Games Workshop: Animationen & White Dwarf 462

Der Schöpfer der Astartes Filme, Syama Pedersen, arbeitet mit Games Workshop zusammen und es gibt Gratis Spiele im kommenden White Dwarf.

Introducing the Next Wave of Warhammer Animations

Astartes is great, isn’t it? Stunningly rendered Space Marines unflinchingly delivering the Emperor’s justice and looking badass while doing it.

Haven’t seen it yet? Well, the good news is that you don’t have to go far to find it. It’s right here on Warhammer Community.

The Warhammer Animation Team were so impressed that they reached out to Syama, the talented individual behind Astartes, and suggested he come aboard as part of the extended team. A huge Warhammer fan, Syama was enthusiastic about the prospect of making official Warhammer content.

“[I’m] super excited for Astartes to transition to an official project! I never would have thought this would be happening, and I can’t thank the amazing fans enough for their encouragement. It’s been my dream to animate Warhammer 40,000 ever since playing Space Crusade as a kid, and I’m pumped to work with the real deal Warhammer guys at Games Workshop to bring the fans the best Astartes action possible.”

 – Syama Pedersen

That’s right, by the time you’ve finished reading this article, development work will already have begun on a follow-up to Astartes.

And that’s not all. It turns out Syama isn’t the only passionate Warhammer fan making incredible animations. We’re thrilled to announce the Warhammer Animation Team are working with Lost Legion Studios on The Exodite, with PaxelArt on Primaris: The Last Templar, and with Codex Film on Iron Within.

“We at Lost Legion Studios are excited to finally reveal that we’ve been working alongside the Warhammer Animations Team to produce The Exodite! Originally, we were a fan project making content for the community, and to be able to make something official is a dream come true, and we can’t wait to share it with you.”

“We are proud to say that we are working with Games Workshop on a short cinematic series about the Black Templars Space Marines. It is an honour for us to work in a universe we love so much, together with its creators. We want to say a huge thank you for this opportunity, Games Workshop.”

“As long-time Warhammer fans, we’re very excited to combine our passion for the Warhammer hobby with our experience in CGI. It was a surreal feeling when Games Workshop approached us. It brings a lot of new possibilities, and we can’t wait to deliver this story of Iron Warriors and Drukhari to the community!”

– Codex Film

And there’s more! Several other collaborations are in the early stages of development, as well as two brand new shows (in addition to Hammer and Bolter, Angels of Death, and Interrogator) having been scripted and sent into production.

You’ll have to wait a little longer for more news on these. In the meantime, though, join us as we take a first look at The Exodite.

Awesome, right?

A T’au Empire fleet, a stealth suit, some advanced map-tech, and was that a Kroot warsphere?!

We haven’t seen much of the T’au in animation before – it’s a very different aesthetic from the gothic warrior-culture of much of the Imperium, but not without its own mysterious quasi-mystic ways. Forget about culture, though; we can’t wait to see that battlesuit’s fusion blaster in action!

We’ll have more on The Exodite tomorrow, including a rundown of the story and a closer look at some of the shots. And there’ll be a new article every week that will keep you up to date with all the latest Warhammer animation news, giving you the lowdown on Primaris: The Last Templar, Iron Within, and all the others.

Now, there’s one last question that we’re sure you’re dying to have answered: “How will I be able to watch all of these great shows, and when will they be released?” We’ll have more news on all of that really soon. For now, you’ll want to make sure you have a My Warhammer account set up and ready to go.

Get your eyeballs ready – there’s a whole lotta Warhammer coming your way.

Wargames Soldiers and Strategy: Wargaming Umfrage



  • Geilo, hatte mich schon gewundert, warum es nix neues von Astartes gab. Cooler Move von GW. Ich hoffe nur, dass das jetzt nicht hinter nem großen Paywall verschwindet.

    • Ich kenne doch meine gute alte Aktiengesellschaft. Da gibt es nichts geschenkt! Ich wage mal einen Schuss ins Blaue… Da kommt noch ein dicker kostenpflichtiger Rattenschwanz dazu in nächster Zeit! Ich bleibe Gog[dot]com treu, also nichts für mich!

      • Vielleicht gehen sie ja ein Stück den Mattel weg.

        Sie bieten einfach passende Minis zu den Serien an

      • In meiner Blase ist es normal für Unterhaltungsmedien zu zahlen, sei es in Abo Form online, Rundfunkgebühr o.ä.

        Wenn du dich auf die Codes beziehst, hat der damalige gratis Code für total war auch funktioniert. Bisher hat Inkasso Büro Nottingham keine Gebühren im Nachhinein verlangt.

      • Das ist doch perfekte PR. auch ohne paywall. Fans finden es geil. Animationsaffine findens geil und schnappen sich evtl mal was zum Hinergrund für das sie bezahlen müssen, Black Libarary etc. Und irgendwo da verirren sich evtl noch einige die gerne mal was mit er Hand machen zum zugrundeliegenden Wargame oder irgendwas von dem vielen anderen Merchendise. Dann kauft der angefixte videospieler eines der vielen Spiele die nicht von dem Gratis Code abgedeckt werden und evtl etwas zeitgemäßers sind damit die kids auch mehr Eyecandy bekommen, Dawn of war nachfolger und Total War Warhammer 2 + 3 etc. der Code geht ja ohnehin nur an leute die schon interessiert sind und den WD kaufen und dann vom plastik zu den Pixeln verführen macht doch Sinn. Marketingtechnisch ziemlich smarter move der Aktiengesellschafft. Smarter als ihre Kill Team VÖ Politik allemal. Ja, die finde ich blöd, um nicht zu sagen Kundenunfreundlich. Um auch was zum meckern zu haben. 😉

      • Das schöne an einer Aktiengesellschaft ist ja, dass man sich beteiligen kann. Einfach ein paar Aktien kaufen und man freut sich über jede Preiserhöhung :-)))

      • Joa, vielleicht auch einfach nur ein cleverer Marketing-Schachzug. Aber Aktien dieser und anderer profitmaximierender Unternehmen kaufe ich aus moralischen Gründen/ Prinzip nicht und wer Marken, wie LEGO oder Games Workshop aus Prä-AG-Zeiten kennt, weiß wie schädlich dieser Wandel für eine Sparte und seine Produkte sein kann. Ich bin auch ein ziemlich altmodisch denkender Mensch, dass für mich ein Wert nur entstehen kann, wenn jemand dafür eine Leistung erbringt, ergo arbeitet…. also nix Börse!

      • Eben – und wenn GW erst wieder bessere Preis-Leistung bringt, wenn der Gewinn zurückgeht, stehen meine Interessen als Spieler denen eines Aktionärs entgegen.

  • Hmm…die Frage ist nun, wo man sich den in Frankfurt wohl holen kann.
    Bietet der GW shop dort einen Abholservice vorm Laden?

  • In der Liste fehlt mir Warhammer Odyssee. Es ist im Softlaunch, daher wird vermutlich erst später die Werbetrommel gerührt.

  • Wie sich doch dieser Moloch gewandelt hat. Träge, aber doch.
    Erinnere mich noch an Fan-Film-Projekte, die stumpf totgemacht wurden. Anstatt die Unterstützung zu sehen und wie heute sowas zu nutzen, fördern oder in’s eigene Boot zu holen.

  • Die Tonlage, mit der sich GW diese famosen Fanprojekte zueigen macht, finde ich schon etwas speziell. Better late on the bandwagon than never? Nah.
