The Awakening: Unofficial Warhammer 40k Animation is Here!

The Awakening 2The Awakening Warhammer 40k Animation trailer is a super sweet new fan-made video and it’s what we needed right now!

It feels like it’s been an eternity since we’ve seen a 40k animation pop up in the wild and this one more than makes up for the wait, even though it’s just a trailer. It focuses on a small Dark Angels strike team trying to recover some ancient technology and fighting the Necrons! 

This is a cool concept because instead of them just blasting through cultists or daemons, they get a truly ancient and evil foe! Since this is just the trailer it’s still a work in progress, but it already looks amazing.

Gabriel Christtiane has this up on YouTube and has updates on Facebook, and if you like Space Marines, Tech-Priests, or just wild 40k animations in general, you might have to watch this one twice.

The Awakening Warhammer 40k Animation is What We Need!

This already is so epic and we can’t wait to see the whole thing come out! They are really laying down an amazing story and the quality of the animation looks great. Even though it’s only a few minutes long, it hits so many awesome points.

The Awakening 3The trailer starts off with a meeting between the Dark Angels and a Tech-Priest, they are trying to understand the energy signals coming their way. And how they can take advantage of it or destroy it. They even mention, are they awakening?

The Awakening 4They then have to assemble a strike team and enter the Necron Tomb.

The Awakening 6Obviously, when they get inside, it doesn’t take long for the fighting to begin! They don’t show much of the Necrons quite yet, but the combat looks ferocious and quite well done.

The Awakening 7The trailer ends with this Necron symbol, so expect to see more of the ancient evil soon. Will the strike force be strong enough to make it out? Well, come back and see when the full movie is done!
