first trailer shows up.

 

I have high hopes for this.

Event Horizon vibes from the choppy video at the end there. Didn't get to see enough of the marines to judge, but BA v Nids is a classic, hopefully it's done justice.

Judging by the two comletely different stories we have a preview of from Angels of Death, it looks like it will be massive n scope. Genestealer insurrection on the planet, massive tyrranid invasion in space.
