Awesome Like Astartes: Two More 40k Short Films You’ve Got to See!
This first film was made back in 2018. It starts with some Guard dug in around some sandbags and slowly losing the fight to some Traitor Guard.
Eventually, a drop pod with a hand full of Astartes drops down and turns the tide of the battle.
We know that on the tabletop, three normal Marines would hardly make a dent pushing back an entire Guard line. However, when it comes to the lore, these dudes are unkillable monsters. Pretty much what this video paints them up to be.
Now, this second video takes things to a new level. At two minutes long, we’ve got the story of some Ultramarines sent in to back up a squad that looks to have lost contact.
It starts with a handful of Traitors hanging out in a corridor getting ready for the assault.
As you’d expect, the battle lasts about five seconds with the Traitors getting shrecked by bolter rounds. They end up finding the lost squad with something being picked up on the auspex.
The Death Guard show up and start cleaving through the Ultramarine’s ranks.
The fighting animations are tight. It’s fast-paced and the Death Guard does a nice job at showing off how tanky they are over normal Marines. Definitely a sweet video!
