Good fan amateur depiction of Warhammer 40K
24 January 2012 | by Ornlu WolfjarlSee all my reviews

A planetary defence force guardsman, 3 imperial guards of a penal regiment, a Mechanicus Adept and a psyker are sent to investigate a possible Chaos cult in the depths of a hive on the planet Sancta Heroica.

I enjoyed this film very much. The plot is solid, the atmosphere is quite good and the graphics/effects are very well done considering the whole endeavour cost 15000$. It's more of a thriller than an action film, but it does have its fair share of shootouts and explosions. It's quite dramatic, with a very good story line. The only real negative part is the acting, which can become quite annoying at some points. With the exception of perhaps Nira, Hiero and Zakarius Makkabeus, everyone else emphasises their actions too much and puts too much effort in delivering their lines (almost as if watching a school play). However, the film IS an amateur fan film and by that standards, it's a masterpiece, since it delivers the feel of Warhammer 40K universe, and I think is much better than the Ultramarines: A Warhammer 40K movie. I give it a solid 8/10. I also would have preferred the film to be made in English. German just seemed to stubby.

Unfortunately, before the film was released, the makers and Games Workshop got into a legal battle. GW wouldn't allow the film to be released since it would lose rights for the Warhammer 40K universe, although they did praise the film. The makers, as they stated, didn't consider GW to act malevolently, they were just trying to defend their best interests, but in the end the film didn't get released. Somehow, it has leaked on the internet and can be found in various torrent sites for free. The film has also inspired two new attempts at making fan films of 40K, the German 3D animation Lord Inquisitor (which has gotten a green light from GW and will have support from the company) and the French animation Exterminatus, which is in the process of gathering funds from fans for its production and presumably will be given the go ahead from GW as well.
