Fans have taken matters into their own hands, as we haven’t seen a well-known movie producer make an actual Warhammer film.

Let’s take a look at some of the top fanmade 30k- 40k films that are in progress right now. We’ll also be getting the latest word from them in their development!

Top Fanmade 30k-40k Films we Want to See More Of


Moving into the first film, there’s actually two teasers. This is made by a single artist right now. You can check out his Channel called Astartes.

These are two trailers that are basically events happening one after the other. Marines are blessing their boltguns and loading into a breaching pod.

The next trailer shows them literally walking through what looks to be lasgun fire and dealing with some Traitors. The whole filmmaking process is a slow one as the artist is doing it on his own time.

If anyone would like to support me in this project please consider the links below. I work as a contract 3d artist so any donation means less time working for others and more time on Astartes!

You can support the artist on Patreon to help continue this project.

Horus Heresy: Death of Hope

From Project Tetrarch, a Heresy film that’ll give you goosebumps.

The trailer shows events taking place days after the Betrayal at Calth. If you aren’t sure of what happened there, it’s essentially where some Legions revealed themselves to be followers of Chaos and slaughtered unsuspecting Space Marines.

The trailer was posted back in December 2017 and the creator has still been making advancements.

This was the artist’s latest post on facebook. Look at how far the creation has come! Keep checking back for more updates!


Helsreach, by Richard Boylan.

This film has been a journey that the artist has taken the fans along with him. He has been releasing new parts to the story every so often where we can see the advancements.

Helsreach was an amazing book back in 2010, and now Richard Boylan is making it a fanmade movie. Helsreach has us glued to our screens as we keep waiting for more!

There are actually over 10 parts in the series. A single trailer doesn’t do the film justice. Make sure you sit back and watch them.

 Lord Inquisitor

Lord Inquisitor was created by a single artist. The trailer shows the first eight minutes of the film. The Sons of Dorn got a little spotlight action as well!

An Inquisitor goes to deal with a “problem” while the city is distracted by a wonderful parade with Coteaz himself in it.

Sadly, it looks like there haven’t been any advancements from the first film that dropped back in 2016. These creations take a long time to create. Hopefully, there’s more in store for us in the future!

Dawn of War

This last video isn’t fanmade at all. It’s one of the scenes from a game that you’ll have to blow the dust off of. Dawn of War, made by Relic, is still an ageless classic that fans enjoy today. We just thought this clip was too awesome not to post.

What are your favorite 40k fan films? Have you seen all of these before? Do you have some film ideas yourself? Let us know in the comments of our Facebook Hobby Group.
