This guys is a fuckin true believer my god... all homebrew that fits like a snug-bug in with the lore AND looks decidedly fucking awesome.

Absolutely fuckin rock solid. Give him all the moneys.
Doubled the number of patrons he has on patreon since E4 came out, that should help a little. GW really needs to have him doing this full time.

Man he deserves it. I would love to see a passion project like this turn into a full time gig of sorts. If it means Patreon carries him through the next year or more - all the better.

I don't even want to tease myself by trying to imagine how well this dude would handle Orks. Proper, scary, mean HUGE fuckin Orks? And proper fuckin Space Marines carving them the fuck up?? *chefs kiss*

I want you to look at the smoke effect when the bolts detonate off the psychic shield.

0:29-0:32 in the video:



UNBELIEVABLE QUALITY

Something else I thought was really cool was the sound of the Astartes running. I was always a little put off by how Helsreach never had sound effects for their footsteps because I imagined them as being big clunky robot suits, but there's something really cool about how subtly muted the sound is in this and it works. Like you can hear the suit compensating for the steps with shock absorption to make them quieter.

Sound effects are one of the most underrated aspects of film. This guy's talent for detail and effect it amazing.

I love how the Marines press their bolters against the railing to compensate the recoil.



Just so many cool details in this

And it would be so easy to make a sequel. Just include playable Scouts and Terminators. Boom. You now have a whole new game with numerous possibilites at your hands.
There was an expansion for the multiplayer where the king of the hill player in a round became a fucking dreadnought. It was a godamn master class.

Taking tutus into the black templars to keep an eye on him, the inquisition heads towards the last known remnants of nemiroths forces only to find a greater demon of chaos undivided has corrupted a hive city. start at the top and work our way down through the rot.

Writes itself...

Throw in some Necrons or Tyranids while you're at it.

Said this before but the audio design in some of this is fantastic even of you don’t care about the material.

I have always wanted an Inquisitor Action RPG.

Leveling up psyker powers, getting new gear etc.

So much cool shit could be in that game.

And the way the bolter visibly pushes him back before the marine really braces into the shooting. There are so many amazing and intricate details in these videos, they do such a spectacular job of making the action much more believable.
